Snapdeal Emerges as Third Largest E-Commerce Player in India

In the last one year alone, Snapdeal's traffic has grown 61 per cent on its web and mobile sites

Snapdeal registered 87 million visits on its platform in the month of September as festive season began, clearly making it the third largest e-commerce player in the country after Amazon and Walmart-owned Flipkart.

According to latest data from website traffic statistics and market intelligence company SimilarWeb, over the last two years, the traffic to Snapdeal’s web and mobile sites has more than tripled — from 27 million monthly visits in October 2017 to more than 87 million visits in September 2019.

In the last one year alone, Snapdeal’s traffic has grown 61 per cent on its web and mobile sites.

“The growing volumes on Snapdeal are built on a sound and granular understanding of the importance of value in Bharat-focused e-commerce. Our ability to build scale along with favourable unit economics gives Snapdeal an immense competitive advantage,” Kunal Bahl, CEO and Co-founder, Snapdeal, told IANS on Monday.

According to the September data from SimilarWeb, Amazon India continues to lead in the visits metric with 344 million visits with Flipkart-Myntra combined at second place with 314 million visits in September.

Club Factory from China is a distant fourth in the Indian market, with 29 million visits. The list is followed by ShopClues at 8.27 million visit, Tata Cliq at 7.65 million visits and Paytm Mall at 5.62 million visits.

With 848 million visits in the last 12 months, Snapdeal is more than four times the size of Club Factory, which had 205 million visits in the last 12 months, informed the company.
