POPxo Launches Ecommerce Platform
POPxo, India’s largest digital community for women today announced the launch of its e-commerce platform selling private label merchandise. POPxo is the market-leader in creating short and engaging content. The recent success of its first web series, “Unmarried” has established POPxo in the long format content space as well. Now it’s all set to enter the world of retail with products that are well-priced and designed to appeal to the millennial audience. The pricing for the new range of products starts at Rs. 299, for mugs. Laptop bags are priced at Rs. 999, canvas pouches at Rs. 599 and tote bags at Rs. 999.
POPxo Founder & CEO, Priyanka Gill says “Millennial women are a large and under-served market, especially in the lifestyle products category. The POPxoecommerce platform will create and sell product lines especially for them. We already know what appeals to women online - our private label is a natural extension. Content-Community-Commerce has always been our mission and with this launch we solidify our position.”
“We are uniquely placed as the marketing costs for our ecommerce platform are very low. We already have millions of women who engage with POPxocontent on a daily basis - now we hope to wow then with our private label offering”, she adds.
Vani Kola, Managing Director, Kalaari Capital says, “POPxo has established itself as a content-platform-of-choice for young women in India with a strong community of over 17M users. We believe that Commerce is the most logical step for the company at this stage. The lifestyle products market is fragmented & women-centric, and POPxo’s private label can service this market really well through its rich data-driven personas & enhanced personalization.”
Just like their content, POPxo’s merchandise has been designed especially for their users. With five collections to suit every mood and personality, the content giant is offering lifestyle produces like laptop sleeves, tote bags, multi-purpose pouches, phone covers, and lots more. They will expand into fashion and beauty over the next few months.
Shubham Jain, Business Head - Ecommerce at POPxo says, “From design to production and distribution - we are running the entire process in-house and via our partnerships with service providers. It is very exciting to launch ecommerce for an established brand, loved by millions as we have a large, established buyer base and proven marketing strength.”
