Buying a smartphone in the online flash sale is a tedious job considering the huge Indian consumer market. Customers wait for a flash sale for months and the smartphones get OUT OF STOCK in a few seconds. The massive demand and inadequate supply leave the customer with no other option instead of waiting for the upcoming flash sales. There is not any proven way to get a phone easily on a flash sale but below are few tricks which can significantly increase your chance to get a smartphone.
Often, we subscribe for updates and rely on shopping websites to notify us of upcoming flash sales. And most of the time we ignore emails from the shopping website thinking it will be an irrelevant promotional email. Mark your calendar or put an alarm to be available when the sale starts.
The product on flash sales gets OUT OF STOCK in seconds. Get a decent internet connection with good speed to refresh the page continuously and be able to check out when the product gets in our cart. The delay of seconds may result in an empty cart.
UPDATE YOUR DETAILS
To avoid any delay while processing the order, update your delivery address on a shopping website. Often people get relocated and forget to update the new address on shopping websites and only realize when they place an order. Check your delivery address right now and update, if required to easily buy a smartphone online.
KEEP YOUR CARDS READY
Update your Credit or Debit details cards on shopping website to make payments quick and convenient. Most of the time shopping websites don’t allow COD (Cash on Delivery) on flash sale to complete the sale. Keep your card details updated to avoid last-minute delay. Add more than one card to make a payment in case transactions from one card gets failed.
Keep the above points in mind and have a great shopping experience next time you participate in a flash-sale of your next smartphone. For any feedback and suggestion feel free to write us back.
