India Deals Online is a community based deal sharing site. The site has been designed very well and all the elements for making up a good deal aggregator is right there. It provides users a forum to collaborate and share information in order to make sound shopping decisions. But for some reason, it hasn’t really caught up with the masses as its Alexa rank languishes around the million mark.
There’s a Published Deals section which put up the high quality deals. But there’s hardly been any activity here for the last year or so. The Upcoming deals section shows deals submitted by users but haven’t yet made the cut. The deals are also discussed here. Groups can be created and users can submit deals. There are also tonnes of features with easy navigation.
Perhaps, India Deals Online was a bit ahead of it’s time in the Indian market – unfortunately. Probably allowing paid placement for frontpage deal listings may help turn around the fortunes.
