Top 20 Online Shopping Sites in India

Online shopping in India has become a way of life. Now, people across the country want to shop online rather going to their local market. Over the past 5 years many websites have come up on the Internet but only few of them were able to continue for a long time. If you want to shop online then I recommend top 20 shopping sites in India which are very popular among consumers. Top Online Shopping Sites in India I had an experience of going and purchasing from all the 20 online shopping sites mentioned below. According to my personal experience you can trust them and buy whatever you like. They have easy to use interface where buying a product and online transaction is very easy. They are following

1. Indiatimes Shopping

The most popular website to go for shopping is Indiatimes Shopping. This site is one place junction where you can buy almost everything. I personally bought accessories like clothes, shoes and jewelry from here & satisfied with their service. Alexa Rank in India is 9.

2. Flipkart

In past few years Flipkart has emerged as second largest shopping site in India. I have used Flipkart for buying certain goods like few watches and a camera. There are number of ways to make payment on this website. One of the most widely used method is COD (cash on deliver) where you can pay at the time of delivery. But this is not limited to Flipkart only. Now a days all the companies offer COD facility. Moreover, Flipkart user interface is also good as it makes choosing products easier.

There are dozens of websites places on internet where you can find valid & working coupons for Flipkart & even for other shopping sites. This way you can save some money on every purchase.

3. eBay India

As we all know eBay India is not an Indian company but still very popular in India as it is third most preferred site for shopping. Earlier it was known as Baazee.com but after eBay acquired Baazee for Rs. 200 Crore in 2004, its name changed to eBay.in. I had a very good experience as a seller on Baazee & I was a seller there for almost 2 years but after the acquisition of Baazee, I moved on to my new business i.e internet marketing. Products that eBay has to offer are tremendous. You can go to the website and choose almost anything. eBay has a very good buyer protection policy. If you feel even 1% problem in the product, you can ask for the refund & you will get your money with in 2-4 days. Alexa Rank in India is 27

4. Snapdeal

This online mall is really good for accessories like perfumes, jewelry and other accessories related to them. I used Snapdeal coupons for eating out in my favorite restaurant. It is fourth popular website in India and growing very rapidly. According to me, this site is good for getting coupons for restaurants and other food joints. Alexa Rank in India is 42

5. Myntra

Myntra targets mainly apparels which are casual as well as formal. This site is particularly good for men’s and women’s clothing. Although it offers for kids also but people like to buy for adults only. Shipping is also good but it could be much better. I shopped only once with this website. Alexa Rank in India is 49

6. Sulekha

Sulekha is also a good shopping site if you are looking out for properties to buy in your city. Buying, selling and renting of properties could be easily done at Sulkeha. It offers other services like mobile, health, travel and education but for me if you are looking out for a property to buy and sell then go to this site. Alexa Rank in India is 52

7. Tradus

Tradus is also a great site to shop if you want to buy accessories like clothes, shoes, mobile etc. If you want then you can sell certain items also. Alexa Rank in India is 64

8. Homeshop18

You might have seen infomercials of Homeshop18 on your television set. Basically, Homeshop18 is a great site if you want to buy home appliances like mixer, grinders, ovens, refrigerators, AC etc. It is the perfect site for these products. Prices are very low compared to your local shop. So you can buy home appliances from this site. Alexa Rank in India is 71

9. Shopclues

Shopclues also offers wide range of products. If you learn from my experience then the site is good for products which are of low price. Do not go for highly priced products. Alexa Rank in India is 93.

10. Yebhi

Yebhi is a great site for apparels. You can choose apparels from wide range of brands. You could also look for accessories like watches, shoes, bags etc. Alexa Rank in India is 99.

11. Junglee

For me Junglee is a great shopping site for electronics goods and home appliances. It is also great for books if you want to buy. This site is not good for buying clothes and other accessories. Alexa Rank in India is 106.

12. Infibeam

At Infibeam, I only shop books and magazines. You could find many great books and magazines which are not available in the market. You could also buy mobile but still I prefer purchasing books and magazines. Alexa Rank in India is 160.

