Mr. Mallikarjun, an Indian entrepreneur runs a very unique B2C website. His website ekprice.com has a very fantastic concept to it, every service and thing sold on this site is at a uniform price.
The motto of this site is “Put your Rs 500 to the best use.”
How was the idea ignited?
According to Mr. Mallikarjun, the idea of offsetting this website came up when he and his friend we in the middle of a discussion as to how they can ease the price variations and provide everything for the same price.
Since they observed that there is a fluctuation in price for the very same things at different places and the price sometimes seemed to be unfair.
Plus there was also a lack of platform which can satiate the need of customers to get products and services at a fair price as well as let the vendors get a fair margin for their products or services. It was like serving two purposes through a common platform.
Motive Behind The Website
Ekprice.com was started with the sole intention of creating a platform to beat the price fluctuations and give customers both products & services for the same price all round the year.
There is a chance that people may get products within their budget but it may not be the case in terms of various services hence the website is a platform to find even services within your budget.
The platform provides a plethora of various services including freelance services like banner and logo designing, web theme creation, bug fixing etc, legal services like PAN card registration, GST service etc. all at the same price
Features That he Prominently Wanted in his eCommerce marketplace
When Mr. Mallikarjun came to us with his idea there were some specific features that he prominently wanted to be present in his website. They were
- Bulk upload feature and
- Easy return feature
Challenges faced by him
