    Hi There,

    Our website Ohoshop is already listed in SoftwareSuggest. It is SaaS based eCommerce app provider in India. Is there any chance that you provide a top 10 list of eCommerce app platforms?

  2. Vicky says

    Shop2grab are biggest cheats, do not deal with them. They delete all the negative reviews about them as spam. Please do not deal with them; you will lose your money and time.

    With shop2grab.com, its pretty hard to get support from as their is only one person managing this. I’ve not ever a received a call from him, I have to call everytime.

    Never pay them upfront. get everything done before you pay.

  5. kunal says

    i wish to have multi vendor e commerce platform. i searched on many website in india but did not found. many firms are from foreign.. anybody please suggest me for multi vendor platform

    1. Purwaaii says

      Many will come forward to give you service saying that they are multi vendor services . Once you have paid the money they will say they cant do anything because of 3rd party vendors.

    Hi Trak.in, Thank you for mentioning Kartrocket in the Top 10 SaaS eCommerce platforms in India.

      Hi Ankit,
      I want to register a serious mishap by Frekart. They list very high on you ranking. Unfortunately they are a cheat and does not provide even earth after talking moon. They dont provide an SLA and does not support even on trivial issues. Inshort not a great IT support partner. I have registered a case against him in the consumer court also.

  10. ZM says

    Nice list. Good to see new platforms coming up in India. But I would still say Shopify is probably the best one available in India today. If anyone is looking for tips on how to setup an effective store, please view http://www.dotpaisa.com

  11. Creature of the Mind says

    What about PowerStores.in? No SaaS Ecommerce platform list for India can be considered complete without it! It is one of the most efficient ecommerce store builder available in India, even if it is not as well known as it should be…

  12. Ankit Dudhwewala says

    Hi Vivek. Thanks for bringing it to our notice. Will ensure to get shop2grab reviewed from my team.

  13. sudheerpal says

    What about Magento? I think Magento is one of the most preferred eCommerce platform globally. Its first choice for enterprise.

  14. Vivek Singh says

    You forget to include Shop2grab.com offering more features than any other ecommerce platform in india. http://shop2grab.com

  15. Shekhar Narang says

    Do not go with Zepo. It is not worth. We are facing lots of issues. Team is very unprofessional. They do not bother to your queries. Lods of issues keep on coming.

    1. Ajanya Sharma says

      Hi Shekhar, Im using Zepo for my website since Jan and I have recently got a renewal also. There have been one or two issues sometimes but they have replied to my calls very late at night and on off days also many times. Moving from my previous platform has been a good decision so far.

      1. Shekhar Narang says

        Hey Ajanya, we have experienced some different than you.

      Fully agree with you . First they take your money in advance for 6 months and after the money is paid they will make you dance . Sometimes they even block your phone no .
