Letsbuy Shuts Down Store, Redirects To Flipkart

22 posts in this topic

Letsbuy which was most popular e-store due to the coupon offerings is now dead. Earlier it failed to raise funds and sold to Flipkart. That time it was said that both will work in seperate way but letsbuy will use flipkart's payment system and delivery network while flipkart will use letsbuy's wide product range to sell. Anyway from today onwards Letsbuy is dead.

Nothing to loose anyway. Letsbuy was a neatly made shopping portal and so is Flipkart.

So Letsbuy from Flipkart now.

Thanks Letsbuy for decent online shopping experience

:( :( :( Letsbuy was my favorite :( :( Product Range was awsome and that too all brands at one stop... I was planning to buy sharp LED 40" 3D which was priced at 71990/- (MRP Around 121000/-) and this model is not available on flipkart :( I just checked it on flipkart and same is priced at Rs. 104999 :( which is too high rate then letsbuy ....

Also letsbuy shopping experience used to be better and they used to ship items of any value for free.

Whereas fliipkart charges Rs 30 for orders <= Rs 200

I did my first online purchase from letsbuy and its service was awesome. Though i have never purchased anything from flipkart but from what i had read in various magazines they are pretty strong with their own delivery network across selected cities & towns. The founders of flipkart(ex-Amazon) are pretty good in creating their own format from which is broadly based on Amazon's. But the pricing was one of the most competitively priced store. Will surely miss the neat and very precise format of letsbuy.

I wonder if it was a good strategy by flipkart to bite the competition and kill them like this. Will this ever help the ecommerce market in India & will we ever see letsbuy's pricing and competitive edge into flipkart????

For me it is a better move. Letsbuy was not allowing payment in any mode for consignments intended to be shipped to West Bengal.

Letsbuy was offering deep discounts in the range of 2000 - 4000 on select Nokia models like E6, 700, 701 in the last couple of weeks. Maybe they were clearing the inventory.

Uninstalling Letsbuy android app now.

even flipkart does the same for consignments to WB. some consignments are allowed only in Prepaid and not in cod to WB.

Have you all checked this website www.jabong.com They deliver faster than anyother provider I have used so far.

Flipkart's prices have become atrocious since few months.

It is selling most high value items at MRP. You can get all those at few thousand less at other sites like buytheprice.

Even books have become too costly on Flipkart and available at a much lesser price elsewhere online.

As far as honesty and reliability is concerned, yes Flipkart branding is Reliable.

But it's bit like Prime Minister Manmohan Singh analogy.

The Guy also has an Honest branding but what we will do with that honesty if we have to pay a high price for it?

For books HS18 is best one!

Last month I ordered a book on COD and they sent it via Aramex which does not serve in my area! So while I put the issue to CC, they agreed to give the book free of cost!

It was inevitable. For the past few weeks they were giving deals on products and not delivering any of them. They were just stocktaking and now after the inventory is evaluated they have transferred their establishment to Flipkart.

flipcart bought letsbuy sometime back. so any deal offered thereafter was by flipcart not by letsbuy.but soon a new startup would come in.

Good offers stopped once flipkart bought letsbuy... The only coupon LBSALE with 5% discount was NOT at all working for all 5 transactions I have done in Letsbuy... So later I avoided them and now I think (seeing experience of Nitin ji above) that was a good decision....
