The innovative idea of introducing Flipkart Plus will surely a smart move and will surely boost sale from the website soon. But deep down, it looks more like a way to differentiate between a serious and loyal customer from a regular customer.
Amazon Prime currently offers more benefit with its Music & Video streaming service for Prime Members. But since Flipkart Plus is free in comparison to Amazon Prime, it only needs a lot of shopping in order to become eligible for this program.-thetelescope Team
