Paytm will now sell Suzuki bikes and scooters
As part of the association, over 400+ Suzuki dealers have been on-boarded and the company will also have a brand store on Paytm. The company is looking to sell over 10,000 units within this calendar year. Paytm will also enable vehicle financing to provide higher degree of assistance to consumers while buying a Suzuki product.
Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director (India) at Suzuki Motorcycle said, “Consumers can now book their favorite Suzuki motorbike with the ease of a click on Paytm. Our dealerships present across the country will be actively involved in giving a great consumer experience to Paytm’s customers while fulfilling the orders.”
This comes at a time when Flipkart is set to offer car and bike related online services including buying and selling cars and bikes. These services have already been rolled out in Bengaluru will be introduced across the country by July 2016. This will not only make online purchasing of vehicles easier but will also boost online sales accessories across the Flipkart platform.
Flipkart started selling both four and two wheelers with the Mahindra KUV100. Besides Mahindra, Flipkart also works with Kawasaki and TVS Motors.
It’s been over two years since auto products were sold by e-commerce players for the first time. Back in December 2014, e-tailer Snapdeal .com has entered into an agreement with two-wheeler giant Hero MotoCorp to sell the auto major's two wheelers on its website.
Last year, 1.5 crore units of two-wheelers were sold in India, which was an increase of 1.2% compared to 2014.
