Extended Timeline for Mega Sales Events

Earlier, the festival sales by Amazon and Flipkart used to be limited to a 2-4 days timeframe around Republic Day i.e. January 26. However, this year both the platforms have greatly expanded the sale timeline stretching across 7-10 days. [12]

Industry experts say this is being done to spread out consumer demand over a longer period. Earlier issues like website crashes, product stock unavailability complaints were quite common due to the intense load on servers during the short 2-4 days sales.

The sale timespan is also in line with global mega-sales events like Black Friday in US and Singles Day in China which go on for a week or longer.

Outlook

The Republic Day sales come right after the Deepavali and Christmas shopping seasons in Oct-Dec 2023. Consumers have already spent significant amounts during the year-end sales. Hence, both Amazon and Flipkart have sweetened deals across categories to attract buyers.

With India’s economy projected to grow around 6% in 2024, consumer sentiment is bullish. Ecommerce sales are likely to see 30-40% YOY growth this year. [13] The extended Republic Day sales timeline will allow consumers to evaluate and purchase products conveniently over 1-2 weeks instead of hurried buying.

Competition with offline retail stores is also heating up. Brick-and-mortar chains like Reliance Retail, Croma, Vijay Sales have announced their own Republic Day promotions to retain footfalls. [14]

Nevertheless, industry forecasts suggest online shopping will continue to gain higher share of retail sales in 2024, with ecommerce majors holding sway especially in electronics, smartphones and appliances categories. [15]
