New Delhi : Leading online marketplace Flipkart has become first online marketplace in India to cross 100 million registered users milestone.
With this, Flipkart becomes the first company to reach this milestone in a single country outside the United States and China. This landmark was crossed just six months after hitting the 75 million registered users mark in March 2016, the company said in a statement.
Binny Bansal, CEO and Co-Founder, Flipkart said, “This is a small step in our efforts to build a platform that provides quality products accessible and affordable to millions of Indians shopping online. Since the time we sold the first book to our first customer in 2007 till today, our journey has always been about providing a superior shopping experience to our customers while continuously raising the quality of service and selection.
This milestone has further energized us to ramp-up our efforts and build a world-class shopping destination.”
With 100 million users, Flipkart’s registered customer base stands at around 63 per cent of entire wireless and wireline broadband connections in India.
The figures released by TRAI in September 2016 put the number of broadband connections in the country at under 160 million.
