India Wholesale E-Fair has just come to an end, and we are glad that it is a big success. To celebrate out first anniversary on 7th March, 2017, we launched a 3-day live trade event, where wholesalers and retailers can chat with each other directly and close deals right away, which happened for the first time in India.
Much to our expectation, the event received massive response and recorded vital growth in participation from wholesalers and retailers from across the country. Following the pre-launch campaign for India Wholesale E-fair, more than 300 wholesalers and manufacturers registered for the event.
Traffic increased by 70% during India Wholesale E-Fair. Hundreds of retailers visited the live trade event and interacted with the top sellers through live chat. Due to the live chat facility, there were many instant deal closures. While the number of orders has increased by 125% in last 3 days, the GMV has grown by 600% during the event.
We have noted growth in number of users from all parts of the country. There has been a remarkable growth in users from Hyderabad, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Patna and other cities. A large number of wholesalers and retailers from small cities and towns like Sonepat, Rohtak, and Pulwama also participated in the E-Fair.
Sudarshan Kumar from Patna placed the maximum number of orders during the India Wholesale E-Fair. Surat based fashion accessories wholesaler, Om Star Fashion has been recorded as the seller of highest order value. Om Star Fashion said, “It’s good and we are really very happy with Wydr. Our business has increased in last 2 days. We expect more business from the next India Wholesale E-Fair.”
Mohd. Mir Gulzar, a retailer from Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir, was at the E-Fair and made a purchase. He said, “I liked the concept of an online trade event only for wholesale deals. The best part was that I could chat with the seller directly. Everything was so smooth and fast.”
Rohtak based mobile and car accessory wholesaler Head and Tail is a regular user of our Wydr App. “When I heard about the Wholesale E-fair, I expected more buyers to contact me. I was online on chat during the event, and many retailers contacted me. I closed some transactions instantly, which is amazing,” they shared.
Many buyers and sellers shared their experiences through text and video messages, sharing how Wydr has made wholesale trading easier for them.
