Couple of weeks back I had written regarding a goofed up case of two tablets, exclusively launched on two different websites. Such things happen between overzealous rivals. But sometimes, things go out of hand when you start competing with yourself.

Such seems to be the case with Flipkart, which has just come out of the big billion business/dare/scare/whatever you prefer to call it. Though I felt that Flipkart did a commendable job, managing the deliveries of the tsunami of orders on The Big Billion Day, internally, it seems to have implemented a sales algorithm which contradicts itself and shows flopkart flipkart in poor light.

A listing of Canon EOS 1200D appears on its website with stock lens kit for Rs. 27,196 whereas they have also listed a Canon EOD 1200D with stock lens and a 55-250 mm lens for Rs. 26,500. Both listed side by side.

Absursd!! But true. Here is the link(might be corrected by the time you see it hence the screenshot below). It will take a person with abilities to overlook details and/or understand simple arithmatic to go for the costlier deal.

It could mean that:

Either the double lens kit package has some manufacturing defects

or

Flipkart simply goofed up.

There cannot be any other explanation. Both the listing are by WS Retail (Flipkarts own listing, not a third party seller listing)

Wake up flipkart. Unless you do not intend to have many more successful Big Billion Days.

Couple of days back I posted about the upcoming big sale day on flipkart called as the Big Billion Day. Today is the day and if you were not ready for it, you missed buying Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 for 1400 Rs….Yes 1400 rs, a discount of 90 %. News papers also list(via flipkart ad) that they will have 2TB ADATA HDD for 600 rs(90% discount). There are lots of other discount offers and exchange offers which are very good. You can have Moto X 1st Gen for 18000 or Moto G second gen for 9000(under exchanges), apple macbook for 49999 and lots of other offers in variety of products. There are various catagories of offers like limited stock, limited time ,crazy deals etc.

Another surprising advert in the papers is by snapdeal which says that for others it may be a big day but for them its an ordinary day. An on this ordinary day, they choose to sell apple iphone 4s for 14600, iphone 5s for 25000, Samsung Galaxy S5 for 26000, Canon EOS 1200D for 14000 and many more similar offers. Snapdeal has listed these day under the Diwali Bumper Sale and it keeps on changing hourly with limited stock.

Hurry up and buy the product on your wishlist while these e-tailers are willing to be looted.

Its bigger then the Kumbh Mela. Its bigger then the world cup. Seems lie its supposed to be bigger than anything we’ve seen. But what is it??

It is some kind of a big sale being organised by Flipkart on october 6th 2014. As per the website, you need to keep your profile updates, and add your favourite items to wish list to get timely offer notifications. It also recommends downloading flipkart app(I guess the event has to do something with buying on mobile app, or atleast the app will help you get timely notifications.)

Its going to be for the first time in the country, never before in the history, as per the tv camaign.(I guess this kind of promotional event has been held previously in other countries, most probably the US.)

Flipkart sure knows how to heat up the ecommerce market.

Whatever it be, just be ready. May be postpone online sopping a bit. You never know how big an offer you might get on flipkart.

Watch promo on youtube.

Sellers loss, buyers gain!! We buyers are not going to show sympathy for a change. Come monsoon sellers come up with variety of Sale advertisements and we stand to gain from it. Higher the percentage of discount, Fashion Salemore the possibility of stock clearance and this fundamentals have driven ecommerce websites to offer huge discounts.
