How eCommerce sites and/or online sellers make money by running offers!!
I wanted to buy a 64GB SD card with class 10 and I had a look at different pricing options in Amazon.in. I opted to go with this amazon fulfilled product which was selling for ~44% discount (having MRP ₹3149)…. WOW! That’s really great.
Then placed an order for the same on 1st July and seller shipped the product immediately through Indian Postal Service’s EMS.
Before receiving the product, I simply went to Flipkart to compare the product and I ended up seeing similar product was selling for ₹2000. No surprise for me by seeing the offer price, but the MRP really surprised me it was ₹4500!! May or may not, the info could be correct as per the product available with Flipkart, or they are trying to fool the customers by giving the product with 54% DISCOUNT!!
Wait, its still surprising…
I’m not worrying about what I got today, lets think this way, what if they are not running a discount offer for that product, and someone else or I got a product which has lesser MRP? Who will end up with complaints? Why Amazon/Flipkart is not verifying the product prices? Or isn’t it possible to check these information?
GUYS, PLEASE BE ALERT WITH PRODUCT PRICES WHILE PURCHASING ON/OFFLINE

UPDATE – 29-July-2015 (Suppose to update in second week!)
I should have directly gone to Twitter for raising my voice against this loot first, instead of spending time on writing reviews.. 😛
