Newly launched feature to add value for both
customers & merchants with the innovative discovery matrix
New Delhi, August 13, 2015: ShopClues, India’s first and largest managed marketplace is set to redefine online shopping norms with its latest offering – the Neighbourhood Market. With this new feature, ShopClues will create opportunities for localised sellers to showcase their products to buyers near them across mobile and web platforms. Additionally, customers in India, who are more comfortable shopping from a seller near them, can browse through the products of merchants in their vicinity from the comfort of their homes. The discovery engine selects and brings forth deals and merchandise of local vendors, spread across all categories for an easy purchase experience.
The Neighbourhood Market will also provide customers with best prices along with faster delivery timelines, speedier complaint resolution and quicker return protocol. ShopClues is targeting a reduced delivery time of 4 hours with this initiative.
