We all have had our tough times with booking online at IRCTC but now they ensure you effective shopping experience with their newly launched site Shop.irctc.co.in. The operations will be done under the company name Shop Online Trading Pvt Ltd (SOTPL).
It was previously reported that IRCTC selected Yebhi to become the white label solution provider for its online retail programme. Interestingly, that is why the website design and model is almost the replica of Yebhi’s. Infact, the payment will also be done via pay.yebhi.com.
With this IRCTC will be leveraging its 2 crore registered users at the ticket booking site. It will be selling apparels, accessories, mobiles & tablets etc. It boasts of offering more than 30,000 products from more than 500 brands.
Consumers can avail free shipping for orders above Rs 500 while an extra cost of Rs 75 will be charged on orders below that. All major modes of payments are adopted including COD (which is limited to certain pin-codes).
Tying up with Yebhi will be a positive step for IRCTC and will ensure a smooth functioning of the operations. What would be interesting to know will be that the success of shopping portal will also result in a positive consumer impact on IRCTC ticket booking.
