-- ShopClues.com, India's first and largest managed marketplace reported a 2.5X increase in traffic and more than 3.5x increase in sales during its 12.12.12 initiative. ShopClues had earlier launched first time in India online Black Friday in the end of November and had seen a 2.0x increase in sale during that promotion as well. This was the first initiative by any company to bring global shopping trends to India – Black Friday had an extensive selection of products from over 3000 merchants and was very well received by consumers.
It is noteworthy, that the whole 12.12.12 initiative was executed by ShopClues internally- it was not a participant in the GOSF planned by Google. Since its launch on 26th January, ShopClues.com has emerged as a dark horse in the ecommerce industry, and has gained huge popularity amongst consumers with its “Great Selection, Low Prices and Fast Shipping” mantra. It is currently ranked 131 most popular visited sites in India (the list including internet stalwarts like Google, Facebook, etc.) by Alexa and is rising in popularity on a daily basis.
Mr. Sandeep Aggarwal, founder & CEO shopclues.com says “It was great to see so welcoming response from online shoppers for both Black Friday and Cyber Monday events we hosted on ShopClues.com
. At ShopClues customers' online shopping experience comes first and ShopClues has been bringing many nice aspects of global online shopping experience to India. For example, we were the first one to launch a concept of Sunday Flea Market online in India and that has gone extremely well for us...”
ShopClues was the first amongst all ecommerce sites to launch as a Marketplace-
since then the ecommerce industry has seen a migration towards the business model, but none has been able to match ShopClue’s success.
