Here is a list of the best online shopping websites in India…
In this article...
The global online marketing leader is my personal favorite – Amazon. Agree that they might not be as “popular” as Flipkart, but considering my experience with them, they are better than Flipkart in most cases. The better shopping experience, consistency, lesser scams, better customer service, and overall great pleasure.
Flipkart might have gotten the bigger brand but Amazon is a solid contender that I wish will do more better in the future and stand the tests of time. Finding products on Amazon is super easy and checking out is easier! And boy I love their daily deals – always a steal!

Flipkart now has the title of ‘the largest player of e-commerce in India’.

Offers and discounts along with free home delivery for the purchase of goods above a certain amount are another plus point of Flipkart. Another thing about Flipkart is that it never disappoints you. Two thumbs up!
eBay.in is the Indian version of the International online marketplace, ebay.com. One good thing about eBay is that it promotes small businesses and passionate individual businesses as well, as it allows buying products directly from vendors.

Well written! I personally like Flipkart for online shopping.
Best shopping site for gifts
Good Information given because i know only 5 site of shopping website but you give 20 option of website thank you sharing for personal experience
Hello Mr. Mani Karthik,
I read your blog about 20 online shopping sites, I loved it. You genuinely wrote so simply and nice to understand. Thank you for sharing it with us. Keep it up.
The names of the sites you had shared were so useful and helped a lot in buying the best quality product from thee sites. Thanks for sharing such useful information.
Yes, there are so many online shopping sites are available in India. Based on our requirement we need to select the sites, for example, if you wanna buy furniture visit Pepperfry, if you wish to buy groceries visit BigBasket, wish to buy electricals visit Amazon, If you want to buy fashionable clothes then you can buy them from Picknhook.com. You will find both branded and non-branded clothes at a cheap price.
My experience with Snapdeal was horrible. They are audaciously selling duplicate fake products and on complain telling to return. But the selling is continuing. I have got fake Timex watch & indulekha hair oil for lesser price. Really pathetic to see cheaters cheating openly.
I live in us and was also looking to shop online when in India. One major criteria for rating a site I look at is ability to return when needed. Would have been nice if you had evaluated that criteria when looking at these sites.
Recently i checked Virtual2buy.com where we can make your own price as on offer. Probably you could check this
My experience with snapdeal is also not good. I have bought a 26 inch TV (with media play capability) at snapdeal at some time in Nov 2018. They shipped 24 inch TV. I have asked for a replacement. After many follow up, they have agreed to replace the product. Their policy is, I have to ship the product back and then snapdeal will ship the replacement product it seems. I was expecting that they ship the new product and while delivering the right product, they suppose to take back the wrongly shipped product. After me requesting to replace the product, over mail, over phone (alas there is no human interaction, but only IVR and it was bad). Nothing has really materialized. Snapdeal has conveniently closed the case. Really felt sorry for doing a business with a firm not having basic business ethic.
Sounds very real.
There are many Online shopping sites in India, But I like & appreciate
I Have obtained best online shopping experience in “Fabricss” .
I avail free shipping, free cash on delivery, wholesale price & Hassle free service in “Fabricss”
Lot of scam and poor customer service. Overall, really disappointing service.
Why snapdeal.com is Not Recommended ???
Any good reason apart from non branded product .
How can I forget “TataQliq
I’ve mentioned those that aren’t. All of the rest are functional and I keep updating the list every week. 🙂
Some of these websites on this page are non-functional.
Good list you have shared. Here i like to mention my online gifts shop website grandsaves.com
i found many new websites, they are also providing good quality products at low rates like patymmall,styleleak.in. and many more.Styleleak is basically providing only accessories products like wallet,goggles,leather belt and many more. i think many new websites are also good to buy quality products at low price
Hopscotch is a good website for kids and women
Haven’t heard of it. Will try.
You also forgot to mention EyedBlue where anything you can buy for mens fashion.
I’ll check Hema.
I personally like Flipkart and Amazon but you forget to mention Bewakoof.com, Where you get some cool t-shirt stuff for men and women both
Snapdeal is very bad in my opinion. Lot of fake products and vendors.
Me too. I love Amazon.
I am Amazon prime member,it is amazing experience at Amazon
Sure. Me too.
Hi Mani, Really I’m very happy with Amazon service. I am amazon prime member feel great for this.Thank you for posting.
Jabong and Myntra is good while comparing to Snap-deal E bay and Flip Kart..
Good to know Babey. Snapdeal has a lot of issues with shipmen and customer service though.
I WAS LOOKING FOR A PRESTIGE PIC 3.1 V3 INDUCTION COOKER. I DIDN’T FIND IT IN AMAZON. I FOUND IT SNAP DEAL BUT IT WAS PRICEY. BEST DEAL I GOT FROM IS SNAPDEAL…
Well today the competition has grown rapidly as the courier companies have also involved rapidly.
Yes sir, I am Amazon prime member,it is amazing experience at Amazon, Flipkart is average.
That is a tough question to answer. Especially since there are lot of things to consider. I like Amazon comparatively to others though. It might be a personal taste however.
True. I personally prefer Amazon to Flipkart. What about you?
Hi Mani !! Amazon and Flipkart are the real competitors in India… and both are top leading eCommerce websites…
