Snapdeal on Wednesday launched Shopo, a mobile-based open marketplace which will allow small businesses to list their products without paying any commission.

Businesses can now list their products on Shopo without submitting any document and long verification procedures and reach out to customers without paying Snapdeal any commission for the sale.

Individuals selling anything from cakes to jewellery can click photo of their products and list on Shopo for sale. The application also provides a chat facility for customers to interact with shop owners.

A seller and a buyer can choose a mutually convenient mode of transaction as well as delivery. The application is currently available on Android and Apple's iOS platform. "We have launched Shopo, a mobile-based open marketplace that will allow businesses as well as individuals to harness the power of Internet instantly and at zero cost," Snapdeal co-founder and chief executive officer Kunal Bahl told reporters in New Delhi.

"The aim is to bring one million such entities on the Shopo platform in the next one year," he added.
