    Yes, you can buy products from Indiatimes online shopping but you need to choose the branded products from their list. It is a genuine site and from Times of India group initiative.

    Indiatimes used to sell few unbranded attractive products as well which can look good at instance whereas disappointment at the final or upon its delivery. However, you can buy any product with the condition of COD (Cash on delivery) method to know the real picture of the products.

    Some of the products showing online is different than upon its delivery. Make sure you cross check the product detail, image detail, overall specification or configuration or content, size or weight, comparison the product and price prior to its order.

    This is an era of online shopping and because of it's demand a lot of fake websites / online sellers entered the market. Most of the pioneer online shopping websites are trust worthy and 100% scam proof.,, Snapdeal, Myntra, Amazon etc are trusted sites.

    Small and new online shopping websites such as rediff, indiatimes shopping etc are introduced to the market. Indiatimes shopping is a branch of Times of India which gave more trust feeling for this website. But from my experience it is not that much safe. One of my article in Techulator Review of IndiaTimes Online shopping also shows that most of the buyers are not satisfied with their service.

    Negative sides of Indiatimes Shopping : The lack of toll free customer care phone number is the main disadvantage of this website. They don't even have a paid customer care number. You have to mail them regarding any complaint and it may take several days to recieve a reply from them. Another problem is scam. Most of the sellers in this website are scammers and because of that you may loose your money. One of my neighbours purchased an item from this website and paid via netbanking and the item isn't shipped even after the expected date of delivery. So, you have to be very careful while purchasing online from an un-reputed website.

    How to buy safely from Indiatimes Shopping : There is only one way but limited for a safe transaction through this website. Always use Cash On Delivery (COD) when purchasing from Indiatimes Shopping and always read the discription and product name carefuly. You may see products at cheap rates which are similar to any branded product and looks identical. But always make sure that the company name is included in it's name.

    Indiatimes shopping is a genuine online shopping website. I had personally purchased a mobile phone (Xolo Q700) from Indiatimes shopping last year and received a phone call from them when the product was ready for dispatch. It is true that they take additional time to deliver products at our home address (or office address), but, they do deliver quality stuff that is brand new. The only thing you need to make sure while buying online stuff from this site is to purchase only branded products and do not go for any cheap unbranded products.

    Indiatimes shopping also allowed me to use a discount voucher code while shopping from them. I even managed to get some cashback as I went to their website through cashback site My family member is still using that mobile phone without any problems. So, from my experience, I can say that Indiatimes shopping is a good e-commerce website for buying online stuff at discounted prices. It does allow you to save plenty of money.

    Indiatimes shopping is a genuine online shopping website owned by reputed business group, The Times of India group.

    I think it's better to try out their services themselves before commenting on it. I had bought a product from them long ago and it was delivered in perfect condition in the stipulated delivery time.

    I would suggest you to give them a try. You can use cash on delivery option for doing payments for the good purchased by you.
