Open Box Delivery: Flipkart is in the news for its festive season sale. The company was taunted due to the cancellation of the first iPhone 13 order. The same, now Yashasvi Sharma, a student of IIM-Ahmedabad, had ordered a laptop for his father, but when Flipkart gave the delivery, there were packs of detergents in it. The order was placed in the Big Billion Days sale. Yashasvi tweeted that the e-commerce giant has categorically refused to correct its mistake.
Yashasvi Sharma said that Flipkart’s customer support is blaming him on the contrary. He told the customer care that he also has CCTV evidence to prove this, but still he did not get any help. Sharma further added that his father had assumed that the OTP would be given on receipt of the package, which mostly happens at the time of prepaid delivery. He did the same, told the OTP and did not open the package and see it. All this happened because Yashasvi and his father did not know about Open Box Delivery. There are many people who do not know about this feature. Today we are going to tell you about this.
Years ago I used to hear of snapdeal delivering stones in place of iPhone. Today @Flipkart delivered laundry soap in place of a laptop.
Flipkart assured order. From one of their biggest sellers, RetailNet.
