The Great Online Shopping festival is all set to India on December 12, which is being organized by Google India. It is a 24-hour shopping marathon, which is happening in conjunction with major players in eCommerce, local, classified and online travel sites.
Consumers will be able to shop for a wealth of items including shoes, clothes, jewellery, apparel, travel packages, books, kids wear, gadgets, watches, computer peripherals and what not. Products will be shipped for free across India, but that will be dependent on the product in question and the retailer. Google India has tied up with most of the major e-retailers in India.
