Just three years after setting foot, Amazon seems ready to take its next step with the launch of its premium service Amazon Prime in the country next month, MakTech said on its blog.

Earlier this year, Amazon became the most trusted e-commerce brand in India.

The tech blog found a mention of Amazon Prime in Amazon India website's source code. The glimpse of Amazon Prime in the source code goes on to suggest that the service will have two-days delivery to offer. The service would be launched with a 30 days free trial.

"Introducing Amazon Prime: FREE Guaranteed Two-Day Delivery. With Amazon Prime, you get fast delivery on lakhs of eligible items. No minimum order size. Start your 30-day free trial," reads the source code.

In the US, the Prime service was launched in 2005. It costs $99 (approx Rs 5,946) per year and a discounted membership for students at $39.

The source code doesn't mention subscription charges for India.

The membership is not restricted to buying products on the website. The users can also access other Amazon products like Instant Videos, Kindle Lending Library. (SH)
