February 10, 2020 / 91mobiles

It was recently reported by The Economic Times that brick and mortar smartphone retailers were being asked to register on Amazon Pay by Samsung. 91mobiles has now learned that Samsung has withdrawn the Amazon Pay cashback promotion in offline retail stores following a letter sent by the All India Mobile Retailers Association (AIMRA). In its letter, AIMRA stated, “We believe Samsung is aware that a CCI (Competition Commission of India) inquiry has been initiated against the business practices of Amazon and Flipkart. Online portals are indulging in unfair and unethical business with the help of brands, especially Samsung. Today, Samsung is the only brand with a tie-up for exclusive products, like the Samsung-M Series, with online channels.”
