The biggest online retailer in India, Flipkart, claims that its Big Billion Day sale has got bigger and better in the latest iteration. For starters, the sale will stretch over five days. Each day will be dedicated to a specific category. On 13th, you will get deals on fashion. Expect some great discounts on premium clothing brands. Next day will be all about home appliances including refrigerators and washing machines. Mobile devices such as tablets and accessories will get price cuts on 15, followed by electronics and automotive. The final day will be dedicated to book aficionados.
Domestic as well as International brands participating in this sale advertised as “abhi nahin toh kabhi nahin”. Unlike last year though, the sale will only be accessible via Flipkart’s mobile app. Sorry desktop users, you will have to put up with a small screen to avail the killer deals. Myntra will also join in for the celebrations. As many of our readers would already know, Myntra has already done away with its website to concentrate on its mobile app efforts. So download the Flipkart and Myntra mobile apps, and keep your wishlist ready before October 13.
Last year’s sale, wasn’t rosy for all the consumers. No doubt, there were many great offers on televisions, smartphones, and even apparels. However, many had to fight their way through technical glitches to grab these deals. Then, there were instances where a few sellers failed to process the orders.
Flipkart is prepping to avoid goof-ups this time around though. The company has been offering training programs to its sellers to gear up for the sale. The initiative includes training on handling inventory and manpower in crunch situations.
