Snapdeal faces heat from online sellers, after laying off employees
The All India Online Vendors Association (AIOVA), a body of over 2,000 online merchants, has cautioned all its members and requested them to stop selling on the platformYou are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.  |  ET Bureau  |  Updated: February 24, 2017, 08:56 IST
Online marketplace You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view., which is in the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view., is now also facing heat from You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view., with hundreds having already pulled out while several more threaten to quit citing concerns of payment defaults.



The You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. (AIOVA), a body of over 2,000 online merchants, has cautioned all its members and requested them to stop selling on the platform You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. that the company owes all its sellers as payments collected for the sale of goods.



Another seller body, the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view., has also cautioned its 1,500 members to either stop selling on Snapdeal, or to ensure that their dues from the company don't run high.



“There is absolutely no connect between the steps taken to rationalise the team and routine business operations, including regular payment of seller dues. All dues, including towards sellers, continue to be settled as per established processes and timelines without any change. Any apprehension in this regard is without basis.



Business at Snapdeal continues to grow steadily towards profitability and all sellers' dues continue to remain fully secure, as at all times. In case of any query, sellers' partners are advised to connect with the company directly and not pay heed to baseless rumours, including unverified media reports,“ said a Snapdeal spokesman.





AIOVA on Tuesday also sent a formal mail to Commerce minister You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view..



“Our organisation estimates that on any given month, this company (Snapdeal) holds Rs 300 crore - 400 crore in the form of outstanding dues, and goods in transit or refunds. Our constituents are now having a sense of credit risk while dealing with this company due to the past experience in losing money and no immediate relief in case of Askmebazaar and other marketplaces.


We are looking forward to your intervention or assurance from you in this matter. Until then, we have requested our constituents to immediately stop sales on this platform,“ AIOVA wrote in its letter, seen by ET.

Online seller group claims Rs 300 crore at risk, Snapdeal denies any delay

BENGALURU: Online sellers have asked the commerce minister You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. to help safeguard their money as You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.'s troubles grow and fears of cash running out at the company spread. With the uncertainty surrounding the etailer, the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. (AIOVA), said after the impact of demonetisation, this was a further blow to the overall online retail industry which has registered muted growth in the past year.


"Ancillary industries like logistics, e-sellers, among others have already laid off a lot of workforce in the past months. We are scared that Snapdeal may not make the payments, which were collected by them in the past month, on behalf of sellers. Our esti mate is approximately Rs 200300 crore is at risk," a spokesperson of AIOVA told TOI.









A Snapdeal spokesperson said, in response to the seller group's concerns, "There is absolutely no connect between the steps taken to rationalise the team and routine business operations, including regular payment of seller dues. All dues, including towards sellers, continue to be settled according to established processes and timelines without any change. Any apprehension in this regard is without basis. Business at Snapdeal continues to grow steadily towards profitability and all sellers dues continue to remain fully secure, as at all times. In case of any query, sellers partners are advised to connect with the company directly and not pay heed to baseless rumors."








Snapdeal claims to have over 3 lakh vendors on its platform selling about 65 million products across more than 1,000 categories. The online marketplace has been losing market share to rivals specially Amazon, which increased incentives for sellers last year to expand its vendor base. On the back of a severe cash crunch faced by the company, and lesser incentives to sellers has made them turn to rivals like You are not allowed to view links.

  Seller associations do not concur with ecommerce giants' reservations on GST provisio

Seller associations do not concur with ecommerce giants' reservations on GST provision

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/companies/seller-associations-do-not-concur-with-ecommerce-giants-reservations-on-gst-provision/articleshow/57140735.cms
BENGALURU: The top bosses of rival ecommerce platforms You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. and You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. found themselves on the same page last week -more specifically on the page in the draft You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. law that relates to collection of tax at source (TCS) - but even while they cited the negative impact on sellers, many online merchants are making another argument.



The TCS clause mandates online marketplaces to deduct 2% per transaction and hand it over as collection towards GST to the government under the Act. This does not apply to retail sellers offline.



Seller associations such as the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. (AIOVA), which represents 1,800 sellers, say that TCS will only hit sellers evading taxes, and said that the issue of capital blocking on online platforms is already a problem for them.



