Commerce through
Communities 

Traditional eCommerce channels cater to India’s cities, while the needs of rural India remains largely unaddressed.

Beet attempts to reimagine the eCommerce experience for India’s first-time internet users by bringing communities together, curating products relevant to the community, and enabling assisted commerce through chat and short videos.

Why Beet?

Millions of new internet users are coming online in India. They are very different from the initial waves of internet users - be it income profiles, education levels, language skills, or social/cultural milieus. They will be driven not just by intent, but impulse too. This calls for easier product discovery, emphasis on smaller and unbranded products, prioritizing value over convenience, leveraging influencers and social media, offering bulk-buying for better pricing, using Hinglish and Indic languages, and leveraging viral content to drive customer acquisition.

 

With eCommerce 2.0, online shopping is likely to evolve from being a hobby to a habit. This could also see a rise in women shoppers in smaller cities, expand India’s online market and make it truly inclusive. Beet aspires to be make this change happen.
