The giant of e-commerce, Flipkart officially saw (maybe its first) downfall on its #BigBillionDay today. The e-commerce site declared that it would be launching the biggest ever online sale today beginning 8am in the morning. Fashion goods, electronics, gadgets, books etc were all under the bumper sale where the products were being sold at a discount rate of 30 to 50 percent. However, to the disappointment of the customers, the online portal crumbled and many were unable to place their orders.
With such a massive sale it was easy to foretell that such an incident would occur. It would have been best if Flipkart would have taken precautionary measures instead of focusing solely on the #BigBillion profit. The site crashed as a result of excessive traffic. Costumers even complained that they did not receive any confirmation of their order even after the payment.
Letting out their frustration and popularizing Flipkart with unpopularity, Flipkart fans took to Twitter to vent it all out:
