Launched on January 1, 2011, the website has around 300 sellers and close to 500 registered users.

According to NetHaat, every seller gets his sub domain name and PayPal is integrated for payments to reach directly into sellers account. Besides, the website also provides an online negotiation feature where sellers, apart from their normal online store, can display their excess inventory stock or any item they wish to put on sale for better turnaround. Sellers also get a locker where the seller can save his creations and designs from being copied. Locker can be only accessed by those who the seller wants, by use of limited time password. Besides this, the website also enables buyers to get any of the items custom created from any seller.

Speaking to AlooTechie about the idea, Rakesh Sonava, co-founder and CEO, NetHaat.com said, “Our objective was to offer an online marketplace for the sellers and buyers of handmade items globally. India has a vast resource of artisan, artists, and designers and home makers who want to be present online but are reluctant with the initial cost, maintenance and marketing expenses. All the three concerns have been addressed by NetHaat to facilitate more and more sellers come online and display their hand created products.” The venture has been self funded by the founders Rakesh Sonava and Roshan Agarwal and the company employs six people in its office in New Delhi with support staff at Jaipur and Ahmedabad.
