The top-notch, leading online shopping app in India, Amazon, undoubtedly has a large collection of not only branded apparel but its collection. The prices are never seen before in any other online shopping apps in India.

It offers a long list of features including easy return, order tracking, hassle-free payment, and two different paying method.
And to get even better services, Amazon has launched Amazon Prime which adds charm to the already feature-loaded app. The Amazon Prime member gets super fast delivery, sometimes within 3 hours, you will have your order in hand, and many discounts offers too.
The second on our list is Flipkart which can give tight competition to Amazon. The app offers anything to everything, it has electronics, books, fashion, furniture, toys, decor, personal care, and many more.
The app does not have fancy bells and whistles so it is not hard at all to find the right product swiftly. You can also search according to prices, colors, sizes, and even brands. Crystal clear descriptions are available under the product.

Cash on delivery or online payment? The decision is yours. And you can not miss special offers that Flipkart members are entitled to. The customer’s services have drastically changed from what they used to be.
Moving on next I have here Myntra. When it comes to popular shops not considering Myntra would be unfair to the brand and its long-lasting customers. The price that you will get here for apparel can not be seen in any other apps.
The app has trending fashion and is a house to many brands so variety is guaranteed in the app. The app is pretty intuitive and you can easily find what you are looking for with its picture-capturing feature.

The app is commonplace for both Indian ethnic fashion as well as western culture fashion. There is nothing that Ajio can not provide you, be it clothing, footwear, accessories, apparel, almost anything, and everything.
However top selling of Ajio is its indie collection that the audience seems to like too much. If you are just window shopping then you can add the product to the cart for later purchases. It’s a safe platform and there is no hassle in checkouts.
And the app has a tracking option so that their customers can see the status of their order. And what I love the most about Ajio is that you can easily return the product within a month of delivery.
6. Shein – The Hottest Trends & Fashion
The 2008 launch and new jersey based branched, Shein has made a place on the heart of Indian citizens in a very short time and all due to it being a brilliant online shopping app. The app has a large collection of trendy western clothes.
It is a nice destination for fashion icons who will love to have a splash of color in their swimwear, along with flowy dresses with bright flowers. It is one of the places that offer not only western clothing but also modest apparel.
The app has an artistic tint to the interface and is initiative in the sense that they have all sizes models so that it does not work around certain physiques, and how can you leave the site without actually looking through men’s and kid’s collections.
7. Paytm mall
Paytm has also stepped into the field of online shopping with a brand called Paytm Mall and is considered the best among others. The rates that you will see here won’t make your bank crept so that is a plus point.
The app is a one-stop destination shop so that you won’t waste time finding the right destination as the app provides you with everything to anything. Be it electronics, garments, daily necessities, toys, groceries, baby care, or any more such things.

The place has so much to offer and so much to look put for. The deals are awesome as well as rates on some of the products. Nykaa is a brand that lives up to its expectation of customers by providing the best quality and best experience.
The Nykaa app is also a fine thing as you won’t have to solve rocket science to understand and use it. All of these features are a minor reason behind Nykaa’s loyal purchasers and if you can not believe my words then you can check their active members.
There is so much in the skin section to check out. From face wash, cleanser, scrub, exfoliators, facial wipes, makeup remover to toner, Nykaa has it all. And do not get disheartened if you could not find the best moisturizers, masks, kits, and combos.

eBay is one of the online shopping apps in India that resembles OLX (discussed later on. It gives you a two-in-one app that lets you not only buy things at a lower price than most but also provides you a platform to sell.
Undoubtedly the app is listed among other leading retailers that houses things related to home, electronics, cars, furniture, and many more and is like having a personal genie but with no restriction on wishes as it seems that they almost have everything.
If you could not find trustworthy second-hand cars then you can check out the automobiles present on eBay with quite a low price, at that. There are no criteria as to what should not be uploaded to sell so eBay is free territory for sellers as well as buyers.
The app interface is pretty simple and finding things are a lot easier with the filtered search option. Even though everything seems alright there are some people who are not happy with the app therefore it can be better than it is now.
All in all, this app does seem to attract users in but it can become a big hit if they work on customer experiences and broaden their marketing plans. If you can overlook this caveat then give eBay a thought.
If you are willing to take a chance then Ali Express is the right decision as the app has mixed criticism from customers. Although the number of downloads makes everyone believe that the placed order rarely comes bad.
The app needs quite a change as it does not have positive reviews from its Indian customers and the app’s interface is hard to get used to. Apart from this, the app has some good quality products at rates that can challenge other online shopping apps’ budgets in India.
Many customers put up with the app as the prices and the offers that they are getting are too good to let go of.
11. OLX: Buy & Sell near you
OLX is the shopping app that comes under online shopping apps in India that has both selling and buying features. It is a place where the rates are bargainous.
It is a spot where all types of second-hand products can be bought as well as sold. The process of buying from OLX is straightforward as you have to directly call the seller to know more about the product and confirm the deal.
To sell something on OLX, users simply have to put up a decent pic of the product and then whoever will be interested in the product will DM you via Chat First app. The app ensures that you are not getting scammed or receiving fraud calls.
You can sell anything on OLX as there is no restriction on what to sell. But keep in mind that having no restrictions does not mean you can put up crappy things for sales and also there is no assurance that it would be purchased or sold out.
But, you have to put up with a somewhat complicated interface to buy and sell on OLX, therefore, developers can work on making OLX a better online shopping app in India.
12. Club Factory
Reasonable prices? Check. Lage collection of different aesthetics? Check. If you are one of the people looking for that then why not give Club Factory a shot?
It is again one of the instances where the app hit off the instance it was launched in the fashion show biz. The prices for some of the things can go as low as RS.90. The app has an intuitive interface that does not give much trouble to the customer.
It can be a place where you come to find men’s jeans as well as trendy women’s solid denim. The app believes in good quality at a good rate therefore you won’t have any complaints regarding the orders’ quality.
Women’s department has ethnic as well as western wear collection, jewelry, a wide range of bags and watches, style studded footwear, and comfy innerwear and nightwear, and the list is too long to write it all here.
And then there is the men, baby, and kids department and not to forget home decor and living furniture. The availability does not end here as you can also shop mobiles and electronics-related accessories, grocery, beauty and personal care, and many more.
