An online marketplace swamps the shoppers with a vast amount of choices pertaining to products, their price, quality, reviews, etc. But on the flip side, too many choices lead to an utter chaos. With an ocean of products available, the shoppers find it really tough to pick a product to their requirements and even if they succeed in finding one, it comes at the expense of their valuable time.
