However, through this partnership with Zolvit, merchants will have access to a comprehensive range of legal, tax, and compliance services, as well as other useful offerings, at reasonable rates. This will help them streamline their business operations and achieve greater efficiency.
Speaking about the partnership, Nitya Sharma, Co-Founder and CEO of Simpl, said, “As a merchant-focused organization, we are committed to solving the critical pain points for them, given our nuanced understanding of the industry over the years. In this endeavor, we have instituted a ‘Booster Package’ which brings together services from allied sectors that are necessary for business growth. From credit to digital marketing and now legal and compliance services with Zolvit, we are enabling D2C merchants to focus on their offerings cost-effectively. We are excited about our partnership with Zolvit and aim to utilize our synergies in fulfilling the evolving requirements of D2C merchants across the country”.
As per the “Beyond E-commerce 3.0” study conducted by Kalaari Capital, the Indian e-commerce landscape has witnessed a significant influx of at least 50 million new users in the past two years, largely due to the rapid digitization resulting from the pandemic. Furthermore, India is projected to have 1.1 billion internet users by 2025, with 30% of them expected to participate in online shopping. This presents a significant opportunity for D2C merchants, who are predicted to achieve $50 billion in sales by 2025.
Under its D2C Simplified program, Simpl is fostering a nascent Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) ecosystem as part of its community outreach efforts. Simpl currently collaborates with more than 26,000 merchants throughout the country. As a means of empowering this ecosystem, Simpl’s Booster Package has been working in partnership with associated businesses.
“Our mission at Zolvit is to empower entrepreneurs and small businesses by providing them with personalized legal solutions. Partnering with Simpl is an excellent opportunity for us to expand our reach and help D2C merchants across the country with their legal, tax, and compliance needs. By working together, we can create a seamless and reliable ecosystem that supports the growth of the D2C sector in India,” said Hrishikesh Datar – Founder and CEO, Zolvit.
