Why payTM is offering The cheapest Deals and cashback offers?

Paytm is one of the India’s largest mobile commerce platform. Paytm started by offering mobile recharge and utility bill payments and today it offers a full marketplace to consumers on its mobile apps.They claim to have over 20mn registered users. In a short span of time Paytm has scaled to more than 15 Million orders per month.

Paytm is the consumer brand of India’s leading mobile internet company One97 communications. One97 investors include SAIF Partners, Intel Capital and SAP Ventures.

Recently, paytm switched from a full time online recharge website to complete e-commerce business with all the electronics and consumer goods to compete with the likes of flipkart,amazon, snapdeal, myntra etc.

To compete with online retail behemoths like flipkart, amazon etc One need to have something better and out of the league to attract customers which is so obvious. Hence, cashbacks offers and cheapest deals.
Paytm is offering these amazing cashback offers which makes a particular item cheapest on it's online store, one definitely will go for it or atleast will try once for sure. By providing cashbacks in terms of paytm wallet cash they make sure you visit them again and again to use those cashback amount for further purchases and hence a nice way of retaining customers.
As they have a strong customer base who recharge from their estore, they are the first to try it and I am no different. I myself purchased a lot of stuffs from paytm shop and received the products in good condition with genuine brands. 
I don't have the data of the hike in customer base and their monthly sales on paytm but certainly I could see a rise in traffic on paytm shop and it is now ranked 54 (on 2nd oct 2014)  in India by Alexa traffic ranking. 
Whatever the reason behind the #greatPaytmGiveaway , customers are happy buying stuffs at cheaper rates from paytm shop. 

I would recommend buying stuffs from them.

For any customer issues you can reach out to Paytm Customer Care.

Flipkart Craziest Deals

Hi Fellow shoppers,

I am glad to see you people hooked on to this particular deal from flipkart which is running between 4pm to 6pm today i.e 22nd sept 2014.  Flipkart offering deals from Rs 1. Also, there are some crazy deals with 90% flat OFF , 99% OFF on MRP or Flat @ 99 etc.
As flipkart claimed regarding the sales of its Xiaomi mobile phones mi3 and redmi 1S which gets sold out in few seconds on deal opening day.

I can think of two different aspects of this deal as they are also getting sold out in seconds :-
Firstly, It seems flipkart is taking due advantage of Xiaomi sales and selling out all the years old stocks @ 90% OFF sale rather than throwing them away. It may also be a trial test if they can sell age old products from their stock. :-D
Secondly, I feel like they have switched to some new server or trying a load test on the server by giving away this deal and who knows they have restricted per item sale limit to just 10 or 100, which will let them know the server load capacity.
The saddest part of flipkart is that it is the best rated online store in India but after switching themselves  to multi-vendor e-commerce site, most of the common items are not available to basic Pincodes of India where any newly launched website can deliver with ease.


Apparently, it can also be said that they are promoting the FLIPKART FIRST by selling offers @ Re 1 , as being a normal customer you will have to pay a delivery charge of Rs 40 which is applicable on orders below Rs 500. (When flipkart was launched it was selling items with free shipping on no minimum purchase value, I personally bought many a times during that period) This can be easily seen in the promotional mail of this particular offer sent by marketing team to the customers which shows a flipkart first link at the bottom.


I didn't buy anything from this deal but saw every product before getting sold out.
They were selling cheap chinese Deos @ Re 1, Aerial7 tank Headphones @ 90% OFF, live tech headsets @ Re 1, unbranded wallet (men) @ Re 1. Joma shoes 70% OFF etc.
Whatever the motive behind this kind of crazy deal by flipkart it is a win-win situation for both and I wish flipkart keeps offering such deals in future also for their customers and they include more delivery pincodes under delivery areas list. I have seen flipkart removing many smaller items also from the delivery area list which were previously available before it getting multi-vendor.

How to SAVE MONEY on Online Shopping without using coupons ?


