As Bob Dylan once sang, "Times are a changing", it has never been so true. 

Over the years commerce has changed tremendously in India and in last couple of years specifically, the transformation has been led by technology, or to be precise, web technology.

As of today, there is virtually nothing that you cant buy online, in India.

With a large part of commerce showing a drift towards online, it is now more important than ever for the neighbourhood retailers and merchants to have an online presence.

Neighbourhood merchants and retailers who have thrived over the years on service and relationship with their customers are suddenly facing competition from the convenience of buying online and almost spoiling choice of inventory over the web.

In order to compete in these changing times, they must go where the action is - ie Online.

Vikreyta is a web retailer that enables shoppers to buy online from their trusted and favourite neighbourhood retailers in a hassle-free manner. We are expos…

Alpha Online !!!


We are happy to say that we went "Alpha Online" on 12th February 2012.

One historical fact, which we just happened to stumble upon, day before yesterday itself, Abraham Lincoln who is the epitome of the "Never Ever Quit" spirit was born on the same day in 1809.

He has been and now, shall more so, would be our inspiration in the times to come.

The first set of inventory of more than 140 different inventory units from more than 35 retailers of Pune is now available for your shopping.

In the meanwhile, we are still working on to fix the various bugs which are being reported by some wonderful people of this planet , and in fact shipped a few new patches about a hour back or so.

You can stay updated on our facebook and twitter account on whats going on at our HQs.

There is never enough, and thats why we always say, Thank You!


In Private Alpha...

Its been a while since we posted an update, the reason has been that we have been too busy in developing the product, fixing the bugs and launching it to our customers.
We have finished the development work of Vikreyta 2.0 and are now ironing out the last few glitches.
In the meanwhile we have launched the product in the market to our customers and have received encouraging response.
For the users, we are still under "Private Alpha" and have been soliciting responses from select few people.
We hope to move from "Private Alpha" to "Alpha" soon.
Being in "Alpha" for a while will help us in gathering feedback and fixing the relevant bugs while the product is open to a larger audience.
We will keep you posted.
Thanks !
