Flipkart raises $1.4 billion in a bid to go head-to-head with Amazon

Commentary

India’s largest ecommerce site Flipkart has recently closed a massive funding round of $1.4 billion from Microsoft, eBay, and Tencent. It has also acquired eBay India. According to sources, the new funds will be used to strengthen Flipkart’s firepower to tackle major players like Amazon and Alibaba. Talks are also rife that Flipkart is planning to merge with local rival Snapdeal, which is backed by Japan’s Softbank. If the merger between Flipkart and Snapdeal finally occurs, it will soon become a three-way fight between Amazon, Flipkart, and Paytm, which has Alibaba as its biggest stakeholder. India’s ecommerce market is the second largest in the world next to China, and projected to be worth $47 billion by 2020.
