Flipkart is the best online shopping store for purchasing books and electronics. It has a huge collection of books spread across various categories. They offer the best deals on books than any other online store present on the web. Though it started as an online book store, it has emerged big by widening its platform across different products such as Mobile Phones, accessories, Cameras, Computers and Home Appliances. Most of the people call it as Amazon of India. One of the reasons for it could be that Flipkart was founded by two IIT,Delhistudents, who previously worked for Amazon.com, the largest online shopping store in the world.
I am a big personal fan of Flipkart purely for the deals they offer and the services they provide, which is of the highest class.
