In the news 📰
Citibank’s saying bye bye 👋👋
This week Citibank announced their decision to exit their credit card and retail banking interests in India. The bank has decided to exit from 13 countries India being one of them. Currently their strategy is to find a suitor for their retail (2.9 million) and credit card (2.2 million credit card) customers and transfer these accounts to the another bank.
While this has been announced as a larger global strategy for Citibank, we can’t help but wonder whether the rise of local Fintechs has played a small part in this consolidation?
Flipkart acquires Cleartrip
Much loved travel booking platform Cleartrip has been acquired by Flipkart. Cleartrip will continue to operate as a separate brand and retain all its employees, which is great news.
As a brand they pioneered great design, user interface and online experience for their consumers since 2006. They were the first Indian tech company to stand out for their UI/UX. We remember there was a time when startup founders used to tell their designers “I want it to be as a clean and crisp as Cleartrip”.
Amazon seller community keeps growing
E-commerce still barely accounts for 3-4 per cent of overall retail in India. More than 2.5 lakh new sellers have joined Amazon since last year. Post COVID-19 there has been an increase of news sellers joining the platform by 50%.
Meanwhile, there is a 4 way battle royale underway to become the kings of E-commerce in India and this saga is just about getting started, bring out your popcorn buckets for this one 🍿
Feature alert 📢
Benefits program for small and medium businesses
At Swipez, we have partnered with product companies to bring you offers that are useful for your business. Our new benefits program provides you offers from AWS, Cashfree, Boost360 and more. Check out the Benefits tab in your Swipez dashboard to avail these offers. Don’t forget to keep an eye on your Benefits tab as we keep adding more products onto it.
One app we use...
Grammarly is a plugin for your Chrome browser. The plugin integrates with Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google docs and more. Basically, all the places where you need to type out content. It’s not just a spell check tool which is typically based on a dictionary, but also suggests updates to your grammar, writing style and tone.
If you haven’t tried it already, it’s worth giving it a shot. It might just help you getting your point across more clearly 😉
That’s it for this week, till next time. Stay safe and keep up the good work! 👋
