The inability to 'touch and feel' is a grouse for most ecommerce customers and Kautage is trying to solve just that. It facilitates by collaborating with local delivery businesses and takes a customer's cart to them so they can touch, feel and choose the product he or she wants to purchase. Founded in 2017, Kautage claims to be profitable right from the first month of its operations.
