25. Conclusion • After studying and Analyzing the strategies of Paytm & Snapdeal, Paytm has great potential to grow and become first ecommerce website to achieve profit by its cashback model. • As far we have seen any product/service launch in Paytm comes with great offers(Huge amount of cashback). Example- Paytm offered movie tickets with 100%cashback on second ticket which gave a tough competition to giant company like BookMyShow. • Snapdeal however needs to expand & diversify itself in areas like making a payment gateway of its own • Paytm has reached a level where more expansion and diversification would be making its app bulky & huge traffic could result in failure of Recharge or Transactions. • Though with proper updates and efficiency Paytm can diversify itself in markets where Snapdeal has already tapped & thus giving direct competition by its cash back model strategy.
