Now, there will be no more expensive online shopping on Amazon, Flipkart and other platforms. The residents of Uttar Pradesh will not be able to order products exceeding Rs. 5000. Actually, these e-commerce companies are facing some tax issues set by the state government.
Thus, the companies are forced to stop shipping for expensive products to the residents of UP.
Six months ago, the government made it compulsory for the online buyers to note down the number of the vehicle shipping the product from outside the state. It was also asked to file VAT declaration. This has thus, virtually ended the online shopping for expensive items.
Due to this, the companies are facing huge losses as they are unable to ship the products to their customers, because of the tax imposition and seizing such products coming from outside the state.
The customers are also unhappy, as they are unable to purchase some of their valuable products.
But, the companies are on their way to find out a solution for this.
Many companies are planning to open warehouses in Uttar Pradesh. This way the products will be delivered within the state and tax will be imposed on the product delivery.
There was a 15-20 minute technical glitch with the Flipkart ‘Big Billion Day Sale’. But, finally this problem has been fixed now. According to reports, there were almost six million visits from all over the country for its online sale.
On the other side of the coin, Amazon introduced early morning delivery service. Paytm changed the look of the website. It is expected that and Snapdeal and Amazon are yet to introduce their further sale details.
According to reports, almost 1.6 million Flipkart app have been installed in just two days and this has made the online festive sale to start with a bang, undoubtedly.
Inspite of the bang start, there were some issues found in the delivery times at Flipkart. There was a message conveying that the delivery time might get longer because of the heavy demand at present.
However, the morning delivery service by Amazon seems to lure the customers instantly. Its delivery service says that the products bought the previous night, would be delivered to customer by 11 am of the next day, i.e. next morning.
According to reports, this morning delivery service is valid across Delhi /NCR, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Bengaluru for just Rs120.
This festival season is sure to bring loads of offers for the customers. iPhone 6s is also going to be released in India after two days. But, if anyone does not have that budget, then this season they can look at some amazing iPhone 6s alternatives.