Recommended By Colombia





"The TCS clause will remove the problem of tax evasion among many sellers and the 'unnatural' competition emerging from it. Secondly, since the ecommerce companies are already holding seller money, TCS will not affect our liquidity," said a spokesperson of AIOVA. The e-Commerce Sellers Association of India, which was earlier known as eSellerSuraksha, says the clause will create a level-playing field among sellers. "Merchants without proper registration will be forced to move out.This makes a level-playing ground for all online sellers in terms of product pricing. The merchants who evade tax may also quit," the seller body said.









However, sellers do have some concerns over TCS. "Product returns in apparel ecommerce range between 15-20%. We will be requi red to claim the TCS from the department directly which is a cumbersome process," said Dhiraj Agarwal, cofounder You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view., an online-first apparel brand.









Associations such as AIOVA have also made certain recommendations to the GST Council on keeping a threshold limit for TCS based on the business of the online seller, especially if the current VAT liability for the merchant is less than the TCS amount.









Ecommerce companies have said that TCS will deter merchants from selling online and will badly hit the digital ecommerce industry holding up working capital. "Working capital will be hit. Also compliance is an added burden for ecommerce companies. Majority of the products carry a return date of 30 days and given 15-20 million transactions per month and the returns, refunds to sellers have to be done with utmost care," said a spokesperson for public policy at Amazon India.






"With TCS, capital will be locked away for periods between 20-50 days depending on the transaction date. The significant impact on the cash flow will force smaller firms to seek additional working capital or ignore the ecommerce marketplace altogether, as it may not offer envisaged convenience and benefits," said a spokeswoman for Snapdeal.

  LImeroad asking to forcefully spend lakh on photo shoot
Posted by: Tushar Khanna - 23-02-2017, 09:00 PM - Forum: Product Listings - Replies (2)

With Regards!!!

I request you for GOD sake look what kind of pain your employees are giving to sellers .

No one has been helping and supporting us and whenever we call they just keep telling to  drop a mail to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. and when we drop them mail they say drop a mail to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. but none of them has ever helped why?

From past few months we have been playing games like this only dropping mails and whenever we upload images according to the mails we received with image resolution they still keep on rejecting images every time?


Then why you have kept guidelines if you yourself do not follow them?

Why you have people in team who are just enjoying sitting there and doing whatever they want to do as they know no one will take any action on them?

I beg you for GOD sake please give us justice as from 8 months and many a mails drop to you before as well no actions have been taken .

Please help as seriously we need help as this LTS team is nothing but waste of team.

Proof and show what he said that every Image we shared is not fitting canvas i.e. 520*680 Image size and also any other seller which is selling the same product on Limeroad is having Front , back and side Images for every color in a combo.


Is there somebody who is really working in Limeroad and can really help ?

Limeroad want me to spend 1.5 lac for photo shoot or else they won't live my products @ Limeroad as they charge 350 per Product and as per telephonic conversation I informed i had 500+ sku's so it turns to be 1.5 lac Approx which I need to pay them to make my products live with Limeroad Team it can be clearly heard that they won't live any products on the website until we spend money on their photo shoot .

  Pl suggest a logistics service provider (including liquids)
Posted by: afj - 22-02-2017, 03:23 PM - Forum: Logistics / Couriers - Replies (1)

Hi
Am just starting an e-commerce site. This is in the healthcare segment for alternative medicines. Im looking for a service provider that will provide me a plugin for the logistics setup into my website, including sms service on delivery status etc to client, and integration with logistics partner. I spoke to shiprocket and they provide service for what i require, but on liquids (syrups, shampoos etc) they only use bluedart for surface transport for liquids and the minimum shipment size is 5kg which gets very expensive. 

Could you suggest other alternatives to address this issue

Thanks

  Are you facing issue in managing Multiple Listing for same SKU ?
Posted by: Wasim Anwar - 22-02-2017, 12:12 PM - Forum: Troubleshooting - No Replies

If you are selling SKU's with multiple listing on marketplaces you can centralize the Inventory updation from Uniware System.

eg. SKU ABC selling with multiple listing (ABC1,ABC2,ABC3,ABC4,ABC5) on same marketplace you can map all of them with master SKU code and manage inventory at one central place.

You can reach us at contactus@unicommerce.com (+91-828-7790-222)
