Mobile web is an important gateway for e-commerce

While native apps are getting more and more popular, browsers are also providing increasingly better web experience to users. Only recently, UC Browser’s mega online shopping carnival saw over 17 million hits, with increased demand for lifestyle and household products. UC Browser also reported a 75% jump in its traffic for e-commerce in the month leading up to Diwali 2015.

“Flipkart has always believed in providing a superior and convenient shopping experience to its users across all touch points. With mobile becoming the main front where the next gen of shoppers are coming from, this launch strengthens our mission to create an extremely responsive interface for users, even on the mobile web. We are excited to partner with UCWeb and revolutionize the e-commerce landscape in the country.” said Surojit Chatterjee, Senior Vice President and Head Consumer Experience & Growth – Flipkart.
