Flipkart Grocery : Flipkart does a soft launch of its grocery category under Supermart in Bengaluru

BENGALURU: Online retailer Flipkart has re-entered the grocery category, launching it under Supermart on its mobile application to an initial set of customers in Bengaluru ­­ stepping up competition against US-based rival Amazon.

Flipkart, which has been talking about foraying into the FMCG segment for a while now, had launched flipkart grocery category and started deliveries in Bengaluru a few months ago, only for its employees.

Flipkart grocery marketplace requires a minimum order value of Rs 500 and provides free delivery for orders over Rs 1,000, according to information available on the mobile app.

“We have done a soft launch for grocery categories at Flipkart. Currently, it is available to select customers in Bengaluru. In line with our aim of transforming e-commerce in the country through technology, we want to make shopping for everyday essentials convenient for our customers, we intend to scale it up to all customers in Bengaluru and take it to other cities in future,” a Flipkart spokesperson said.

This is not Flipkart’s first foray into the grocery segment. The company had entered the grocery delivery service through its app Nearby in 2015, which used to deliver from local kirana stores. But the initiative was shut down several months later.

Grocery has been a major point of focus for Amazon India since last year due to its repeat purchases leading to higher customer acquisition. Paytm Mall, along with its main investor Alibaba, is also expanding in this space and is in talks to buy a significant stake in the largest grocery retailer BigBasket.

Amazon India offers food products through Amazon Pantry in some cities and same-day grocery delivery on Amazon Now app through a tie-up with retailers such as Big Bazaar and Hypercity in some cities.

Flipkart is building a dedicated supply chain for its grocery service and is providing options such as open-box delivery to verify products before acceptance and doorstep returns if the customer faces any issue with the product.

E-wallet : Tata CLiQ to launch e-wallet in 4-5 months

October 26, 2017 News

E-wallet

MUMBAI: Tata Group owned e-commerce marketplace Tata CliQ will launch an e-wallet exclusively for use in the marketplace in the next 4-5 months and eventually foray into selling services such as financial services.

It also plans to double the present 60 brands who have set up their omni-channel presence on the platform in one year. These are part of the plans to become the country’s largest omni-channel platform for which it will continue the investment mode while targeting to break even in 3-4 years, said Ashutosh Pandey, CEO at Tata UniStore, which owns and operates the website.

“We are currently in a growth phase and focus is on building brand, omni-channel relationships and traffic. A total of 800 plus brands across electronics, fashion, shoes, watches, kids and luxury sell through the marketplace. E-wallets too will be launched since they account for almost 20% of online payments. Our wallet will, however, be used only to enable customers to pay on our site and get refunds, though we could look at extending it to our omnichannel partners in future,” said Pandey. Tata CliQ will soon launch newer categories like jewellery, home furnishing and furniture. However, FMCG is not in the pipeline as yet, said Pandey. Tata CliQ went live in late May 2016.

Pandey said the just-completed festive season was significantly above expectations, with overall sales and traffic during the period growing by 25 times and 15 times respectively than the usual sales, which will also reflect in the financial performance for the current fiscal.

“Our focus isn’t on just selling low-value products like unbranded pen drives and power banks to increase volumes. Instead, our focus was on experience-led large ticket items like 50-inch plus televisions, AC, luxury products. It will remain so in future as well so that customers have a differentiated experience while buying on our site,” he said.

Ecommerce : India may face pressure to open up ecommerce

Ecommerce

NEW DELHI: India is expected to face pressure to begin talks to open up cross-border digital trade and also ease investment norms in a crucial two-day meeting of trade ministers of key countries in Marrakech beginning Monday. Trade ministers of many developed and developing countries, including India, are meeting on October 9-10 for a mini-ministerial of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) ahead of the ministerial conference in Argentina later in the year.

Commerce and industry minister Suresh Prabhu will represent India at the meet whose outcome would define the broad contours for the December meet. India is likely to reiterate its demand for a permanent solution for public stockholding (PSH) of food grains and the continued relevance of the Doha Development Agenda. The previous ministerial conference in Nairobi in 2015 had culminated in a divided opinion on the issue.

“Our concern is if Doha will be mentioned at all in Argentina. Reiteration of Doha is important for us,” said an official aware of Delhi’s position.

The Doha round seeks to put in place a global pact to reduce trade barriers. As part of the G-33, India floated a revised paper on PSH proposing the inclusion of procurement of foodstuff at minimum support price and their distribution at subsidised rates in the global rules for agriculture in order to safeguard the interests of low-income resource-poor farmers and ensure food security to the poor.

Delhi’s concerns are not unfounded as developed countries like the US, the EU and Japan and a few developing ones like Singapore are not only opposed to these but also want new subjects like e-commerce, investment facilitation, fisheries and MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises) to brought in the ambit of WTO’s multilateral discourse. While India is already discussing fisheries subsidies and an outcome is likely on the issue, the official said a lot is being pushed on investment facilitation, fisheries and MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises) to brought in the ambit of WTO’s multilateral discourse. While India is already discussing fisheries subsidies and an outcome is likely on the issue, the official said a lot is being pushed on investment facilitation and e-commerce in the garb of these benefiting MSMEs.

