It has been said that the shopping is one of the best aphrodisiac in life and it is also suggested as a therapy to many. The advent of Internet shopping in India took it to a whole another level owing to the increased convenience and ability to shop from the home. This is the reason why online shopping has become immensely popular in India and it is expected that the number of online shoppers will touch the milestone of 40 million users in 2016. This has lead to a large number of online shopping websites to come up. Here is a list of top 5 apps that are the extension of popular shopping websites in India.
The e-commerce website Flipkart is the top player in the Indian online shopping scenario and rightfully so. Name any category from technology to lifestyle, Flipkart has a large catalog with attractive price. Hence there is no wonder that the website enjoys a rather large user base. This is the reason why the website came up with a free to download app for its users, which is only an extension to the website and allows it to reach a larger audience. The app is pretty easy to use and offers all the features that are provided on the website. However, it comes with an added benefit of tracking an order through notifications, which is quite convenient. Moreover, Flipkart offers exclusive deals and offers to its users, which can be claimed only through the app.
Amazon is the second in line and top rival of Flipkart in India and rightfully so owing to its pretty interface and categories to match. This website has also come up free to download app for smartphones users for easy order placement and and tracking. The app also lets users check all shopping categories, deals of the day and recommendations from Amazon. Once you have placed an order through the app, it will notify all the updates regarding the order through notifications. Also, disregarding whether you have placed the order through the app or desktop, they will all show up in the my orders section in the app. Amazon also comes up with app only deals for its users from time to time.
The Indian online shopping domain, Snapdeal is considered to be the third most popular online shopping destination after Amazon and Flipkart. The highlight of the app is that it not only caters to shopping needs but also provides online payment services like prepaid/postpaid mobile bill payments, electricity bills, gas bills and DTH recharges. This is a big plus for those users who are looking for a one stop solution for all their shopping and payment requirements. Like Amazon and Flipkart, this app also replicated the Snapdeal website and offers easy placement of order with convenient tracking of the same.
When it comes to the online shopping domain, there is no substitute for the oldest and trusted website eBay. This website has made it easier for sellers to register their shops on the website and start selling unlike other e-commerce websites in the industry. eBay also allows its users to hold auction for their products and sell the same to highest bidder. Also, eBay also happens to be home to many unique and rare products that are not available anywhere else. All these features are available in its free to download app and is a must have for any online shopper.
Originally an online bills payment merchant, Paytm expanded its horizon and further delved into online shopping as well. Today, the website has a catalog that is as good as any other e-commerce website and also offers its initial services including online recharges and bill payment. What sets it apart from other merchants is that it offers cashbacks on almost every purchase, which are added to the Paytm Wallet. This can then be used for any other retail outlet that accepts Paytm wallet. The huge popularity of the app can be credited to this one factor.
With a handful of apps to choose from, sometimes it gets confusing for the users whether to shop from this or that app. What they need is something like PriceRaja app, which would show them the price listed on all above websites and show you the best available apps. It also has a comprehensive deals and coupons section, which is worth checking out. It makes sense to have an app like this when there are no app exclusive offers being offered by these e-commerce websites.
