Flipkart has been working to make a refurbished market to ease shopping for long. Based on the learnings from eBay, Flipkart has decided to launch refurbished market, and this was announced late last month by CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy. A previously unorganized sector has another giant’s participation, 2GUD whose operations would be completely distinct and separate from Flipkart. The Bengaluru based Flipkart would make thorough tests on original products, and offer certified warranty varying from 3-12 months on its refurbished market platform.
The products sold would be serviced through a well-sorted service network throughout the country. Initially, the eye candy to Flipkart’s 2Gud would be seen in the refurbished mobile phones, laptop computers, and tablets, which would, in near future also include home appliances and other goods in its refurbished market called 2Gud. In a statement issued by the CEO, this market is aimed at “value buyers” who are looking for refurbished goods.

Flipkart owned 2Gud for the refurbished market will play a major in driving budget shoppers to premium products. Although, with its great accreditation for shopping experience refurbished market will gain trust quickly among the budget buyers and refurbished sellers. Moreover, Flipkart will also keep a strict quality check on refurbished items so that the buyers use their product hassle free. However, with its 10-day easy return policy will be super beneficial for the refurbished shopping market. Initially, 2Gud would be starting the refurbished market with Mobiles, Laptops, Tablets, Smart Watches, Accessories and plan to introduce 400+ categories in the giant refurbished market “2Gud”
2GUD predicts that the refurbished goods market, on gaining the trust of users, would go on to become a 20 billion dollar industry in the next half-decade. To be a leader in this segment of e-commerce in India is not an easy task, given the “trust issues” that continue to persist in this part of the pie.
