Mumbai-based local discovery and delivery service Scootsy has entered into an exclusive partnership with India Book Distributors (IBD) to deliver books in 60 minutes to major parts of the city. This will allow Scootsy customers to search, discover and order from a wide selection of books across a range of genres that IBD stocks. IBD is India’s dominant importer of English language books, magazines and education and training materials.
For now, customers between Cuffe Parade and Juhu can get their orders delivered in 60 minutes, with more locations to be added shortly. Books are a dominant online category accounting for about 15% of online shopping.
Quick feedback and question to Scootsy team : The entire site is geared towards one intent : food/eating. There is no mention of books. Isn’t that weird?
