Snapdeal goes OLX way introduces Reglobe
Online marketplace Snapdeal has recently launched a new Value Added Service for its customers which would allow them to sell their used gadgets through the website. Similar to what other online classified sites like OLX and Quikr do, but Snapdeal is the first eCommerce website that has come up with such an initiative.
Snapdeal’s Reglobe feature is quite similar to what Budli is doing. One needs to enter the model of the phone they want to sell. If the particular gadget is accepted by the site, the user needs to fill in its condition to get a price quote.
If the user is satisfied with the quote they can schedule a pickup or drop-off and get paid in cash instantly after the product is physically verified by the ReGlobe technician. But in case of any discrepancies between the details filled online and the actual condition of the gadget, the technician will revise the quote and if the new amount is agreed upon by both parties, the payment will be made on the spot.
For now, few products that can be resold via Reglobe include laptops, mobiles and tablets and the pick-up services are available in Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Noida, Ghaziabad, Mumbai, Bangalore, Secunderabad and Hyderabad. The company is expected to add more product options and pick up facilities in more cities in the coming time.
The second space has gained traction online with Greendust like big players in this space and a recent startup Budli.
