"We have been able to improve conversion rates upto 50 per cent, reduce RTOs (return to origin) by upto 40 per cent across the spectrum of merchants, across categories," said Chirag Taneja, Co-founder and CEO, GoKwik.

"As we expand our network of merchants, we will keep bringing in upgraded solutions to help them realise incremental GMV," he added.

GoKwik said it has delivered GMV realisations in excess of $1 billion for its merchants, serving more than 80 million customers on its network of brands.

It claimed to have achieved over 3,500 per cent in revenue, and growing its team by 80 per cent (on-quarter), fully remotely.

GoKwik is now building an enablement stack to nurture the e-commerce sector that is flourishing with new-age D2C brands, social commerce platforms and marketplaces.

The company said it will use the funds to hire new talent extensively across the tech, product, and data science teams.?

"Low conversion rate is a key pain point for most e-commerce merchants, and GoKwik's product offerings precisely solve that problem," said Shashin Shah, Managing Partner, Think Investments.
