• Minte Home Flagship
Accelerating electronics purchase

India buys around 2.5 Cr smart phones every month. This means as many phones are recirculated into the system every month, either through formal or informal channels. There is less sentimental attachment towards a used phone these days. The reverse supply ecosystem requires strong partners to accept and move the used phones. Minte is one of the pioneers in this space. We buy used electronics from businesses thereby powering the acceleration of new electronics purchases

Powering aspirations

Electronics, more particularly mobile phones, have become essential to almost every individual today. Aspirational value and brand alignment is taking over, with the number of upgrade cycles a customer has already gone through. India still is a very price sensitive market - this combined with aspirational value, provides a sustainable business for players in this space. We sell used electronics to wholesalers, retailers and consumers thereby powering their aspirations

Driving with technology

Trading in used goods is tricky. We understand we are dealing with products that have depreciating value and that the replacements are more advanced. Hence we pump in our expertise and experience into technology backed applications to make our business and operations sustainable. Minte today has proprietary applications for buy, process, sell, price discovery, diagnosis, etc. We build applications for use across used goods space
