By : |May 27, 2014 0

NEW DELHI, INDIA:, launched Snapdeal Plus service for sellers. The company has opened 40 fulfillment centers across 15 cities in the country, enabling expansion of same day delivery service for its 30,000+ sellers.

With the plan to expand this service to 30 cities within this year, Snapdeal Plus service will enable businesses especially small and medium sized businesses to sell products on the marketplace platform to across 5000+ towns and cities in the country. 1000 sellers are a part of the Snapdeal Plus service.

The service will enhance shopping experience for customers on the site with the shipping time after the order being placed for majority of the products shrinking from 24 hours to 2 hours, the company said.

The service allows sellers to stock their inventory at the nearest Snapdeal fulfillment centre where the orders, once placed by customers, will be shipped within 2 hours.

Sellers are being provided with analytics and reports based on their past sales which will enable them to predict the level of inventory which they need to maintain at the fulfillment centers. The seller continues to own his/her inventory at all times.

Rohit Bansal, co-founder and COO, said: “Our vision is to partner with 100,000 sellers in the next 12 months and to create an ecosystem that allows businesses to sell online. Indian retail sector primarily comprises of small and medium sized businesses that often do not have the necessary infrastructure, resources and know-how to process and ship products directly to customers. Snapdeal Plus will enable sellers to supply locally and sell nationally, hence expanding their reach. Given the rapid traction we have already witnessed for this service, within the next 6 months, over 75 percent of the orders placed on will be fulfilled through this service.”
