    Looking for a one-stop solution for everything? Well, that’s what FataFat Sewa is hoping to be. It is an online shopping platform launched marking the new year 2021. With the ongoing pandemic, e-commerce platforms such as Daraz, Sastodeal, Gyapu have seen a surge in their sales. FataFat Sewa looks to be the next big name in Nepal’s e-commerce game. Let’s look at the various services that FataFat Sewa, an online shopping platform is currently offering.

    FataFat Sewa Online Shopping Overview:

    This online shopping platform is currently selling goods ranging from mobile phones, accessories to motorbikes. They have not included the vendor name in any of the listed products. So, that means the platform will be selling the products themselves. Or maybe, because the site is still in its infancy, this is not the final form of FataFat Sewa. Still, it is an added pressure for them, but only time will tell whether it works out or not. Some of the major services being provided by the websites are:

    Free Mobile Insurance

    FataFat Sewa will be providing free insurance on all mobile purchases in accordance with Ajod Insurance’s mobile insurance scheme. The insurance covers you in case of breakage, lost, theft, fire & water damage. And the insurance is of amount NPR 100,000.

    Instant VAT refunds

    Another interesting offer on FataFat Sewa is the VAT refund. So, of the 13% VAT that you are liable to pay on the purchase of any accessories on the platform, you get a 10% tax refund when making an online payment.

    0% EMI service on mobiles, laptops, and other gadgets

    This is one of the salient services being offered by the website. For people who are on a tight budget, this is a great option. You will find the “Apply EMI” tab alongside the Description tab. Simply fill-up the form and apply for EMI. If you have a credit card, you can simply choose your respective bank and fill in other necessary details (including accepting the T&C) to get the product on 0% EMI.

    EMI Fatafat Sewa

    At the time of writing this article, FataFat Sewa has partnered up with the following banks for its EMI service.

    • Century Bank Limited
    • Citizen Bank International Limited
    • Global IME Bank Limited
    • Machhapuchhre Bank Limited
    • Mega Bank Limited
    • Nabil Bank Limited
    • NIC Asia Bank Limited
    • NMB Bank Limited
    • Siddhartha Bank Limited
    • Sunrise Bank Limited

    Even if you don’t own a credit card, you can apply for the 0% EMI service on FataFat Sewa. As I mentioned earlier, the site is still not 100% up to the mark. When selecting “No” under the “Do You Have Credit Card?” menu, it still prompts you to select a bank. This method is rather taxing than the one above (expectedly so), and also requires you to submit different documents like citizenship copy.

    Mobile Exchange Service

    You can also easily exchange your current phone with a brand new one on FataFat Sewa. Simply head to the “Exchange” page and submit the necessary details. This page demonstrates the platform’s infancy as well since the list of to-exchange and to-get phones include other items offered on the platform like gadgets, beverages, and such.

    Mobile Repair, Home delivery, Pickup and Drop Service

    On FataFat Sewa, you can easily request smartphone repair service as well. There’s a list of possible problems with your current phone and you can choose more than one of them that matches your situation. Other helpful services on the platform include home delivery and pickup & drop service.

    FataFat Sewa Online Shopping: Final words

    From the looks of it, FataFat Sewa brings a heap of features that makes one’s aspiration to won a smartphone or other gadgets a lot easier. Features like free insurance, home delivery, pickup, 0% EMI, repair, etc. are definitely the highlighting foundations of the platform. It will still take some time to get the site at 100% efficiency and there’s the promised mobile version to look forward to as well.
