To all Micromax fans, Snapdeal has been accepting the registrations for the latest Micromax Canvas Spark 3 from 7th April at Rs.4,999 only. The sale will commence tomorrow, 7th April, 2015 at around 12 P.M. Let’s have a look at the features of the smartphone :
Top-level smartphone players like Samsung, Micromax and Intex are turning into the helpful ground for new organization, generally Chinese, participants to India. The new organizations are actually creating groups to make appropriate way to get into the quickest developing marketplace.
New Player Planning to Launch in India
Aside from all the main on going smart phone company, LeEco, the most recent upcoming company from China is about to set up shop in India, and has already hired its head working officer as Atul Jain, from Samsung, and has additionally connected Anish Kapoor from the Korean mammoth as its head of cellular phones business. This Chinese organization is also interested in cars, video creation, content and eCommerce. The organization is the biggest players in Africa, and is planning to enter India by April, with their special launch of the Itel brand of mobile at first.
How smartphone is taking over the online business
There is around 50 smattphone brands launched in India last year, which is more than three times the earlier year, that really pulls in a large number of group. Remembering that, the organization is expecting their immense success for their brand as well. They are putting best of knowledge into their strategy, and that is the reason they have employed a mix of top individuals from all brands. The Business strategy Of LeEco, by in the business, Chinese organization are making cautious steps while entering India and are so, they are beginning their business as online first. As they are additionally drawing closer towards launching a Television in India soon, that is the reason they just hired a head from LG company as well. If their drawing nearer strategy will work out, they can give extreme competition to their rival in future.
Snapdeal.com, a Delhi based online marketplace is one of the largest online shopping portals of India. Snapdeal is one of the Titan in true sense. While India is emerging as an arena for these titans, it is important to maintain discrete U.S.P.s and best service. In ecommerce, most of the services are more or less same. A customer searched an item, places an order and wait for it to be delivered & return if the product is not good.
However there are a few key points such as delivery time, delivery charges, condition of goods while delivering, after sales etc, which are generally used as differentiating factors for the online shopping portals. Snapdeal is now focusing in a direction which can for sure bring it at the top of preferred shopping destination in very short time.
What Snapdeal is doing these days?
Snapdeal is following two strategy at the same time. First strategy is to give Free Shipping. Earlier it was giving Free Shipping to these categories only - beauty & personal care, daily needs products etc. but now it has expanded itself to various categories and products. Nearly 60-70% of the products have a Free Shipping tag on them. Amazon charges around Rs.50 for shipping (except beauty products) for order below Rs.499 only. Flipkart’s charges varies from Free on books to upto Rs.100 on shipping. This tag of ‘Free Shipping’ on products listed on Snapdeal is an addon ‘offer’ in itself as no matter what a customer thinks about, shipping cost is very important factor which is considered while making a purchase online.
Second reason is more exciting than first, Snapdeal is now delivering products in 1 day Or within 24-30 hours to be precise that too without an extra charge. Great, right? It is, the reason is – while Amazon & Flipkart are charging Rs. 99 for this option, Snapdeal is giving it for Free. Hence, while shopping through Snapdeal a person may say upto Rs.130 in a single click on most of the product. A customer will obviously prefer a product over Amazon & Snapdeal with this facility. We hope that soon Flipkart, Amazon and other etailers notice this and start redirecting their money in the same way.
How Snapdeal is affording this cost?
We have no confirmation but as per our shopping analysts (deal hunters), Snapdeal may be adjusting the commission it earns on the sales by using this. Or it may be burning its funding in the process. Whatever the reason is, customers are getting benefitted and Snapdeal will get the most important passive marketing way, word of mouth, in no time with this amalgamation.
Just for info : Yepme, an Indian etailer charges Rs.50 to Rs.150 for Indian shoppers as shipping charges while its international branch provides FREE Shipping and FREE Returns for UK, US shoppers! You can see the difference by visiting Yepme.com and Yepmeworld.com .. Absurd..!
Following the pattern of Flipkart, Snapdeal too launched a ‘Lite’ version for the smartphones just like Flipkart Lite. The announcement came a few days after the launch of the Flipkart Lite version for smartphones. According to Anand Chandrasekaran, Snapdeal’s chief product officer :” Is there a Snapdeal.com experience that’s 85% faster? Introducing Snap-Lite (across all mobile browsers).”
These ‘Lite’ war came just after a short-term App war for which company literally pushed and compelled customers to buy ‘only’ from App if they were to get any good offer. The indication, if seen ahead of these ‘Lite’ site launches, is clear that targeting App is not sufficient, its smartphone they have to target.
The ecommerce companies know that they heavily draw a large amount of the traffic and sale (sometimes most of it) through smartphones and the lighter versions of their sites with app-like features will give an ultimate boost to the acceptance and the compulsion of the app-download would be replaced by the option of bookmarking.
However, Snapdeal’s Lite version is not that much compatible with the app-like features as Flipkart Lite is. It seems that it lacks an ability to add a shortcut on the home screen, push notifications, and offline functionality.
According to Chandrasekaran “We want to be present across all platforms. It is our customer’s choice to shop from whichever platform they are comfortable in,”. This is not the first time Snapdeal is favouring the ‘option-based’ shopping experience for shoppers, earlier, Mr. Kunal (CEO of Snapdeal) said that it would not be a good idea to go app-only and it have only helped Snapdeal to go better with the decisions of the rival site of going App-only.
Samsung may have had a lot of competition recently in smartphone sphere but it have its fixed market in India. A lot of customers still prefer Samsung over other companies like Xiaomi, Lenovo, Motorola etc no matter what they are giving in terms of specifications, offers and discount.

Flipkart is waging a war against all the heavily priced products with its app only sale, ‘Big Billion Day’ Sale, where it is expected to get around half a billion dollar of GMV to be sold during the 5 day sale festival. Last month it has been estimated to have gathered around $200 million in GMV.
The Big Billion day has been an app only agenda of Flipkart in the purview of getting maximum number of sales and visitors coming from mobile. Anyways, the firm grip on the customers for purchase has been made with the eloquent discount figures on various products and categories.
The hopeful figure of $500 million is very large for Flipkart in light of the other hefty sales on leaders of ecommerce like Snapdeal, Amazon and more. With all the big players competing against one another, its really very hard to get maximum revenue or to exceed the expectations of the investors. However, it would be delightful to see as in who will get the largest bite of the sales pie.
Kindly note that GMV stands for Gross Merchandise Value which is the value of the goods sold on an ecommerce platform without factoring in discounts and returns, these discounts and returns are not generally disclosed in publicly.
