Online Shopping Experience With Healthkart.Com
Diwali season is the busiest time of the year for me, so I resort to online shopping or no shopping at all. Thankfully, there has been a sudden spate of online shopping websites this year and I tried almost each of them this month 😀 Sharing my experience with one such website, “healthkart.com”
This is how the main page of the website looks like:
What The Website Claims:
Launched in March 2011, HealthKart is India’s first e-health store. We aspire to be the one-stop shop for all consumer healthcare needs for people in India. We are specially focused on providing quality products and services at the most cost effective rates, and delivered with a service mindset to ensure you get more out of your purchase. We want to be a partner in your healthcare needs – so we try to work with all our customers to ensure we stock the products they need, provide quality and authenticity and help you figure out the best way to manage your health. We recognize that the consumer healthcare market has a lot of products, and a lot of fuzzy information. And prices variation that sometimes seems to make no sense! What we try to do is de-clutter this information, show you what all is available and try to ensure you get the best deal.
You can check their website here. I placed my order with them on October 12, and received it within 2 days, i.e., on 14th October.
Coming to what all I ordered:
My order arrived in an orange/copper-coloured cardboard box which was sealed completely. Everything I ordered was tightly/carefully wrapped in bubble wraps individually. I unwrapped everything as soon as I received my stuff and forgot to take its pictures. I received an invoice for my order too. The products I received where crisp, brand new, in good condition and no issues with their date of manufacturing, etc. too.
I got about 5% of discount on each product, which is not grand, but not bad either. What made me a little happier was the Rs. 100 off discount I got, since I had used a referral code given by a friend. This website has a nice promotion scheme – with your each order, they will give you an unique referral code, which you can give to anyone who uses it, with Rs.100 off on the first order. Also, the person who refers the website/code gets Rs. 100 in return in their healthkart account too.
The website has free shipping over orders above Rs.500 and for orders below Rs.500, its Rs.30, which is fair enough I think. They also offer cash on delivery, but the sad part is that they charge you another Rs.70 for that. So, I chose to pay via net banking.
Overall, it was a decent shopping experience with the website and I am definitely shopping with them again.

What is Not-So-Good about Shopping with Healthkart.Com:
- For orders below Rs. 500, they do charge shipping.
- They have additional cash on delivery charges.
