Source: Flipkart, Amazon And Snapdeal Just Got A New Competitor, China's Alibaba To Enter Indian Market

The already crowded e-commerce sector in India is all set to have a new and formidable player - Chinese e-commerce major Alibaba.

The company is planning to enter India this year and is looking at opportunities to build the business organically or through other means.

"We are planning to enter the e-commerce business in India in 2016. We have been exploring very carefully the e-commerce opportunity in this country, which we think is very exciting on the backdrop of Digital India," Alibaba Group President J Michael Evans said.

Alibaba is reportedly very keen to come to India in a very big way, particularly in the e-commerce segment.

The company is exploring the potential of whether to go on their own or set up shop with someone else.

Alibaba's entry into the Indian market will be an interesting scenario as Ma already has investments in two rival Indian brands, namely Snapdeal and Paytm.

Last month there were also reports that Ma was in talks with Flipkart on acquiring stakes.

Alibaba is basically a wholesale seller. However they also sell retail through Ali Express.

That's very sweet to hear. I was using Ali express but shipping worries me a lot takes around 45 days. So starting here would make much more better in delivery.. yaaayyyy :heart_NF:
