"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.

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.
