The Flipkart this year has a new campaign which claims to give a customer more in less money. It is released an interesting ad about the new campaign for the Big Billion sale.
Flipkart’s annual Big Billion Day sale takes place just around the festival season in the country. While the e-commerce company has seen huge demands during the sales, the last two editions haven’t been without glitches, ultimately affecting customers. Many complained that prices of some of products were increased to MRP instead of the previous selling price, to reflect a bigger discount. Also, people struggled to get through orders due to app and website crashes.
That said, Flipkart is looking to have a grander sale this year. Just yesterday we reported that Apple and Flipkart are partnering for online retail of the iPhone 7, which is launching in India on October 7. Under the deal, Flipkart will source iPhones directly from Apple, unlike earlier when it used to source them from third-party retailers in a marketplace model. Flipkart has a new microsite that indicates the iPhone 7 is coming soon. Right after the Big Billion Sale ends on October 6, the iPhone 7 sale from October 7 could be its own kind of a Big Billion Sale on Flipkart.

Rival Amazon, meanwhile, is also going to compete with Flipkart s Big Billion Day sale with its Great Indian Festival from October 1 to October 5. Like Flipkart, Amazon is too going to offer some big discounts and schemes on a wide range of products. It will be an intense battle between the two e-commerce giants, but for customers it will be a win-win situation.
