XSTOK.com, a B2B mobile-first platform for online buying & selling of surplus goods was founded by Sanjiv Khandelwal and co-founder Mihir Shah in 2015. Currently focused on the textile industry, the platform lists the surplus or the excess stock of some of the best mills across India and has conducted more than 300 auctions in less than 7 months.
The platform is aimed at creating a democratic environment wherein the buyers have a much wider choice of goods, without the intermediaries direct from the mills naming a few Arvind, Grasim, Donear, Mafatlal, Bombay dyeing, Trident, Welspun, Gokuldas export, Indo Count etc at transparent prices. At the same time, a seller gets a systematic and quick way to sell its inventory, at market determined prices. As the transactions take place online, there is total transparency to the whole deal and costs of middlemen are saved.
‘XSTOK B2B Badla Business Mumbai Edition roadshow’ will be held on 16th February 2016 at 2:00 pm onwards, in Mahajan Hall, M.J.Cloth Market, 250, Sheikh Memon Street, Zaveri Bazar, Mumbai. Mr. Surendra T. Savai, President of Mumbai Textile Merchant’s Mahajan will inaugurate the roadshow. Entry is free for all textile traders, agents, brokers, distributors and manufacturers.
XSTOK.com will also have live terminals at the venue wherein the people can get the feel of mock auctions and clear their doubts about the transaction.
In order to make the whole experience more inclusive and also to bring in the elements of brick-n-mortar business sensibilities, XSTOK.com is starting a series of ‘XSTOK B2B Badla Business roadshow ’, an interactive and educational buyer/seller engagement program. At the event, XTSOK.com will display the physical samples of the goods to be auctioned. The buyers and the traders will get a chance to touch and feel the samples of the products that are part of the auction at XSTOK.com
