Shimply.com is Delhi based, one of India's fastestgrowing multicategory online bazaar for Indian made products with a focus on ‘India ko Try Karke Dekho.’ The company is trying to bridge a gap between online and offline through its virtual trial room technology which will enable a soft touch feel in an online world. Driven by a customer centric approach, Shimply provides the best online shopping experience, right from varied products, low price, fast delivery, simple interface, and the best customer service experience. Shimply is simply, the spirit of united India on one platform that every Indian could identify with!
It started with a naive idea of its founder, Rajat Garg who had the opportunity to travel to different parts of India with his father who was a BSF personnel. Be it the deserts of Jaisalmer or the snowy mountains of Kashmir, the fort city of Gwalior or the jackfruit city of Agartala, he realised each of these places have their own unique culture. Each place had a different culture in terms of clothing, jewellery, food preference, customs etc. but this difference made each place special, in its own way. He used to bring souvenirs for friends and family, from each of the places and those gifts were extremely cherished. This made him realise the value exists for these authentic and high quality products but there was no credible platform from where these products could be bought without the need to visit each place individually. This realisation gave way to Shimply. Shimply is the only Indian ecommerce company to have a comprehensive set of APIs. There are over 1,000 affiliates who have signed up and many of them use Shimply’s APIs to generate more than one million queries every month. Shimply has 3,000 listed sellers and 1.7 crore products. The company aims is to establish trust in buying unbranded products online. Over 40% of its sellers are firsttime online sellers. The major USP of Shimply is its Virtual Trial Room which is available on its mobile app it allows you to try on Indian products like clothing, jewellery and home décor!
The platform wants to work on the grass root level in India to bring unique products online and also pass on all the benefits directly to artisans. Given that Internet penetration is still low in rural areas, it’s a struggle to get quality sellers online. Shimply is a medium to bring this diversity to one platform which can resonate with every Indian living in that state, every migrant who misses his/her state, every Indian who wishes to try something new and every nonIndian who aspires to get a feel of India.
