Google India’s Great Online Shopping Festival (GOSF) is back. The online shopping festival will again be a three-day affair kicking off on December 10 and going through till December 12.
The GOSF site also mentions that there will be a pre-party on November 25. There is no word on what the pre-party implies, but if were to hazard a guess, Google could reveal what buyers can expect from the shopping festival on that day. If last year’s GOSF is anything to go by, Google will again partner close to 300 retailers selling everything from shoes, clothes, jewelry, apparel, travel packages, books, kids wear to gadgets and computer peripherals.
Despite a stuttering start last year, GOSF received an overwhelming response from buyers as there were many deals to choose from. According to reports, visitors during the sale double to two million. This year however could be the biggest ever, considering the kind of response online shopping festivals have got so far.
While marred with glitches, Flipkart’s Big Billion Day sale, as well as Amazon and Snapdeal’s shopping festivals got a huge response from buyers. Flipkart revealed that on its Big Billion Day sale, it net $100 million in 10 hours.
