Amazon India Now Lets you Post an Ad and Sell as an Individual

After announcing a section dedicated to selling refurbished phones Amazon has now sprung open the gates for individual sellers to list their phones on the site. The ‘Sell as an Individual’ option allows you to sell used products. Amazon has leveraged one of the biggest advantages it has over other sites like Olx and Quikr, the logistics. The seller can not only list the products on but can be rest assured that the product will be shipped to the buyer and this will include packaging, pick-up, and delivery.

If you intend to Sell as an Individual head over to this section and fill up the form by choosing the category of the product, adding relevant description and photo and also the pickup details. As of now, the city dropdown lists only Bengaluru and it won’t is surprising if Amazon India introduces the same in other cities as well.

After listing the product on Amazon India the buyers can have a look at it and if desired can but it as they would do with a new handset. Once the purchase is made Amazon will reach out to you and schedule a pickup. Suppose the customer intends to return the product Amazon will ship it back to you at no extra costs. On the other hand, once the sale is complete Amazon will transfer the amount to your account and will deduct a fee for its service. Thankfully one doesn’t need to wait for too long as Amazon promises that you will get your money in 3-5 days.


What’s more interesting is the fees, will deduct Rs 10 for item value below Rs1000, Rs 50 for items sold between Rs 1000- Rs 5000 and Rs 100 for items valued above Rs 5000. The fees is very nominal considering the efforts one puts to sell his wares on listing sites like OLX and Quikr.

As an incentive, will also be offering Rs 1,000 as Amazon Pay Balance if you manage to sell either five books, video games, movies, music or one mobile phone/tablet/laptop. With this service, plans to tackle the shortcomings of listing sites, for instance selling on Olx is quite depressing especially since you have to entertain a slew of phone calls and also need to take care of the logistics. That said Quikr had announced a similar service earlier but the convenience fees were very high.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
