challenges faced by e-entrepreneurs like you?
when we started the biggest challenge was to explain the customers the meaning
of refurbished and unboxed. They
thought all the products were faulty repaired with duplicate spares etc. We
made sure we stood by each commitment and made sure that the customer got what
we promised. It was rigorous after sales service especially in retail when the
customer in his head thinks that there is a problem with the phone that’s what
we are selling it at a cheaper price but actually our fault ratio is below
brand new products. With time came trust and with trust came a customer base
through word of mouth and now here we are.
business is not an easy task. It takes a lot of planning, hard work and
efforts. Currently we have a team of
250 people and close to 15 agencies to whom we outsource our work. In India

sticking to one seller only.

partners and customers make it a stressful business model
