    [UPDATED] How big was the Big Billion Day?

    [UPDATE]

    If you're a Flipkart customer, you must have gone through some amount of agony while making purchases during the Big Billion Day. Keeping true to its reputation and philosophy of great customer service, Flipkart went ahead and apologized to everyone. When was the last time you saw an organisation saying sorry to their customers for not living up to the promises?

    Dear Customer,

    Yesterday was a big day for us. And we really wanted it to be a great day for you. But at the end of the day, we know that your experience was less than pleasant. We did not live up to the promises we made and for that we are really and truly sorry.

    It took enormous effort from everyone at Flipkart, many months of preparation and pushing our capabilities and systems to the limit to be able to create this day. We were looking at fulfilling the dreams of millions of Indian consumers through deals and offers we had painstakingly put together for months.

    And though we saw unprecedented interest in our products and traffic like never before, we also realized that we were not adequately prepared for the sheer scale of the event. We didn't source enough products and deals in advance to cater to your requirements. To add to this, the load on our server led to intermittent outages, further impacting your shopping experience on our site.

    An unprecedented 1.5 million people shopped at Flipkart yesterday. While we stand humbled by the sheer faith that such a large number of customers have shown in us, we are unhappy that we were unable to live up to the expectations of millions more who wanted to buy from us yesterday.

    And this is not acceptable to us.

    Delighting you, and every single one of our customers, is absolutely the top most priority for Flipkart and we have worked very hard over the last seven years to earn your trust. Yesterday, we failed that trust. We have learnt some valuable lessons from this and have started working doubly hard to address all the issues that cropped up during this sale.

    Price Changes As we were preparing various deals and promotional pricing in the lead up to the sale, the pricing of several products got ​changed to their non-discounted rates for a few hours​. We realise that this breaks the trust our customers have put in us. We are truly sorry for this and will ensure that this never happens again.

    Out-of-stock Issues We ran out of the stock for many products within a few minutes (and in some cases, seconds) of the sale going live. For example, most of our special deals were sold out as soon as they went live. We had ensured availability, anywhere from hundreds to a few lakh units for various products, but it was nowhere near the actual demand. We promise to plan much better for future promotions and ensure that we minimise the out-of-stock issues.Cancellations We had large number of people buying specific products simultaneously. This led to some instances of an order getting over-booked for a product that was sold out just a few seconds ago. We are working round-the-clock to ensure availability of additional units for these products and will do our level best to ensure that we minimise any cancellations.Website Issues ​We realise that the shopping experience for many of you was frustrating due to errors and unavailability of the website at times. We had deployed nearly 5000 servers and had prepared for 20 times the traffic growth - but the volume of traffic at different times of the day was much higher than this. We are continuing to significantly scale up all our back end systems so that we do a much, much better job next time.

    Everything that we have achieved at Flipkart is purely on the basis of our customer's trust and faith. This is why we come to work each day and continue to remain extremely passionate about building the best possible customer experience for Indian consumers. We failed to live up to this promise yesterday and would like to apologise once again to every single customer for our failure.

    Thank you. Sachin and Binny

    It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

    The famous American author and humorist, Mark Twain sums the ecommerce war in India pretty well in the above statement.

    As a market leader in the Indian ecommerce industry, Flipkart has redefined 'big' in many ways in the year 2014. Be it the big acquisition of Myntra (for an estimated $300 million), or the big funding of $1 billion, nothing of this scale was witnessed before. Riding on the same wave, the ecommerce giant had announced the biggest sale day for 6th October. It was called 'The Big Billion Day' and concluded few hours ago. On one side (which was slightly heavier), it attracted a lot of backlashes on social media, while on other, the company claims that it was able to achieve its sales target of $100 million in GMV in a matter of 10 hours only (fixed as 24 hrs initially).

    What is the Flipkart Big Billion Day?

    This is big day as Flipkart is trying to fool millions of customers by offering discounts which already existed on normal days. You won't believe me I guess and for the same reason I have checked the prices of few of the products across accessories, shoes, clothing and electronics categories and I found out that the price of products increased on 5th october to double of the existing price.

    Big billion day on flipkart is announced once in a year, probaly before Diwali..

    flipkart is having a great strategy behind this, what they do is they gives a huge discount once in a year, it all includes sales like, end of season sale, Diwali sale, Navratri sale, all sales in one time, in these days sellers sells out there stock which is left in current year, and customers thinks that they are getting a huge discount.

    Rest many sales announced in approx every month even if you check your junk box you will see there are different many offers they are giving you specially…

    it is once a year phenomenon. However there are other sales that are announced from time to time. Expectation is that before Diwali, flipkart will announce another sale.

    Flipkart's Big Billion Day sale over: You just don't know it yet!

    In case you don't know what the Big Billion Day Sale is about - Flipkart aims to do business of more than 1 billion in one day on 6th October 2014.

    ET Bureau

    Flipkart has been advertising for its Big Billion Day sale from the past couple of weeks. There have been a number of deals running on the ecommerce portal since morning 8am across various categories with discounts as high as up to 80%. However, the sale has already come to an end within 7 hours.

    In case you don't know what the Big Billion Day Sale is about - Flipkart aims to do business of more than 1 billion in one day on 6th October 2014. We are not sure if Flipkart has already achieved its sale target by 2pm but most of the deals will not be processed anymore. At approx. 2pm, seller accounts of third party vendors on Flipkart have been put as pending i.e no more orders will be taken for the day and products will now show the status as 'out of stock'. A few selected deals will continue to be listed, but essentially the sale is over.

    The main reason behind this move is that Flipkart has already received more than 3,00,000 orders in the first 6 hours of the sale - a number that is the limit of their enormous logistics team to process. They will not risk taking more orders and then fail to process them in dispatch tomorrow. A wise strategy to avoid bad mouthing on late delivery, however limiting the sale in such a way will only lead to more complaints from the users.

    Throughout the sale, social media was anyway abuzz with complaints against the site crashing and giving errors, orders disappearing from shopper carts and deals going out of stock as soon as they went live. Online shoppers have been continuously checking Flipkart ever hour for new deals and we are not sure hot Flipkart plans to inform its users about the sale end.

    Considering the hype created around the sale, Flipkart should have been expecting such traffic and orders, especially since they have already done flash sales that led to their site crashing in the past. At the time of writing of the article, Flipkart's Twitter account is still going on about the sale being continued as announced. However, the end of a one-day sale in just a few hours is not something expected from Flipkart at the time when competing websites Amazon and Snapdeal are continuously offering better deals throughout the day.

    Flipkart plans to do another week of similar sale from October 10th to October 16th and we hope that they work on their backend to avoid similar issues during that time.

    The Big Billion day was just to attract customers and no one was able to get benefit from it as within a few seconds products were out of stock.
