Online Shopping Experience @ Healthkart, and Urbantouch

The Indian Market has started flourishing on World Wide Web which I always wished for. So, I inevitably decided to purchase from some websites  the same day and almost same time because my hands were itching and I wanted to see which website had the fastest delivery.

My choices were, healthkart and urbantouch because I had never purchased from them while I had already experienced violetbag and 365gorgeous and I wasn't aware of Style Craze, Goodlife and Snap it today and some others.

My Order: Stainless Steel Rubber Grip Tweezer and Himalaya Gentle Hydrating Face Wash

My Experience:

Good- Website appears neat and helps easy navigation.Colors displayed on cosmetix are perfect. 
Bad - You don't have anything to navigate for.

Bad- Very less brands available.  
Good - Most sought after products form the brands are available.  
Bad - Most of them are SOLD OUT.

Good- I was not charged any shipping charges for my purchases  
Bad - Probably they have changed their policies and now they charge Rs 40 if total amount is less than Rs 200.

Good- Email service is good.  
Bad- They don't have mobile updates facility like  
Good- They are prompt in updating the status from shipping to delivery.  
Very Good - They have the dates mentioned under my Order History from Payment Accepted till Delivery.

My Order: Colorbar Nail Lacquer - Desire 22

 Good - Uncluttered, easy to navigate.
Bad - I don't like the colors displayed which is a bit misleading in terms of nail polishes and stuff.

Good- All major Indian Brands and  other popular brands outside of India are available.
Bad - They don't have Chambor and Wella available. Considering the name of Urbantouch, I think they should.
Good - A vast variety of products from all brands available.
