MUMBAI, India -- August 29, 2013
Rediff.com India Pvt. Ltd (NASDAQ: REDF) today enhanced its online shopping
marketplace offering by introducing a free app, “Rediff Shopping,” that
enables users in India to check prices of books by simply scanning the
barcode and then make purchases directly from their mobile devices.
Apart from books, some of the key categories from which consumers can purchase
goods using the Rediff Shopping app are Apparel, Accessories and Bags, Mobile
Phones and Accessories, Sports and Fitness Equipment, Cameras and Optics, Toys
and Games, Computers & Peripherals, Home Décor & Furnishings, among others.
Users can browse the top selling deals on products and the top selling books
or use the search function directly on the Rediff Shopping app to look up a
product of their interest.
The new shopping app uses the same secure payment gateway as the parent
website to offer multiple payment options to its users, including cash on
delivery, cheque/demand draft payment, net banking, and both debit and credit
cards. It is fast, efficient and highly secure.
“We are encouraged by the consumer response to our online shopping marketplace
business and anticipate future growth to come from mobile devices as 3G and
broadband services continue to expand,” said Ajit Balakrishnan, Chairman and
CEO of Rediff.com India Ltd. “We believe the introduction of the Rediff
Shopping app that works across a wide range of mobile device platforms will
position us for growth in the online shopping space in India, especially with
the continued proliferation of mobile devices in our country.”

BlackBerry World or by visiting Rediff.com/shoppingapp.
