E-commerce has been steadily rising in India. The acquisition of Flipkart by Walmart and steady expansion by Amazon has been due to the enormous nascent market which is as yet unexploited. From a mere 10 million users of e-commerce in 2012 it has swelled by 800% till the end of 2018. It has taken time for the different business to understand what suits the Indian marketplace and the shakeout has seen smaller players like Myntra being acquired by Flipkart or fall by the wayside as has happened with Snapdeal.

The new trend of e-commerce after retail and travel has moved online is for mega-pharmacies to emerge online offering huge discounts and cashback to the tune of 25% (brick and mortar pharmacies rarely offer an actual discount of more than 14%) and health checkup packages from renowned laboratories at 80% discount to market price. Moreover, you can easily get any advice from the doctor using 1mg Coupon Codes offer.
