If you log in to Flipkart today, and find motorcycles being sold for Rs. 3000, don’t be shocked.
The e-commerce giant Flipkart has begun selling motorcycles on its website, after tying up with motorcycle distributors. As of now, the website shows Bajaj motorcycles and Maruti Suzuki cars.
The online retail space in India has been witnessing stiff competition in the last few years. Last year, it was reported that Snapdeal had sold a flat worth 1 crore through its website. While ecommerce was so far looked at as a convenient way to order electronics or books, the trend is clearly moving towards larger transactions, as companies make larger products and services available on their sites.
Flipkart’s decision to sell motorcycles comes close on the heels of Snapdeal, which also began selling automotives on its website, under the banner Snapdeal Motors. However, here’s a disclaimer. The 3,000 amount you find under that Ninja motorcycle, is only the ‘Booking Price’.
Sorry about the KLPD! 😀
