www.auroville.com – is an online platform which distributes products from Auroville all over India and worldwide to 246 countries.Thirty-five commercial units of Auroville display more than 3500 products. On average 26,000 items are shipped every year to our customers all around the world.
The team of Aurovilians engaged with auroville.com takes great care that our website and our connected social media reflect the spirit and ideals of Auroville.
We are offering the products of the commercial units and tell their stories. For example the motivation behind fair trade incense, the production process of organic herbal supplements, the design process of handcrafted wooden toys. All of these aspects are essential parts of the products and these connections should not be left out. We use social media like Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest and info mailers which we send to our customers. The emphasis is gradually increased to our blog where we report on products and events in Auroville.
Launched in 2008,
auroville.com began with books, spirulina, jam and body care products. At the
launch, we offered only about 20% of the products that are on display now. In
September 2016, auroville.com changed its looks as well as its underlying
software. The site is now mobile responsive and products can be ordered with
ease from mobile devices.
auroville.com supports four currencies and there are several payment options for our customers - credit/debit card, PayPal, bank transfer and cheque collection/ money orders. Netbanking will be added soon and international courier services will follow.
A substantial part of our profits is used to further the development of Auroville and achieve its aspirations.
