Toptomato is an e-commerce platform for grocery, personal care and household products. There are many online platforms for a variety of products but the one, which supplies grocery items etc, is a bit different. This makes it a unique concept. Apart from this, Toptomato has e-subscription, which is launched in India for the first time. It means we can subscribe for regular needs like Milk, Butter etc. and have to specify the frequency of delivery. Finally, there is a discount on all the products. The idea of e-commerce came in to existence because in India, an average Indian spends about 58% of his monthly retail on food and household care products.
Toptomato aims to change the total shopping experience for its customers. It mainly targets people in the age group 20-45 in India. They show interest to buy online. The overall concept of Toptomato is not only developing an e-grocery shop but also to create a platform where the user can place a frequency of his needs and the delivery is taken automatically. This does not make the user to order frequently.
Toptomato.in was started in the September 2012. It is headquartered in Bangalore.
