The integrated offering allows businesses to scale and grow their business at low operational costs by leverage on Amazon’s investments in payments, logistics, transportation and customer service.
Instead of having separate or own accounts and maintain them, retailers can ask their buyers to use Amazon account and get their products delivered using its logistics network and save on overheads.
“On receiving an order from a customer online, merchants (e-retailers) can intimate us to pick up the package and deliver to their customers by our delivery boys,” Agarwal pointed out.
Buyers on registered e-commerce websites, which accept “Pay with Amazon” can use payment methods stored in their Amazon account to pay for goods.
