Spirituality just a click away @ ShopClues.com

New Delhi, 8th April 2014: ShopClues.com, India’s first and largest managed marketplace, delighted online shoppers yet again with the launch of an innovative category for “Spiritual” products. This dedicated category is very ‘Indian’ in its orientation and is testimony to the fact that spirituality is a way of life even among modern-day Indians. The idea is to offer a holistic assortment of spiritual, religious and divinity products at very attractive prices to the value-seeking Indian.

According to Sanjay Sethi, CEO & Co-Founder, ShopClues, “We observed a steadily growing demand for icons of spirituality that invoke a sense of well-being in our surroundings – puja items actively purchased around festivals, Vaastu or FengShui products, Zodiac sign jewellery, etc. But, despite the heavy demand, this category is largely unstructured and populated only by very small, local merchants. Shopclues brings several of these suppliers together to offer a rich catalogue of spiritual and divinity products, all under one url !

Spirituality seekers can find all sorts of Fengshui and holistic products along with Gemstones, Rudraksha, Zodiac Symbolic Jewellery to satisfy their needs. They can also find a wide selection of home decor items, like mandirs, puja thalis, paintings, swastikas, chowkis among others. A special selection of Devotional Music CDs and books is a highlight.

ShopClues launches India’s first Online WholeSale Marketplace

New Delhi, 14th March 2014: ShopClues.com, India’s first and largest fully-managed, online marketplace today opened the doors to its WholeSale marketplace. ShopClues is the first e-commerce company in India to offer an online platform for wholesale transactions. This new platform will be the part of the main ShopClues.com site.

While the ShopClues WholeSale Marketplace gives buyers the benefit of purchasing bulk quantities at very attractive wholesale prices, it gives hundreds of wholesale merchants an avenue to take their business online for buying or selling. So, instead of simply listing their wholesale merchandise on an online directory, merchants can now get their own branded online storefront and buy-now facility, backed by ShopClues’s award-winning technology, marketing, merchandizing, cataloguing, payment, fulfilment and customers support services. All the items bought and sold in ShopClues WholeSale are also covered by ShopClues’s Buyer Protection Policy, which is India’s best money back guarantee program.

"The ShopClues WholeSale Marketplace is a novel concept for Indian ecommerce, but we see it as our next logical step after successfully building our merchant-to-consumer business. As India’s largest online marketplace, ShopClues gives the assurance of wide variety and high quality products at lowest possible prices to wholesale buyers. We expect to get maximum response for products and brands that have strong appeal in tier 2/3 cities, so that small merchants can buy products from Shopclues and sell them in their local markets," says Sanjay Sethi, CEO & Co-Founder, ShopClues.com.

Last year, we launched the Official Brand Stores and the National Retail Heritage initiative. With the launch of ShopClues WholeSale, we continue to give our customers and merchants more choices for marketplace shopping formats, added Sanjay.

To participate in ShopClues WholeSale, buyers have to register for the Clues Club membership and must be willing to purchase minimum 10 numbers of a product from any of the categories such as computers, mobiles, storage devices, electronics, perfumes, home décor items, kitchenware, auto accessories, etc. As a limited period offer, the Clues Club annual membership fee of Rs.999 is waived off for the first year, for members registering before 31st December 2014.

ShopClues WholeSale is a phenomenal opportunity for the 15 million small and medium businesses in India who buy and sell something for living, as well as for our retail customers and enterprises who can benefit from the wholesale prices offered on bulk quantities. Already, more than 20,000 people have registered for the Clues Club membership, which is pre-requisite to participate in ShopClues WholeSale,” says Radhika Ghai Aggarwal, CMO & Co-founder, ShopClues.com.

ShopClues WholeSale Marketplace offers two formats - minimum order quantity and fixed lot. As a marketplace, ShopClues does not dictate prices and sellers are free to price their wholesale products as they wish. Wholesale buyers can make payments via Net Banking, Credit Card or Debit Card with options for all the major banks. Further, they can also use ShopClues Gift Certificates for transactions. However, Cash on Delivery is not available for the wholesale products. So, merchants can choose which side of the transaction they want to be – a buyer or a seller or perhaps both.

Given its large base of over 35,000 sellers, the ease of placing orders online, its extensive catalog of +4 million products, secure payment options and robust delivery mechanism, ShopClues expects healthy sales from the wholesale segment too.

ShopClues.com records bumper sales during festive season

New Delhi, India, (November 20th, 2013). Riding high on the festive spirit, ShopClues.com, India’s first and fully managed marketplace, has witnessed 55% growth in sales so far in the last quarter of the year. More than half the orders came from non-metro cities as hefty discounts, prompt delivery and the convenience of shopping anytime from their homes attracted customers to ShopClues.
ShopClues offered attractive discounts of up to 75% across product categories with the promise of “Big Range, Bigger Discount and Biggest Savings” at its “Diwali Mega Mall”. Fashion and accessories, home décor, laptops, mobile phones and tablets, cameras proved to be the most popular categories. Other categories where sales performance exceeded expectations include electronics and home appliances, auto accessories, kitchenware, perfumes and toys.

