Quikr has launched QuikrScanner, a diagnostic app for mobile phones. Enabling consumers to remotely assess and evaluate the condition and quality of mobile phones listed on the platform, QuikrScanner offers consumers a convenient way to make better informed purchase decisions.
Quikr is India’s only marketplace to offer its users such an app, which runs up to 20 tests to evaluate an android phone, including its battery, front and rear camera, network etc. This is an important step as the adoption of the pre-owned mobile phone category is growing rapidly in the country.
“C2C is a strategic category for us and as leaders in this space with over 30 million unique visitors on our platform, we have always strived to build trust and safety in transactions between our buyers and sellers. The QuikrScanner diagnostic app was recently introduced on our Android app, m-site and desktop in order to bring more transparency to transactions of pre-owned mobiles.”
“..already 20% of mobile listings on Quikr have the QuikrScanner report attached,”Anurag Saran, CPO, Quikr
QuikrScanner also comes embedded in Quikr’s mobile app, and sellers who use the Quikr app to post an ad from the phone will be able to seamlessly demonstrate the quality of their phones to prospective buyers. Sellers posting an ad from the mobile site or desktop can also run QuikrScanner by installing it on the phone that they intend to sell.
