Ease of doing business for MSMEs: Ahead of this year’s Prime Day sale on July 15 and 16, Amazon India has launched Sale Event Planner, a new tool to help sellers work on the preparation of upcoming and/or ongoing events on Amazon.in. The planner is available on the Amazon Seller app for sellers to become aware of the events in advance.
Amazon said sellers can use this tool to opt-in to offer great deals on the sale event and get recommendations on optimum inventory to stock up, which are among the most important things to do to potentially maximize sales during an event. “It will be available to all sellers with at least one deal recommendation and use the seller app,” Amazon India said in a statement.

Our approach at Amazon has always been to use technology as an enabler for sellers across India to scale up their business by catering to customers anywhere in India, using e-commerce,” he said.
