How LimeRoad Stands Out from Other Online Retail Platforms?

The main thing that makes it stand out from other old guards online retail such as Myntra and Jabong is that it allows customers to discuss the products, purchases, and promotions. Their primary business promotion relies on user-generated content. 

Apart from fashion and apparel, LimeRoad also offers kitchen and home products. Moreover, it allows sellers to post their collection, videos, looks, besides selling products, which enables them to market their brand and build an audience. 

The US-based cybersecurity firm had announced the data leak of 1.29 million records of LimeRoad customers. However, the team had called these allegations baseless. While commenting on the matter, Suchi Mukherjee, CO-founder of LimeRoad, stated that they had sought data to validate from the darknet poster and cybersecurity officer. However, they did not receive any further data. Hence the team has no reason to believe that the data belongs to their customers.
