You often come across a number of Indian online shopping sites which offers products at a fixed price and sometime with an offer or discount. There we have little opportunity to communicate with the seller and off-course bargain for better price. One of India’s top online mobile and DTH recharge provider Paytm has come up with an mobile-only shopping app with a twist of bargaining for a deal.
The concept is way simple, before buying a product you can directly communicate with the seller and bargain with him to get a reduced price or heavy discount on the product, like you do in the local bazaar.
The innovative Paytm mobile shopping app features shopping in various categories including Men, Women, Kids fashion and Home furnishing along with Mobile & DTH recharge options. The app will provide real “over the counter” human shopping experience using a text messenger. Here Paytm will use the Plustxt messenger which it acquired in 2013, to allow a fluent bargaining opportunity between the buyer and seller.
How to bargain –
- On your selected item’s detail section choose Bargain to start a one-to-one chat with seller
- Bargain with the seller to get best deal for the product.
- After a successful bargaining seller will offer a bargain code that you can use while check out.
Paytm shopping app has curate more than 100,000 items ranging from Men, Women, Kids fashion and Home Furnishing categories from 250 merchants. It also include the all new Paytm Cash Wallet which is actually a mobile prepaid payment option through which users can add cash from their bank/credit/debit card and use it to shop much faster on the mobile phones.
The Paytm shopping app is currently available to iOS users through Apple iTunes app store and from next week for Android users through Google Play store.
