Myntra to scrape website from May 1


Mumbai: Transforming into a mobile-only entity as internet usage over smartphones surges in India, online fashion retailer ‘Myntra’ will shut its website from May 1, and will become only a mobile app-based retailer.

Myntra may look to phase out its web presence sometime during this year. However, the decision to shutter the site has been advanced, said sources, who did not want to be named. Flipkart, which acquired Myntra a year ago, may also follow suit if the experiment goes down well.
