Amazon.in recently announced its Great Indian Festival for the festive season that will happen between October 1st to 5th, a day before the sale starts on Flipkart and Snapdeal. The Great Indian Festival that is themed Tyohar Bade Dilwala will offer deals on popular products from smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs, musical instruments, stationery products, books, baby products, toys, clothing & accessories, shoes to beauty products, pet products, gourmet foods, gardening accessories and more.
As we know, Flipkart and Snapdeal will host their sales between 2 and 6 October. Besides these three players, other marketplace entities such as Alibaba-backed Paytm and Shopclues, too, will be holding their big-bang festival season sales alongside their large peers in the first couple of weeks of next month in order to cash in on the growing enthusiasm of online buyers in recent years.
Amazon.in offers guaranteed delivery services including one-day, two-day, same day, scheduled, Sunday and Morning Deliveries in several cities. Prime members get 30 minutes early access to Top deals.
Speaking on this occasion, Amit Agarwal, VP and Country Head, Amazon India, said:
“This year we recognize and celebrate the big heartedness that underlies festivities and have themed the Great Indian Festival as Tyohar Bade Dilwala. We are delighted to celebrate this with our customers as much as with the entire ecosystem of our sellers, vendors and partners to bring festive cheer all over the country. These marathon 120 hours of the event mark our continuing commitment to work closely with our partners and together bring the biggest sale yet for our customers, with the best ever shopping experience powered by Prime.”
However, the moot question is, will the online customers get huge discount offers on numerous products from these e-commerce companies this time? According to analysts, this year’s festival sales may be impacted by recent guidelines by DIPP that bar e-commerce players from doling out discounts.
