Anshoo Sharma, CEO and Co-founder, Magicpin, said: “The investment from Samsung Venture Investment Corporation will be used in our operations across cities, markets, categories, and for developing online products like magicstore.”
Magicpin also said it will charge 'zero commission' on sales of retailers that will onboard its 'magicstore' platform.
