No more series A crunch?

There’s been much hype about how startups are not able to raise funds beyond seed round and that VCs are not putting in more funds when it comes to e-commerce sites. But it appears that VCs are back to funding e-commerce sites. In April 2013, SkoolShop, an e-commerce site run by Occasion Kommerce Pvt. Ltd., raised funding in a Series A round from Blume Ventures and angel investors including Sunil Kalra, Srikant Shastri, Vikas Choudhary and Puneet Deora.

CaratLane Trading Pvt Ltd, which runs an online diamond jewellery portal CaratLane.com, raised 15 million in Series C funding round from Tiger Global.

Perhaps the $50 million raised by Snapdeal in a Series C round earlier in April 2013 have restored faith among VCs in e-commerce segment?