Online sales Festival season: Firms claim big numbers but questions over discount model continue to haunt

Festival season online sales

Festival season online sales: Firms claim big numbers but questions over discount model continue to haunt

Ashish Gupta, a 35-year-old from Delhi, is an avid online shopper. He does not recall when he last went to a physical store to shop. When the pre-festival sales on all e-commerce platforms were advertised, Gupta and his wife Arti Singh, were scouring them for a ‘good discount’ for a laptop. They found an Apple MacBook Air at a ‘real deal’ price of Rs 40,000 but Singh decided to wait thinking that the next sale online between Dussehra and Diwali might offer an even deeper discount. However, he found the price was Rs 59,000 once the sale was over. “I wished I had bought it earlier,” Singh says.

Has repeated online sales led to jaded buyers like Gupta and Singh who are regular online shoppers? Even casual observers of online commerce platforms are aware that discounts will be available on some product category or the other. It is never a ‘no-discount’ day on e-commerce platforms. Yet.

Festival sale discounts have garnered in consumers though, according to a report from RedSeer Consulting. E-commerce companies generated sales of an estimated Rs 9,000 crore (US $1.5 billion) in the festival sale offered last week on most platforms. “E-tailers generated their highest ever sale performance over the five festive days from September 20-24, 2017…For these festive sale days, RedSeer analysis shows that the e-tailing industry managed to generate Rs 9,000 crore/ US $1.5 billion of sales,” the report said.

Remember, no e-commerce platform is listed and hence their financials are not known. Retailers offer huge discounts on some product category online and e-commerce platform advertising and promotion spends are huge, but are there any margins from the products sold, asks Arvind Singhal, chairman and managing director of Technopak Advisors, a retail industry consulting firm. “My belief is that the amount of money spent on mega advertisements and the decibels they create will only show diminishing of returns even during the sale period. There are no authentic figures being put out by company,” he says explaining his stand.

Even though there are deep discounts that are advertised by e-commerce platforms, the fact is shoppers are not inclined to shop or splurge unless they want a product. How many times does one scour a e-commerce platform just for the sake of surfing and end up buying a product every time? Rarely. With demonetisation and goods and services tax (GST) having impacted spending patterns, say analysts, shoppers are cautious about splurging.

“When e-commerce platforms talk of huge sales during the festival period, I don’t doubt the sales figures,” says Paula Mariwala, partner, Seedfund, and Co-Founder, Stanford Angels. She believes that a buzz is created by e-commerce platforms and it might lead to an increasing number of shoppers buying products. But are the margins profitable or are the e-commerce companies bleeding to lure in shoppers, she asks, adding that online sales and discounts have become an ‘overkill’.

Online retail in India is only a small slice of retail in general and is expected to be at par with physical stores only in the next five years. The e-commerce market in India is expected to reach $220 billion in terms of gross merchandise value (GMV) and 530 million shoppers by 2025, led by faster speeds on reliable telecom networks, faster adoption of online services and better variety as well as convenience, according to an Indian Brand Equity Foundation survey.

Though e-commerce claims to attract customers, the bald fact is it does so only after luring them with discounts. There is no customer loyalty as such. If there was, where is the need to offer discounts every time, ask analysts.

Shoppers are inclined to shop during the festival time and tend to indulge themselves. It is this ‘weakness’ that e-commerce are playing upon, says Satish Meena, senior forecast analyst, Forrester Research. He says it is not only online platforms that announce and offer discounts but offline retail too give deep discounts because festive season accounts for 40 percent of their total sales. But, he too is skeptical about the figures put out by e-commerce companies that talk about their sales as he says even with the figures they tout they don’t reach their targets or are even on the path to profitability.

Customers are not looking for discounts every time they shop, say analysts. It is a strategy that retailers selling on e-commerce platforms adopt to create a market for themselves online. That, says Meena, is one of the reasons many e-commerce companies have had to merge or shut down. “Discounts cannot be the name of the game,” he said.

Zomato acquires logistics company Runnr for an undisclosed sum to boost food delivery business

Online restaurant guide and food ordering startup Zomato has acquired last-mile logistics company Runnr for an undisclosed sum to boost its food delivery business. Runnr will continue to function as an independent company offering logistical services to players other than Zomato in verticals such as pharma, grocery and e-commerce, Zomato said today.

“We just signed our long-rumoured acquisition of Runnr. Emotionally, the deal has been in place for a couple of months now, and both the teams have been working closely with each other quite some time now,” Zomato Founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal said in a blog post. With the combination of Zomato and Runnr, “we have everything in the stack of building a delightful food delivery service in India and UAE – end to end – listings, discovery, reviews, ordering, and now, logistics,” he added.

