Shopclues LogoShopClues launches Cash Before Delivery with Suvidhaa

E-commerce website ShopClues has tied-up with Suvidhaa for offline cash collection service called Cash Before Delivery (CBD), reports The Economic Times. Shoppers on ShopClues can now go to any of the 65,000 Suvidhaa outlet in 2,500 cities and towns to make payments. It is not clear why customers would make payments at such outlets when they could opt for Cash on Delivery. The company has not mentioned if it plans to phase out CoD in favour of this CBD. While, CBD might be helpful for sellers, it doesn’t look interesting enough for consumers. Do note that Amazon had launched a similar service recently through which customers could collect their shipments from Kirana stores.

Motorola has launched their new budget Android phone MotoE exclusively on Flipkart. The device costs Rs 6,999 and runs on the latest version of Android. Its 4.5-inch screen is powered by a 1.2 Ghz dual-core chip with 1GB RAM and 4GB internal memory (expandable upto 32 GB). The device has a 1,980 mAh battery and also supports dual-SIMs. Camera can only capture images ay 5 mega-pixels much like Moto G.

Marcus Frost, Senior Marketing Director for Motorola Mobility EMEA & APAC told The Hindu that it has no plans to launch offline. “The Flipkart model is working well for us. It offers us opportunity to be different… reinvent mobile category,” he said.

The device will compete against those being offered by Indian manufacturers such as Micromax, Karbonn and Lava.  We hope that Motorola now scales up its support system in the country.
