“ It’s not like people do n’t have data connectivity or indeed the Amazon app on their phones, but they face challenges of knowing how to use it to their advantage. And that’s where I step by, to help them make informed purchasing opinions and also having it delivered to them through my Amazon Easy store,” says Ankit Jain.
Ankit Jain is the proprietor of a book store, Jain Book Depot, in the small city of Raisinghnagar in Rajasthan. He first heard about the Easy Store programme from an announcement posted on his community network. Curious, he went online to learn further about it and ended up getting a part of the Amazon Easy Store network.
“ My regular guests as well as new guests from the neighbourhood frequently face problems with online shopping, particularly when they’ve to make major purchase opinions involving consumer durables like refrigerators, washing machines or Television sets. Indeed if they’ve digital access, which numerous of them do n’t, they’re unfit to make a decision grounded on the product reviews and conditions. That’s why they come to my shop and I help them with the right suggestions grounded on their requirements and budgets,” shares Ankit Jain.
Easing the digital trip of India’s small businesses
To ease the online shopping gests of guests who aren’t digitally veritably smart, the Easy Store format allows them to place orders on Amazon’s online business with guided backing from the store staff. These stores also allow guests to pick up their orders directly from the store or get them delivered to their doorsteps.
Amazon Easy flagship stores
Piloted back in 2015, the Amazon Easy Store has expanded across countries and union homes in the country through two different formats. One of these is the Amazon Easy flagship store format where Amazon determines a client’s entire store experience. All flagship stores have physical products fromAmazon.in on display and they also offer pick-up and delivery services to guests. The other is the participated store format where Amazon appoints associates from neighbourhood shops similar as original kirana stores, apothecaries and stationery stores, like that of Satya, Nishant Yadav and Ankit Jain. These small business possessors with their own retail stores also give Amazon Easy services alongside their primary businesses.
Irrespective of the store format, all Amazon Easy store possessors are trained to help guests find, decide and buy products of their choice from the Amazon business. Guests who grapple with digital access can walk into their original Amazon Easy Store for backing, where the store staff help them browse and elect products, produce their Amazon accounts, place orders and checkout to buy.
Amazon.in has also enabled store possessors with its last- afar delivery programme, “ I Have Space”, which helps them deliver packages to guests in their original neighbourhoods and also facilitates guests to pick-up packages from their stores.
