During diwali festival, blogadda announced an awesome activity in association with Quikr. Do you all want to know what that is??? A 100 shortlisted bloggers had an opportunity to shop in Quikr.com #ShopQuick for 5000 Rs. Hurrah! I am one among them :)... I love shopping especially online shopping and its came on right (festival) time.
I heard about the website Quikr through my friends & relatives and seen some Ads in television too, but I haven't tried that before. It is my first time shopping experience with quikr. Before I start my hunting, I asked about the reviews of Quikr in my surroundings. All of them gave me positive replies. Many of my friends used to sell their products and they all got decent amount for that. Ok, first let me tell you about quikr.com.
What is Quikr.com?
Quikr is one of the India’s largest online and mobile classifieds portals based in Mumbai, India. It was launched on 12 July 2008 and is currently present in 900 cities across India. Quikr provides the local community with a platform to help them buy, sell, rent and find something and address needs across many categories. These categories numbering over 12 and sub-categories over 140 range from Mobiles, real estate, cars, services, jobs, entertainment, furniture, electronics etc (Source: Wikipedia)
When blogadda announced this activity, I decided to buy some useful things for my home. I listed out what things we need for our house now?? A couple of years ago we bought a 46 inch LCD TV for our big living room, but we don't have a proper TV stand for that (pic attached above). Hence I decided to buy a stylish wooden TV stand which should perfectly fit the TV inch. I started my hunting in Quikr website. In the homepage, it showed search box, categories and a drop down menu for to select our city. I chose my place Mayiladuthurai.
Then I clicked on the category menu. There it has an array of different categories. Since I was looking for TV stand, I clicked on Home & Lifestyle tab. It redirected to the next page.
In Home & lifestyle category, it has furniture, clothing, decorative items, household products etc., In order to filter the unwanted options, I chose all furniture option. It showed only furniture items. For further filtering, it has more options in left side bar like Price, furniture type, used/new, etc.,
In my place, the furniture availability was less than 10 numbers. Luckily a TV stand was there as how I expected :). I clicked on the product, and it redirected to the product details page.
In the product details page, it showed product price, condition, some snaps of the product and product description. I really liked the product outlook. Though they mentioned it's used, it looked like new one. In the right side bar, it showed the owner's mobile number. I made a cal to the owner and said that I saw your Ad in Quikr.com and I am interested to buy the TV stand. He replied that sure I will sell it to u, but I am on the way to Chennai now and I will be back on couple of days. Like he said, he contacted me again after two days. Within few minutes, we finalized the deal. I expected the TV stand price might be exactly 5000 Rs, but it cost only 3999/- . I have 1001 Rs more to purchase some other products.
Then again I started searching the products for balance 1001 Rs, but unfortunately I don't like any of the products. So I decided to change the city selection. I changed it to Karaikal, which is my dad's native. Here I clicked on electronics category. To filter other options, I chose computer peripheral, I set the price limit to 1000, and the products are not very impressive. I increased it to 1100 Rs. Ahhh! I found a new san disk 32 GB pen drive. Without any second thought, I clicked the product. In the product details, the owner mentioned its new one and it has 5 years warranty... what else I need ;)... I replied to that Ad and owner contacted me on the same day. Within few seconds we finalized the deal. My daddy is going to get it tomorrow from the person.
Quikr is the best online portal for buying and selling products. It is quick and user friendly website too. Overall, I am very glad about the both product deals. It has several different options to get your right deals. I love the filtering options; it really made my job so simple and eases. I am sure; I will shop again in Quikr. My first time shopping experience with Quikr is so pleasant and smooth. I am one of the happy customers :) Thank you so much Quikr and BlogAdda for this wonderful opportunity.
