I personally always check the pre-owned listings before buying an item, as i may luckily find a good stuff at just below half the price of original. To ease the search between the new and pre-owned items Amazon powered India’s comparison-shopping website Junglee (Junglee.com) has joined hands with one of India’s leading classifieds website Quikr (Quikr.com). With this partnership those surfing Junglee can can compare side-by-side prices of new products across hundreds of Indian shopping site along with locally available pre-owned products that are listed on Quikr.
According to Junglee the relevant classified listing will be available under the section titled ‘Related Product Listings’ along side with the product page. Users can view the pre-owned listing based on their location. Currently the new feature is available to users across ten Indian cities including Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi and Pune, with new cities added in the near future. Also the ‘Related Product Listings’ has been introduced only for the consumer electronics category.
“By adding Quikr to Junglee, we have expanded the buying options available to customers, and made the comparison between new and pre-owned items across online and offline local sellers, that much easier.” commented Mahendra Nerurkar, General Manager, Junglee.
“Our partnership with Junglee.com will ensure that brand Quikr continues to stay visible in the larger context of buying and selling online.” said Pranay Chulet, CEO, Quikr.
So now when you search for price comparison on a new smartphone, you can also go through the local pre-owned deals which can save you some money.
