Explore quikr.com and blog about 3 reasons why you would prefer chat over a phone call. 
With Quikr Nxt, buyers and sellers can immediately connect with each other through chat across Quikr's mobile app, mobile site and even its desktop site. This feature will transform India's online classifieds market as it enables users to communicate with each other at their convenience and request more details about the product or service, without requiring a single phone call.

So, Quickr (click here) has come out with an app that lets you chat with prospective buyers without having to divulge your phone number. Watch the TVC (top) for more. It is a decent innovation for the buy-sell online market in India because it helps one do away with the hassle of annoying phone calls. 

I remember when one of my friends was moving out from the city and he had put his stuff on sale online, he used to get inundated with spammers and trolls the whole day. He had put his laptop on sale and a caller had asked if he could just buy the skin of the laptop. There were people who had called to ask if he needed a job in the new city. It was a nightmare.

This app and website overhaul by Quickr is going to be a game-changer. Here are my Top 3 reasons why I would prefer chat over phone-

1. Buying your own sweet time
With online selling and buying, there is always an element of luck involved. If someone says the right things, pushes the right buttons, the seller is likely to cave and settle for a less profitable deal. Most of the online sellers are in a hurry. 

On phone calls, deals are finalized more hurriedly and without thinking much. The buyer, if street-smart, can dupe the seller with his communication skills and bargaining power. On chat however, you can take your own time to formulate a firm and rigid reply. While typing your reply, you have better control and view of your thoughts. This way, the deal is finalized more nicely with equal leverage for both the parties.

2. A solid proof of the deal
Phone conversations often go unrecorded and there is chance of misinformation of lack of communication between the two parties. In case of chats, screenshots of old chat conversations or archives can help clarify things related to the deal. This saves both the parties from the mental agony of ambiguous deals.

People who are afraid that the seller might not deliver on his promise or that there is no proof of a certain condition being carried out by the buyer can rest easy through this mode.

3. Clear terms
Also, in spoken words, there is always the chance of omission or misinformation. When someone writes the data down in the chat, you can use the information to research on the net, ask your friends and get the best deal possible. Most phone conversations, if not written down immediately, are easily forgotten. Clarity of terms and easy correspondence are possible only through written messages.

Also, it is not that you cannot talk on phone. Once you find the right buyer, you can easily switch to phone calls and speed up the process. So, this method ensure that you get the best of both worlds.

So, what are you waiting for? Go Quickr Nxt!
