Their mission is to provide book lovers with a convenient and enriching shopping experience, right from the comfort of their homes.
We had the opportunity to meet Mr. Sankrant Sanu CEO of Garudabooks.com and discussed his journey in the e-commerce industry, along with the role Bagisto played in his success.
We have several books targeted at an international audience, written by authors from different countries. We also have a YouTube channel where we share videos related to Indian culture.
We cater to many languages in India, including Hindi and various regional languages. We publish books in multiple languages and collaborate with partners for translations.
Initially, we used WooCommerce on WordPress, but due to scaling and security issues, we switched to the Laravel stack with a reliable framework. We chose Bagisto, an open-source platform rooted in India.
Yes, we have seen significant improvements in performance compared to using WordPress and WooCommerce. The new platform Bagisto has been smoother and more scalable.
I believe it is crucial for India to focus on self-reliance and technological independence. Relying on foreign platforms and companies can pose security risks and impact sovereignty. Garuda is expanding into e-commerce to encourage Indian entrepreneurship and reduce reliance on foreign companies.
As e-commerce continues to grow, we plan to expand into different categories. We aim to provide a sophisticated user experience and incorporate technologies like AR and VR. Curation and expert guidance will also be important aspects of our future plans.
