With the beginning of the festive season, India’s largest mobile payments and commerce platform, Paytm has also joined the league with its Maha Bazaar Sale from 12-14th October in the run up to the biggest shopping season in the country.
Over 10,000 of the 1.3 lakh Paytm merchants across India would contribute over Rs 100 crore in cashback this festive season. Small and medium sellers across the country secure orders for up to 500-600 items, clocking in over Rs 4-5 crore in sales over the last 2 years. This has created a great avenue for offline merchants to come online with their varied categories that customers buy offline from the local market.
This festive season, a wide range of categories including fashion led by ethnic wear, gifts and sweets, mobiles, consumer durables and home furnishings will feature exciting promotions on Paytm. Customers will continue to enjoy the company’s ‘Best Price Guarantee’ across all categories as Paytm merchants host unmatched cashback offers.
Vice President – Paytm, Saurabh Vashishtha expressed his enthusiasm about the festive sale, “Diwali is the biggest shopping season in India and the special offers on Paytm will add further delight to this year’s celebrations. We believe that we will deliver a great experience to our consumers and sellers this Diwali. This is in line with our vision to position ourselves in the Indian consumer’s mind as the one-stop destination for value-driven online shopping.”
The Paytm marketplace has invested significantly in offering warehousing facilities at up to 90 per cent discount at its 19 fulfillment centers, free consolidation centers at 35 locations and additional manpower to ensure faster and smoother operations during the peak season.
The company’s simple and intuitive seller platform is now available in 7 Indic languages, and pre-sale expert advice has also gone a long way in improving seller productivity. Paytm is the first online marketplace company in the country to offer multiple regional language support for its sellers. With this, Paytm has further expanded its reach to thousands of merchants across the country, thus making mobile commerce more inclusive and spreading festive joy.
Paytm’s distinct Maha Bazaar Sale is yet another step in the direction of the platform’s consistent success in creating a unique presence in the Indian mobile commerce sector. This year’s Maha Bazaar Sale will further cement Paytm’s position as the only platform one has to turn to for all festive shopping.
