Purplle is a combination of technology and beauty and it delivers the best of both. A good user interface is most important for an e-commerce website. It’s a way to connect to customers. Purplle has a user-friendly, easily accessible and nicely categorized portal. Customers can shop by category, by brand, by price, by relevance, rating and discount.

The best thing is the Packaging. Every product is bubble wrapped. Also, the cap of every product is wrapped with scotch tape so that the product doesn’t open in transit. The only downside of Purplle.com is that not many brands are updated frequently, even you may not find some line of products in a particular brand which is disappointing.
