Shopping has been around for centuries. And it isn’t restricted to women as might have been suggested popularly. In fact, in the beginning of time, people would barter as a means of transacting. It’s significant, therefore, when online wallets are now gaining prominence. But before we get to wallets, in a later blog post, it’s interesting to look at online shopping behaviour and trends.
As is the case with the normal user journey at a store, online shopping, too, has an interesting side to it. Bargaining is at the core of customers in the sub region. What’s unique is that while customers prefer to walk the loyalty route with a trader or local business, bargaining for the best price is a self-claimed right. The concept of a fixed price then, seems like the deprivation of an essential right to many.
It isn’t surprising then that most visitors spend most part of their visit to the local mall window gazing. The probability of bargaining prices falls drastically in a mall as compared to the local kirana store.
Online shopping is no different. Whether you buy from Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra, Indiatimes Shopping, pepperfry, fabfurnish, Zivame, babyoye, paytm or any of the other popular ecommerce sites, we all have the obsession to save every penny. Every paisa, to be particular. How does one compare the best deal online then? Let’s say we want to compare the best deal across 10 ecommerce sites. When was the last time you visited a page of flipkart, made your purchase and exited the site? Seldom, right?
That’s the key. On an average, a user visits around 4-6 pages while visiting an ecommerce site. Let’s stick to 5 for convenience of calculation. That makes it 50 tabs open on your browser. Unless you’re a machine that would be very convenient to you. Only, you aren’t!
That’s where CValue brings about the much needed change. Simply visit cvalue.in from your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device. If you use Chrome or Firefox, you can install the plugin as well. CValue scans through over 4 million records (as of writing this) to get you the best price from across 15 ecommerce sites so you’d never feel you missed out on the best deal, ever.
