Junglee.com is an online shopping service by Amazon which enables customers to find and discover products from online and offline retailers in India. Junglee.com started off as a virtual database that was used to extract information off the Internet and deliver it to enterprise applications. As it progressed, Junglee.com started to use its database technology to create a single window marketplace on the Web by making every item from every supplier available for purchase, thereby saving consumers and enterprises time and money. Web shoppers could locate, compare and transact millions of products from across the Internet shopping mall through one window.[2]

Amazon acquired Junglee in 1998, and Junglee.com was launched in India in February 2012[3][4] as a comparison-shopping website. Today, it curates and helps search through a wide variety of products like clothes, electronics, toys, jewellery, video games and much more across thousands of online and offline sellers. Customers can browse through millions of products, choose the product and price they like, and then be directed to the seller who is selling that particular product.
