“Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping.” – Bo Derek
Perfectly said by Bo Derek for all the shopaholics (like me) out there. Shopping! One word and it sweeps you off the floor (and money off your pocket :P). But does it really bother us? No, we still gather up all our courage (and left over money) and hit the next mall with all the pride. Well, this is the story of the previous century where online shopping was not an option.
Our new century, thankfully has made our favorite past time more easy for us by introducing Online Shopping (another idea of an easy perfect weight loss gone for a toss). In the comfort zone of our homes, we can now surf internet, look for what we want, chose and buy with online payment or sometimes Cash on Delivery (COD). Like some of the famous international online shopping websites; Amazon.com and Ebay.com (now in India too), our very own Indian online shopping portals are also gaining a lot of popularity among customers from our Grandpas to our 9 year old nephews.
With personal experience, here I am helping my fellow shoppers to choose from the best Indian Online shopping websites for whatever they desire based on their uniqueness:
- Flipkart.com: One of the top most Online Shopping portals provides you Books, Mobile Phones, Digital Cameras, Laptops, Watches, Clothing, Lifestyle products, Footwear, Kitchen appliances & Other Products. Flipkart offers easy interest-free EMIs options for expensive products so that you can enjoy the latest trends without worrying about the load on your pocket. It gives you 30-day replacement guarantee where you can exchange or cancel your order, in case you are not happy with your product. What makes it special is it was the first online shopping portal in India introducing COD and delivery at the speed of light.
- Fashionandyou.com: One of the most talked about online shopping websites that offers you products like apparels, sunglasses, lingerie, home appliances, home décor, footwear, fragrances, watches, cosmetics and other products. Along with the method of online payment and COD, it makes the online shopping a wonderful experience. Uniquness of this portal is that it gives huge discounts on almost every product (>50%) and the interesting part of this portal is you can earn credit points by inviting your friends to join the website, and use those points to pay for your future buyings. Other online portals falling in this category are www.yepme.com, www.jabong.com, www.myntra.com, etc.
