E-commerce market in India will likely to touch $38 billion mark in the year 2016, a massive 67 per cent jump over the $23 billion revenues for 2015, reveals the latest paper by ASSOCHAM. The        E-commerce industry has witnessed an unprecedented growth of 52 per cent over 2015 and has emerged as one of the fastest growing sectors. “Increasing internet and mobile penetration, growing acceptability of online payments and favorable demographics has provided the ecommerce sector in India the unique opportunity to companies connect with their customers”, adds ASSOCHAM paper. With the buying trends during 2015 have witnessed a significant upward movement due to aggressive online discounts, rising fuel price and wider and abundant choice will hit the ecommerce industry in 2016.

On the other hand, mobile commerce (m-commerce) is growing rapidly as a stable and secure supplement to the e-commerce industry. Shopping online through smart phones is proving to be a game changer, and industry leaders believe that m-commerce could contribute up to 70% of their total revenues There exists a big gap between demand and supply for practical need of personalized and customized approach and services and realized that there is a huge untapped market though unorganized with many unaddressed problems.

ShopZippy was started with the aim of reaching out to the millions of Rural and Semi urban base without much efforts and practical approach with first of its kind Assisted eCommerce Services in Indian Market. This startup can also handle those customers who require services like personalized commerce from Initiation to Fulfillment as well as payments with various modes including COD through their sister concern CORPSERV.

ShopZippy claims that they are the one and only company providing free services and options for buyers in Assisted Commerce Space for now. Even if there are other players, SZ stands to have the first mover advantage. ShopZippy is a standalone integrated 1-click household name for rural buyers

What the company does:-

  •  Provides marketing/services through promotions time to time
  • Supports flexi payments even in Remote places  
  • First of its kind of company offering free E-commerce services with personalized touch
  • Retry framework with seamless integration, high standards of service in Regional Language with 24/7 local support

 

How it started :

As per the CEO Ranadheer Reddy, “Being a cross border business expert and serial entrepreneur, myself is a big toaster for Ecom. I buy most things online. Interestingly, during my personal dealings with present e-com companies in India, I noticed that there exists a big gap between demand and supply for practical need of personalized and customized approach and services. I realized that there is a huge untapped market though unorganized with many unaddressed problems. This realization by me led me to found ShopZippy”

ShopZippy is first of its kind concierge style free personalized shopping service where commerce can be done via Missed Call/SMS or even WhatsApp. This is in addition to the personalized shopping and flexible package delivery on-demand service that is offered.

Ranadheer adds, “I believes that E-com has a huge opportunity in India and still 80 percent of it is untapped. More and more people are getting used with E-commerce and benefits associated with it. I observed that even small towns/villages people know brands such as Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon which is just surprising. Through our innovative cutting-edge technology, ShopZippy is turning out to be personal shopping assistant for all your (customers) needs.”

Basic services on ShopZippy are completely free of charge – there are no service costs, markups or hidden fees. These Free services are for anyone from any part of India and one can simply avail it within few minutes. As of now, the company is self-funded but moving towards closing its deal for first round of funding. The aim is to invest these funds reach out and serve more people by giving customized and personalized services to E-com lovers and new E-com babies.

The Company is targeting major cities initially and then expand to small towns for premium exclusive services where lies demand for such services. Ranadheer further adds, “We want to become household name for alternative/practical e-commerce in India as a personal shopping assistant taking care of all the hassle of shopping to shipping to home and the company’s plans to expand its footprint Pan India within end of 2016 is already in the pipeline. With already existing E-commerce giants fighting for dominance over market, ShopZippy is aiming to penetrate deep with its unique peculiar approach to the segment. Simple, we are going to be real local unlike other giants of e-commerce which brings us the biggest advantage. We employ local guys who speak local language and understand local culture and segmentation; and that’s what makes the key difference to us than any other player in the market. No one actually offers personalized services like we do till now in Indian Market”

Supposedly, as the first entrant, ShopZippy has a huge edge over other players before someone actually swings in to compete on ground. Currently, talks are in place with various PE Firms for funding and expected to close the deal soon!
