▲ ▼ Find made in India products on ecommerce sites
I would like to support Indian manufacturers and small industries in India. So, I deliberately buy India manufactured products on ecommerce sites like Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal, Paytm Mall etc.
But finding India manufactured products on ecommerce sites in India is not a straightforward affair, I need to dig around the manufacturer to find the country of origin. Luckily, the government ordered these ecommerce sites to display the 'Country of Origin' for all items. Which they are slowly complying to, but now I have to search for Country of Origin : India in the product description of every item I'm interested in manually as these ecommerce sites do not display it at a prominent location.
I would like to find an easier way to find products with Country of Origin : India on these ecommerce sites and I have seen several others expressing similar views.
It seems that the Government of India has rapped the ecommerce sites to oblige with the Country of Origin : India guidelines again - https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/tech/technology/govt-raps-amazon-flipkart-over-country-of-origin-details/articleshow/78712819.cms .
Even if the ecommerce sites oblige to these guidelines, they will publish Country of Origin : India at an obscure location such as product description, which is useless as we need to check product description of each an every item individually to make our buying decision.
Okay, time to come out clean; I've been building Country of Origin : India browser extension ever since you published this need gap and also that I've seen several others expressing their need for such a solution including me!
Hey, this is awesome! I tried it out and works exactly how it should. I never thought that the need gap would be resolved so quick, I cannot appreciate this enough and so to start I gave Country of Origin : India extension a 5 star review.
Also, I'm starting to love this platform as I can see that this is not the first time a problem has been resolved so quick.
