It’s In The Bag—Find Great Deals Instantly| Online Shopping Trends in India |


The shopping landscape has changed so drastically over the last decade, from how to shop, to new merchandise now available at your fingertips, and it’s only going to get better! The shifting landscape, from on site to online—bricks to clicks—has been more like a landslide. Chances are you’ve had a front row seat to this change, and noticed it in your own habits as well.  If you’re an early adopter, it’s possible that your mobile phone is your go-to device to find everything from a restaurant for your date this weekend, to ordering the Abercrombie and Fitch shirt that you plan on dazzling your companion with. You are fortunate enough to live in a country where the Internet is infiltrating at a galloping pace, and the speed of it is second-to-none, according to the site EFYTimes.
 
 

Who’s Shopping Online?

According to a Google India Reporter, three factors are driving online shopping: Commuters, those living in a remote area (non metros), and mobile phones.  If you’ve used your mobile phone or PC to check out shopping sites, to subscribe to their emails and connect with them on your favorite social sites (Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are really great for sharing items) then you’re among the growing number of Indians who are discovering how ecommerce stores are helping to simplify their lives.  Now that the Internet has gained a saturation point, as well as mobile phones (which have passed up PCs, by the way), the Internet is becoming the shopping destination of choice.  With improved shopping tools, allowing you to zoom into a product and see how it looks from many angles, online shopping is becoming easier and actually more fun, as you can do it without the pressure of a sales associate and on your own time.  Plus, most online stores have the same product for a lower price than a brick and mortar retail site, according to the website Compete. 

Everything is coming up roses:  if you’re like most people, you’re experiencing an improved standard of living and you have more money to spend than ever before.  You require a high quality product, and you demand a certain level of customer service. The questions are, then, how do these demands translate to shopping online?  How can you guarantee that the fine product you’re looking at online is the product that you receive, and that your high expectations for being taken care as a customer are met?

Great Quality Products

One particular brand of ecommerce site, the Flash Sale, is especially popular among Indians, and for good reason says Forbes online.  Well known Flash Sale sites, , work with top tier brands to bring merchandise to the public at rock bottom prices, so you can purchase high quality products for yourself and your family without breaking the bank, they also come up with offers such as deal of the day in India to provide customers with added discounts on a daily basis. They’re also a great place to discover new brands, restaurants, fun activities and new fashion trends.  A Compete survey states that 54.3% of shoppers said they would use a flash sale website as a tool when shopping.

Top Notch User Experience

Great quality products are essential, as is having the best customer service and user experience.  The early adopters are very discerning and another website is just a click away, so it’s important that the site has a masterful, intuitive flow and that the customer service is truly customer-centric.  On the other side of the early adopters are those new to the Internet who may have a fear of ordering online because it’s a very different experience from going to a retail store and picking out the exact merchandise you’re going to buy.  To ensure happy customers it’s important that what you get is what you ordered.  This also reinforces confidence in ordering more products online, and also increasing the total sale price. Many sites have common complaints about shipping, logging in and customer service; all of which should be corrected so they don’t impede establishing a strong foothold with your growing customer base. 

As you continue to return to a retail site, do they act like they know you, much like the retailer down the road?  Are they familiar with your past purchases and can make recommendations because they know what you like?  Look for these things.  Chances are, a first class retailer will offer promotions that are very specific to your needs.  If they’re doing their job, they’re aware of how valuable of a customer you are and what your preferences are, even if you haven’t explicitly told them so, your past purchases should be an indication.

Going Mobile

If you’ve fallen in love with a site and want to go steady, then download the app, as they’re typically free. Generally, once you have the app on your phone the site will send you alerts to special sales and other valuable information.  For instance, for a Flash Sale site, chances are you’ll receive notification before a sale starts and which brands are available.  As your loyalty increases, chances are you’ll move up to first tier status and have access to the sale before the general public.  How great is that?  Of course, once you receive the notification, you can decide if it’s a brand and/or product that you’re in the market for and make plans to scroll the site once the sale goes live.  If it’s not something that interests you today, you know that you’re on their list for an update tomorrow; you don’t have to remember to go to the site and check.  With our busy lives, this is a valuable daily update!

Why Shop Daily Deals?

Are you a frugal shopper or a fashionista?  There are so many flash sales, you’ll definitely find one that meets your personality type.  And chances are you may be a frugal shopper for one item type, such as home goods, but willing to pay more for a certain item, such as an A&F shirt for a gift. Online daily deals are not an event that you have to plan for, like weekly grocery shopping; you can peruse the site at your convenience and build it into your otherwise busy day.
