It all started with Amazon.com starting Amazon.in in India as the sole e-commerce website in India but at that point of time , there were very less number of people who were really buying products from e-commerce.
The entry of Flipkart into to the Indian E-commerce scene again was a turning point which literally started the trend of online shopping.
Flipkart started with Stuart Bansal and Binny Bansal moving on their scooter , delivering books in Bangalore. The were working tirelessly to make their startup work. With the passage of time , Flipkart has become one of the best Indian e-commerce store.
Fun Fact – Stuart Bansal and Binny Bansal were good friends who were working for Amazon before they started their own startup , Flipkart
The journey also saw the rise of another E-commerce giant , Snapdeal started by Kunal Bahl
Apart from all these giants , we have also seen the rise and fall of a lot of other e-commerce stores. Now , as the scenario says , E-Commerce is one of the most profitable(and competitive) platform for a startup. To be honest , e-commerce has really come a long way ahead and the journey is not going to stop.
When the trend of online shopping was gaining popularity, a very less people trusted these sites. Though some Cash On Delivery orders were placed by people , but a very less were prepaid orders and the reason being , they did not trust their money and their card details with websites like Flipkart.
But soon time changed, with super awesome customer support by companies by Flipkart , Snapdeal , Amazon etc. people had started trusting them. That was literally the Magna Carta of E-Commerce in India.
In late 2012 , people had started trusting e-commerce sites but only Flipkart , Amazon, and Snapdeal. They still had no trust and belief on other Indian sites.
Fortunately or unfortunately , those days are long gone and now people can easily trust the newcomers in the E-Commerce market , thanks to their proper service and good customer support.
Now coming to the main topic of this article , here I will be list out some E-Commerce stores you definitely should give a try this year.

Happily Unmarried was anti-established in 2003 with no vision and no business plan. Actually, at some point we did make a business plan but according to that, we should have retired 5 years ago.
We make fun products, we do music festivals, we work with corporates when they want to do interesting work and lately we have been doing a lot of projects involving branding, communication, interiors, marketing all rolled into one (we are trying to think of a name for someone who does all that but no luck yet).
