The changes have been incorporated on the basis of the feedback received from sellers and will be effective from this week, a company statement said. However, the marketing fee for nearly 30 sub-categories has been increased marginally, it added.
While the cut in fee ranges from 0.2-18 per cent, the hike ranges from 0.5 to 5.5 per cent, it said. Snapdeal has also simplified policies for its self-serve platform which helps sellers resolve their queries easily. This is expected to enable the sellers avoid penalties due to ignorance or complexity.
To reduce the hassle of return of sold goods, or exchange, Snapdeal said it will bear the cost for reverse pickup and payment collection, while packaging and shipping will be borne by sellers.
