Earlier this month, Snapdeal announced the acquisition of technology platform Wishpicker.com that offers users gift options based on intelligent recommendations. The company, however, did not reveal financial details.

Bansal said that as consumer buying trends are evolving, intelligent recommendations will be one of the key drivers for business volume for sellers. This is the fifth acquisition by Snapdeal, the statement said. Earlier this year Snapdeal had acquired Doozton.com, a social product discovery technology platform, focused on the fashion and lifestyle categories.
