DesiDime Online Shopping Community Has Announced Its Collaboration with Pepper Network
DesiDime, India’s leading online shopping community, announced its collaboration with Pepper.com, an international social commerce network.
Mehul Jobanputra, co-founder of DesiDime, said: “With India being the largest country in terms of new Internet user additions along with the growth of mobile usage and spending in India, we believe that this is the perfect time to join the Pepper.com network and pass on the benefits of this collaboration to our growing number of members. For our users, this amalgamation means new tools rolling out at a much faster rate and at a global level enhancing their shopping experience and helping them to make more informed choices when buying. And for us we can gain global insights from other platforms in the network to ensure our users have the optimum social shopping experience.”
Paul Nikkel, co-founder of Pepper.com, said: “By bringing together the leading social commerce sites from around the world, we’re making deal-sharing a global conversation, giving consumers a voice to share the best deals, tips, and freebies to help others make the best decisions on their spending. Thanks to the expertise of our partners, such as DesiDime, who have expert knowledge in mobile business and the Asian market, we’re giving our members access to the best deals in the quickest and easiest ways possible via desktop and mobile.”
DesiDime has joined the established social commerce sites already on the Pepper.com network including market leaders and big traffic generators in e-commerce such as HotUKDeals in the UK, mydealz in Germany, Dealabs in France and PromoDescuentos in Mexico, along with ambitious start-ups and smart, localised shopping communities in countries such as the Netherlands (Pepper NL), Poland (Pepper PL), Austria (Preisjaeger), Korea (Pepper Korea) and the U.S (BuenosDeals).
This comes at a time when India continues to see an increase in Internet and mobile usage with mobile accounting for 41% of total e-commerce sales in India last year, topping a list of countries including UK, USA, France, Germany and China.
Partners of Pepper.com are now active in ten countries on four continents with a combined total of close to 500,000,000 page views and over 1.000.000 user comments and submitted deals every month.
Pepper.com harmonizes the interests of both consumers and merchants. Users across the globe can share their insights and tips, vote on and discuss the best deals without being subjected to interruptive marketing and, at the same time, Pepper.com opens its huge and engaged audience up to merchants who benefit from the group’s knowledge in social commerce and the power of conversation to be able to run national and international social commerce campaigns to boost sales.
DesiDime is a completely free and user driven online shopping community. It provides a platform for users to collaborate and share information in order to make the best shopping decisions. DesiDime’s objective is to create a community which is created by the users, for the users, to share the best deals available on the net from daily deals, special promotions, freebies, coupons as well as online and in-store deals across India.
The founders of the Pepper network are dotted across the globe, with hubs in Berlin, Lyon, London, Guadalajara and Mumbai. Through international conversation and partnerships, Pepper and their partners are now the leading deal-communities in their home markets where members find, rate and share deals, tips, codes, tricks and freebies.
