Flipkart got a spam alert, product priced double than its MRP.

On a fine Wednesday of 3rd June, Flipkart got a lightning thunder when a user Mr. Mani Sankar Sen pointed out an issue in a product posted by the poster boy of online shopping a.k.a Flipkart. Have a look at the pic below and you can easily point out the anomaly which got Flipkart into controversies, again.

What is the whole case?

The case was about a women sandals 'Canvera Wedges' which shows a MRP on back as Rs.399 however the price listed on the site was same i.e. Rs.399 strangely after a 50% discount. The MRP stated for the product was Rs.799 on Flipkart but the true price was clearly visible on the back of the sandal.


The Reaction was outrageous as the company got severe negative reviews from users. However Flipkart came back to apologies for the whole incident and stated that it has removed and banned the seller on its platform. This case has really let down the trust of so called 'SALE' on online sites and has given a very bad impression of Flipkart. 

Anyways, Kudos to Flipkart on reacting this much fast over this issue.

Thumbs up with Snapdeal.com !! 30% of Snapdeal sellers are now using mobile..


According to Senior Vice President (Product Management) of Snapdeal.com, Mr. Ankit Khanna, –  

"We are continuously working on enriching the experience for our buyers and sellers. The Seller Zone App is one of our key initiatives for simplifying the process of listing products on our platform thereby facilitating sellers’ business operations. In the last 6 months, we have seen a higher rate of activity on the Seller Zone App vis-à-vis activity through the PC and we expect that 70% of our sellers will start using the mobile app actively in the coming 3 -4 months. Mobile is a vital contributor to the growth of ecommerce and we are creating life changing experiences for our sellers through newer apps on the mobile platform."

Snapdeal.com recently announced that a large number of sellers i.e. 30,000 out of a hundred thousand are now active users on Seller Zone app. It is in a way a user control panel for sellers of Snapdeal controlled by the thumb.yes


Seller Zone App is a management dashboard for the sellers of Snapdeal.com where sellers use to list their products online in order to sell them. According to Snapdeal ; The Seller Zone App is the " India’s first ever mobile managed online marketplace application for sellers to list products on Snapdeal.com."

Now the question arises as in what kind of use this whole application launched by Snapdeal is of use. Well, it is more or less like the kind of user friendly platform which ecommerce sites tries to pull for users to give a brilliant experience of shopping. With such a liquid listing experience, the sellers would be more interested in selling through such Snapdeal rather than a complicated portal. This ultimately results in more number of sellers listing more number of products which in turn gives a competition resulting in more discounts (and shoppers love it). 

To sum it up, Snapdeal has an understanding of the importance of caring for the sellers who ultimately are an another form of its customers.

Snapdeal, India Post will work together to bring weavers and artisans online.. a great initiative, Indeed!!!!


While other ecommerce companies are fighting to allure customers through discount and coupons, Snapdeal is actually acting like a true responsible online portal which is following the motto of bringing sellers to the buyers online. This time the sellers are the brilliant and shinning stars of Indian craftsmanship, weavers & artisans, which are overly demanded yet severely less paid. 

The joint step is taken by India Post and Snapdeal are planning to work together in order to bring thousands of weavers and artisans from Varanasi in front of the world through its website. Before this Snapdeal has helped in developing a village in many aspects which in turn tagged itself with a name of "Snapdeal.com nagar" 

Snapdeal CEO and co-founder Kunal Bahl said in a statement.

"This is an endeavour by Snapdeal and India Post to empower local artisans, small and medium entrepreneurs to sustain their livelihood by providing a platform to popularise their indigenous products, through this association, weavers will be able to access the national audience by listing their products on Snapdeal, at negligible cost, ” 

The beauty of the association lies in the amalgamation of the sponsorship of Indian post and the huge reach of online marketplace Snapdeal.com.

Mr. Bahl quoted.

Through this partnership, Snapdeal will take the Banarasi weaves to customers in all corners of the country and extend this platform to include more weavers and artisans of the country. India has a number of unique and highly specialized art forms and weaves. However, with the fast changing fashion trends and readily available products we are losing out on this rich heritage. If we don’t act now, soon the rich designs and weaves will be extinct,” 

 Snapdeal.com has started a test phase in Varanasi post offices to enable local weavers to sell on its platform. A great step indeed! 



Snapdeal is selling one Hero Moto Corp bike per minute..Now Mahindra has jumped in race too..

According to the sales reports generated by Snapdeal.com, there are nearly 700 bikes which were sold in less than 70 hours. The record also shows that during the peak of the sale, Snapdeal was selling almost one bike per minute. Hero Moto Corp understood the power and reach of online retailing and entered into the battle with no one to compete with in the category as it was first of its own type in the category.

Tony Navin, Senior Vice President, Snapdeal said,

“We are happy to have Hero MotoCorp on board as our partner. Hero MotoCorp is a legendary brand that has provided mobility to millions of Indians with finely engineered two-wheelers for three decades now. The astounding success of the tie up is a testament to Snapdeal.com’s pioneering efforts to bring the automobiles category on the e-commerce domain, which provides Automobile brands instant access to 30 million users across 5000+ cities and towns in India.”

Actually this is not the first time any vehicle manufacturing company has entered into the ecommerce industry as Mahindra allowed buyers to prebook a Scorpio on eBay India, (now on Snapdeal too) but book, not buy.surprise The models sold as part of the Hero launch offer on Snapdeal include the Splendor, Xtreme, Centuro, Optima, Passion, Glamour, Ignitor, Hunk, and the Pleasure scooter. 

bike beech rahe hain onlline

Anyways, we as Indians have a cling in our mind that "test drive to banta hai" (test drive has to be there) which is a reflection of good sense of shopping we have. It is a great initiative by Hero as if a customer has made a decision of purchasing a bike, he/she will do it without thinking much. Hero is also giving all benefit like warranty and after-sales service, just like its offline buyers get.

It has been a year, and Indian Post has been relentlessly serving COD 'Cash On Delivery' option made by Ecommerce Giant of India. 

Within a year of joining the e-commerce, India Post has transacted business of Rs 280 crore for Indian Companies like Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon, Naaptol, Telebrands Flipkart, Snapdeal, Amazon, Shopclues and Homeshop18. It is expected to increase further since GOSF 2014 is on its way.

Cash on Delivery

This exclusive behavior or tendency of people to take and pay at the same time when mixed with the most esteemed and dedicated post service of India, India Post, a combination appeared which grasp the monetary benefit of the whole e-market, benefiting Indian Post.

The reason for this huge amount of collection of India Post is because officials and employees of India Post are very much aware of the rural and semi-urban's complicated Indian addresses.

“India Post collected over Rs 280 crore from consumers and gave it to e-commerce firms, since CoD facility was started in December 2013. The department with its huge network can serve as the best agency for not just delivering products, but also collecting money,”

After Snapdeal its Flipkart.. See how this person was trapped in poor delivery system by Flipkart.com

flipkart doing problems
Earlier we have had seen a controversial delivery by Snapdeal where a person received a Vim bar and a brick instead of Samsung Galaxy he ordered.
A guy from Mysore, Karnataka got into shock when he found out that his parcel via Flikart.com feels too light and could be empty. He immediately made a video and posted it on his Facebook page.
Have a look. 





The reason for these kind of problems is the mismatch in updation of supply chain system and growth of large ecommerce company. 

It is very important for e-retailers like Flipkart, Snapdeal etc to make their logistics absolutely error free. More or less like the brilliant Dabba-wala delivery system of Mumbai.
