EBay India has partnered with shopyourworld.com to introduce Black Friday sale in India, which will be held from November 21 to November 30, 2014.
Under the offer, eBay will offer the bargains on US-based products at India pricing as well as free shipping across the country through products purchased via Global Easy Buy, eBay India said in a statement.
Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the US, often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. It is known for best deals on products and is the biggest shopping day in the country.
“We are delighted to provide Indian consumers easy access to the best of Black Friday deals on products available in the US and that too in real time.
“Along with ShopYourWorld.com, we will be listing over 10,000 deals on ebay.in under the Black Friday sale,” eBay India director and business head Vidmay Naini said.
These products will be available to consumers in Indian rupees at a price which will be inclusive of all import duties, international shipping charges and other charges as applicable in India, it added.
During the sale, customers can look forward to purchasing technology and lifestyle products at discounts up to 80%.
E-commerce in India is growing at a massive pace. According to reports, the segment is expected to grow from about $3 billion to $15 billion in the next two years.
Major players like Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon have, in the last two months, offered discount schemes on specific days, in sync with the festive season in the country.
In December, tech giant Google will host the third edition of its annual Great Online Shopping Festival (GOSF), which will see participation from e-commerce players as well as large FMCG and consumer durable brands.
