IndiHappyHours# Quikr Nxt

Got an oversized dress? Want to sell? …
Getting shifted? Want to sell furniture? …
Tired of playing the same Guitar? Want to sell it? …
Moving in to your new apartment? Want to buy home furnishings?
Planning to buy a new mobile? Want some good bargain at market price?

So much to buy and so much to sell!! But don’t want to get troubled with Umpteen no. of calls at odd hours? Don’t want to waste energy in talking? Fed up of Hoax calls and want only genuine buyers? Don’t know how to be sure of the product being good enough for a bet?

Well Quikr has a solution for you then!
“Online classifieds website Quikr announced the launch of a new feature, called Quikr Nxt, which allows users to chat using the website or mobile app. This means users can choose to make a listing private, which hides their email ID and phone number on the site.”

These are three of the reasons I would choose Chat over a phone Call for such transactions…

No. 1 : It’s very hard to manage to take every phone call, many of which are only interested in enquiring about the product lacking a serious interest in buying. If you are at work, and phone keeps ringing every now and then, it might be disturbing not only for you but your boss too! So chat I guess is a preferred option.

No. 2 : While chatting one can clear one’s doubt more clearly. Got a  doubt about how many zips a handbag has, If there are some broken strings in the guitar, If the furniture looks good from every angle… All these doubts are better addressed when you have the option to send and receive as many pics of the product, from as many angles as you would like. Sending a pic simply makes it so much better than having to explain all the minor details. For the buyer too it becomes easy to judge about every aspect of the product he is in the process of buying.

No. 3 : It’s better to Chat because your number is safe. No need to make your number public. No threat of some crank calls from some irritating characters. You can also save your chat history and get relieved from remembering all the details which were talked about. For later reference you just need to check your chat history. It is convenient for the buyers too. They don’t have to make notes of prices quoted by different sellers. They may have parallel chat with multiple users and compare the price simultaneously very conveniently. They may chose to get notifications while offline also. So it’s a win-win situation for Buyer as well as Seller.

So NO FIKAR, CHAT QUIKR … Start now at
