Hey, do you have any contact no. of theirs except for the one given on their site (+91 98203 26571) by any chance ?
I ordered an HP680 cartridge on 1st Nov and they haven't despatched it till today and I tried calling above number but its switched off. Mailed their customer care too but no replies till now, maybe due to diwali holidays but they should've despatched it before holidays began.
Okay, the contact number did work yesterday finally. The CC rep who picked up said that the ink cartridge wasn't shipped due to Diwali holidays, but when I countered that it should've been shipped before holidays began, she apologized for the delay and told me that she will get it shipped same day. Later in the day I got a mail with shipping details.

Normally, I don't check the status of just shipped items. This time I clicked on the link anyways and behold, it showed the item as delivered! Seems like they had despatched the cartridge same day I had ordered on 1st Nov (Great Job). And it was delivered to my campus gate on 8th as well.

So the cartridge was just sitting idle in the guard room for past 2 days. Anyways, installed the cartridge and HP printer registered it as original HP cartridge and initial impression is good. Lets hope number of pages output is reasonable enough.
 
I recommend easyshoppi.com for PC components, their whatsapp support is quick. It's the only website I could find which shows prices significantly lesser than others for GPU.

I am looking forward to buy a component from there, seems priced very competitively.

So far, I called there once and they were very responsive in checking the box contents for included adapters and informing me - this experience gives me a slight confidence in them.

Will post here about rest of the experience...

I've bought stuff in range of ~1L from there(last purchase was back in April though). They almost always pickup the calls and pretty responsive over WhatsApp too. Packing is also top notch.


BTW I had no issues with orders or delivery so no idea how they'd respond when things go south.

You should have searched the forums -
And I purchased a Logitech MX Keys from Vishal earlier in the year and my experience was positive.

Adding a few to the list that aren't technically PC hardware related:

DIY India: https://www.diy-india.com/ for screws, nuts, and other things. They have zinc plated (black) screws in countersunk, button head, and socket head. Ships extremely quick through Delhivery, usually within a few hours or early morning the next day.

3d Printronics: https://www.3dprintronics.com/ for black anodized 2020 aluminum profiles that can be cut to exact length and other 2020 profile related accessories. Great for custom super strong chassis ideas, though it can get expensive. Ships by FedEx for under 300 for most orders.

IPSAMART: https://ipsamart.com/ for drawer slides, door hinges, handles, etc. They're on Amazon but they have a larger range on their website. And they're priced much better. They spent 300 on speedpost for an order with free shipping for a Rs 899 drawer slide that I needed (it was a 750mm black one).

Sunrom Electronics: https://www.sunrom.com/ for a limited but always in stock collection of electronics components, connectors, and hardware. Prices aren't always competitive, but their strength is their stock organization. Shipping is varied. There's an excellent electronics component market local to me but it's almost always overrun with electronics engineering students so I find myself preferring to pay a small premium and ordering online instead.

Other shops like the above that I have been happy with:

rareComponents: https://rarecomponents.com/

ElectronicsComp: https://www.electronicscomp.com/

BM Embedded Solution: https://bm-es.com/ (now closed)

Tomson Electronics: https://www.tomsonelectronics.com/

And for some unconventionally flavoured cold brew coffee:

Bold Cold Brew: https://boltcoldbrew.com/

Sorry about my slightly delayed response.

Current Status: Experience is positive.

Here is the story till now, and I will update in this thread when further updates happen:

Planned to purchase a Quadro T400 GPU, and the best cost that I could search as available on EasyShoppi
So I called them on 15th Nov., to ask about the included adapters (three MiniDP to DP adapters). They checked, called me back and confirmed the inclusion of these adapters.
I placed the order on 16th Nov., after creating an account on their website. The interface and all are pretty OK, considering it is a small business. The shipping charge was clearly communicated.

The payment process had multiple options (bank transfer, UPI, net-banking) and I chose the latter (net-banking).
It was executed through Razor-Pay and it levied a ~184 convenience charge. I am not sure if this would apply to other payment methods, so this may be on me selecting the payment mode.
The order status became "processing" in the orders tab of the account info.

Their Whatsapp / Phone call response has been quite good overall. One or two whatsapp messages were missed, but they always responded to calls. Informed me the expected shipping date (some stock up-down issue), and they have confirmed today that the order has been shipped as per that committed date, and they'll share the tracking details with me.

I think I would receive the product in a day or two. Will check their packing etc., and update more here.

EDIT: Just after I posted this, I received a call that a courier has come from Chandigarh thru Blue Dart. Seems to me the card is delivered. Will check in evening after returning from office.

Yes, it is the Quadro that has been delivered...
The packing is quite decent - looks like two layers of bubble wrap on top of a cardboard wrap on the real product box.

Was shipped yesterday and I got it today, so seems that a good tier of bluedart shipping is used by them.

Will soon open the package and verify contents - and with that will be able to complete the review of the experience at EasyShoppi

EDIT after checking package:
Box contents exactly as expected based on confirmation from shop personnel.

Final shopping experience status: Positive / Satisfied
The experience seems to indicate that the shop is legit.
However, for additional peace of mind, we can always call them and confirm items' status etc. before placing final order with them.
