Online Shopping sites are the ones that allow consumers to directly buy products online from the sellers all over the internet. This is basically a form of e-commerce & can also be called as an e-shop, or an Internet shop or an online store e.t.c. Mobile commerce describes purchasing from an online retailer’s mobile optimized online site or app. I wanted to write a post about online shopping sites in India & I came up with this awesome post covering every aspect & related terms to the main topic.
By the end of June ‘ 2015, India has been found to have an internet user base of 354 million which is second only to China. However, in India online shopping is not preferred as much as it is preferred in USA or France. Cash On Delivery(COD) is the favorite payment option of Indians. For the convenience of Indians, this post was compiled taking a lot of time & research or exploration done by me. I have also listed the best & top 10 online shopping sites in India. Please read it as it can be a manual for you if you want do some smart online shopping as this post clarifies the better deals that online shopping provides in comparison to offline normal practical shopping.
The Market of Online Shopping Sites in India
The market of online shopping sites in India is a huge one. The amount of sales & number of shoppers is growing with time every year in India. By 2020, India is expected to generate $100 billion online retail revenue out of which $35 billion will be through fashion e-commerce. Online apparel sales are set to grow four times in coming years. This has happened due to some points mentioned below :-
- Major part of the population using broadband, 3G & now 4G internet services
- Use of mobile or smartphone technology has grown which has made it easier to shop online with Apps
- Standard of living has also got up
- Great variety of products available online
- Attractive deals provided by these e-commerce companies through blogs like FreeChargeHub
- Usage of online classified sites has also increased in which you can buy & sell directly
Top 10 Best Online Shopping Sites
I checked out many sites to make this list & arrived at this list after checking out some of the conditions present in every website. It was not about how much sales a website has produced but it was about the quality assurance of products, easy exchange policy, timely deals & coupons availability & reach in the remote parts of the country. Keep in mind that I am writing this post after using all the below sites as a consumer & all the words written below are totally original. You can even take them as a review if you want to.
Here is the list of Top 10 Best online shopping sites in India:
This website is the choice for most of the Indian Population. It is because they have a great model working for them. They have a huge products base that can be used widely to shop online. Their payment methods & easy returns policy is also great in nature. I would say that this is is the perfect website to do online shopping. I have purchased all my mobiles online in past few years from the flipkart mobile phones area only as I consider them to be the best in retailing electronics online. They also provide deals & coupons almost everyday & we have a flipkart category for them specifically on our blog. However it also has some posts related to their basic entities. They are very advertised everyday in different mediums like TV, NewsPaper, e.t.c because of the heavy amounts of investments going into them.
It is second best as it has also got a significant market especially because of its tie up with some brands which only provide their products online. However, the con with this website is that it has a very limited reach to the remote parts of the country. They are a worldwide phenomena & are well established e-commerce giant but in India they are still growing up. They also provide deals & coupons for Indians to make use of offers on their platform of online shopping. You can check out these offers in some of the posts published in amazon category on our blog.
This site has a huge customer base & is one of the top 5 e-commerce companies of India but personally I don’t like it that much because of its payment guidelines & not so easy return policy. I don’t prefer to use it but I had to put it in the top 3 only because of its sales. They also provide deals & coupons but they are not promoted separately as a category on our blog. You can search for their deals & coupons on the internet easily as their are many big coupon publishing blogs that provide their offers.
It is an e-wallet service but also provides an online shopping opportunity directly. Its sales amount may not be that huge but only because of its deals, coupons, promo codes & partnership with almost all the merchants for recharge of mobile , DTH, e.t.c & bill payments of service providers (both government & private) in the field of electricity e.t.c. I have placed it at number 4 in my list. This is a revolutionary websites in terms of smart online shopping & recharge tricks.We publish their deal in our paytm category along with general posts about them. We also have a updated paytm promo codes & offers section for their latest deals & coupons every month.
This is an online store of clothing & casual wear. You can check it out for fashion related material. I have placed them here because they are limited in products but their specific categories are just great. I bought few clothing from them & I can say that I am a satisfied user of Myntra.
This one is not that used in India but has a great stand in the world market of online retailers like amazon. Hence, I have placed it here. We also provide deals & coupons related to ebay in our ebay category of posts.
This is quite a different online shopping site for Indians. It has various flea sales & provides various deals too. It claims to be providing a wholesale market experience online. We have a shopclues category for the deal & coupons related to this store.
They are also one of the clothing online shopping sites in India. I bought once from them & I think they have a good range of clothes both for men & women but I place them below Myntra as I think they are not as good as it.
I never purchased from them but have seen their delivery happening across some parts of the country. They sometimes can produce some great deals which can be better than buying from some other online retailer.
They are an old website & also have TV channel to promote their products. My experience is not that great with them but they are good enough to be placed at the bottom of this list.
Importance of these Sites
The only importance of these online shopping sites that I can think of is that they provide a variety of products in their own style & you can choose from those many options & with the best deals on a given day to shop online. Indians are considered as the best shoppers around the world & these sites fulfill their requirements easily either it is online shopping for women who want jewellery, Saree & the best around the place or it is cheap online shopping for the best mobiles or books in the country.
