1.They directly ties up with manufacturers thats why you received deals only on
2. some charge membership fee from sellers like indiamart. it help to genrate revenue.
3. They are building their market. they are providing cheap products and incurring loss but its a market strategy.

Small vendor and small shopkeepers can register themselves on their portal. if you are not changing with time then you will surely fail someday .

they can also offer discount and deals to build up their market.

those who are offering cheap price are having  huge funds, right now their aim is to attract and retain customer, so even if they suffer lose they cover it with their own fund.

Main difference between online & offline are fixed costs, middleman etc which reduces the cost for seller.

small vendors can survive by making good customer relations, can use other portals provided by third party to connect with online customer...

HUL  started to connect local retailers  in mumbai, it is in starting phase...
