ReGlobe, the online re-commerce startup which helps consumers sell their old electro stuff via its platform, has today grabbed an exclusive buyback partnership agreement from major Indian e-commerce brands, including the likes of Amazon India, Snapdeal, Infibeam, and eBay.
In a bid to expand its reach and user base, ReGlobe has recently inked the Amazon exclusive buy-back partnership, while SnapDeal was inked more than two years ago. eBay and Infibeam exclusive buy-back partnerships are both six months old. ReGlobe provides buy-back services to customers on these websites, across 5500 pin codes in India.
Mandeep Manocha, the CEO & Co-Founder, tells us,
We are excited to be partnering with the leaders in e-commerce in India and be their exclusive buy-back partner for laptops, tablets and mobiles – product categories that are among the highest selling on these website. Plans are afoot to include products such as gaming consoles, TV’s and other white goods into the buy-back offers in the future
Consumers can leverage the partnership by logging on to the relevant mobile, tablet and/or the laptop buyback page. And while a feature to sell old electronic gadgets on Amazon/Snapdeal is an all-good deal, there’s a catch to it.
In the case of Amazon and SnapDeal, users need to purchase new products to be able sell their old goods. simply put, you can not just log into Amazon or Snapdeal to sell your old gadgets, you’re required to have a desire to buy something new.
In the case of Infibeam though, users can sell any gadget on its website for cash, irrespective of where it was purchased. Whereas on eBay, while users can sell any gadget irrespective of where it was purchased, users receive credits in their account equivalent to the cash amount of the buy-back. After a quick online valuation of the product, ReGlobe will instantly pick up the product from the consumers’ doorstep, with payment in cash being made within 48 hours at the doorstep.