13. Pepperfry

Pepperfry has some great household items like furniture, kitchen & dining and appliances. Few months back I ordered a dining table from this site. The price was OK and I was able to choose a design of my choice. Alexa Rank in India is 349.

14. InkFruit

Go to this site for buying only apparels which are casual. I purchased a pair of denim jeans from this site. InkFruit is only good for apparels only. Alexa Rank in India is 379.

15. First Cry

As the name suggest this shopping site in only popular for babies. If you have a baby or a new born in your home then you could buy almost anything from First Cry. Best price, cash on delivery and fast delivery is some of the salient features of this particular shopping site. Alexa Rank in India is 456.

16. Fashionara

Fashionara is really great for women. Men could also buy certain apparels but this shopping site appeals more to women. Again you could buy clothes, footwear, gifts and other accessories. Alexa Rank in India is 673.

17. Good Life

Good life caters household items and home appliances. But I prefer to buy only food items from this site. But if you want to buy a sofa, a bed or a table then go to Good life. You can buy products for your kitchen also. Alexa Rank in India is 683.

18. Baby Oye

Baby Oye is second best shopping site for newborns after First cry. If you do not find certain items at First cry then you could go at Baby Oye. You can find wide range of products catering to newborns. Alexa Rank in India is 749.

19. Shoppers Stop

Shoppers stop is a good shopping site if you are looking to buy clothes. It offers variety of products but only good at apparels. You could try certain accessories as well. Alexa Rank in India is 918.

20. Be Stylish

I bought a pair of shoes from Be Stylish a month ago. It was Ok but still not that good. If you don’t like shopping sites mentioned above then you can go to Be Stylish. Alexa Rank in India is 928. There are many other emerging players in this market. You can also check some other great shopping sites like Jabong, SeventyMM, BigBasket, Koovs, Masticart, GoIndiaOrganic etc. Finally, I would like to say all the websites mentioned above have some great qualities in them. If you do not find something in one shopping site then you can choose to purchase from others. I have mentioned a specialty of a particular shopping site. I mean for what all products a shopping site is good. Out of 20 you can choose a particular site that has best products to offer. It is not necessary that you will find every great product at one single site. Therefore each site has some specialty and you can shop according to it.

    Hi Priya,
    Thanks for the information. I also tried my luck in Snapdeal shopping. I bought a mobile of Micromax company but unfortunately it worked for few months only. So I don’t believe in online shopping anymore.

    I recently ordered a Kitchen Item from one among your listed supplier,When they came home,They would’nt let u see the product before paying them the cash at the door step,This is rediculous how does one pay without checking weather it the same item u have ordered.And if at the item is not the one u have ordered,They refuse to give the money back saying that u speak to the one through whom u have ordered.This has Discouraged me from Online Shopping.

      Hi George,
      As this is delivered through a courier company, you won’t be allowed to open that. But if you purchase the product from a reputed shopping site like mentioned above, there won’t be any issue of returning.
      My experience with most of the above site is that very good when it comes to returning the product. you just have to pack the product properly & they send the courier person to take your product back & return your amount back to your account.

    Dear Priyaji,
    Thanks for the information about the shopping sites. I hope this would remove the age old belief that we wshould buy things only after physically see them. I have bought some items from two or three from your list. Sometimes you may get disappointed. But usually, many sites are genuine and you can trust as you siggest.. Thanks.
    Regards,
    urs PTS

    Priya Madam,
    I know and also used only two sites flipkart and ebay.
    I have used them to buy electronic accessories and shoes on COD.
    Mostly I use them for variety, quality and price research work on commodities
    before I buy them locally. Just to have a hazzle free
    purchase eg: returning due to wrong selection or wrong item delivery.
    (not the prefered size, material & so on).
    I also bought my car on this basis.
    Very informative and thank you for sharing valuable experiences.
    Regards

    Hi there !
    Internet shopping is cheaper compared to shopping in fabulous shopping malls. I have a good experience with Snapdeal.com, Goodlife.com & Indiatimes Shopping. However, some time ill luck may have the upper hand.
