Online shopping is slowly creeping into India. As of now, a large number of people prefer buying everything from groceries to clothes online. Not so long ago, the Indian audience was wary of shopping online owing to potential thefts etc.
However, that has now changed. Only last year during Diwali, online portals made more profit compared to retail stores. Thus, India has come a long way from being a country of wary online shoppers to a country of millions of happy online shoppers.
There are a large number of online shopping portals out there. However, which one to trust is quite a dilemma.
Here is a list of top 10 online shopping sites in India 2018
This one has to come first hands down. The entire country is completely dependent on Flipkart for nearly all their shopping needs. Flipkart sells everything from gift vouchers to electronics to home appliances. In fact, statistics claim that there are more items on flipkart than in a mall. Hence, Indians are heavily reliant on flipkart for all their shopping needs.
A large number of people from India swear by the services of amazon. Amazon and flipkart are always at war with each other and are always at close heels. Amazon has an equally large number of products as flipkart. In fact, Amazon apparently sells more than flipkart. Since amazon is an American company, it lacks the desi taste that would be preferred by an Indian. It would be wise to indianise its Indian domain. It would then be an instant hit amongst the masses.
Snapdeal is a completely Indian website and is often preferred by the masses for its cheap rates. It sells products at really low prices and hence, is a favourite of the masses. It is a good idea to buy from Snapdeal if you are looking for absolutely cheap prices. However, there have been times when consumers have complained of the products of Snapdeal and hence, some of them stay away from Snapdeal.
Jabong is again an American brand but seems to be doing very well in India. It has a large number of clothes and accessories for sale and is a complete paradise for those who love shopping for clothes. It has all kinds of products from western wear to desi kurtis and it would be fun to sit home and shop for clothes on jabong. Jabong is excessively preferred by women shoppers.
An equally large number of women favour myntra over jabong. Myntra also has a large number of accessories and clothes on its online portal. It has a large number of categories as well and one can buy from a category of their choices. From western to ethnic to traditional, all kinds of clothes are sold on myntra.
This is a website meant for shopping groceries and is a blessing for working women. It is also a blessing for the woman who is busy all the time. All of the grocery items are available over here and one can buy according to their needs. From organic to inorganic items, everything is available over here.
