buyhatke’s Story

BuyHatke is an online product, price search and social recommendation engine.

Gaurav Dahake had a friend’s birthday coming up. But he was not only faced with the dilemma of what to buy but also where to buy it from. With the Internet teeming with e-commerce sites boasting of the best deals in town, he went ahead and bought an iPod-touch on a site, and was happy with the purchase. But his friend burst his bubble and told him it was available for a good lesser on another site. It was very frustrating for him to know that he had paid more. That’s when the idea of a site that searches for the best deals among other e-commerce sites dawned on him and was conceived.

The website grabs results from various online shopping portals and extends best deal to the customer who can then be redirected to the shopping portal offering the best deal. Presently, the startup has products listed across online retailers like Flipkart, eBay, Infibeam, Homeshop18, Jabong, Myntra and Yebhi etc.
