Is flipkart increasing prices of products for pre-booking as sale day is coming nearer?
I wish listed a hand bag but did not pay 1 rupee pre-booking amount, now I think the price for it has increased.

Obviously.. They dont have standard prices always.. They keep fluctuating.. Frequent Sale’s are reason for it.Check prices with any tracker before buying.

So effectively increasing prices.
Maybe they see which product is getting higher pre-booking or whish listed and increasing its prices/reducing the discount percentage.
At this rate on sale day the prices will come to normal prices with no feel of Once in a year Big Sale….
Now intrest in flipkart sale is decreasing. Let’s see what amazon comes up with.

Thats how bulk purchasing works. The price changes in some cases when the delivery date is nearing because the vendors have to re-plan their purchases too. Nobody wants to keep the stuff in warehouse after paying for it. It could turn into dead investment and has to disposed off at a loss at a later time.

This is always the case even on sale. Day-1 is better than others

So everyone(thousands/lakhs of people) who just wish listed products but didn’t pay Pre booking amount simply wasted their time on flipkart. rage
I just checked my wish list, products have double or tripled in prices since I added them.
Everybody check your wish list and see…
What a waste of time rage rage rage

Wishlist does not mean you are going to buy. Like you don’t want to waste time and money, every business wants to do the same. If 1cr ppl added as wishlist, does flipkart get even a rupee?

Well flipkart itself was saying “start wishlisting now” in their ads. Now it seems only the people who paid Pre booking amount need to wait for the sale day, that too just to place their order.
For the rest of others sale is already over before it even starts. rolleyes rage

Again saying wishlist means, you showed interest and probably buy if the price is X and I might buy the same item if the price is Y. I have like 100 items in my wishlist and will not buy all now even if they are cheaper. It’s a way of shopping and marking them for later purchase when you are free and later buy when you need it. So, you will not buy your wish listed item if that is available at a cheaper price than what it is right now or what it goes in let’s say AZ? If you need it, you’ll probably buy wherever it is cheaper at that time expecting that it will not be any cheaper.
Coming to sale, all FK need is what is the best price they can offer for it and expect they will be able to sell all that they ordered. If they cannot anticipate the price or demand they are at loss. There are people with management and procurement degrees to do that and get paid for it. Let the sale begin and make statements.

what I said is the reality of now, so my statements are spot on. I don’t need to wait for any particular time to say it.

Is there a big difference in pre-book price and sale day price.

Like for pre-book deals they show below ‘big billion day price’ and for many that’s same as pre-book price

My guess is that when they open a category for Pre booking then the price are the lowest. Keep in mind that you will not get extra sbi 10% off on Pre booking price.
Gradually they keep increasing the pre book price.
So one person can book a product for Pre book price of Rs400/- on day 1 of Pre booking opening, same product will be available to be Pre booked at Rs 750/- after 2 days of Pre booking opening and so on.
Diffrent people will get different Pre booking price for the same product based on the day they book it. The nearer to the sale day higher the price of Pre booking. And all the Pre booked orders DO NOT GET SBI 10% OFF

So a simple lesson learnt is what needs to be bought in sale pre-book it for re.1 immediately

During the sale which so ever company offers at significantly lower price buy that one ignoring the prebooking since it’s a good fall back when the se starts and you know you wouldn’t go empty hande

happened many times on AZ where the buy now button just freezes and when it’s click able waiting list is already full.
