E-commerce in India

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

India has an internet users base of about 450 million as of July 2017, 40% of the population.[1].[2] Despite being the second-largest userbase in world, only behind China (650 million, 48% of population), the penetration of e-commerce is low compared to markets like the United States (266 million, 84%), or France (54 M, 81%), but is growing at an unprecedented rate, adding around 6 million new entrants every month.[3] The industry consensus is that growth is at an inflection point.[4]

In India, cash on delivery is the most preferred payment method, accumulating 75% of the e-retail activities.[5] Demand for international consumer products (including long-tail items) is growing much faster than in-country supply from authorised distributors and e-commerce offerings.

In 2015, the largest e-commerce companies in India were Flipkart, Snapdeal, Amazon India, and Paytm.[6]
