Coutloot to help offline retailers sell online during lockdowns
Mar 26, 2020
Mumbai-based e-commerce start-up CoutLoot is offering its services to offline retailers to help them sell products online, amid the various lockdowns India due to the novel coronavirus.
Coutloot has introduced a ‘free-sell’ model through which it will offer its technology and AI to automate product cataloguing and listing to help offline sellers sell online.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi ordered a 21-day countrywide lockdown from midnight on Tuesday, an announcement that sparked widespread panic buying.
Although the federal government advised that online deliveries of essential goods be exempt, different messages from the country’s regional government has created confusion.
Many e-commerce companies have requested the government to allow them to deliver essential goods including majors like Amazon, Flipkart, Bisbasket, Grofers, and others.
Commenting on the initiative, Jasmeet Thind, co-founder of Coutloot, in a statement said: “This is a crucial time for the nation and we should give our best to support each other. At CoutLoot, we have added more staff to our operations and customer care team, increasing the total team size to over 70 people who are now managing remote coordination between sellers and buyers.”
“We are, furthermore, determined to leverage the best of cutting-edge technology in helping offline sellers add a consistent revenue stream by selling online,” Thind added.
