About the company

Zopper is a hyperlocal marketplace which helps consumers to find products and check offline prices. Zopper lets users search for products across categories and check prices and place an order from nearby stores. Zopper Assure extended warranty covers all the manufacturing defects including hardware and electronic failures during the period of coverage. Essentially, it replicates the manufacturer’s warranty for an extended period of time apart from offering an extensive add-on coverage such as replacement of accessories like remotes, cost of services lost due to product failure (eg. D2H charges etc.).
