Top and cheap online shopping sites for middle class Indians

The craze for online shopping in India is growing day by day and there are lot of online shops opening everyday like a mushroom during rain. Every site has its own pros and cons and I here is the classification of the various online shopping sites in India based on their performance with a particular kind of product. Customer service, return policy, product quality and delivery of shipment were considered to segregate the best.

In India 50 million people fall under the middle class category. I too belong to the same category of people and I understand the expectation of a common middle class men when shopping something wither online or directly in shop. One peculiar character with middle class men is that to purchase everything within budget we prefer different shops to buy different products. Some groceries we will buy in a super market and for few other things we will prefer the road side shop. The ultimate thing for us is that the product has to up to the value of the money. Understanding the expectation of this larger section of people I have come out with a piece of information about various online shopping sites in India and its special features from my own experience.

Flipkart: Best online shopping site to buy books

Flipkart.comI would rate Flipkart as the best online shopping site to buy books. The first and foremost reason is that wide ranges of books are available particularly when it comes with fiction or non-fiction. Every book for sale is accompanied with description about the book and specifications about the publisher. Every buyer has the option to review the book which in turn helps the new buyers to decide whether to buy or not. I never tried to contact customer service as I never faced any problems with Flipkart. Usually it takes 3 to 4 working days for the book to reach and every book is perfectly packed and sent to us. They also give us the option to wrap gift cover if we wish to gift the book to someone. Over all Flipkart is the best for books from my own experience and they also provide great discount when compared to other sites.
Other sites where I purchased books
Apart from Flipkart, I purchased once with Infibeam and ebay. Infibeam was perfect in everything, but delivery was bit late and in eBay I got the money refund saying that the book is out of stock after I ordered. I lost a discount coupon too in eBay during the purchase.

Tradus and Infibeam: Cheap online site to buy mobiles

TradusInfibeam.comI recently referred one of my friends to buy Samsung Galaxy S Duos smartphone from Tradus. The exact reason is that it gives at a cheaper cost when compared to other sites. Here is the cost of the Samsung Galaxy S duos in various online shopping sites in India.
  • Tradus – Rs. 14125

  • Infibeam – Rs.14155

  • Flipkart – Rs.14900

  • Yebhi – Rs.14900

  • ebay – Rs. 15490 (lowest bidder)

  • Though I did not buy in Infibeam, I have read that Infibeam too is good when it comes with mobiles and tablets. I would rate Tradus as the cheapest and Infibeam as next to it. However when it comes to delivery Flipkart is faster, but the cost is slightly higher always when it comes to mobiles.

    Yebhi and Jabong: Best online shopping site for wide range of clothing

    Jabong.comYebhiFrom my experience Yebhi and Jabong are having the wide range of clothing for both men and women. Almost all top brands are listed and are available at a decent price as that of factory outlets. I purchased a Basics shirt from Jabong and its cost is almost same as that in outlet, with free shopping my travel cost and time was saved. Both the sites have cash on delivery, return policy and 24 hour customer service.

    Healthkart: Best online shopping site to buy health products

    HealthkartHealth kart is the best site that I have seen which is dealing with health products totally. It has 14 day return policy and 24x7 customer service. I purchased some body care products and I got a good deal indeed. I personally felt that it is the cheaper in health related online shopping site.

    ebay: Best in the rest

    ebay.comebay in general is the one of the best site. The one best feature is that it doesn't say no when searched for a product and they give incredible discount and coupons. The only drawback is that one has to believe the dealer just with the feedback score and brand name and delivery changes from person to person. But overall its mega store where everything is available. So if you don't get something in any of the above sites, you would definitely get it in ebay.
