At Driffle, we offer immediate digital delivery of our products along with streamlined payment procedures, eliminating the challenges of payment fraud and international shipping, said Bhardwaj.
Users can purchase these games on the market using their preferred payment methods, such as UPI in India and local currencies. Driffle said that the marketplace is currently accessible in more than a hundred nations, including South East Asia and Europe, and accepts more than a hundred different currencies. According to the firm, clients receive the games digitally in less than 10 seconds.
The Driffle team has found a significant gap inside the gaming industry because it is a startup founded by gamers. The team is addressing the consumer experience for purchasing digital items, which has not yet been worked upon, with their intense passion for problem-solving, Anirudh Garg, a Beenext investor, remarked.
