Raging Battle Among India's Top Online Retailers To Dominate Upcoming Diwali Shopping Frenzy

The big boys of India's online retail - Flipkart, Snapdeal, Amazon India, Paytm and Shopclues - are gearing up for the big shopping whirl during this October-November’s Dussehra and Diwali festival season. Each is vying to grab customers through promotions, big discounts (up to 90%), new product launches and cashback schemes. The year-end festival season is traditionally India’s busiest buying and gifting time for all things starting from fashion to furniture. "Like Christmas in the United States, Diwali is becoming the coalescing event in India around which a large amount of spend is going to happen," says Vani Kola, co-founder and managing director of venture capital firm Kalaari Capital whose investments include Snapdeal and fashion retailer Myntra (now owned by Flipkart). For online retailers, the festival season represent a big sales surge as Indians are expected to splurge an estimated $6 billion on clothes, electronics and home products, representing a three time jump from last year’s festival season. "Accessing that spend becomes important as it will bring a jump in the GMV and increased customer acquisitions," says Kola. "It will serve as an indicator for what is it come." "This is going to be the most hotly-fought Diwali and online retailers are going all out with promotions and very aggressive discounting," says Arvind Singhal, founder and chairman of New Delhi-based retail consultancy, Technopak Advisors. The stakes are high as the season accounts for 40% of the whole year’s sales, he said. The competition is distinctly a lot tense than a year ago. "Everybody wants the highest share of the customer's wallet because it will ultimately impact their valuations. Nobody wants to be seen as losing market share to a competitor," says Singhal.
