I guess,shop 18 is nothing but a hoax.Need to focus on and invst in new ventures where the customer would put in good faith .Money would accumulate where the business can grab attention.For eg private treaties

Why is it being thought that Shop18 would become the largest ecommerce portal.Surely other key players are there but a common difficulty is procurement of products through third parties .The consumers are facing lot of problems due to this .Branded companies are not entering ,so would shop 18 cut through this hurdle and help in gaining expected returns for venture capitalists?

Make My Trip wasn't the ONLY online travel company in India in 2005. Journeymart.com has been in existence as a Travel Portal since 2001 and became a full fledged online travel agency in 2004.
