Flipkart.com has been one of the most successful Indian dot coms. The co-founders of flipkart- ex-employees of Amazon launched the website before Amazon saw market potential in India. Amazon now entered in Indian market with Junglee.com but flipkart is leaps ahead and surely going to keep no.1 position for years to come. Still, I’ve never used flipkart, which might look strange for person like me, who’s very active on the internet. It’s not that I prefer some other e-commerce site over flipkart. But honestly, I’ve not purchased anything online lately (except few apps from itunes). So I spent some time on flipkart.com and also added GMAT book purchase window for my Indian visitors, who now have option to buy GMAT books from flipkart.com (ckeck out the side bar on right!).
Now, when I thought, it’s time I should fulfil my “wishlists” I checked flipkart rather than amazon.com. And to my surprise, most of the books are cheaper of or at same prize than amazon. Look at the Harry Potter Book set banner for example: 20+% off on complete series book. And then I noticed Harry Potter’s Signature Edition Collection Box, a set of all HP books at less than 2,000 Rupees! 40+% off- that’s a steal! Get the Signature Edition at 1,979 Rs (less than $35!)
