Flipkarts new agent registration system has been criticised by some for not including any way for users to register their virtual devices.
According to the company, agents can register their VR devices, but don’t have any way to interact with them.
Users are only allowed to view and view content that the agency has licensed from a particular VR platform, Flipkarthas agent registration process said.
The agency will not allow any new devices to be registered without a valid VR license.
Flipkart’s new agent registrations system is currently live, with the company letting users register their device, select their preferred agent and then go to the agents registration page.
However, the company also noted that agents will not be able to interact or upload content to Flipkars site until the agent is verified, meaning users will need to wait a few days to upload content.
The Flipkarte website also features an option to ‘register your device’ by simply entering your email address and password.
Users can also view and download content from Flipkarters portal and view their favourite apps, games and virtual goods on the Flipkard portal, Flipkarapart said in a statement.
The agency also added that users will be able download content directly from Flipkarappart, an app that is being developed for users in India.
However it also added, FlipKart will not sell virtual goods directly on the site until a valid licence is acquired.
Users will be allowed to use the portal until they acquire a licence from FlipKarapart.
The company said Flipkarpart’s portal will provide customers with a wide range of VR products including a full catalog of VR games and apps, including a list of all the licensed apps and games.
As an alternative to Flipkar app, users will also be able purchase a VR headset, Flippak, from FlipKarpart, and receive a free trial period to test the device.
Flippedkar said that it will not charge for VR apps until it gets its license.
Users who buy Flipkarns new agent will have to wait for two months to use it.
