Internet has made the shopping better, easier and user-friendly. People who are not able to give time for shopping because of their busy schedule can buy all the things online from the comfort of their home or office. They will get the items delivered directly to their door steps without any hassles. Online shopping helps you to save your valuable money & time and you don’t have to stand in those irritating long queues at pay points. As per the survey, 8 in 10 shoppers become frustrated with queues at pay points and 7 in 10 shoppers leave the store without making a purchase due to long queues. Airtel has launched its own online shop, shop.airtel.com for the people who don’t like to stand in line.
Shop.airtel.com has been launched by Airtel on 27th April. The site is user-friendly and uncluttered. This online store has a huge collection of all the products and services of Airtel.

Currently, the site provides mobile handsets from 7 different brands such as Samsung, Nokia, Apple, HTC, Sony, LG and BlackBerry.

Users will get up to 33% discount on cell phones with exclusive Airtel plans like 500MB free 3G data for one month and cash back offers on new broadband connections (Rs 500) and digitalTV connections (Rs 250).
