They are the ones who built trust on online shopping experience. Sadly they are no more in the market.

Most of the chor sellers have sifted to Myntra now. If this continues, very soon myntra will join this list of dead site.

Customer ‘unfriendly’ support is responsible for mushrooming of chor sellers in a site leading to angry buyers and loss of trust in the site.

Was frequent buyer on inkfruit but it got shut and was acquired by zovi, Homeshop18’s Superdeals were awesome, bought many things from them, Yebhi shined in those days but the buzz was short lived, also pepperfry in those days use to list electronics products, apparels etc before turning into full fledged furniture store pepperfry use to provide many coupons, then there was one called Greendust for refurbished products… good old days

infibeam too.
though infibeam e-commerce business stopped but its CCAvenues running.

Currently no e-commerce company is in profit. so it is difficult to survive for small players.

These websites are victims of free market because they had nothing to attract repeat customers.

Nice thread, nice memories.

Ebay: Cheap Chinese TAT

Indiatimes/Rediff Shopping: Horribly bad knockoffs

Infibeam: Good books. Electronics deals were good.
Bought a 0.5MP webcam that would make Katrina Kaif look like a beggar.

Jabong: Okay, nothing special

Pepperfry: LEDs, Power Sockets and many many things at a great discount when they were a marketplace

Paytmmall: Incredible deals before Buffett invested. Plenty of 90% cashback deals.

Bought a TV for 850. Couldn’t sleep well at night with excitement. It turned out to be a toy.

…I have utmost respect for these startups….they burned their pocket to gave us good deals…

….many guys can counter this with claims like funding etc but it takes guts to burn money to increase business….a salaried guy will never understand the pain of doing business…

…I have nothing but fond memories and love to see them back in any which way…

Nice memories indeed smile

Before Ebay, there was Baazee.com where I shopped for the first time (2002, I think). Baazee was acquired by ebay.

From India times, I purchased my first “Smart Phone” .. i.e. Cingular 8125 .. It was 2006, I think.

… still have this phone with box smile
