At a recent townhall, Snapdeal co-founder and CEO Kunal Bahl told employees that the new mission aims to pivot the entire organisation around the number of users transacting daily on its ecosystem (Snapdeal, coupled with acquired entities like Freecharge).

This would be a significant jump from the current over one million transacting users registered through Snapdeal's ecosystem.

"The new vision of '20 million daily transacting users by Year 2020' focuses on driving the number of regular users on its platforms rather than a uni-dimensional focus on GMV alone," he said.

The metric of daily transacting users has been adopted by Snapdeal as it is a good proxy measures of habit creation among its users, he said, adding that it is moving its strategy from customer acquisition alone and becoming a part of the daily life of its users.

Gross merchandise value or the total value of products sold through an e-commerce platform has been one of the metrics of measuring the success of the company.