"We've observed a perceivable hike in uptake of Diwali products this year. Shopclues offered the largest collection of Diwali lights and decoration items, which received a very good response. The trend was especially prominent in smaller towns where buyers clearly preferred to shop from the vast variety of products available online than buy from local bazaar," said Sanjay Sethi, CEO & Co-Founder, ShopClues. Festive season specials such as gold coins, jewellery, ethnic-wear, mithai and dry-fruits also found their way easily into shopping carts.

More than half the sales this Diwali came from non-metro cities like Jaipur, Ahemdabad, Pune and Lucknow, with substantial numbers clocking from the likes of Patiala, Rajkot, Ernakulam, Ranchi and Mysore. Buyers from tier 2-3 cities even picked up products from seemingly unconventional categories like gardening implements, fitness equipment, housekeeping and cleaning products, home-theater systems, etc.

Besides the convenience of shopping comfortably from home, the attractive deals and discounts offered by online sites were key drivers for customers. According to Radhika Aggarwal, Corporate VP – Marketing & Merchandising & Co-Founder, "Being sensitive to the macro-environment, the customer today is thrifty and looks for good deals and discounts. Some of our innovative offers in the ShopClues Diwali Mega Mall attracted even new customers to our site, like the steel kitchenware sale or the Bollywood saree sale."

Shopclues recently launched a novel initiative called the National Retail Heritage featuring more than 40,000 products like handicrafts, textile and jewelery, from 10 iconic marketplaces of India, including Agra, Jaipur, Panipat. Lucknow, Ludhiana and Nai Sadak and Nehru Place in Delhi, among others. In the Diwali season, NRH is offering popular sweetmeats from 4 Indian cities – Agra’s Panchii Petha, Lonavala’s Chikki, Rajasthani Soan Papri and Kanpur’s Thaggu Ladoo. “ShopClues is a true reflection of how India likes to shop and with this exciting initiative we have brought the Best of India to your doorstep,” said Radhika Aggarwal.
In keeping with the spirit of Diwali, ShopClues urged customers to experience the joy of giving by shopping from the special Share a Smile catalog, where 10% of the sale proceeds went to an NGO-Indha.

Sales of gift certificates also saw a spurt this month as several large enterprises placed bulk orders for gifting to their staff. Other interesting trends include the clearly evident rise in the proportion of women-shoppers who are now contributing over 30% to sales. Also ShopClues saw a rise in pre-paid orders even as its affiliates and partner banks like Axis Bank, SBI, HDFC and ICICI offered deeper discounts on their cards.

ShopClues raises third round of funding; Nexus and Helion invest

New Delhi, India, (15th March 2013). ShopClues.com, India's first and largest managed marketplace has successfully completed its third round of funding. In a tough market, the company raised close to $10 million (Rs. 54 crores) from Helion Venture Partners and Nexus Venture Partners. Nexus Venture Partners had previously led the Series A investment in the company in Feb 2012. With this round, ShopClues.com has raised over $15 million in capital so far. Anup Gupta from Nexus had joined the board last year, which has now been expanded with Sanjeev Aggarwal from Helion.

ShopClues has a line-up of world-class investors. Series B investors include top VC firms Helion and Nexus and also a leading Japanese Internet company. In Feb 2012, the company had raised Series A from Nexus and founder of one of the largest marketplaces in the world. Prior to Series A, ShopClues had raised a round (in Aug. 2011) from marquee angels including and early employees of companies like Google, Netscape and many serial entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley.

The gross revenue transacted on the platform is up nearly 110 times from February 2012 to February 2013. ShopClues had started in Nov 2011 and is perhaps the fastest growing E-Commerce platform company in India.ShopClues.com took India by surprise by coming up with a totally unique approach to E-Commerce and launched India's first managed marketplace. The model turned out to be highly disruptive making ShopClues is among the fastest growing E-Commerce destinations in India. ShopClues is empowering thousand of merchants across India to sell online using ShopClues as a platform. ShopClues has one of the largest catalog of products and brands in India with very low prices.

"Even as online retail comes of age in India with over 10 million users, there are several small and medium businesses in the country that struggle to garner a toe-hold in this growing marketplace. This is exactly what ShopClues.com wants to address. At least a third of the 30 million SMBs will benefit from the visibility and marketplace that we offer, albeit at lower transactional costs than doing it alone, all by themselves", says Sandeep Aggarwal, Founder and CEO of ShopClues.com

"We believe that the time is ripe for smaller business to jump onto the online retail bandwagon, given the deep entrenchment of online shopping among Indian consumers. In fact, smaller business may lose their share of the marketplace if they do not have an online strategy in place. This is why ShopClues.com is relevant, and the platform has already proved invaluable to numerous merchants. On the consumer front, ShopClues.com offers a great comparison engine, a vital shopping tool. Moreover, the growth that we've seen in this company is proof of its leadership and vision", says Sanjeev Aggarwal, Senior Managing Director, Helion Advisors.
