GetitBazaar, an open marketplace for eCommerce, has partnered with Singtel backed Shopify, an eCommerce Saas platform, to provide the SMEs associated with it, an opportunity to have an independent eCommerce website. The firm also made a tie up with domain name provider HostGator to provide sellers their own domain name thereby bringing value addition to the sellers associated.
The independent eCommerce platform and domain name will be available at an annual costing of INR 25000+taxes with no additional payment gateway charges. However, a nominal fees starting from INR100+taxes will be levied on the integrated order processing and payment collection mechanism offered by Getitbazaar.
The sellers not willing to avail the independent domain name offer, can continue with the standard Getitbazaar free store on the marketplace.
