happycheckout

Online shopping has really caught on in India now, people aren't as hesitant as before and have become more open to the idea of buying things online. One major reason for this shift in the trend are the more than lucrative discounts and offers given by these e-commerce websites. If you get something at half the price, anyone is more likely to buy the product. After people realized that this discount trend is here to stay, you would find websites with all the discount coupons on one place creeping up. One such startup is Hyderabad-based HappyCheckOut, but with a twist!

A large number of online stores with varied offers have led to a growing number of coupon websites which trick consumers by showing up in google and leaving them disappointed during checkout. In order to address such resentful shoppers that are HappyCheckout was created.

THE IDEA



In principle HappyCheckOut is like another run in the mill coupon website but there are certain things set them apart from the rest.  They offer discount coupons along with Brand promise of verified coupons with guaranteed discounts, unlike other websites where half the coupons are out of date or don't work at all.

1. Discount Coupons
2. Discount deals
3. Reward deals
