The annual digital buying trends report by Snapdeal highlights consumer preferences and habits recorded on its platform for the year 2016. It says that Delhi-NCR topped the charts as the most online shopping-savvy metro city in India, followed by Bangalore and Mumbai. Pune emerged as a leader amongst all tier I city shoppers.
Nearly 60 per cent of the sales came from tier II cities and beyond. Metros and tier I cities accounted for 40 per cent of the sales during the year. The report also states that close to 82 per cent of the traffic on the e-commerce portal came from Snapdeal’s mobile application and m-site.
“2016 was an important growth year for the Indian online shopper - be it in terms of new customer segments adopting online commerce or increased acceptance of digital transaction methods. The delivery of functional benefits like speed, convenience and value also resulted in massive growth from non-metros cities in India,” said Vishal Chadha, senior vice president (business), Snapdeal.
“We are rapidly expanding our assortment in line with the needs and expectations of our existing users and also to cater to the next 100 million online shoppers from across India,” added Chadha.
The e-commerce platform also recorded a surge in growth across new categories, states the report. (KD)
