As e-commerce industry and online shopping are witnessing growth in terms of a number of users, FirstHandle, a mobile app that aims at empowering offline sellers and businesses has extended its support to Mumbai.
Nowadays, there are numerous online deal websites, apps and e-commerce portals available in the market, which offer its customers best deals and discounts across various products and categories.
“There are no online services available in the market, which help consumers shopping offline. Keeping this in mind, we initially launched FirstHandle in New Delhi-NCR in August this year,” said Gaurav Sinha, Co-founder and CEO at FirstHandle.
FirstHandle is aimed at empowering offline sellers to target customers based on their physical locations. The app itself filters out things such as gender and age of the audiences as well as other promotional preferences set by the sellers.
FirstHandle is working with over 5000 sellers and 60,000 consumers in Delhi-NCR so far. However, the company is aiming to reach over 25,000 sellers and one million consumers by the end of Q1 2016.
By launching its operation in the city of Mumbai, FirstHandle has already managed to attract over 2000 sellers and 5000 consumers across the financial capital of India.
“Our plan is to expand to top cities in India with an aim to facilitate over $1 billion transactions in next couple of years with pan India presence,” said Sinha.
