I had reduced my prices before BBD, so that my product ratings and visibility increases. But i got stuck when they said i cannot increase prices, but also give additional discount if i want to participate in BBD.

I was getting 400 orders per say before BBD.
I geared up for BBD, started receiving 600-800 orders per day.

However, on the downside, only 300 orders were getting released everyday.

Even today 1200 orders are unreleased.

These orders were placed by consumers on 3rd October. They havent been released yet.

Now, just like last year, customers will start cancelling orders and refuse delivery.

Downside, we will have to bear return charges which for my price point will be approx 20% of product value.

BBD - Bade Bade Dikhaave.

These sales are meant only for WS Retail and Retailnet.

And if our product does better than their products, they make sure that customers get a bad experience with our product, and we pay for their capacity issues

Earlier they were saying that mark all sundays as working for this month as in this month we are expecting maximum sales bcoz of diwali and BBD and now notification is showing that 

" Our logistics partner will not be available for pick-ups on Sunday 09-10-2016 " 

What does it means ...? 

we have to dance the way they want and if they want they can withdraw there choice at any point of time

One sided Love is going on .....We love flipkart but flipkart love WS-Retail & Retailnet the Most

Average sales remains same for most of the sellers because one week prior to sales & a week after the sales, you can see downfall in sales. Flipkart & amazon both are running sales for their PET sellers. What is the use for sale when all the orders are  kept in upcoming tab for flipkart & reserved stock for amazon FBA. Orders getting cancelled every day is further disappointing. They should keep all the sellers in mind before planning for such events.
From amazon daily 200 to 300 orders approx and flipkart 20 orders aprox.
Flipkart dead.

Today on 10th October, 4 days after BBD, we took out data to analyse the sales.

The data is very disappointing.

Normally we get 300-400 orders everyday.

On BBD we got 800 orders on 2nd October. But orders were released at an average of 200 orders per day. Post BBD, the order rate has decreased to less than 50 orders per day.
