Online shopping in India has boomed in recent years. The wide distribution of smart phones and high speed internet access combined with a large and expanding middle class has contributed to online commerce growth.
These days, people often don’t have the time to visit multiple bricks and mortar shops for a great looking dress or the best jeans bargain. Instead of spending hours shopping in bazaars, markets and shopping centres, locals can now compare and buy online within minutes.
With many crores of potential customers, international e-commerce giants Amazon and eBay compete with Indian shopping brands Flipkart, Snapdeal, Jabong and Myntra in retail sectors including:
- Fashion and Footwear
- Health and Beauty
- Home Electrical
- Office Supplies
- Pet Supplies
With more people every day coming online and developing e-commerce habits, India is rapidly becoming a major internet shopping force.
