Kapil Bansal, Senior VP of Consumer Products & Retail of TÜV SÜD’s Product Service Division, said, “Shoppers have been exponentially shifting to the online space owing to the convenience the medium offers. Being location agnostic, marketplaces today, serve as a meeting place for consumers and merchants. While websites offer a wide range of products, consumers run the risk of not being able to gauge the quality of products online. To bridge this gap, it is critical for sellers to ensure that their products meet quality standards consistently and are safe for use. TÜV SÜD’s services can help merchants deliver safe products and mitigate risk of product failure.”
India’s online marketplaces have flourished in the past couple of years. Indian shoppers are likely to spend almost 85% more on global online marketplaces in 2017 across categories, as per a report jointly published by digital payments platform PayPal and market research firm Ipsos. The report suggests that India’s online spend is likely to touch Rs 875,600 crore by 2018.
