Flipkart fashions itself a one-stop online shopping destination that provides shoppers with a wide range of product choices in dozens of categories as one of the longest ecommerce shopping platforms in the world.

In India, Flipkart is headquartered in Bangalore, while it was originally incorporated in Singapore. Prior to expanding its venture into other product categories including consumer electronics, lifestyle products, groceries, home goods, and fashion, the company’s primary focus was on online book sales.

Flipkart has a commanding position in the clothes market, thanks to its acquisition of Myntra, and is "neck and neck" with Amazon in the selling of gadgets and mobile phones.
