About the Company
Salebhai Internet Ltd. (SIL) is the owner of Salebhai.com e-commerce portal. This portal is an Indian e-commerce portal that enables people living away from home order a range of specialties directly from their hometowns. It is also a one-stop solution for those who want to discover regional products from across India. People can pick from a wide variety of delicious consumable items like sweets, namkeen, chocolates, bakery, spices, dry fruits, beverages, and pickles. Salebhai also offers other products such as handicrafts, paintings, puja items, handloom goods, and herbal & wellness items.
Salebhai identified the market gap led by people migrating within Indian and abroad and goods representing their culture resulting in short supply. After studying migration trends among Indian citizens, it was observed that most people moved to fast growing cities like Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Mumbai – either due to employment opportunities, education, or marriage.
The market gap also demonstrated that migration created a void in people‘s lives. Therefore, driven by back-to-roots philosophy, this E-commerce marketplace focuses on requirements of over 17 Diaspora communities living in big Indian cities as well as those who live abroad. With 8500 products sourced from over 100 cities and 300 select vendors, the company provides people with an opportunity to buy products in various categories from sellers across India as well as discover new items from different communities and cultures.

Salebhai.com plans to further deepen its offerings to customers by penetrating into smaller towns for sourcing, will widen our offering by adding new categories which are missed by people. The company has a strong team which consists of professionals with proven expertise in IT, marketing, content development, innovation, disruptive thinking, channel management, logistics, and customer support.

Taking into account negative earnings, aggressive pricing and non impressive financial data, issue is not worth considering for investment. However, considering fancy of its peer, cash surplus risk savvy investors may consider investment at their own risk.
