Hobby Planet: Your Own Online Hobby Shop

Tell Us Something About The Store Owner-The Brain Behind The Brand?

Hobby Planet was conceptualized by Mr Mohit some time back. He hails from a service background with a penchant of customer service after working in various multinational companies at senior positions. His love for life, sports and activities related to hobbies drove this to the idea of launching the website hobbyplanet.in.

How Did You Come Up With The Idea Of Creating Your Own Store?
I wanted to set up my own store to provide greater choices at reasonable costs in the field of sports,
toys, backpacks, and unique gift items.

What Is So Unique About Your Online Store?
A good collection of sports/toys/gifts/backpacks and unique hobby related items at reasonable costs.

What Were The Major Challenges Did You Face While Starting Up?
There were challenges to choose a professional but affordable e-commerce platform among quite a few available. Later, after setting up a website, getting a professional and trustworthy payment gateway partner was a challenge. Suffice it to say KartRocket fitted the bill aptly as a perfect partner for providing a platform for websites with their aggressive approach.

StyleBuddha: Your Online Hub For Designer Clothes

Tell Us Something About The Store Owner-The Brain Behind The Brand?

StyleBuddha.in is the brainchild of Ritu Sahu Kapoor and her brother Ankur Sahu. Ritu comes from Banking & Finance Background whereas Ankur comes from Travel industry. Both of them hold over a decade’s experience in their fields.

How Did You Come Up With The Idea Of Creating Your Own Store?
We have lived practically all our lives in the area of Chandni Chowk, Delhi, famous for all the shopping options that it provides. The idea of StyleBuddha.in popped in our heads when a friend asked for our help to take her to some nice shops around Chandni Chowk to help her buy something ethnic for one of her special occasions. That is when we thought, if we could help people by bringing what they get in Chandni Chowk or any other wholesale market in India to their PC/Mobile’s screen. With the idea of how E-commerce industry in India is booming, we decided to conceptualize StyleBuddha.in in real.

What Is So Unique About Your Online Store?
At StyleBuddha.in we always handpick each and every product instead of selling everything. We are very selective of our vendors too to keep our product range “niche”. We sell Indian Ethnic Dresses as well as Western Clothes. Going forward StyleBuddha.in will also work as a platform for craftsmen to showcase their products.

What Were The Major Challenges Did You Face While Starting Up?
The biggest challenge we faced while starting up was to tie-up with some good vendors in order to provide our customers with a “Niche” product range. We also had nightmares whenever we thought of the cost of coming up with our own E-store since it takes a lot of investment to do so. Plus, since we do not have any technical background, thinking about setting up our own E-store was nothing less than a horror story in itself.

Any Learning You Want To Share With Fellow Entrepreneurs?
We had some major challenges while building our E-store but still we did it and we’re sure “you can too”. The only few things needed are:
1) Your Heart & Soul
2) Patience
3) Will.
Ankur left his well paid job to work towards this goal while Ritu had to compromise her time towards her family. When you put a lot of comforts at stake for what you really want to do and what you really love doing, then we’re sure you only tastes success in the end.

How Was Your Experience With KartRocket?
There is no doubt about that fact that without Kartrocket we couldn’t have done it at all. Kartrocket gave us just whatever we needed in terms of technology and support. The teams are very customer focused and gives you every help you need even if you have ZERO technical knowledge.

Want to shop the best traditional and western clothes from major wholesale market at your doorstep, then Style Buddha is the destination or you. Check out for latest women and men clothing.

The brain behind upbattis.in is Ankush Chhabra. I like spending time online using social media and came up with a Facebook page call “UP 32”. UP 32 is Lucknow’s vehicle registration code.

The main idea this community was to build and increase community engagement.

With UP32, we want to sell souvenirs of Lucknow. Although, we are making Lucknow special calendar to start with, we will be selling other stuff too related to UP32/Lucknow through our e-store.

What Is So Unique About Your Online Store?
UP32 is the only store that sells souvenirs of Lucknow.

What Were The Major Challenges Did You Face While Starting Up?
Since, I had zero knowledge about coding, I faced a lot of difficulty . Also, I faced issues with the back panel of our e-store as well as payment gateway integration. However, KartRocket helped me overcome these with its simple and easy to shoot panel.

Smaugit

Smaugit: Unique Accessory Store to Accelerate your Lifestyle

Tell Us Something About The Store Owner-The Brain Behind The Brand?

By profession I am a 3D Artist, who eventually got bored of the mundane 10 hrs daily routine job life. By heart, I am a traveler, a Biker to the core. I simply can’t sit at a place and think about saving money. I love to spend, especially on food and travel and I don’t think twice before doing that. I have always believed that making more money than you need (while you are young) is the solution, rather than die daily to fill a stupid savings account. So, an idea about becoming a full-throttle Entrepreneur was always in my thoughts. I had the will, all I needed was a way.

How Did You Come Up With The Idea Of Creating Your Own Store?

3 years back, I left my job and became a full time Biz Networker with an MNC. Besides the good pay, the company’s Education (training) really helped me in transforming into the free-willed man that I am today. But when everything was going in my favor, things started to change. My health suffered via a rare Bone-TB disease and a severe left leg spasm, both of which made me stuck on bed in excruciating pain for months. My will shattered, I lost faith. I was on ground Zero – barely any income & newly married!  I was out of options. Hence, I decided that it was time to apply my Biz Networking Education in real sense. E-commerce was an instant & obvious choice, and Smaugit was born.

What Is So Unique About Your Online Store?

Smaugit.com basically houses unique imported stuff, mostly Imported or hand-picked from different parts of the world. These items are very rare to find in India, especially at our given price. Even if there are common smartphones listed on our site, they’ll be very hard to find at our given price. Besides that we have listed very unique gadgets, gizmos, collectibles & essentials. Hence we like to call Smaugit.com as – ‘India’s only Assorted Essentials e-Store’.

What Were The Major Challenges Did You Face While Starting Up?

Here I would like to speak some bitter-sweet truth so that the readers do not get a wrong rosy-dosy picture! It’s nowhere easy to start an E-commerce Biz, or any business for that sake! Lots of hassles & surprises that will shake your budget & vision both, at any given time.  From deciding what to sell? How to sell? How much to stock? How to arrange finances? What kind of backup to be kept? Store look? Which platform to use? Isn’t easy. The mere thought and starting process drain you up badly.

Thanks to KartRocket that we now have a cost-effective tool n support for easy store setup. Even though KartRocket provided me with maximum support it can, I was badly troubled by the payment gateway guys. All I can say is, besides that one major issue with the gateway company, Kartrocket took care of everything else. Thanks.

Any Learning You Want To Share With Fellow Entrepreneurs?

Yes, two things:

1) Make enough money while you can.

2) Stop thinking; just start doing what you feel like.

How Was Your Experience With KartRocket?

Smooth up till now and hoping for the same in the future.
