2014 year has been a blockbuster year for e-commerce companies in India. Billions of dollars flowed into the e-commerce sector as India is estimated to have surpassed the US in having the highest number of internet users after China
If a seller were to set up your own shop it requires huge investment and real estate cost is very high in India along with employing multiples, maintainence etc all this cose is just dumped on the customer easily. Going online is the easiest way to reach out to many customers across India, Online sites makes money by charging a marketing fee on every sale from its platform. It does not charge an upfront fee to sellers. Onlin store controls the delivery part by having tie-ups from third-party logistics service providers, who pick up the products from the sellers.
So go online and save in thousands rather than the offline route where you pay atleast 20% more than the online cost..
STAY SMART... SHOP SMART...
