Flipkart has recently launched a new e-commerce platform, 2GUD. It is a platform for trading of refurbished goods.
2GUD is a market that deals with refurbished goods. Right now, it is only dealing in smartphones and laptops. Later, it is expected to expand and sell other refurbished electronic appliances as well. To make maintain customers trust, goods will be tested and available with a warranty period. This will help the customers to build trust on refurbished goods and encourage its trading.
As of now, Flipkart has not launched the official 2GUD app. Although, you can use the platform from your phone’s browser. 2GUD is launched to be careful about the affordability, availability, and accessibility along with customers trust and convenience.
Warranty details for products sold by 2GUD:
The website clearly states the warranty period for each refurbished product, individually. Generally, warranty details of each category of product are mentioned in its “Warranty Details” section. These are as follows:
- Smartphones: 6-12 months
- Laptops: 6-12 months
- Tablets: 3-12 months
- Smartwatches: 3 months
- Accessories: 3 months
The products that are sold on 2GUD Flipkart will be either used or opened or defected product which has now been assessed and fixed by the team. The process followed by Flipkart 2GUD (e-commerce portal) is as follows:
- Functionality: All the parts of the product are tested, thoroughly.
- Repair and Restoration: If any fault found, it is repaired and stored to default.
- Quality Check: Finally, the restored product is again checked and graded. The grading is done from 1 to 5 based on the functioning of the product (after repair and restoration).
How to sell on 2Gud:
Unlike OLX, 2Gud is not a customer to customer dealing portal. It is an e-commerce portal launched by Flipkart. Hence, all the deals are enclosed by the website, itself. You cannot sell the product directly on the website. This is because Flipkart’s 2GUD wishes to provide its customer a verified and corrected product. So, they first follow the refurbishing procedure, verify the goods and finally sell it on their 2GUD website.
While purchasing the customers should keep in mind that the products sold are refurbished. Flipkart has verified, accessed, tested the products before making it available on their 2GUD website. The value of products on 2GUD is way less than its actual value. A repaired or restored product cannot be the same as the original product. Even if something does not work at your home, you call a repairman. After repair, it will work but not in the same way as it used to work when it was a brand new product. Similarly, products sold on 2 GUD will work well but not as same as the brand new one. Since its launch, 2GUD mobiles are the most dealt in the product. Although, 2GUD reviews are not so good because the customers are comparing the refurbished goods with the brand new product.
2GUD provide products at less cost, verified and certified warrant. Keep in mind that the products are refurbished.
