Once the dominant player in India’s online retail industry, eBay has come under increasing pressure in recent years due to the emergence of so-called inventory players like Amazon and Flipkart.

Unlike eBay, which originated as a platform for individuals to sell or exchange their used items, the other platforms are more geared towards selling new items.

eBay, however, has also adapted its business model to the new opportunity and serves as a platform for many wholesalers and retailers.

However, the platform suffers from one key shortcoming — the absence of user feedback and reviews on products. User reviews are used by most online shoppers to decide whether to buy an item or not.
