If you are in India, get ready for the biggest online shopping sale ever. This December 12, 2012, Google India is organizing “The Great Indian Online Shopping Festival (GOSF)”, which will feature most of the online shopping websites and services in India, including big names like Flipkart and eBay. A few days ago, Citibank organized a similar kind of one-day online shopping festival, with a limited number of retailers.
The GOSF 2012 will feature deals and services from a wide range of items including: Accessories, Apparel, Electronics, Home & Kitchen, Baby, Gifts, Real Estate, Beauty, Books & Stationery, Healthcare, Jewellery, Local & Classifieds, Travel, Telecom, Finance & Insurance, Automobile, Foot Wear, Jobs.
Online shopping is still picking up in India, with retailers like Flipkart, eBay, Myntra, Yebhi, Jabong and many more, leading the revolution. While it’s an uphill task for these e-commerce sites to find loyal Indian consumers and keep them happy, big sales like GOSF could help keep the baton up and running. Google is certainly doing its bit here.
You might be aware of such kind of sales happening in US and other countries, on various occasions like Thanksgiving (Black Friday, and Cyber Monday) and the Holiday Season, which have been hugely successful for online retailers.
Will this be the beginning of big online sales in India? We are excited to check out the deals on December 12, are you?
