Amazon Expands Kindle Business To India

After opening up in various European markets last year and announcing a move into Japan earlier this summer, Amazon has expanded its global push by opening its Kindle business in India.

AppNewser has more: “Kindle India launches with more than a million titles priced in Indian Rupees. The India Kindle Store features titles from around the world including various works from Indian authors, including Chetan BhagatAshwin SanghiRavinder Singh and Amish Tripathi.”

Amazon first launched its e-commerce site in India back in February. Like Amazon.com, Junglee.com, the Indian storefront sells everything from books and electronics to shoes and baby toys.

With the launch of the Kindle store in India, Amazon is also opening its Kindle Direct Publishing platform, the company’s self-publishing platform, in India. Indian authors can use the platform to publish their works in Kindle stores around the world, setting prices specific for India, and receiving royalty payments in rupees.
