Snapdeal is leaving no stone unturned to gain foothold in smaller cities. After houses and bikes, the company has now launched ‘The Agri Store’. It is a comprehensive online store offering access to farming and agriculture products for farmers across India.
The Store offers hundreds of products across categories like irrigation tools, farming tools and seeds. The company also plans to add more products and categories in the coming weeks from merchants across the country. A Hindi version of the store will also be launched soon to aid the farmers in making an informed decision.
Kunal Bahl, CEO and Co-founder, Snapdeal.com, said, “Agriculture is a primary sector in India with 70% of the population engaged in this sector. With The Agri Store, we want to extend our mission of creating life changing experiences for buyers and sellers to farmers of our country. Now, farmers will be able to access products critical to their daily needs easily at the click of a button, this bringing forth the inclusive power of digital marketplaces in the realm of agriculture as well.”
Besides Snapdeal, eBay also sells agricultural goods online. However, the former offers comprehensive catalogue, including fertilizers, seeds among others.
