eCommerce is crazy when it comes to growth - you hear this everywhere. If you Google top business ideas to start with low capital, you'll come across a suggestion to start your eCommerce store. 

And why should you not, too? 

In one of my recent blogs on starting your own Shopify store, I mentioned how the eCommerce opportunity is growing by the day. 

The rise of Facebook-ads-driven D2C brands in the last three years has paved the way for growth & success for many small eCommerce businesses, D2C brands, and even conventional shop owners. 

Most eCommerce brand owners look for a simple, easy, and pocket-friendly way to manage their eCommerce operations. And that's where Shopify comes into the picture.

What is Shopify? 

Shopify is a powerful eCommerce platform that helps you to sell products online. The easiest way to create an online store in minutes without technical knowledge. It is an excellent choice for those who are not tech savvy or do not have much time to launch and manage their store. 

Shopify allows you to launch your eCommerce store and accept orders in hours. Even Shopify pricing plans are pocket-friendly compared to the hassle of managing multiple costs like hosting, development, design, product management, backend dashboard, etc. 

Many small business owners, startups, drop shippers, and even established brands use Shopify to host their stores and manage eCommerce operations in India. Shopify is even thinking of partnering with ONDC network in India to increase the scope and visibility of Shopify sellers in India.

Let's look at some of the brands that are killing it in India's eCommerce and D2C industry and how Shopify is assisting them in their goals. 

Fashion & Apparel Shopify Stores in India

Farda Clothing

Farda Clothing is a contemporary fashion and apparel brand inspired to create unique streetwear for youth. Chahat Pahuja and Sanskar Mishra gained fame and recognition after appearing on Shark Tank India season 1

Bummer is another D2C brand using Shopify featured on Shark Tank India Season 1. Bummer is a hip underwear brand known for trendy designs, comfortable fits, and super soft clothing. 

According to the founder, the brand is about variety, comfort and sustainability. Bummer's  pitch on Shark Tank India tells us a lot of detail about running a Shopify store, including the cost of marketing, logistics and shopping margins.

Food, Beverages & Snacking Shopify Stores in India

TeaBox 

TeaBox claims to have India's first 100% transparent procurement tea process. The brand brings you fresh tea from the finest estates in Assam, Nilgiris, and other parts of India/Nepal in under seven days.

The brand has built its reputation on its proximity to estates and freshness promise and offers the choicest tea varieties in vacuum-sealed packs for you to cherish. 

TeaBox migrated to Shopify owing to its increased expenses while using the previous Django-based platform. After moving to Shopify's robust platform, they have reduced their IT and resources costs and are using it to scale their footprint and operations online.
