Yu Yureka flash sale was set to begin at 2.00PM on Amazon India, where the company made available 30,000 units of the handset. The company’s flash sale was over in six seconds, but unlike previous times, many registered buyers could not see the reverse timer on the e-commerce site, nor did they get the option to buy the device at 2.00PM.

Currently, the site only mentions that the sale is currently in progress. This is in stark contrast with previous sales, where a reverse timer was displayed leading to the commencement of the sale, and when the sale began, it also showed the percentage of handsets that were claimed. After the device went out of stock, the site allowed registered buyers to join the Waitlist to still stand a chance to buy the device.

However, this time many users complained that they could not see the reverse timer page at all. Registered buyers facing this glitch took to Twitter to express their inability to buy the device. This was not an issue with everyone, as many proclaimed their joy in buying the device as well. Yu had earlier mentioned that users who do not get the device in their carts in a flash sale, are automatically registered for the next sale. Probably, this issue could be prevalent only for those old registered users. We have reached out to Amazon India for comment regarding this glitch.
