Snapdeal takes down fake shoe from site

Running an online marketplace is by no means a cakewalk, especially when there is a chance that a pair of shoes shows up as a knock-off of the original. To Hermes loafers then, otherwise priced upwards of Rs 50,000, goes the honour of being available on Snapdeal for Rs 999. However, credit to Snapdeal that the product was booted off the site when the said pair was brought to its notice.

Said a spokesperson, "Snapdeal acts as an intermediary between the seller and buyer of the products listed on the platform. We periodically educate sellers on engaging in fair and safe sales on the platform and consequences of selling counterfeit products. In case of any violations, upon being adequately notified, Snapdeal takes down such listings and we also work with various brands to delist any sellers from our platform who have been credibly identified by such brands as selling fake products.

Seems the platform does not tread lightly when it comes to hard action against counterfeits. We like.
