A metaverse space where Flipkart customers can shop in a photorealistic virtual destination via the Flipkart app. Think of it as a virtual shopping theater where you engage in immersive shopping and also communicate with brands in the metaverse.
In partnership with eDAO, a Polygon-incubated organization that designs and launches global art, media and entertainment IPs at scale into the world of Web3, Flipverse will offer gamified, interactive and immersive shopping experiences for consumers in a digital world by giving them access to their favorite brands, Supercoins, and digital collectibles.
Flipverse aims to enable customers to get closer to their favorite brands in an interactive metaverse where the communication runs two ways. Flipverse will be available on Flipkart’s newly launched platform FireDrops, which can be accessed from the Flipkart app.
How does the Flipverse change the game for e-commerce? How will it redefine the shopping experience for consumers today? How does Web3 and the metaverse revolutionize brand partnerships?
The platform will allow users to discover and shop products in an interactive way. At present, the service will be available for 15 brands including apparel brand Puma, cosmetics and personal care brand Nivea, and homegrown electronics brand Noise.
Flipverse is already live on the Flipkart app for Android smartphone users. The pilot experience will be live till October 23.
