Indian e-commerce giant Flipkart is in final talks with Walmart for its sell-out and the deal is expected to be taken place next week. If this happens, it will be beginning of the next e-commerce war and Amazon India will be the biggest adversary to Flipkart. Amid this, the mega summer sales are hitting the Indian online stores. Both Flipkart and Amazon will host their summer sale offer in May.
The mega summer sale is certainly going to be a treat for Indian consumers as these e-tailers will offer heavy discounts and cheaper prices to maintain their pace in the competition. During the sale period, heavy discounts are likely to be offered on smartphones, electronics, televisions, daily needs, apparel, kitchen appliances, home decor and more.
Mega Summer Sales: What’s cooking?
Like mentioned before, Flipkart and Walmart are almost ready to join hands to defeat their strong rival, Amazon. Amazon has been a direct competitor for Walmart in the international markets and for Flipkart in the Indian market for a long time. While so, Amazon India has said that they are already prepared for the challenge.
According to several reports, both the online shopping sites have already in full swing to stock up for the occasion of their upcoming sales. In addition, they both have acquired about 70-80 percent of their usual inventory for general sales. Moreover, the reports suggest that these e-commerce companies have stocked up as much inventory as they regularly do for the annual sale taken during Diwali season.
Mega Summer Sales: Products with Huge discounts
The summer sales will be the perfect time for both the companies to cash in the opportunity to knockout from competition. You can expect huge discounts and offers on an extensive range of products. The obvious product categories receiving heavy discount includes smartphones, electronics, televisions, daily needs, apparel, kitchen appliances, home decor and more.
Not just heavy discounts, the popular product categories like smartphones and consumer electronics will be eligible for benefits like extra cashback if the purchase is made using selected debit and credit cards. Also, no-cost EMI options will be offered by both the companies.
The dates for the mega summer sales of these e-commerce giants have not been revealed yet. However, we expect that the summer sale on both platforms will be hosted at about the same time in May.
