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.

Microsoft has made its unified Office experience combining the Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps available for Android users worldwide.

Now these key apps are available independently as well as in a unified form.

Earlier the unified experience designed for mobile users was available only to Office Insiders as a preview, and Microsoft had only started testing it with a small group of users, Thurrott.com reported on Monday, adding that the company was releasing the app for everyone this week.

The app allows users to instantly create PDFs from photos or Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents, easily transfer files between their phone and computer or share instantly with nearby mobile devices, sign PDFs using finger, quickly jot down ideas and notes with Sticky Notes and scan QR codes to open links, among others.

The Office app can be downloaded for free and in-app purchases in India can range from Rs 420-Rs 590 per item. “Anyone can download the Office app for free and start using it right away. Access and save documents to the cloud by connecting with a Microsoft Account (for OneDrive or SharePoint) or by connecting to a third-party cloud storage provider,” according to Microsoft.

“Logging in with a personal, work, or school Microsoft Account connected to an Office 365 subscription will unlock premium features within the app,” it added. According to a report in Android Police, the new Office app does not work too well with tablet devices yet.
