Paytm’s e-commerce arm has announced the launch of its new Paytm Mall app on Android on February 27. The offering is similar to Tmall of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, which owns a majority stake in Paytm.
Paytm Mall will offer a unique combination of the Mall and Bazaar concepts to Indian consumers. Only trusted sellers passing strict quality guidelines and qualification criteria will be allowed on the ‘Mall’. All products listed on the mall will also go through Paytm certified warehouse and shipping channels ensuring guaranteed consumer trust.
The Bazaar, the hugely popular unstructured shopping channel on Paytm will also be featured on a new app. It will aim at providing consumers the widest domestic and international assortment.
With over 17 fulfillment centers across India, Paytm Mall is geared towards offering consumers the most trusted and efficient online shopping experience. The platform would also offer sellers the widest reach through its vast network of over 40 courier partners.
The Paytm Mall is currently available on Android and Web. It lists over 68 million products sold by 1.4 lakh sellers spread over 1000 cities and towns across the country. The iOS app is expected soon.
