The Amazon app store has been around for a while, but it was only in May 2013 that it opened up globally, allowing users in 200 countries to download apps. “We now have 240 million active users,” explained Gupta. “So we have users on our global platform, but purchasing apps using their local credit cards,” he said, underlining that this extended reach has made the store more lucrative for app developers.
Gupta said India is among the top markets for Amazon app store, beyond the locations where it had dedicated apps stores.
