  • India Online, ShalinIndia a Top Seller on AmazonDated: Mar 28, 2011Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk have named ShalinIndia, an online shopping store from India, as one ofthe top sellers on Amazon during Holiday & Christmas Sales 2010.Amazon services management team has felicitated India online shopping store ShalinIndia for itsperformance during the 2010 holiday season. “Your sales ranked among the top 25% of allAmazon.com sellers over the 2010 holiday season. In addition, your customer satisfactionmetrics were excellent (in other words A+) over this period. You provided an exceptionalshopping experience for customers on amazon.com and we would like to thank you for the hardwork and dedication that made these results possible,” Amazon wrote to ShalinIndia
  • This online store was set up by Shalini Verma, a housewife from Jharkhand, a tribal region ofeastern India. Shalini’s journey from an ordinary housewife, with no knowledge of computersand little ability to speak English, to becoming one of the top sellers on Internet to globalcustomers is truly extraordinary . “I am thrilled. It has been like living a dream. I am glad I amborn in this era when technology is able to provide opportunities to common people like me,”says Shalini Verma . ShalinIndia’s products are in traditional, ethnic design. Village artisansfrom different regions of India handcraft these products. These traditional skills have beenperfected over several generations. “Our customers have loved our products for their Christmasgifts. We owe our success to humble artisans who live in the villages of India and whose onlysource of livelihood is their craft. Internet has enabled international customers to buy creations ofthese hereditary and gifted craftsmen,” says Shalini Verma. Shalini Verma’s vision is to build aglobal sales platform that would enable these artisans to sustain themselves.Shalini Verma had first looked at the option of selling within India to local customers. However,she soon realized that Internet penetration was too low in India and that Indians preferred to feeland touch the product before buying. Since the domestic market was not yet ready for e-commerce, Ms. Verma chose to go international. Here too she met with obstacles. “Internationalcustomers were hesitant to do shopping on our site because of two reason: one, as the items wereshipped from India the customers were skeptical about timely delivered; two, the uncertainty ofapplicable of custom charges,”she explains. “We resolved these problems by shifting ourinventory to Amazon fulfillment centers in US, UK, France, Germany, and Japan under theirFBA program. This enabled us to reduce delivery time to 2 to 3 days, and making theshipping free for the customers.”Now ShalinIndia is reaching out to non-English speaking markets as well. “We have begun tosell on Amazon marketplaces in France, Germany and Japan. We plan to start selling on e-bayand other marketplaces in different countries. We are also building our own branded Indiashopping web stores in Italian, Spanish, French, German, Korean, Chinese, and Japaneselanguages with local domain names and accepting payments in local currencies. On these siteswe will also provide local customer service in native language and we will accept returnslocally.”About ShalinIndiaShalinIndia is an online India shopping store for handmade gifts, Indian clothing, Indianjewellery, home decorations, dinnerware for Indian foods, and statues of Hindu gods.
