What’s GOSF?

Great Online Shopping Festival, as all know it is organized by Google every year since 2012. It’s a day similar to Cyber Monday and Black Friday of US, UK & other nations when shoppers jampack the market and sellers give them a gala  time offering heavy discounts on all products.

GOSF 2014

GOSF, India’s biggest online shopping festival by Google garnered 80 lakh visits offering thousands of items at just 299 and most of others at 55% off. Following were the highlights of this GOSF:

  •  Exclusive launch of Nexus
  •  299 CORNER (To attract first time shoppers)
  • 14 minutes free shopping (for few lucky shoppers)

Apart from the sales, visits, discounts what came in as a complete surprise was customers’ response to this shopping fest. The traffic to all price comparison and coupon/cashback offering sites rose to double during 72 hrs online sale. People who  took  to  such  platforms  have  fared  well  due  to  real  time  price  check  as comparing prices by going to each seller’s site is tiring and barren.

What went wrong?

Like  always,  all  Indian  sites  could  not  offer  unbiased  placing  of  products  and disappointed users. That’s something Indian shoppers have been facing for quite awhile now owing to less competition for quality. It’s ordinary to see that half of the times price comparison tools too fail to offer updated information, especially during  a  sale.  Except  of  the  few  who  used  trusted  price  comparison  tools,shoppers ended up buying impulsively. Figures tell us, they still fared good, but our experts perceive, ‘It could be better’.
