“Customers are continuously looking to upgrade to the next new-age model, but disposing off the previously owned models has always been a concern. The Flipkart Exchange Program offers customers a holistic solution to the whole process of looking for buyers of their old products and buy new products,” Ankit Nagori, Chief Business Officer, Flipkart, said.
The offers will be applicable on Flipkart’s app, Flipkart Lite and desktop. The company also promises a bunch of deals on a variety of products during these two days. It will be interesting to see how the likes of Amazon India and Snapdeal respond to this.
