Founder Interview: Budli.in
The Budli ReCommerce (Reverse eCommerce) system allows users to sell their used gadgets directly to us which are then refurbished/recycled/resold in an environment friendly manner.
The reason why they have it lying around is because till now there was no easy way for users to sell their used gadgets. The Budli mechanism allows users to effortlessly sell their used gadgets lying around and get paid for it. This will encourage users to encash their used gadgets which are lying around losing value.
We have a dynamic in built pricing algorithm which takes into account various factors such as the current market price, estimated resale value and price of similar items. The user selects the condition of his/her gadget from predefined criteria based on which the pricing is calculated.
We are currently using offline distribution mechanism for resale. Sale of used gadgets will be offered through our website at a later stage.
The Founder & CVO of Budli is myself (Rohit Bagaria). I did my schooling & college from St. Xavier’s Kolkata and Post-Grad from UC Berkeley, California. I have over 12 years experience in various sectors such as Software, Manufacturing & eCommerce both in the US & India. Currently we have a small team working diligently on Budli and the number of visitors and interest on our website is fast increasing. Our vision is to be the leader in the ReCommerce space in India.
We cannot change the existing reality. To make a change we need to build a new model which will make the existing model obsolete. This is the philosophy behind Budli.
