Prominent e-commerce players like Amazon.in, Ebay.in, BigBazaar Direct, Yepme.com, Flipkart and Jabong have been conferred the first eTailing India e-commerce industry awards.

Jabong.com won the "Online Retailer of the Year" award, while Yepme.com was declared winner of "Web-only Brand of the Year".

The "Business to Consumer (B2C) Marketplace of the Year" award went to Flipkart.com and "Global Online Marketplace of the Year" was given to Ebay.in. The "Path-breaking Debut of the Year" award went to Amazon.in.

The awards were conferred at eTailing India's flagship Conference and Exhibition 2014, an event that brought together major stakeholders in the retail and e-commerce business in the country.

Congratulating the winners, eTailing India founder Ashish Jhalani said: "This is an inflection point in time for e-commerce adoption in India. People started buying online because of ease and greater variety. The industry will have to consolidate and give better reasons for people to stay online."

Over 300 people participated at the three-day eTailing India's flagship event held in the country's commercial capital last week. Awards were given in 10 different categories.

The conference featured over 70 industry speakers representing companies like Neville Taraporewalla, GM India and Microsoft.
