No Fikar, Chat Quikr !!

Online classifieds website Quikr makes it very easy to sell your products online. It allows you to post free advertisements of your product. You could even sell used products and get a good price for it. 

While this was good, there were some factors which used to worry me -

Details : For someone who wants to purchase a product, it is not easy to get many details in the advertisement. Few details which are of the buyer's interest may not be provided in the advertisement.

Privacy : From a buyer's perspective, if proper details are not provided in the advertisement, they would want to contact the seller. This makes it mandatory for the seller to reveal his contact information and share it to the public where by there is no privacy. Also It gets overwhelming when the calls come at inconvenient times. 
However recently announced the launch of a new feature, called Quikr NXT, which allows buyers and sellers to connect with each other in real-time. The feature also enable users to chat with multiple users and share images.

This is definitely an awesome feature. As i read about it, there seems to be many more cool features which makes me install the Quikr NXT app on my smartphone.


Privacy: With enhanced privacy features, Quikr NXT 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. now the seller does not have to share their contact details with anyone. The only point of contact becomes their Quikr ID, and they can use Quikr NXT to chat with people using the app on your phone, or on the website.Not everyone wants to share their contact details with unknown people. So this is really awesome feature.

Chat and Chat History : Chatting has many advantages over calls. While negotiating for a phone call, it is not easy for a seller to remember each buyer's negotiations. Likewise for a buyer, if there are multiple sellers selling the same item it is not easy to remember the price quoted by each seller. That is where chat comes helpful. If the conversations are done over chat, user does not need to keep notes of all transactions and can easily go to the chat history to check the price. 

Photo Sharing: Sharing photos are easier on chat than on emails. While having a conversation through email, if the seller has not provided all views of the product and the buyer wants some specific photos, he would have to email or call the seller and the seller would then take his time to send the required photo. Overall this is time consuming. But if the conversation happened through chat, sharing photos is more faster and easier. With Quikr NXT the seller can easily click and send the picture required for the product in just a few seconds over the chat.
