The idea behind Wifi Dabba
Behind WiFi Dabba, there is a case study related to sachet pricing says Shubhendu Sharma, co-founder and COO of Wifi Dabba. In that case study, the company was not able to sell 100ml bottles so it made these small Re. 1 sachets. Taking cue from this, small sachets for internet have been made.
