How Can You Use This Flipverse?
The UI of Flipverse will provide a 2D product catalog which will be shown in a 3D-generated store. You will be free to walk around the store to discover new products to shop for. To bring in traffic, the company is planning to host various events, games, mystery boxes, launch events, feature drops, etc. You can call this Flipverse Web 3.0. What we use right now on the app is a traditional 2.0 Web.
Where can we access Flipverse?
It will be launched on its own Flipkart E-commerce platform along with FireDrops. Only Android users will be able to experience the first wave of this verse. So if you use Android, you can just simply open the Flipkart app and start experiencing the virtual world.
What brands to expect on FlipVerse?
Brands like Noise, Puma, Nivea, Tokyo Talkies, VIP, Campus, Lavie, Himalaya, Ajmal Perfumes, Butterfly India, etc will be launching in FlipVerse.
Vice President and Head of Product Deployment and Strategy at Flipkart, Naren Ravula said, “The future growth of e-commerce will be influenced by the immersive technologies of today. Metaverse is one of the significant revolutions in this arena with immense potential. The launch of Flipverse will continue to have an impact on innovative industries like e-commerce and enhance the customer experience while delivering a gamified and immersive shopping experience. Especially in light of the adoption of the metaverse and web3 platforms by multiple brands in India. By providing customers with access to their preferred brands, offers, SuperCoins, and digital collectibles, we are aiming to improve their shopping experiences in a virtual and immersive setting.”
Polygon’s Co-Founder said, “While we have only just begun to scratch the surface of what’s possible in the metaverse, we see e-commerce as one of the killer use cases. Combining top brands with Flipkart’s e-commerce expertise in a virtual environment stands to revolutionize online retail as we know it. Flipverse will be a vibrant, visible expression of the metaverse. I’m proud that this activation is taking place on Polygon.”
CEO at eDAO, Anand Ventakeswaran said, “A metaverse must enable a tangible connection for consumers with brands and creators. It must function as a portal to new experiences and engagement loops. With partners like GuardianLink and Surreal Events, Flipverse does all this in just its first iteration. Flipverse can unlock much value over time, but for Diwali, we simply optimized for delight. Bringing creative and technical heft to Flipkart’s vision is a privilege for eDAO.”
Gaurav Khatri, Co-Founder of Noise said, “The emergence of future-forward technologies has become key to creating new and engaging experiences for users in the new-age era. As a brand that breathes innovation, we are thrilled to be part of Flipkart’s Virtual World. Setting up virtual stores to showcase our lineup, giving our users an enthralling experience of navigating through the world in personalized avatars. Noise is driven by consumer-centricity at its core. We are always on the lookout for avenues that help us further elevate the bar of consumer engagement. Flipkart’s Virtual World will help add a new meaning to consumers’ purchase journeys and I am certain that users would love their experience while shopping for their favorite Noise devices on the Flipkart app.”
