Dimers,

I want to know what loot means for people here.

Here is my Definition “If people get the loot its good if not then people need to move on without bugging/pushing companies”.

So I am really finding it saddening to read that people want to loot/sue companies like Amazon, FK and SD for various reasons ranging from:
1. CB not received for bank cards.
2. PE’s product orders being cancelled.

I also want to mention what good have been done by these e-commerce giants:
1. I can bargain with any offline store by showing them the price of the product at which its being sold and they will match it.
2. Ease of getting the product delivered at home.
3. Saving on Fuel Expenses.
4. Saving on Time.
5. CB from several sites like zingoy.
6. Card discounts which are mostly greater than offline stores.

I was forced to write this seeing and reading recent posts and the worries from fellow dimers because in the end we the dimers don’t want to make these e-commerce platforms die. Lets think ethically over here.

I will really want people to reply when they have a moment or two to write their definition of loot and understanding on the issue talked here. I fear if people don’t support these online portals sooner or later they will shut down and we are not thinking on the larger/bigger picture instead we want only loots.

P.S: Search how amazon.com earns money for amazon which amazon.in doesn’t.

EDIT 1:
1. DD and such communities wouldn’t have never survived.
2. People will loose jobs which are directly or indirectly linked.

This should be the definition without asking. Idiots who do otherwise are the problem. And yes, these online shopping sites have revolutionized shopping for me and I am thankful for that. Btw, in which offline stores did you manage to price match?

By not giving any discounts. Discounts are very very less on Amazon.com

I don’t know what’s needed or not but for sure I don’t want people to socially insult companies/sue for things said in the post or irrelevant things.

Actually.. Amazon.in is not earning money but loosing it. Same is the case with Flipkart.. Snapdeal and other E-Commerce sites in India.

What definition u gave (Here is my Definition “If people get the loot its good if not then people need to move on without bugging/pushing companies”.) is NOT Loot but A Reaction/Response/Activity to a Loot

Loot is availability of product at loot prices (In like terms)

As per Oxford – Loot means Goods, especially private property, taken from an enemy in war.

As regards supporting E-commerce platform, as per new govt policies prices are to be set by sellers and cannot be influenced directly and indirectly by etailers.This means that e-tailers wont burn own cash rather seller will be at loss selling at low price. Even a seller cannot have more than 25% of total sales.However one can still control 25% of marketplace via placing own seller.(however there will be ways to circumvent the intentions of provisions, they will develop in future and will be more stringent). This will be blessing in disguise for them as they wont make further losses on discounting.
Refer – https://thewire.in/26653/time-to-bid-farewell-t...
Regarding bad reviews or ratings, its persistent all around world and at all major e-commerce platforms.Its user belief and opinions which cannot be barred as they have freedom to speak and express.Does this mean that major e-commerce sites today are dying due to negative reviews? Absolutely Not.

And also supporting E-commerce sites, plz Support India Inc. https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_twisted.gif

Amazon is just outster and they coming in India and making such a loss is just for taking away share of Indian Companies and making them bear loss to stay in competition with it.They have enough resources to even suffer a major loss and stay in India , however our companies cannot do so being new entrants and not well globalised.End result shall be after churning of cash , they will have habituated India to buy online and ppl will have to buy at normal or higher prices there due to unavailability of competition and discounts.

If you really want to support then support Indian home-grown e commerce sites by purchasing from them despite little higher prices.Support is needed more for Flipkart and Snapdeal as they have lack of funds at disposal especially, Snapdeal now cutting on salary and affiliate.Fk and SD valuations cut in half just because of entry of Amazon and incapacity to compete with Amazon and other issues.

Recent development – I find Flipkart now improving more faster towards CC service as well Snapdeal and Amazon just detoriating to become Shopclues level CC.

Final thing regarding-
“So I am really finding it saddening to read that people want to loot/sue companies like Amazon, FK and SD for various reasons ranging from:
1. CB not received for bank cards.
2. PE’s product orders being cancelled.”

If Amazon Fk Sd place such offers on site involving cash backs on Bank cards , they are bound to honour the cashbacks based on Originality of Terms. In case if you fall within terms and still u dont get cashback, ppl will Obviously threaten them.
However, when despite being not covd in terms and still ppl threaten, shall not harm the company as they havent done anything wrong in not giving and bad ratings & comments can be easily discarded by giving proper response.

You need not absolutely worry about them as they are doing business and run by Well known and Extremely Talented CEO’s . Their decisions and strategies are ever evloving based on cusomer perception.They wont die just because of us Dimers https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_confused.gif

@Chotta Bheem Yes, we need to support Indian companies but it’s funny to even consider companies such as Flipkart that are registered in Singapore and have more than 80% of the equity diluted to foreign investors as Indian companies.

Understand that for every Rs. 100 the make, if they do, around Rs. 80 goes to foreign investors and other Rs. 20 to Flipkart which is not even a registered Indian entity.

Something similar applies for most of these so called Indian startup giants (unicorns). So before you lay down the DESI argument do consider if they really are.

@anilenggworks77964 great topic to initiate. I think you got it quite right.

There have been a few instances where I could bag a product at a price much lower than on other platforms/offline stores but what I don’t expect such deals on a daily basis.

But what you have to understand is that these e-commerce companies have to be ethical as well. Taking the example of comparing amazon.com and amazon.in, if at all amazon.com were to blatantly cancels price error orders they would be sued the very next day! When a company such as Amazon claims to be the most customer centric company in the world they have to show it in actions. First, they have to ensure that no price errors creep in and second, if at all they do they have to honour it just as they do in US.

Being a company with such immense experience it’s silly to see price errors creep in so often. Can they not implement a small system that has a lower and upper threshold to verify the price of a product before the seller posts it? Or some efficient system to help sellers.

Apart from that I see so many complaints about eligible cash backs too. Why does a customer has to run behind them and worry about cash back when they are entitled to it? Don’t you think it has to be a seamless process?

Yes, e-commerce is the future but at the same time it’s high time they fix these minor issues and win back the trust.

I agree to whatever you are saying.

I also know instances where buying those things offline is much cheaper than online. But I will say this is only true for few products.

At the first its Amazon’s responsibility in making sure PE’s doesn’t happen. Comparing Amazon.com’s policy “People get banned for keeping multiple accounts and ordering same products by multiple accounts for the same household which doesn’t happens here. They do have very less to no PE’s.”

I agree on your thoughts around cashback and honouring deals. But Bashing a company for cashback or deals has to be in a constructive way and not be in a destructive way. I have no insights on how Amazon functions but feedbacks and constructive criticism will surely help amazon grow if they keep a track of them.

I believe fix is required for the e-commerce as well as the customer base. https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_biggrin.gif

I agree we should stop complaining for loot but we won’t be able to get compensation if we don’t complain on CS

Also the bank cb something that should be given for sure, one should do something if they don’t get these kind of cb since bank offers are the main offer banner on every site .main reason we buy on festival sale

I purchase things at least 3-4 times a year from Croma stores. Every time, they deny to match online prices. They simply say “we can not match online prices”. Warehouse model vs expensive retail space being the obvious reason.

Moreover, once they even denied to match a promotion (discount after coupon) listed on even their own website! That item wasn’t available for delivery in Bangalore otherwise I would have ordered online itself.

It may be city specific situation too. I can’t comment more on this. But for sure this gets applied to refrigerator, television and laptops. If they can’t match it exactly they will offer you some voucher, gift and 0% EMI to sum up.
