Samsung to launch its own online store in India
After Nokia’s partnership with Indiatimes to launch an official estore, Samsung is working on launching its own online store, https://www.samsungindiaestore.com. All orders on the Samsung India eStore are being executed by Savex computers limited, (national distributor for Samsung India Electronics) which will also handle the delivery and logistics part of the shopping experience.
The site currently lists Samsung products under Mobiles, Tablets, Laptops, Netbooks and Accessories category and offers free shipping (important to note that they do not sell home appliance products online).
As far as pricing is concerned, the products are priced a bit higher than other ecommerce merchants (like Flipkart/Infibeam). But if you are the kind who always goes to original brand stores in the offline world, this serves as the online version of the same.
Though the online store hasn’t been announced officially (most of the products are ‘out of stock’), we certainly hope that Samsung goes a good job of integrating the domain, Samsung.com with its online store passing on the relevant traffic to the estore.
