A seller of homegrown fairness creams, tooth powder and herbal products hits upon huge demand in Russia, Israel and Turkey. Hospitals in Korea turn to a retired navy commander in Mumbai for dental products. A leather jacket maker in Dharavi ships his wares to London and New York.

India’s e-commerce story has largely centred on big players such as Flipkart, Paytm and Snapdeal. But a growing bunch of small businesses are laying down an equally compelling, if not more audacious, growth track by pushing e-commerce exports. They cater to discerning clients in abroad by listing products on online market places eBay and Amazon and then shipping them through logistics service providers like DHL Express.
