Amazon Prime Lite price in India (expected)
According to OnlyTech, Amazon Prime Lite will be offered at a pricing of Rs 999 per year — in contrast to the standard tier of Amazon Prime price in India being Rs 1,499 per year. To be sure, after an introductory period of the Amazon Prime membership being offered at Rs 999 per year, the company increased its pricing by nearly 50 percent in December 2021.
Now, at this reduced pricing, Amazon will reportedly offer users the benefit of guaranteed, free, two-day delivery of products on the e-commerce platform — in contrast to same-day or one-day deliveries that the standard Prime plan provides. On the streaming front, Amazon Prime Lite will give users the benefit of accessing all the content that standard Prime subscribers get. However, instead of the highest resolution of video streams (of up to 4K), Prime Lite members will only get non-HD streaming, and the number of devices that can access the same account at one time is limited to two. Of the two devices, one has to be a mobile device.
To be sure, Amazon already has a mobile-only streaming plan in India, priced at Rs 599 per year.
Apart from these, Amazon Prime Lite users will not get access to other verticals such as Prime Music, Prime Gaming, e-books and no-cost EMIs on products — all of which are available for the standard tier.
Amazon has not offered an official statement on the beta trial of Prime Lite, so it is not clear as to by when would the company announce the plan officially. More details should surface in the coming days.
