Flipkart created a new record this year by selling about 10 lakh smartphones touching the Rs 1,000 crore sales during the first hour of its ‘Big Billion Days’ annual festive sale. India’s largest ‘etailer’ expects to sell 30 lakh smartphones on day two and has already crossed last year’s total transaction value of Rs 4,300 crore in the first two days itself. The Big Billion Days sale of Flipkart will run through October 14.
“We sold one million mobiles in an hour and crossed 3 million in one day, which makes it the highest number of smartphones sold in a day by a single retailer in India,” said Smrithi Ravichandran, senior director at Flipkart. A similar buoyancy in business was also seen in during annual festive sale of Amazon India.
