Shopping with VioletBag

Monday, October 1, 2012

Hey Girls,

Today’s review is not about any makeup product but a online shopping website. I had a wonderful experience shopping with Violetbag. Here’s a bit about the Violetbag, in their own words.

Bringing your VioletBag to you is a self-driven and committed team of IIT/IIM graduates who founded after having built another flourishing ecommerce startup. In addition to their experience in eCommerce, the VioletBag team, after successful career stints in leading companies, brings in expertise from areas like technology, product development, operations, finance and marketing. As is evident from their diverse backgrounds, each team member brings a unique set of capabilities to the table. As a group, they have valued these differences and have encouraged each other to question, create and experiment in their pursuit of excellence. However, the inimitable strength of the team lies in each individual’s ability to work independently and in their ability to build things from scratch. A deep sense of ownership has resulted in considerable throughput during the initial phases of development and roll-out; and as they go forward, it is their aim to continue building on these values and strengths in new members as well as within the organization.

My Experience with VioletBag
First of all, I really liked the name VioletBag. It’s quite catchy and unique. Isn’t it  ? Quite like their brand name, they provide a wonderful shopping experience. VioletBag is quite user friendly, easy to navigate. All one has to do is to select the product, add it to the shopping bag, make payment and provide your shipping details. Voila, you are done. VioletBag claims that orders shall be received within 3-5 working days. Absolutely True. 

Here's a small breakup of how my order reached me: 
Thursday - Order Placed, SMS and email received within few minutes.
Friday - SMS and email confirming shipping of order.
Sunday - Order Received.

A few more features of VioletBag
Navigation and User Friendly  
The website is quite easy to navigate and the procedure for placing order itself is quite simple and easy.  You can place the order in just few clicks

Huge number of Brands
The product range includes a large variety of brands and products to choose from. VioletBag are also the first shopping portal I came across which houses products from The Body Shop. Needless, to say, I got their much acclaimed exfoliating gloves.  Their collection of perfumes and fragrances is simply mind-blowing. Have a look at their range of Fragrances.  

Product Packaging and Shipment

The goods were delivered in a pretty violet box which was sealed with plastic from outside. Inside, each and every single item was bubbled wrapped and the left out space in the box was stuffed with Styrofoam cubes to avoid any damage during shipment. Every product came in perfect condition without any damage. I was a bit concerned about a lip pencil I ordered but it also arrived unharmed. So, if you are ogling at your favourite perfume but sceptical to buy it fearing breakage, don’t hesitate. I am pretty much confident it will arrive safely.
