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.
Due to server issues website and orders were showing errors like error 500 and order cancellation. OOPS!!
BBD was also a boon for competitors like Snapdeal and Amazon. They proposed offers which were comparatively more than Flipkart’s BBD. Amazon took the coin when they bought domain name bigbillionday for getting traffic from search engine and they succeeded. *Claps*
It has been reported that Flipkart is to be penalised for selling products at such low prices. That fine will be not less than 1,000 crores. Whereas Flipkart was able to earn 600 crores in just 6 hrs with 3,00,000 orders WOW! that shows Indian craziness.
Flipkart after cancelling customer’s order sent this apologies email to everyone 🙁
