Yesterday I checked my old account which was blocked by flipkart in February. And it was unlocked. I am able to use it now. grinning

Dont place many big orders esp ordering mobiles through gc one after the other in short time. 2-3 orders will be ok in long time through gc

I called their customer care.
Had to explain them 6-7 times to make this go through their head and finally disconnected the call.
No doubt amazon customer care is far better than Flipkart CS.
Anyways ordered a laptop worth 26k. Now I still have 10k balance.

Yes. All these ive made multiple orders via cc.
This one time i placed an order by adding 9k vouchers, account blocked immediately.
Reason they said-purchase trends, reseller blah blah.
Then why didn’t they find it all these yrs?
Other acs are intact.

This is ludicrous , why ban account, why issue GV in first place , if they are going to ban anyways.

Bought 5 phones using GV within a month. Now I can’t purchase anymore phones from that account, gets cancelled everytime I order. Other orders gets processed without any issue.

I guess they fixed it now. Instead of terminating whole account they’re blocking specific orders.

Nothing like that.
Do not complaint to customer care about order cancellation.
If you complain, your account will get blocked.
And your account is marked for re-seller and cannot purchase any electronics item even a pen drive

This is atleast better than blocking completely. Thanks for the update bro plus1

Each person has a different view.
Don’t you think they have a fraud detection system in backend for this? Does it matter if you reach out to CC or not?

ofcourse they have fraud detection system in place. It is not possible to check each and every account.
Telling this from my personal experience
