Shopify’s Partnership With Getit In India Goes Live

Shopify’s SME offering in India, in partnership with Getitbazar, has apparently gone live. The company is offering SME’s an independent ecommerce enabled website and domain name for Rs 25,000 per year (plus taxes), with the payment gateway powered by Getit’s “order processing and payment collection mechanism”, starting at a nominal fee starting from Rs 100 (plus taxes). This essentially allows sellers on Getit to set up their own websites. The Getit-Shopify partnership was announced in July, around a month after we had reported Shopify’s India entry.

Getitbazaar is an online marketplace for SME’s to list and sell their goods, and also offers sellers free listings on the website. It claims to have over 4500 SME stores live on its platform, so the low hanging fruit for Shopify is that base of SME’s.

The costing works out to around Rs 2000 per month, which is somewhere between Shopify India’s basic and professional packages. However, we couldn’t quite locate the details of the store offering on Getitbazaar.com, and all we have, is what we got in their press release. On their website, Getitbazaar only has information for sellers to list their offerings in the marketplace.

Getting SME’s to set up online stores is an initiative that multiple companies have initiated in the past – Google has been principal among them, offering free .in domains in a partnership with Hostgator, which Getit has also partnered with, as a part of its “India Get Your Business Online” initiative.

There are now several do-it-yourself platforms for getting SME’s to set up ecommerce stores in India, including 500 Startups backed KartRocketInfibeam‘s BuildaBazaarPowerStoresMartJack39shops.comambab.combigcommerce.com and zepo.in. There’s also Sellmojo.com, which allows one to create stores on Facebook.com.
