What ignited us to start BuyMeStuff!
Our story began when Abhi (Co founder) moved to Australia and was looking to buy some household products [TV, fridge etc] for his apartment and Like most other shoppers, he loved a bargain but did not to want to visit several retail stores or hunt for deals online. He wasn’t comfortable buying online as he was unsure if he could trust the retailer he is buying from, worried about online fraud and what if the goods don’t arrive on time. He decided to reach out to his good mate Mahendra (Co founder), a savvy online buyer with the knack for finding great deals, to help him out. Mahendra didn’t disappoint and got some amazing deals for Abhi. However he had to spend significant amount of his time searching for the best deal online, calling retailers and negotiating prices & delivery requirements as the current online solution was static with fixed pricing and limited option to engage with retailers. Even for a savvy buyer it was time consuming as there was no way for Mahendra to engage with the retailers online, ask multiple retailers for a good deal and let them know exactly what he wanted without visiting a physical store. So Abhi and Mahendra started thinking, why should the consumer do all this hard work of researching, hunting for offers, negotiating and figuring out if retailers are local or overseas? .
Both Abhi and Mahendra discussed this problem and realised while it was impacting the buyers it was also hurting the local retailers significantly. Retailers were the ones missing out on sales due to fixed pricing and limited engagement online. There had to be a better way. A way by which customers could specify what they wanted including their budget, service or bundle they want and trusted local retailers could respond with their best offers. We wanted to create a platform that allowed retailers to engage with customers with the ability to replicate the ‘in store customer experience’ online. Our view was to have only local trusted retailers on this platform so that shoppers like Abhi who are skeptical about buying online don’t have to worry about Fraud, shipping times and Trust. With this in mind the vision of BuyMeStuff was born.
