Why Amazon is doing this?

The answer lies in the fact that some fraud customers have exploited the excellent service to an extent that the companies have restricted themselves within rules and regulations. Here are a few news which would explain the plight of these etailers :

Flipkart Investigates Online Shopping Fraud Leading To Arrest of 2 Techies

Hyderabad Man Reportedly Dupes Flipkart of Over Rs. 20 Lakhs Using Fake Goods

Man who cheated e-tailers Flipkart, Amazon of Rs 36 lakh arrested

These kind of activities are the reason why millions of shoppers are chopped off from various excellent services from etailers.

This is not the first time Amazon is implementing No-Return policy on a category. From baby, personal care products, jewellery, software & video games etc. Amazon do not refund. Not long ago, in October 2015, Flipkart introduced a returns policy that lets customers return a mobile phone if they are not satisfied with it within 10 days with full refund on the amount paid. According to Snapdeal’s return policy : Electronic items: We require a document from the brand/OEM’s service centre confirming that the delivered item was defective. We will carry out a quality check to validate the complaint before processing any request for refund/replacement. Returns/replacements will be accepted for only those items which are found to be faulty/ defective.”

No more Smartphones – Gionee India

India surprises big businesses a lot in terms of revenue, and it will continue to surprise, only thing needed is to understand the right customers to target with a brand name in hand. The same happened with Gionee when it churned out its time while trying to catch Indian smartphone market while other big player were already present in the market. The market has been dominated by big players like Samsung, Micromax, Apple (in luxury category) etc. Hence while re-strategizing the whole market approach, Gionee has finally announced the hold on the manufacturing of the cheap smartphones as of now.

According to the Arvind Vohra, Gionee India CEO :

At Gionee, we don’t want to make cheap smartphones as they end up becoming smart feature phones. We have a separate category for feature phones and we would love to expand, innovate in this category, If we enter this category, we are changing the basic specifications of a smartphone and this would not be appreciated by the consumer. We will lose the customer who bought the device to have a smartphone experience as his experience will not be up to the mark.

Some might think that the decision is not good, but as a matter of fact there is still a very large number of population in India which do not show much interest in so called smartphones as they are a bit complicated to handle. The target is the set of the customers looking for the kind of the phone with the core competency of the high quality calling only (which once NOKIA had).

Gionee is focusing on more and more physical presence in the country. The company have around 32,000 retails stores in India with a large number of service centers in India. The sales of the company has been growing since last year. According to the company, it is generating a revenue of Rs.150-200 crores on monthly basis.

The company had a revenue of around Rs.2,800 crores last year and is planning to have somewhere around a Billion Dollar this year. The company is planning to expand its services to around 50,000 outlets in the country by the end of 2015 as a part of physical expansion process.

Pile of smart phones

Indian smartphone market down by 15% in 2015. Micromax is laying low this time.

Pile of smart phones

India has emerged as the largest (in some case second largest) potential market of smartphones. But based on the results of the reports of Cybermedia Research, Smartphone sales in India has gone down by 7% in the first financial quarter this year. Speculations says that it is due to the change in duty implementation and recent restrictions of supplies from China.

Lets take the look at the complete smartphone market :

The whole mobile market is down by 15% to 53 million units in Jan-Mar compared to Oct-December period. The most intersecting fact about the impart of mobile handset in India is that 37% were smartphones. So before even discussing it further, lets take a scenario. Suppose do you have a smartphone bought by you a few days ago, would you buy another one in coming week?

The result of this decline is basically the law of demand and supply:


Smartphones in India have been bought by consumers as an urge of the smartphone over once traditional keypad mobiles. Other customers are those who wished to have a change of smartphones just to get 'with the pace of the technology'. And remaining are those who quench their thirst of deals and exclusive offers while shopping smartly buying exactly what they need. But after it the customers saturates him/herself for a few years to go till he/she buy another one. Recently, India developed a gap between the requirement of handset and the availability of them in the market. Now the gap is filled upto a large extent and it will again take a few months till the gap widens.

CMR Lead Analyst Telecoms Research Faisal Kawoosa said in a statement:

“With major announcements of new handsets and entry of some new brands happening in a big way in Q4, 2014, there wasn’t really something very exciting in the market for customers that could push up sales in Q1, 2015, Samsung’s ability to add to its portfolio in all the major price segments within smartphones by launching new models in each of the entry-level, mid-range and high end segments of the market contributed to this increase. 

Micromax, at second spot, registered a decline in market share in smartphone segment to 16.2 percent in the said period from 17.8 percent in the previous quarter. (because it is one of the king of smartphone below Rs.10,000 market.

Micromax strategy is wrong. said  CMR Telecoms Analyst Karn Chauhan:

"e-Retailing works effectively for a brand aiming for 0-5 percent or 5-10 percent of the market share and those without a wide portfolio like Xiaomi and OnePlus.

But, if you are Micromax, having a double-digit market share of middle to higher order price segment handsets, trying to replicate what Xiaomi and OnePlus are doing isn’t a very good idea.”

It would only take a few months when India again gets the same growth as it had last year.
