So in the final month long sale Flipkart did 2X sales than Amazon.

Flipkart stood at 58% compared to Amazon’s 30% share in the festival sales.

They did business of $8.3 billion from mid-October to the middle of November. Offline sales were quite affected this time

Because offline prices are too high compared to online. Eg just few day back, i bought aquarium air pump offline for Rs 500 and when i checked it on amazon, exact same model was available for Rs 340 even without any offer or sale

Never understood why FK does much more sell than Amazon.
Amazon has better Customer support and better/faster dispatches
Is it just the UI that gives such a big advantage( surely FK UI is much better, much more options to filter products when compared to Amazon)

These Amazon & Flipkart are killing competition. Now a days for even a mouse that is officially for rs.300 all amazon prices are inflated.
Also they are still making loss so once competition subsides they will charge much higher.
All part of the game

What is the source of this data? @ OP
AFAIK they never declare their sales value.

have to agree on the better ui part, when i search for a case of iphone 12 i get cases for all the mobiles in the world except for iphone

on flipkart its just freaking spot on, the search result will be #1

amazon fastest delivery with amazing customer support #Amazonfan and will always be

Amazon is the dummy here
Sale first announced by FK and Amazon followed FK v.soon
FK BBD Bank 10% and Additional discount above 30k+ offers tnc was out and shortly Amazon copied exact same bank offer except that it is cashback instead of instant discount
Its like Amazon was never ready for the sales and only announced them just because flipkart did
And Mobiles.. Amazon only had very few Xiaomi/Samsung mobiles on sale while FK covered major/popular brands

I’ve made like 10+ purchases from Amazon during October 3rd week sale but all those high valued purchases (Water Purifier, Mobile, Smart Watch, Router …) are from Flipkart only

In between sales, there were few PEs on Amazon but the % of users who had actually known/claimed them is very less

There were few PEs on monitors across multiple sales. Most of them were posted by someone but they didnt last long
First some HP ultrawide monitor at 15k, then BenQ 32" 4K @ 23k
Plus samsung 27" curved monitor at 700rs (this one didn’t get posted here)
And some Fuji camera (XT30 at 30k)

amazon can not beat flipkart in giving discounts, in the first 2-3 hours on big billion day sale flipkart’s prices were insanely low..

I also used to think the same, but since a year FK is giving better service faster delivery better ui experience better prices.
Also FK gives coins you can earn and redeem them for other services. There are a lot of factors working better for FK than Amazon at the moment.

And there was a talk between flipkart and amazon for merger… Just imagine what would they have done to small retailers… If that talk would have gone further
