MUMBAI, India (AP) — Amazon.com is coming to India.

It launched a watered-down version of its online shopping portal called Junglee.com on Thursday.

Junglee.com offers 12 million products from over 14,000 Indian and global brands.

The site allows shoppers to compare prices, but most actual purchases must be made through a network of third-party retailers.

Indians will be able to buy shoes from Reebok, computer gadgets from Microsoft India, clothes from Fabindia and luxury leather handbags from Hidesign.

Some items — like the Kindle — are sold by Amazon.com directly, but will be subject to steep international shipping and customs fees.
