Flipverse: Flipkart revolutionizes online shopping with the Virtual World Shopping Experience

Flipkart, an Indian online marketplace, is entering the realm of immersive shopping experiences with Virtual Worlds in order to enhance customer satisfaction and engagement. Building on their previous introduction of 3D and AR features and Beauty/Makeup Try-ons in 2021, Flipkart is now prioritizing immersive shopping. By providing users with lifelike visualizations of products and incorporating interactive and enjoyable elements, these spaces aim to increase engagement and help customers make better-informed purchase decisions.

Flipkart has achieved a significant milestone in the global e-commerce industry with the successful implementation of Flipverse (the link is only available through the app only for Android users currently) a virtual metaverse activation. This innovative initiative attracted people from 2,300 cities who were able to explore products and engage in a truly unique experience.

The Flipverse streaming sessions amassed an impressive total of 20,000 hours, with a consistent stream of 300-500 users connecting to the virtual world on their mobile devices every minute. It is worth noting that users who created personalized avatars spent six times more time in Flipverse compared to the average user, highlighting the platform’s captivating appeal and ability to captivate audiences. Building on this success, Flipkart is now offering brands the opportunity to create customized virtual metaverse worlds within their platform.

Flipkart is providing two different types of shopping experiences that are designed to fully engage customers and create a sense of immersion.

  • The initial format involves specialized Virtual Worlds designed by brands such as Coca-Cola and Mondelez specifically for the Flipkart app. These virtual spaces are visually rich and interactively engaging, catering to the evolving trends in shopping and creating an immersive experience for users.
  • Flipkart’s Virtual World, called Flipverse, incorporates the co-tenancy of brands in its second format. In this format, users can explore a wide range of laptops, approximately 45-50, within an immersive setting resembling an offline store.
