Snapdeal is ranked amongst the top Indian e-commerce companies and has a wide customer reach with the number of buyers in crores and sellers in lakhs.

Benefits of Snapdeal

  • Open for Business 24×7
    The brick and mortar store does not work for 24×7. It is practically not possible since it needs human resources to run the business. But, Snapdeal doesn't shut shop which implies that you can browse through the portal any time for hours at your convenience.
  • Offers and Deals
    Now you don't need to bargain with the shopkeeper as Snapdeal offers you thousands of excellent deals and products at a very low cost that the brick and mortar store never offers.
    Every day thousands of deals renew with additional cashback that a physical store never gives. Additional offers are extended to regular and loyal customers which often leads to huge discounts.
  • Variety of products
    Snapdeal has an extensive reach that offers thousands of products from different brands. This provides customers with numerous options to choose and compare. Since it is a virtual store with space constraints, you can find new products every day, unlike a regular physical store.
  • Time-saving
    Unlike a virtual portal where all products are assembled under one umbrella, products are scattered in physical stores. It becomes time-consuming to trot between different stores to collect the products. At Snapdeal, all the things related to lifestyle and fashion are available at only one place which means no rushing. You can just scroll through the Snapdeal portal to look for your products. To make it quick, you can even set some parameters to filter your search and make it quick.
  • Transaction Friendly
    Fund transfer is a major problem with physical stores. Customers often face difficulty to pay for their products as sometimes the seller doesn't have the change, or sometimes he doesn't have the facility to accept payment via cards. This makes the purchase difficult for the buyer. Snapdeal offers different ways for transactions like net banking, card payment, cash on delivery, UPI payment, etc. which makes a smooth transaction.
  • No refund and change problem
    Snapdeal has a very clear and customer-friendly refund and returns policy unlike the physical stores. Snapdeal offers a 15-day change and refund policy. Refund is a rarely existing policy amongst the shopkeepers these days. In most cases, they don't give a refund but provides a credit note of the same amount. The stores also have various terms and conditions regarding the exchange of the products.
  • Fastest Delivery
    Snapdeal offers you the fastest delivery as it delivers the products in very less time. Snapdeal has its reach in almost all parts of the country even at places where other e-commerce doesn’t deliver, It tries to deliver damaged free products.
  • Order status
    You can track the status of the product that you ordered on Snapdeal. Like other e-commerce portals, Snapdeal also allows you to track your shipment.

For example, if you want to go for some work, you can check order status and can schedule the delivery accordingly.
  • Easy cancellation
    If you do not like the product that you have ordered or want to order any other product instead of the previous one, then you can cancel it. It is very easy with Snapdeal cancellation policy, but a brick and mortar stores do not give you cancellation policy.
