You can now sell used goods on Amazon’s pick-pack-andpay
To encourage more peer-to-peer sales, ecommerce giant, Amazon has introduced a ‘pick-pack-andpay’ platform, a report by ET said on Tuesday.
Through this initiative, Amazon is providing pick-up and packing services for used goods at the consumer's doorsteps as well as delivering the product to the buyer. The online retailer will only charge a commission once the transaction is complete between the two parties, the report added.
This pilot project which lets and individual sell used goods like mobile phones, tablets, pre-owned watches, books, among other such items, is currently available only in Bengaluru.
The report said that the service is expected to expand to other metros depending on the success of the initiative.
The company’s pick-pack-andpay set up plainly implies that the seller does not have to interact with buyers at all.
Customers can access this feature by going into their account settings and clicking on ‘Manage Your Seller Account,’ and thereafter listing the goods and its respective description.
The e-commerce platform is looking to increase its user base among smaller sellers who may not be able to sell as a business, the report added.
In June last year, Amazon owned website Junglee had launched a similar pilot service to sell used goods.
