    The development comes even as its rival Flipkart applied for government licences to set up a new local entity, Flipkart Farmermart, which will focus on food retailing in India. Flipkart is expected to pump in 2,000 crore initially in the business, with further investments as it expands the supply chain, storage and logistics for the new business.

Further, its sales grew 55% to 7,778 crore in 2018-19 over the previous fiscal year. Even as Amazon Seller Services cut losses, it was hit by the poor performance of its payments business. Amazon Pay India, which competes with the likes of Paytm, Flipkart’s PhonePe and Google Pay, recorded widening losses of 1,160.8 crore in FY19 from 334.20 crore in FY18, as per Tofler. Amazon’s combined losses in India in 2018-19 were over 7,000 crore.
  • Flipkart has reportedly dominated the festive sales season this year, with around 60% share of the standalone gross merchandise value (GMV). Along with Flipkart group entities such as Myntra and Jabong, it has around 63% market share in India, according to the 8 October report by market research firm RedSeer Consulting. Last year, Flipkart had a 51% share of festive season sales. Amazon had a 30% market share during the festive season sale, the RedSeer report added. Other online retailers commanded just 10% of the overall festival sales in 2019, down from 18% last year.

The combined festival sales in 2019, largely led by the mobile phone category in terms of GMV, were 30% higher than what the two companies had generated in 2018. Flipkart and Amazon clocked $2.3 billion in GMV in 2018, up 77% from the 2017 event.
