At a time when major electronic stores such as Amazon sell a variety of products from brands and other companies, it also sells products of affiliated companies. This is normal, many of the other companies doing the same thing also, but it seems that the Indian government wants to ban such practices in her country.
The beginning of 2019, it seems that the Indian government will prevent e-shops from selling their own products. It is also expected that the provision of these new companies from entering into agreements exclusively with sellers, this means that these companies will not be able to use the exclusive products as a means to attract more customers.
According to the Indian Ministry of Commerce, has stated by saying : ” We will not allow any company to own shares in an electronic shop or any company incubator follow-up letter or any company that manages electronic store, sells its products on the platform operated by that company “.
While this sounds like it would make the market more ” fair“, some analysts believe that this decision will affect the e-commerce sector in the country in a negative way. This comes in the wake of complaints from many of the retailers in India who feel that the major electronic stores such as Amazon and FlipKart used their power to sell products at extremely low prices, a price that they can’t provide to their customers.