So you're at the checkout of flipkart.com with your favourite gadget in your cart, and you're ready to pay. As you hover your mouse cursor over the final "Make Payment" button, however, a single drop of nervous sweat forms above your temple. The question materializes in your mind, as you begin to fret: "Am I paying too much for this stuff?"
On Flipkart, amazon, or any other online shopping store, finding the lowest price can be difficult, not to mention nerve-wracking. The tips herein should help you make better purchasing decisions and ensure that you're buying your items at an optimal time and price.
Here are some more tips that can be helpful and is seen working in both of these online behemoth flipkart and amazon to grab a good deal.

Deal of the day

Flipkart and Amazon both are running deal of the day offers wherein they sell normal priced products at a discount of 50% or more just for a day. Make it your first click for some of the best deals around. Everyday flipkart offers deal of the day and keep changing products on offers zone, at the same time amazon features deal of the day, lightening deals, Happy Hour (normally 7pm to 8pm on saturday) and many more personalized discounts. Keeping an eye on these links daily may take you to your desired product at a deep discounted price. 


Protect yourself from price swings

It's a little-known secret that amazon prices changes frequently, in some cases daily. The best way to play the price swing is to Add items in your cart in the "Save for later" section and check back often for a price drop. It requires a little patience, if you are not in a hurry of getting your product. I have seen price swing of a core i3 laptop from 30 grands to 21 grands. I have also gained from this strategy . Keep visiting your wish list on daily basis and when you think it's the right time and price go grab it.
The same applies to flipkart also. Add items to your wishlist and wait for price drop. The notification icon will let you know if there is any drop in price and how much.

and lastly visit my website regulary to get best deal running around.


Remember, most of the deals are for limited period only and product under deals gets sold out too fast. So, keep yourself updated with frequent visits to savingbaba.

Happy Shopping and Saving. :)

#AmazonCart A new Feature by Amazon for twitterers / tweeple

#AmazonCart : Add products to Amazon cart from twitter


Amazon India has introduced the #AmazonCart feature for Indian consumers. The latest shopping feature allows Twitter users to select items for purchase on the online retail site without leaving the micro-blogging site.
Initially announced in May, the #AmazonCart feature allows shoppers to link their Twitter and Amazon accounts for in-app purchases. It actually allows consumers to add an item to the cart right from Twitter, while they can purchase it anytime. The popular Internet retailer's #AmazonCart has a tagline, "Add it now. Buy it later. Shop from within Twitter."
Consumers wanting to use the #AmazonCart feature will have to first connect their Twitter account to Amazon. Next, when a tweet by Amazon appears on the feed with an Amazon.in product link; users will have to reply with #AmazonCart to add it to the cart, and then can check-out when they are ready.
Amazon India announced the feature on Twitter and said, "Add it now. Buy it later. Introducing #AmazonCart - give it a try!"
The #AmazonCart feature was initially made available for customers of Amazon in the United States and in Britain, where it was called #AmazonBasket.
While announcing the #AmazonCart feature in May, the company's spokeswoman Julie Law, in a statement, explained the process: "It's simple. When a customer discovers a tweet from their favorite artist, expert, brand, or friend with an Amazon.com product link, they simply add '#AmazonCart' to their reply on Twitter and the product is added to their Amazon.com Shopping Cart. Customers who have not connected their Twitter and Amazon.com accounts will receive a reply tweet asking them to connect their accounts to enable the new feature."

Buyer's Guide : Online Shopping India

I would like you to know and follow certain things before buying online for a hassle free purchase with a good after sales service too.
This guide will help you to purchase online products from major  e-commerce players in India namely  amazon.in, ebay.in  and flipkart.


How to buy from Amazon.in

These are the simple steps to be followed to purchase your order from amazon.in
  • Search and browse for required item(s) from amazon.in 
  • Add them to your cart
  • Proceed to checkout
  • Enter your shipping details,Add if you have a promo code and continue 
  • Pay using your favourable payment option and place your order.
  • Sit back and relax. ;-)


Try to add item(s) fulfilled by amazon to be on the safer side because item(s) fulfilled by sellers have their own set of policies not controlled by amazon.  

Why to go for item(s) fulfilled by amazon?


