Snapdeal, India Post join Hands to bring weavers to net
Online marketplace Snapdeal has partnered India Post to jointly work on bringing thousands of weavers and artisans from Varanasi through its website.
Snapdeal has launched a pilot project with India Post to set-up facilitation desks at Varanasi post offices to enable local weavers to sell on its platform.
“This is an endeavour by Snapdeal and India Post to empower local artisans, small and medium entrepreneurs to sustain their livelihood by providing a platform to popularise their indigenous products,” Snapdeal CEO and co-founder Kunal Bahl said.
Through this association, weavers will be able to access the national audience by listing their products on Snapdeal, at negligible cost, he added.
The post offices will act as a dropping point for sellers, and India Post will deliver the goods to the buyers.
