The Indian economy is undergoing a big change in the way consumers/companies interact with businesses. The internet is driving some of these behaviors and convenience is at the heart of some of the changes. New businesses/models are springing up, some of which were unheard of before, or some of which are an online version of the older business models.

Regardless of the business model, during the course of any discussion on the financial health of a company, the topic inevitably goes to the revenue number (or top line) and the bottom line (net profit). While operational efficiencies drive the bottom line figure, the top line is determined by the kind of pricing models utilize.
