Online retail in India is growing at an amazing pace. There are just so many online stores to choose from that a buyer gets confused as to what is the better website, where to buy a product from and what website would give the best deal. Usually a buyer would pick one or two preferred store and stick to them. They will buy the product from the website that lists it at a lower rate and offers better shipping policy. But is that efficient? No, it is not.
