Product/Service Summary

Demoport is a first-of-its-kind B2B2C Online+ Marketplace that combines the features of digital classifieds and online shopping. In the process, Demoport makes discovering, connecting and transacting with authentic local sellers much easier, quicker and safer.

At Demoport, users can compare prices of branded products at popular local stores, clear queries with sellers through chats and then buy online. If the product warrants a demo or presentation (direct selling products), users can also book an enquiry and get doorstep support from brand-authorized dealers nearest to them.

How are we different?

1. Connect buyers and sellers in the same location
2. Enable pre-sales engagements between buyers and sellers
3. List only genuine local sellers having offline infrastructure
4. Facilitate express deliveries ( Mostly same day deliveries )
5. Offer an escalation matrix ( brand-connect ) to buyers for their post-sales support
