Three reasons why I would prefer chat over a phone!

In a previous blog post I had written about how I would be using Quikr to my advantage if I have to relocate to Bangalore. Surprisingly the Bangalore Quikr page turned out to be the cheapest option for buying my basic start up goods and that made me a Quikr fan. Today I was overwhelmed to see that Quikr has introduced web-chat feature which is certainly a new idea and a welcome step to next generation buying or selling items. Here I will tell you how it is superior over other contact options.

I could directly tell you advantages of this Quikr chat feature but that won't help you to realize its importance unless you get a view of the present market options. At first let us discuss how the system works in other classified websites. There the seller puts up an ad of the item he wants to sell. Sometimes all the details are well enlisted by the seller with relevant photos of the product and his contact number or email address. But most of the time details are inadequate and photos are either taken from internet or simply absent! If you are a buyer either you have to mail or call the seller. Mailing is mostly a slow option and many people in India still do not check their mail inbox regularly. If you call the seller can be busy at that moment and may not be free enough or rather polite enough to interact with you in a way you would expect him to do. Keep it in mind, your phone balance is getting consumed whether the talk was productive or not! But with Quikr chat you are interacting in real time with buyers or sellers. Thus no waiting period, no monetary expenses and no psychological stress from any end!

In phone the buyer may express his desire to see few more clear photos of the product. If you are a seller you have to cut the call, take photographs and send to prospective buyer's email address. But with Quikr chat it can be done in less than a minute, thus making the whole process hell lot quicker! Quikr chat also enables you to hide you contact details, helping you to save your precious mail address or mobile phone number from people with doubtful intentions. Recently a lady known to me had put ad of her old books in another classified website. Since the day she had put her ad, she started getting objectionable calls and vulgar messages from various unknown numbers. Thus Quikr chat will help to avoid such unwanted scenarios for women in our society which is very essential. So, these are my overall three reasons for preferring Quikr chat over phone. Would you please explore Quikr and let me know what do you think about the amazing Quikr NXT?
