ShopClues is one of the largest online marketplaces in the world. It has millions of products, multiple mentions in mass media, and a bunch of awards.
ShopClues is one of the largest online marketplaces not only in India but also worldwide. It counts 53,000,000 SKUs, withstands a huge traffic, and it still works pretty fast.
This marketplace offers a wide range of electronics, apparel, jewelry, accessories, car products, kid’s products, hobby and travel goods, and much more. Literally speaking, this is eBay for India.
ShopClues is India’s first and the largest fully managed marketplace that connects buyers and sellers online and offers a trusted and safe online shopping experience. ShopClues is among the fastest growing e-commerce destinations in India. More than 7 million people visit ShopClues every month.
Starting from 2011, this marketplace has been able to rapidly widen its consumer reach and business. Now, ShopClues counts 500,000 vendors and this number grows. Fascinating, isn’t it?
ShopClues began as a startup launched by an Indian entrepreneur Sandeep Aggarwal. It was the first online store in India working by the “managed marketplace” model. It’s when a small team manages the whole marketplace, invites vendors, and controls their activities. And customers buy products directly from the invited vendors. In 2011, these guys started from 500 vendors and now this number is thousand times bigger.
Of course, mass media noticed such a large online marketplace. ShopClues featured in lots of online magazines such as Indian Express, The Financial Express, Business Standard, and more. In 2016, they got there high awards: APAC Effie, CMO Asia Awards, and CEO India Awards. This is the only online marketplace from India that’s presented in Wikipedia!
