After Flipkart and Amazon, it’s the turn of Infibeam.com to offer its own ‘big bang’ sale, from Monday through Wednesday.
“Various global electronics brands including Apple, Microsoft, LG, Samsung, HP, Philips along with several national brands such as Micromax, Intex and many others will be offering their products in the Big Bang Sale,” the company said.
It is not clear what kind of discounts will be on offer, but online sellers sometimes give fantastic discounts during their ‘sales’, though stocks will often be limited.
“The Big Bang Sale with discounts of up to 80% will not only make consumers’ dreams come true but take the experience of online buying to a new level,” the website promised.
Online retail is still in its early stages in India and players are trying to get more and more people to try out the experience by offering discounts.
Infibeam is among the top five online retailers in India, and, along with Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal, offers nearly everything on its website. It also tends to cater to a wider geography than other players.
“With the Big Bang Sale, Infibeam is all set to cater customers in over 20,000 pin codes covering the remotest corners of India. All the products will be available with secured payment options including Cash on Delivery (CoD), Credit Card, Debit Card, Net Banking and EMIs. Of the total sales, CoD is expected to be maximum in the Big Bang Sale,” it said.
Other brands whose wares will be on offer include Wrangler, Woodland, Puma, Titan, Timex, Fastrack, Spaces, Fossil, American Tourister, Tommy Hilfiger, Hidesign, Addons, Scullers, Blue Heaven, Oriflame, Mafatlal, Raymonds, Tissot, Davidoff, Adidas, Ray Ban, FCUK, Axe, Burberry, Hugo Boss and Marc Jacobs.
The previous sale by Infibeam, Megasale witnessed 1000% jump in the number of orders. This time also, the growth is likely to be higher again, it said.
