Quikr is one of the online classified site in INDIA. Like I had mentioned in one of my previous blog posts, Quikr is a portal where you can find many ads of various ranges of used and unused products. The ads are classified into various categories like Car and Bikes, Mobile and Tablets, Electronics and Appliances, Real Estate, Jobs, Home, and Lifestyle, Education and Learning, Pets and Pet care, Services, Community and Events, Matrimonial and Entertainment. To sell any of the products, you just need to post an ad on this site with the proper details regarding the product and the price at which you desire to sell your product. The posting of an ad is absolutely free of any cost.
Now Quikr has initiated a new program called Quikr NXT where buyers and sellers can immediately connect with each other through chat across Quikr’s mobile app, mobile site and even its desktop site. This feature will transform India’s online classifieds market as it enables users to communicate with each other at their convenience and request more details about the product or service, without requiring a single phone call. Let me tell you a bit more about this program. There is a new feature that has been added; that is an instant chat between buyer and sellers. Due to this option of instant messaging, the time taken in completing the transaction would be less. Also, it gives the user privacy by listing their contact details as private on the site.
With Quikr NXT feature, it will enable the user to chat from anywhere may it be from mobile or desktop at their convenience without sharing their contact details. Earlier this option was not available due to which a few people who dint wanted to share their number in large on an online site, were not comfortable selling their products online. When you post a free ad, there would be an option of privacy which will allow you to hide your contact details and therefore the first way of communication would be Quikr chat. Later it depends on you, when you are comfortable in revealing your number to the buyer of the product. Also, you can share as many photos of the items being sold online and this will enable the buyer to have a proper look at the product instantly. Also, due to this new feature, the seller or buyer doesn’t need to remember the details of the product in their mind as they can find their chat in the Chat History. For instance, if you are planning to buy a car, you may just click on the option “Car and Bikes” and you would get a list of cars on sale. Choose the cars that fits your budget and other requirement, chat with the owner of the selected cars and then decide which one would you go for. You can even call the owner directly and talk to them. If you want to replace your car, just post a free ad of your car and provide the exact details of your car. Once sold, you can accordingly plan to buy a new car from the same site. Due to the new privacy setting, your number won’t be visible unless you want to share! Isn’t it great and a hassle free procedure?
The Quikr NXT program is the first such initiative introduced to the online site in INDIA. Such feature makes our buying and selling experience much simpler as;
1) It protects our contact details from getting displayed on the large scale by Private mode option.
2) Instant Messaging would make the transactions easier and less time consuming.
3) We don’t need to remember the details of the products, as the same would be stored in our Chat History option.
4) It helps us from wasting our time with the bogus caller.
5)The only point of contact becomes your Quikr ID, and you can use Quikr Nxt to chat with people using the app on your phone, or on the website.
