Snapdeal, one of India’s leading online marketplaces, has recently launched Snapdeal Gold, a service which will offer customers free shipping, free upgrade to next-day-delivery and extended purchase protection. With this recent inclusion, the company is certainly aiming to lock horns with its arch rivals Flipkart’s Assured and Amazon’s Prime Services.
The official statement of the company states that Snapdeal Gold is a free service upgrade that is available anytime a user pays for the purchase through Net Banking, Credit/Debit card, EMI or wallet at the time of booking the order.
Under Flipkart Assured, goods undergo a six level quality check and the company aims to offer large part deliveries to be done within two to four days. Amazon Prime offers free delivery of large number of goods on same day or the next day for Indian consumers.
Speaking about the move, Rohit Bansal, Co-Founder, Snapdeal stated that company’s team met over 10,000 customers across the country to identify the key services they desire from e-commerce companies. Snapdeal Gold has been designed to fulfill those needs. The most important thing is that there is no catch and no membership fee - anytime you use your credit/debit card, netbanking, EMI or wallet for payment, we automatically upgrade your order to Snapdeal Gold.
