Flipkart.Com Shopping Experience

Hello beauties,

Today I want to speak about a website known as Flipkart.com. I have recently been obsessed with online shopping. But obviously as every other person, I was really really afraid to buy anything online as I am new to this concept and also other safety concerns. But I decided to take a risk and buy something from this website.

URL: www.flipkart.com

ABOUT THE Flipkart.com:

flipkart

Flipkart.com sells:
Books
Cameras
Mobile Phones
Mp3 players/IPods
Movies
Games
Music
Computers

Flipkart.com requires you to create an account so that you don’t have to type out your address and other details every time you buy something. You can also checkout as a guest if you want. You don’t have to give your bank account details during registration, only when you choose to pay through a specific mode. It is a secure website. I had not heard anyone I knew talking ill about this website in fact I was told that it is trust worthy. Another thing that made me buy from this web site was the fact that it has an option of CASH ON DELIVERY. This is such a helpful option as you only pay cash when the books get delivered to you at your own home. The prices are cheaper than those of other websites and shops. I personally have not found any other website that sells for cheaper rate than this particular website. It is said to have cheaper rates than futurebazaar.com etc. I have not checked this claim though. The variety of products on this website is HUGE. You can find just about anything over here. (Trust me, I checked! :P ) It also has 24×7 customer support. They also have free shipping all over India.

MY EXPERIENCE with Flipkart.com

So I decided to be brave and venture into my first online buy. I absolutely love reading and I didn’t like paying so much for books at Landmark or Odyssey or Crosswords or,you get the point. So I was just browsing through this website and I found a book that I was dying to read. So I ordered 3 books and chose the cash on delivery option. I was not risking losing my money. They told me my order will take about 3 days to be delivered. So I placed my order on a Friday evening and started my wait. On Saturday and Monday, I got message alerts on my phone about the status of my order. And by Monday evening I got my order. My books were in perfect condition and they also gave me bookmarks with each of my book.

Even I had ordered 7-8 books at a time. Service is great, but irritating part was, they sent me all books separately.. N every now n then I got bugged with courier services.Rest site is fantastic, prompt service.

I made my first purchase for an HTC Sensation phone on Flipkart. I had network & GPRS problems from Day1, however, I thot it’s due to network and ported my number to other network. The problem persisted and on reaching to HTC service centre, they claim it’s a “liq damage” and I need to go back to retailer! However, Flipkart is so insensitive to react back to the complaint! I’m screwed of 30k amount!!

Extremely disappointed with Flipkart. Whatever they claim Flipkart is a great gamble to go for!!
