Although Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal covers most of the online selling in India, IRCTC is top e-commerce site of Asia-Pacific region.
IRCTC have 21 million user and have set a record of selling over of 580,000 tickets on their gateway in one day only. This cannot be compared with other sites. What really helps this e-commerce giant to set such records is its backbone, one of the the world’s largest railway network.
A year ago they fixing up with Yebhi to dispatch a co-marked gateway, yet it appears things did not go extremely well and the association equaled the initial investment before they finished first year of their presence.
As of late, IRCTC skimmed another delicate for co-marked commercial center with standards that will qualify just a hand sized scoop of ecommerce destinations. The 28 new standards for specialized capability included having in excess of 100,000 Skus at the time of the dispatch, in excess of 500 venders required on the stage and have devoted help group and so forth.
From what we can evaluate specialized capability will exclude most e-commerce locales separated from the enormous three – Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal.
Presently, as indicated by a report that showed up in ET, IRCTC is now in converses with Amazon and Flipkart to power in excess of 21 million guests on their site. As indicated by Sandip Dutta, advertising chief at IRCTC, “Tie-ups with entryways like Flipkart, Amazon and so forth are simultaneously under which these entries might want to offer their stock through IRCTC’s entry, it being one of the biggest e-trade destinations in the whole Asia-Pacific area”
While it was a given that one of the main 3 entries will band together with IRCTC this time around, the fascinating thing to see is the way they will run about with the mix. A straightforward joining like what Flipkart did with Yahoo may not be what IRCTC may be taking a gander at.
From what we comprehend, IRCTC would need a far deeper mix, that will utilize their passage and installment wallet as opposed to of the ecommerce site they tie-up with.
We will need to lie low whether it will IRCTC-Flipkart, IRCTC-Amazon or perhaps IRCTC-Snapdeal.
