    they are closing their site and moving to an app only platform.Totally phasing out website will be a foolish thing. App may be good but many people would prefer to use website. Why can't they use both platforms? bad move....

    They will not close it, they are probably doing this to create hype in the media so they get more attention and eventually become even more popular. I might be wrong but it seems like a marketing strategy to me.

    I agree with you 100%

    They don't need to wait one year to be only an app, this is nothing but pure marketing.

    Today, every second Internet user is having smartphone. In, India you are finding a smartphone in Just 3-5K, And For using these services like Whats app and every user connect with Internet on hand. So, If they target User on there SmartPhone then its not bad And mostly Personally I love shopping through Mobile Apps.

    Even, i am also a Seller On these Big MarketPlaces Still I love shopping using my smartphone.
