Craftsvilla.com plans to launch video buying option for its online shopping consumers. This innovative search option is expected to be available by the end of January. This is in addition to the existing image search and personalisation features.
The online ethnic store has been constantly working towards creating ease and providing better shopping experience for the consumers. This new feature is in sync with the same. A video helps give the consumer a better view of the product thus making the purchase easier.
“We want shoppers to get a real feel of the product they are buying, video buys will allow the customer to watch a video and then scroll below to identify the products and prices,” said Manoj Gupta, Co-founder of Craftsvilla.com. “It is important for us to innovate and offer a better browsing experience in order to ensure a growing number of consumers.”
