Amazon has just launched a new service called Sell as Individual, which allows you to sell your used goods. The service is currently only available in Bengaluru. With Sell as Individual, you can sell products locally in your city, and Amazon offers doorstep pick-up, packing, and delivery of used goods you’re selling.
To sell a product, just go to the Sell as Individual page, and you have to fill in a small form, where you choose the category of the product, add a photo, price, and the pickup details. Although there is a city selector in a drop-down menu, Bengaluru is the only option in that menu for now.
Once you’ve made your listing, the product is listed on Amazon.in (as a used product), at the price you have listed.
Other customers can now shop for it as usual, and make the purchase. Amazon will then email you once the product is sold, and schedule a pickup.
It will then come, collect the product, package it, and ship it to the buyer. In case the product it returned by the buyer, Amazon will ship it back to you, at no charge. Once the sale is completed, Amazon will transfer the money to you – minus a small fee.
