Just last week, we heard about Snapdeal’s soon-to-be-launched improved Content Sheet to facilitate faster listings for sellers. In the same spirit of making the online selling experience easier, Snapdeal has launched a unique ‘Scan and Sell’ feature on its mobile app for sellers.
What is Scan & Sell?
Using Scan & Sell, sellers will be able to list products on the platform in just 5 minutes or less:
- Scan barcode of products
- Input price and other details
Commenting on this significant development, Ankit Khanna, Senior Vice President, Products Management, Snapdeal.com, said, “Technology development and innovation is at the heart of Snapdeal growth story. Introduction of ‘scan and sell’ significantly simplifies the process for sellers to list their products on the platform, thereby enabling them to maximize the impact of reach and scale offered by Snapdeal. We believe that mobile is a key contributor to the growth of ecommerce and we have been continuously working on enhancing the seller and buyer experience on the mobile. The addition of this hassle-free mobile products listing feature for a best-in-class seller experience is keeping in line with our philosophy of creating life changing experiences for our sellers.”
Benefits of Scan & Sell
- Automated system, which helps to minimize errors that may occur when products are manually listed.
- Option to scan and list from anywhere, anytime.
Although it is available only for select branded fashion and electronics products, Snapdeal plans to extend the feature to cover more products eventually.
Can Scan & Sell facilitate faster listings?
A first from an Indian ecommerce player, Scan and Sell simplifies the otherwise existing non-automated process of listing products. Snapdeal has tied up with GS1, leading company involved in the design and implementation of global standards, to maintain the large volumes of barcode data.
Scan and list from anywhere anytime in less than five minutes certainly sounds like listings would be faster. Compared to the otherwise mundane task of making an excel sheet/catalogue in the marketplace format with the right details in the right columns, this certainly sounds easier. Don’t you think?