Runnr is already efficiently fulfilling 300 thousand orders a month, which is just a tad less than 10 per cent of it’s food ordering volumes, Goyal said. “Mohit (Kumar) will remain the Founder and CEO of Runnr and will continue developing his vision along with the rest of the founding team – Arpit, Mukunda, Gnanesh, Vatsal, and Aravind,” he added. At Zomato and Runnr, the delivery boy is going to get the status of most important employee and is going to be treated like one, Goyal added.

Paytm Mall to splurge Rs 1,000 cr, mostly to offer discounts this festival season, say reports

Paytm Mall

Paytm Mall : The competition in the online shopping space in India is likely to heat up this festival season with one more player planning to splurge in order to woo customers.

According to media reports, Alibaba-backed Paytm Mall is planning to spend about Rs 1,000 crore this festive season, giving a tight competition to domestic e-commerce stalwarts Amazon and Flipkart.

According to a report in The Times of India, the amount earmarked will be utilised for marketing, cashbacks and promotions. It says, however, most of it will be spent on discounts.

Another report in The Economic Times notes that the amount to be spent is three-fold over last year’s expense of about Rs 300 crore by Amazon India, Flipkart and Snapdeal . This year, although New Delhi-based troubled etailer Snapdeal is not in the fray, Paytm Mall will more than compensate for it. It is to be remembered that this will be the first festival season of Paytm Mall, which was spun off into a separate app in April this year.

According to the report, the company is planning to add about 5,000 branded stores to its platform ahead of festival season sales.

“This festive season, while online retailers will focus on spending money and taking away business from shops in the neighborhood, we will work with them and bring special offers for consumers to shop from their nearby markets by enabling these shopkeepers with mobile technology,” Amit Sinha, COO, Paytm Mall, has been quoted as saying in the report.

The company owned by Paytm Ecommerce recently refreshed its app featuring 1,000 brand stores and 15,000 brand- authorised retailers selling over 65 million products.

Its aim is to clock a gross merchandise value (GMV) run rate of $4 billion by the end of March next year on the back of strong growth in transactions on its platform.

The e-commerce firm expects strong demand in categories like electronics, appliances, FMCG and fashion to drive its growth.

The brands the company is looking at include Apple, Samsung, HP, Lenovo, JBL, Philips, Puma, Allen Solly, Lee, Pepe, Levi’s, Fossil and Vero Moda, among others, to drive growth.

However, analysts quoted in the ET report feel Paytm Mall may find it difficult to make a mark in fashion and retail even as consumer electronics and appliances may not be a major issue.

With all the players drawing up strategies to attract consumers, buyers can definitely expect a great festival season ahead with mouth-watering discounts.

Wal-mart to join hands with Google to enter the voice-shopping platform

August 25, 2017 News

0 Comments

SaveRupee.in

Wal-Mart Stores Inc is teaming up with Alphabet Inc’s Google to enter the nascent voice-shopping market, currently dominated by Amazon.com Inc, adding another front to Wal-Mart’s battle with the online megastore.

voice-shopping

Google, which makes the Android software used to run most of the world’s smartphones, will offer hundreds of thousands of Walmart items on its voice-controlled Google Assistant platform from late September, Walmart’s head of e-commerce, Marc Lore, wrote in a blog post on 23 August.

Lore, who joined the world’s largest retailer after it bought his e-commerce company Jet.com, said Wal-Mart would offer a wider selection than any retailer on the platform.

Amazon, whose voice-controlled aide Alexa allows users to shop from the retailer, has the lion’s share of the US voice-controlled device industry, with its Echo devices accounting for 72.2 percent of the market in 2016, far ahead of the Google Home gadget’s 22 percent, according to research firm eMarketer.

Amazon has also dominated Wal-Mart and other brick-and-mortar retailers in online sales.

Wal-Mart has begun pushing back aggressively, however, offering discounts to customers who buy online and pick up in-store, and free two-day shipping for purchases of $35 or more. The latter move even forced Amazon, which rarely imitates the competition, to lower its threshold for free shipping.

Lore said in the blog post that Wal-Mart was also integrating its quick reordering tool into Google’s same-day delivery service and voice-shopping.

“One of the primary-use cases for voice shopping will be the ability to build a basket of previously purchased everyday essentials,” he said in an interview.

He added that Wal-Mart has bigger plans for voice shopping next year that will involve capitalising on its 4,700 US stores to “create customer experiences that don’t currently exist within voice shopping anywhere else.”

Customers might be able to use voice shopping to pick up a discounted order in-store or buy fresh groceries across the country, he said.

But while both Amazon and Google’s voice-controlled speakers are gaining in popularity, people still mainly use them for such basic tasks as placing phone calls or playing music.

To boost voice purchases, Amazon has started offering Alexa-only shopping deals.

“We’re still in early days, but shopping isn’t yet one of the big uses of the devices,” Victoria Petrock, principal analyst at research firm eMarketer, said on Tuesday.

“Obstacles to people using the devices to shop are cost and privacy. A little more than six in 10 people are concerned that these virtual assistants are spying on them.”
