Quikr introduces intercity C2C transactions across 900 cities

Leading cross-category classifieds platform Quikr has announced an expansion of its Doorstep service to help its consumers across the country in buying and selling mobiles and tablets.

The company launched Quikr Doorstep last year by integrating digital payments and logistics into C2C transactions, reported The Times of India.

It is India’s only platform to offer modern, secure and safe C2C transactions across the country.

“The intercity dimension takes C2C transactions to a whole new level. Historically, these transactions have been limited by where and when a buyer and seller could meet, exchange products and money. In addition to these obvious obstacles, there were other issues of safety, privacy, quality etc,” said CPO and head of good, Anurag Saran, Quikr.

 “We first addressed these issues by launching our doorstep service – it is more modern, smarter way for consumers to buy and sell, and it has brought us tremendous growth. Intercity takes this smarter solution and amplifies it exponentially by bringing cross-country supply to buyers and demand to sellers,” he added.

“We’ve been amazed at the pace at which intercity has grown – over 30 per cent of transactions happening on Quikr for mobiles are already happening across cities,” said Vice President, Sarath Chandra Gudlavallet from goods vertical of Quikr.

And it’s not just mobiles. We’ve been watching with fascination as consumers across different cities are buying and selling everything from fashion products to collectables to computers to accessories. We think this will change the nature of C2C classifieds in a very fundamental way,” he further added.

Now with intercity transactions, Quikr users will be immediately experiencing even higher supply and demand across categories ranging from computer accessories, video games and cameras to books, health and beauty products, clothes and fashion accessories plus sofa and television too.
