Airtel is going to launch mobile bazaar which is termed as M-Bazaar for its subscribers to sell and buy any items through sms. The SMS-based service enables buyers and sellers to hook up with each other through messages just like the Web portal, ebay, does for Internet users. To start with, the mobile service operator has introduced a handset segment for trading, but soon subscribers will be able to trade in other verticals such as real estate, automobiles and electronics.
Give some quick details on what you want to buy or sell – Handset Brand, model, city in which phone is needed and Price. The profile is created & the best matches would come through SMS alerts.
Airtel has been launching new initiatives in a bid to increase its revenue from value added services. As voice revenues decline due to low tariffs, mobile phone operators are looking to move into new areas such as mobile commerce, mobile health and mobile banking.
The backend service provider for Airtel mBazaar and who is powering the mobile sale is Ver-se.
