Customers will also be able to enjoy the widest selection on offer while also supporting over a million artisans and weavers from Karigar, lakhs of women entrepreneurs from Saheli, and thousands of start-ups and brands from Launchpad to bounce back and accelerate their growth, he added.
"Each Prime Day, we see sellers launching new products for customers...With high customer interest in the event, we look forward to their success, helping bolster their business as they gradually emerge from the pandemic disruption," he said.
