THE FUTURE OF E-COMMERCE IS LOCAL, AND WE ARE BUILDING THE FUTURE.

JingleBid understands that corner stores greatly drive the economy and have created a decentralised marketplace that is a win-win for both sellers and buyers.  JingleBid's marketplace is a platform to help local sellers by connecting them to buyers.

Why should you buy on Jinglebid?

JingleBid's core mission is to save you time and money with our decentralised marketplace.  We started with a simple proof of concept in May 2020, and now we are a full-blown marketplace.  Before deciding to purchase, the primary concern is knowing if the price is right.  JingleBid solves this problem as you receive prices from sellers whom you have not checked before.  When the received bid is less than what you have already checked, both online and offline, you know you have found the right place to buy the product.

JingleBid refines the best sellers around your location and onboards sellers who care about their customers.

JingleBid's Revolutionary Approach:

Auction
Reverse Auction

Reverse Auction is an auction method where the roles are reversed, meaning the sellers of a product are the actual bidders.  This essentially means that several sellers are bidding for a sale with one customer.

Demand
Demand-Driven Strategy

In a supply-driven marketplace, products from the sellers are listed.  In Jinglebid, we list products that are most in need by customers and based on the demand, the sellers are identified.  This makes it more efficient for both the buyers and the sellers.

Shiping
Decentralised Online Marketplace

Decentralisation has revolutionised the world, giving more power to the customers.  India has a vibrant retail industry throughout the country, including tier-2 and tier-3 cities.  Most of the products are available within a 5 KM radius from where you are.  This solves issues like delayed delivery, unresolved returns and replacements, all leveraging existing systems in place.  Jinglebid organises this sector and brings a uniform customer experience on top of it.

Money
Bridging the Buyer-Seller Gap

Conventional online shopping platforms have widened the gap between buyers and brick and mortar stores, whereas Jinglebid bridges this gap by connecting buyers with genuine nearby sellers.
