Pharmacyonnet - Introduction

E-commerce sector is growing exponentially. From daily used FMCG products to electronics, from clothes to valuables like gold or diamond, everything is available online. And now, all thanks to the e-pharmacy platforms, even medicines are available online easily. While over the counter medicines can be ordered without any prescription, for other medications, one just has to upload the prescription and order the medicines.

Owing to the e-pharmacy platforms, world-class medicine and health care products have now become easily available across the country. With this very aim of delivering quality healthcare products to every possible nook and corner of the country, Pharmacyonnet was founded. Now the company sells a wide range of products for healthcare, wellness, personal care, mother and baby care and even household products like groceries, beverages and snacks.

Pharmacyonnet - Industry Details

With mobile and internet services being available across the country even in many remote places, the Government of India is taking many e-health initiatives like online medical consultation and facility for exchange of patient information pan-India. Owing to such initiatives, growing health awareness and people becoming more and more accustomed to online shopping, the e-pharmacy segment is growing fast.

India currently has over 850,000 independent pharmacy retail stores that are able to meet only 60% of the total domestic therapeutic demand. These traditional Brick and Mortar retail pharmacies are currently responsible for 99% of the pharmaceutical sales annually with online pharmacy contributing to only 1% of the total therapeutic sales.

The e-pharmacy segment is expected to see a growth of 20% CAGR and cross the $3 billion mark by 2024.

Pharmacyonnet - Founder

Gyaan Dixit is the founder of Pharmacyonnet. He has completed MBA from Pune and started working at a reputed pharmaceutical company. In 2014, he quit his job and started Dreamz Nutrition & Pharmaceuticals Pvt. Ltd (DNPL) along with his elder brother who had a good experience in pharmaceuticals & Nutrition. Today DNPL turnover is around Rs.12 million and manufactures 22 products among which AgeDeifier is the hot selling cake.

Wondering how I could provide the best of products to everyone living in India & what can I do to make healthcare retailing more advance and approachable, my quest led the way to Pharmacyonnet.com in the year 2017,” asserts Gyaan

Pharmacyonnet - Product

Pharmacyonnet is an online healthcare store where a wide range of health-related products are available. The site delivers over 10,000 products including organic grocery, imported & gourmet food items, household items, mother & baby range, personal care products for men & women, wellness items related to sports & fitness, health supplements, anti-aging products and variety of herbal & organic products.

So why to queue up outside shops when you can avail all your medications & health products, with a click, sitting at home and that too loaded with exciting offers & amazing discounts.

Pharmacyonnet - The Idea and Starting Up

The idea struck Gyaan, while he was working on his own venture Dreamz Nutrition and Pharmaceuticals Pvt. Ltd. with his brother Gaurav Dixit. It was his vision to provide healthcare products to the remotest areas of the country. He wanted to provide the facility where one can provide for the healthcare needs of his loved ones even when he is not near them.  

The idea behind Pharmacyonnet.com is to bridge this gap by providing you a hassle-free solution to look after your family & friends and give you a sigh of relief even when you are far from them.

Pharmacyonnet - Revenue Model

The company generates revenue by applying marketplace fee on every order.    

Pharmacyonnet - Challenges

‘Never Quit’ is the mantra that Gyaan follows while taking up challenges. Though doing business in India is still a hard nut to crack & being an honest and loyal business it is even more depressing to see the wrong business getting more benefits than the deserving one. But still fighting against all the odds and finding our way towards our destination is always what we are working for. Forming a team having adequate skills was one of the major challenges faced by the company.

My inspiration is the people & family associated with us & when we see so much responsibility on us we always try to fight much harder with all the positive approach.

Pharmacyonnet - Competitors

As said by Gyaan, the company has many competitors. There are many online platforms that are selling everything and trying to attract consumers with impractical discounts and offers. But his aim is to build Pharmacyonnet as a specialized brand for healthcare products.

The company is working towards incorporating imported and revolutionary healthcare products into the portal, which will surely give it an edge over the competitors.

Now we are like a supermarket or say Super pharmacy where you can buy everything related to health. If we find something which is good for health then we definitely go for that.

Pharmacyonnet - Work Culture

According to Gyaan, well-disciplined & focused work culture is the most crucial factors for healthy working. The company takes utmost care to have a positive environment, good lighting & seating arrangements, proper desks & personal space for the employees.  

Besides, it conducts regular group discussions & debated to bring the best out of the employees. To keep the employees motivated the company also organizes surprise treats and socializing on every small achievement. Awards & applaud are given to employees on every breakthrough performance.  

Perseverance, skills & loyalty are major parameters on which we judge any candidate, but it is also a fact that you can’t get 100% desirable candidates. It’s important to give an opportunity to the most appealing candidate than wait for the right one.

Pharmacyonnet - Future Plans

Our strategy is to sync the existing health segment & became the biggest platform for selling health products online in India.

The company’s future plans include -

  • Opening storefronts for the offline market by the mid of 2020.
  • Start manufacturing of generic, branded & herbal medicines.
  • Starting prescription medicine service based on pin codes.
  • Starting a free of cost service where the customers can find their nearby doctor based on pin codes.
  • Introducing Android, iOS and Windows version of the Pharmacyonnet app.  

Pharmacyonnet - Founder's Advice

Invest time in making not just the product but a brand. A brand is what helps you earn a winning difference in the heart of customers. For efficient brand positioning, you need to give what is never given before i.e. the best ever quality.
