Comparison shopping websites in India

As an online shopper the goal is simple, to get the product at the most economical way. Price comparison websites help you do just that. Now there are many shopping websites in India which offer you to compare prices from different online sites as well as offline stores. The list has 15 sites, first you'll find a summary of these sites then direct links to the sites. So here is an inclusive list of shopping comparison websites:-

CompareIndia.com - This is one of the most famous shopping comparison site for India. The site has a backing of Network 18 group which can be seen by the site design and the professional look and feel. You can compare products from electronics, kitchen appliances to office equipment etc. The site also gives you an option to locate a dealer in your city for a particular product. It has tag based searches, price drop section where you can see what product prices dropped. You can setup an alert for a particular product's price drop as well.

ShopMania.in - This is one of the biggest online shopping comparison sites network. It covers almost 16 countries including India. I think Shopmania.in covers the most online stores for the price comparison in India. It includes sites such as GadgetsGuru, CafeGadgets, Univercell and many more to give the widest range of prices for the products. One good thing about ShopMania is that it allows any merchant to create its own online store for free.

TolMol.com - The site started as a shopping comparison but looks like has diverted its focus to job search as well. It is a startup by Avake Technology, a california based company which was founded by Ramna Sharma and Anuj Kanish. The site has pretty standard features for the comparison, ratings, comments etc. It also carries tag based searches and has categories such as electronics, books, gifts, autos etc. for your online comparison.

PricesBolo.com - This is a bangalore online shopping comparison site. This site covers bangalore, Chennai and Madurai. I like this site. It has nice user interface. You first select the city then category/product. It gives you an option to choose the price range that you are looking for and it will list all the available products from different vendors. Pricesbolo.com is a product of Emmosys Technologies Pvt. Ltd. PricesBolo has an additional advantage for merchants as merchants can list their product and prices, view consumer interests, read reviews and view hot selling brands/products for their marketing strategies. PricesBolo.com uses latest web technologies like AJAX but it lacks in design. I wasn't impressed with the design of the site. I think they can do better with it.

NaapTol.com is the latest entrant in Indian online shopping comparison sites. Site gives you price comparison between different stores (online and offline) and it also gives you an option to compare the products like CompareIndia.com. Taking Offline stores into consideration is a good concept as Indian's mostly buy stuff from a physical location rather than online. PricesBolo.com also has offline store prices listed in their comparison.

OxyShopping.com - This is another shopping comparison site for India but when I search for it in Google, I got this warning message saying that "This site may harm your computer". So looks like there is something going on with OxyShopping.com. I didn't take chance to visit the site so I can't write much about this site.

MySmartPrice.com is one of the best online price comparison engine which let you find the best price of products in Mobiles, Books, Cameras, Electronics, Computers, Appliances and Personal Care products, available across various popular online shopping websites like FlipKart, Infibeam, HomeShop18 etc. in India. MySmartPrice also provides the user with Deals and Coupons making the online shopping more rewarding.

PriceDekho.com you can compare prices of Mobiles, Cameras, Tvs, Laptops, home appliances, books etc. amongst different eCommerce sites or vendors.It gives you an unique option to put a price alert on any product, so that when the price drops to that value, you will be notified by an email.

DiscountPandit.com is a hyperlocal search engine helping users find the best prices on products and the best deals in their neighbourhood. Their algorithm indexes deals from a wide range of sources- daily deal sites, group buying sites, deal aggregators, ecommerce sites, etc.

Above are sites that I know as of now, make a right PICK. If you know any other site I might have missed, please drop me a comment and will include it.