Fulfilled by Amazon indicates that products are stored, packed and dispatched by Amazon.
Fulfilled by Amazon indicates that: 
  1. Orders are eligible for FREE Delivery and can be placed using Cash on Delivery
  2. Products are stored, packed and dispatched by Amazon
  3. Order delivery tracking to your doorstep
  4. Products can be returned easily by visiting  Returns Support Centre
  5. Amazon handles all customer service
  6. Orders containing items Fulfilled by Amazon worth Rs. 499 or more are eligible for FREE delivery.
    Note: For a limited time, there is no minimum order value and delivery is FREE for all items Fulfilled by Amazon.


How to buy from Ebay.in


Buying on eBay is easy and fun! You can find almost anything for sale, from electronics to mobiles to jewellery.
Here are a few basic steps to get you started:
  1. Find an item.
    Enter keywords into the Search box located at the top of any eBay page. You can also browse through our categories.
  2. Learn about the item you found.
    When you find an item, read the item description carefully. If you have any questions that aren't answered in the item's description, you can ask the seller about the item by clicking the "Ask seller a question" link.
    Note: For listing of sellers enrolled in our PowerShip program, you can see the estimated time when the item will be delivered to you.
  3. Review the seller's Feedback.
    View the seller’s business reputation on eBay by looking at his or her Feedback Score. You can also read the comments left by the seller's previous buyers to be sure that this is a seller you feel you can trust.
  4. Bid or Buy It Now.
    Some items are sold in auction-style listings that require you to place a bid, while others use the Buy It Now option, allowing you to buy the item instantly. Buy It Now can be used alone or along with an auction-style listing. You can use your cart to combine multiple Buy It Now purchases. Check the item page to see what purchase options are available to you. Once you've found and reviewed the item you want, you can place a bid or purchase the item instantly using Buy It Now.
  5. Pay for the item.
    • For auction-style listings: After you've won or purchased an auction-style item, you will need to send the payment to the seller and send the payment details to the seller. If required, you can communicate with the seller to organise shipping and payment. Check the seller's listing or email them to find out what the preferred payment method is and where you should send your payment. You can email your seller at any time by clicking the "Ask seller a question" link from the listing page. Your seller will also send you an email with information on how to pay and where you should send payment.
    • For Buy It Now items: When you decide to buy a Buy It Now item, choose a shipping method and a payment method offered by the seller. The item is yours as soon as you complete the payment process. If you paid using PaisaPay, the seller receives the payment instantly and can prepare to ship the item. If you used an offline method of payment (cheques, demand drafts, etc), the seller will ship the item as soon as the payment is realised. If you’ve received an eBay gift voucher, you can redeem it while paying with PaisaPay to enjoy special discounts and offers.
  6. Confirm whether you received the item or not: After the seller has delivered the item to you, be sure to confirm whether you received the item or not in your PaisaPay Account. This is important to ensure that the transaction is completed successfully. If you do not confirm whether the item is delivered or not, it is considered to be a successful transaction, and you will not be able to claim a refund for the entire payment amount through PaisaPay. Learn more about paying with PaisaPay.
 Things to take care before buying from ebay :
  
  • Read the product description carefully.
    Ebay.in solds old and new item(s) at the same time. So, don't order the product just by seeing the low price it might be a used one (in case you are looking for a brand new product). 
  • Buy item(s) from sellers who has a good reputation.
    See their feedback score and also see since when they are the seller at ebay. This will help you getting an item from a reputed seller with a good before and after delivery service. 
  • For better after sales service, look for item(s) having manufacturer guarantee/warranty.
    In case you are ordering something from a place nearer to you, you may go for those sellers selling with seller's warranty also.  

How to buy from Flipkart.com


  • Search and browse for required item(s) from flipkart.com 
  • Click on buy now option
  • Proceed to checkout with place order option
  • Enter your shipping details
  • Pay using your favourable payment option and place your order.
  • Sit back and relax. ;-)

Flipkart previously was working as single front end operator but now they are having numerous third party sellers with them. Hence, choosing front end operation of flipkart i.e WS Retail can fetch you special offers and discounts compared to other sellers.
Also, alike fulfilled by amazon in amazon.in, WS Retail item(s) are sent to you directly by flipkart and special care is taken to those deliveries and they provide good after sales service too.
Other sellers are having their own set of policies for shipping, return and refund but WS Retail is flexible on these issues.
