Mumbai Mart was launched in 1998!
It started as India’s first e-commerce (online shopping) site. First to offer COD, Free Delivery, Coupons and a whole lot more shopping related features and information. But we were too early to the game, the market was too nascent and even with great initial traction it was tough to generate enough revenues to justify operational costs and hence ended our experiment with e-commerce. We’ll probably bring shopping back someday, but only when we have a positive revenue model in place.
MumbaiMart is a favourite online destination for a wide viewership of people from around the world [250,000 to 1,250,000 hits each month from over 80 countries] we continue to provide news, information and our own particular slice of Mumbai life.
