Tyroo & Nazara to enable e-commerce in mobile games

MUMBAI: Tyroo Technologies, today, announced its partnership with India’s leading mobile game publisher and developer Nazara Games, to power their mobile game ‘Nazara Cricket’; riding on the cricket fever in India with the upcoming World Cup T20. Through this partnership, gamers soak on the spirit of cricket as well as get a chance to shop for their favorite merchandise and avail special e-commerce deals while staying within Nazara Cricket’s app. Going forward, Tyroo will also be powering all other mobile games of Nazara, including the crowd favorites like Chhota Bheem Race Game, Cut the Rope: Magic and Virat Cricket etc.

It is a major leap in mobile game monetization as Nazara moves beyond interruptive advertising. Nazara will now offer contextual and personal experience to the consumer. In this first of a kind gaming integration, high-affinity products will be curated to the gaming users using Tyroo’s Native Commerce Ad platform. Tyroo’s Native Commerce Platform can curate from more than 20 million SKUs across e-Commerce brands today. On the basis of customer preferences and insights obtained from Nazara, Tyroo will offer relevant products to gamers.

Speaking about the partnership, Siddharth Puri, CEO, Tyroo Technologies, said “The mobile gaming industry in India is poised to grow exponentially with the unprecedented rise of mobile-first population and Internet penetration. While our first phase was about digital commerce influencing customer choices by capturing their decisions, our objective now is to have a destination-less shopping experience. Nazara has always remained ahead of the innovation curve and this initiative to create a consumer to product relationship with enriched data will definitely help influence, engage and convert audiences into actual paying customers.”

Commenting on the partnership, Manish Agarwal, CEO, Nazara Technologies said, “Nazara’s IP based games have a huge fan following. IP based gaming builds a highly engaged community with context of gaming and we are offering a great opportunity to e-commerce companies to showcase their relevant merchandise to the millions of engaged fan boys/girls of the IP. This association with Tyroo will allow us to offer gamers on the Nazara network a very contextual shopping experience without interfering in the core game play.”

Tyroo’s Native Product Ads technology has been developed keeping consumers at the epicenter of the mobile advertising ecosystem. While other e-commerce ads overwhelm and confuse a consumer by showing different products to choose from, Native Product Ads only show relevant products as per consumer interest, reducing their efforts of buying products online.

Native Product Ads technology allows different formats for app developers based on their mobile app design, font and layout and drive purchase via Product Discovery. It also enables advertisers to monitor native product ad performance through an in-built dashboard and accordingly use product analytics to create more engaging content for the audiences.
