Differences between Flipkart Plus and Amazon Prime
It’s not first time when Flipkart launched a loyalty program, they started a program before called Flipkart First but didn’t get more success but now wallmart bought Flipkart so we can hope that they will try to make it useful for their Indian customers. In Flipkart Plus you’ll get free delivery, early sale access, exchange coins for offers from partners, There are no option for videos or music.
Amazon’s prime will cost you Rs. 999 for 1 year and Rs. 129 for 1 month and it launched in India in 2016 and running successfully. With amazon prime you’ll get free delivery, free ads free music, free videos. Good thing with amazon is they are delivering products most of the cities while Flipkart’s delivery coverage is not as big as amazon’s.
But as we all know that Flipkart bought by wallmart so maybe we can get some more cool stuff in future and maybe this Flipkart Plus is just a first milestone from wallmart.
