PV Sindhu, who conducted a live broadcast and spoke about her go-to badminton racquets and shuttles that she buys from Amazon, and Parineeti Chopra, among others, were among the popular personalities. Kishor Thota, director of customer experience and marketing at Amazon India, told that the goal is to make shopping more fun and meaningful for customers while allowing companies to connect with them more deeply. Before making an online purchase in India, buyers are still looking for familiarity and trust, therefore they seek advice from a variety of sources. “The live communication approach enhances customer’s trust in the products, Services, and the platform.” E-commerce contributes to just around 5% of total retail sales. therefore, live stream Shopping is still in its early stages,” he added.

Amazon’s debut comes after Flipkart tested and offered a comparable product on its app earlier in 2022. Most internet users have not yet made their first online purchase, and e-tailers have been experimenting with numerous methods to engage this group and get them to utilize their applications and websites. Because the Indian digital user population is one of the most ardent video viewing Internet user bases in the world, interactive video content has been one method of attracting consumers to online shopping.
