Following a major success to its ‘Big Billion Day Sale last year on October 6, Flipkart is back to repeat the online sale again, but this year sale starting from October 13th will be on app-based one with mobile phones only.
The last year sale was so successful that the whole Flipkart site was crashed several times, but the e-commerce website has promised that there wont be any crash this time.
The week-long ‘Big Billion Sale’ will begin on October 13 and end on October 17, unlike last time when it was confined to just one day. In fact, the Flipkart website crashed briefly under pressure when the rush of consumers brought the e-retailer to technical snags though more than 10,000 staff were working online on the day. The company came back to life but by then all the top deals of the day were sold out.
Flipkart said: “Celebrating the start of festive season in India, Big Billion Days will be the ultimate shopping event for customers to shop for gifts and other items for friends and family.”
