Letter to Sachin Bansal : CEO/Founder, Flipkart.com


Arun’s Note: I have been a regular customer of Flipkart for over couple of years now and have had pleasant experiences with them in 9 out of 10 transactions I have conducted. I had one real bad experience (about a year back), when it came to refund. I did not write about it back then, as I thought it would be one-off case. However, over last few months, I have been increasingly hearing about more and more people experiencing issues with Flipkart service.


This letter was written by Sushrut Bidwai, a Nashik/Pune based Internet Entrepreneur – He details his travails with Flipkart customer service.

Hi Sachin,

Thanks for sharing your email address. This is a long letter, just want to make sure I am communicating everything. Though there is gist at bottom, if you would rather skip.

I bought a laptop and few other things in mid Oct and they were delivered in third week of Oct 2011. After using laptop for few days, I realized that it crashes a lot. I investigated the problem at my end and found that the fan stops working some times and that causes overheating and crash.

I reported this problem and talked to customer support. I was supposed to leave to Bangalore for a business trip of 10 days and hence had asked them to accelerate the process. But only on 23rd Nov, when I was already in Bangalore, I was informed that laptop will be replaced. I was also told that laptop will not be replaced, as per the guarantee, but rather I will get store credit or refund.

I asked the support agent, Mr S that I can only return the defective laptop once I reach back on 2nd Dec. He told me call *him* once I reach. I called flipkart on 2nd Dec and was told S will get back. This same thing continued for next 3-4 days. But neither S, nor any one else from flipkart support got back.

Finally next monday ie 6 or 7th Dec, I was told that reverse pickup will be arranged in next 48 hours. Nothing happened till 13th Dec. Finally I decided to publicly ask for this and then I was told reverse pickup will happen in next couple of days. Again I had to leave on a business trip to Pune, actually for a week, but I cut it short. Not having a laptop was affecting all my business really hard now.

I decided that enough is enough and now I want to be compensated. If flipkart is giving “replacement guarantee”, it has to honor it. And I decided to not co-operate for reverse pickup. The reverse pickup person banged on my door when I wasnt home, for 45-60mins causing serious discomfort to all neighbours and extreme embarrassment to me and rest of my family. We had to answer lot of question, causing further mistrust. Plus our neighours told us that he was using profanities while leaving the building against me.

Even after that, I agreed to the terms offered by flipkart. Terms were, flipkart will ship replacement laptop *immediately*, costing Rs 800 more than my purchase price and I will co-operate in reverse pickup. I had given time for delivery guys to come and pickup the laptop.

Please note that Mr J, customer support staff, told me that replacement will be shipped immediately, that is first thing tomorrow.

Delivery people did not came on given time and hence I called Mr J. He told I have to wait till they come, cancelling in effect all my plans. And if I dont do that replacement will not be shipped. I asked him that replacement was suppose to be shipped immediately, how is that dependent on everything else? He told me no, replacement will be shipped as soon as delviery guys confirmed receipt of defective laptop.

After this I completely lost trust in flipkart. I have purchased more than Rs 150,000 worth of things from flipkart.

After a couple of days, after looking at my tweets, Mr J emailed me that “Flipkart is committed to refund/replace your laptop. And new laptop will be shipped when defective one reached Bangalore warehouse”

Please note that – Mr J first told me, laptop will be shipped next day. They it will be shipped as soon as reverse pickup guys send receipt. Then he said it will be once it reached Bagnalore warehouse.

After that – I finally bought the same laptop, which flipkart told me they cant procure from any sources. I had to not only spend more money but put it on an expensive EMI which will cost me 15K more, as I did not have that kind of cash left.

Then, flipkart told me they have shipped the laptop!! I told them I already bought it. So they went ahead and added some Rs 43,000 store credits to my flipkart account!!

There is no way I can trust an organization like that. I understand this can be one of case, but there is no way you can affect some one like that and still not ready to compensate appropriately.

In a gist –
1. Flipkart guaranteed 30 day replacement, which it did not honor.
2. It never processed for 2 weeks, till I started talking about it publicly.
3. Customer staff kept giving me incorrect information, on purpose
4. All in all it wasted more than 45 days of my computing time.
5. Its delivery guy harassed me, used profanities.

I am an entrepreneur, like you. You can understand how much precious computing time is when you are about to start a new venture. I wasted an entire month. I am completely snowed under now, late with all necessary business stuff. My reputation is down the drains, as I have not been able to keep up with promises. And that’s a huge huge opportunity loss. I was supposed to move to Pune from Nasik by 10th Dec, but had to delay solely because of this laptop issue.  <was-not-in-orig>I had already signed lease agreement effective from 16th Dec, meaning I lost Rs 4500 directly because of Flipkart. </was-not-in-orig>

Tell me what I should do? Should I just take the refund and go away? Or isn’t it my duty as a consumer to make sure businesses are penalized when they do some thing like this and fight for that?

What do you think? Has Flipkart’s customer service really deteriorated over the years, or would you discount this as again one of the rare cases among thousands of other satisfied Flipkart consumers?

Let us know!

  6. Dillip Kumar Dalai says

    On 15th January 2017 i received a mail and call from flipkart stating with i have selected for a gift if i purchase a product of 4000/- INR and that is from sales and promotion and advertise department. the gifts are 1) Samsung LED 49 inches,2) HP laptop i3 core 7th Gen, 3) Samsung S8 64GB, 4) Canon DSLR camera. i have to book from their end and when it is confirmed then only i will get tracking and order ID. As received mail from flipkart.com hence I paid through PAYTM and chose samsung S8 for gift and it was the instruction for the payment mode and after two days again i received a mail and call from Flipkart, which stated GST for the gift i.e . 8899/- again i paid 8899/- INR for GST of the mobile through PAYTM. Today i called to them for my order ID and Tracking ID they told that the transition amount of 8899/- has gone to conflation mode hence have to pay again to refund the GST money. Then i called to Flipkart customer care number came to know that its may prank call as don’t receive any kind of payment through PAYTM. kindly help me to retrieve my money and i can share the mail, which i received from flipkart. Just help me out to retrieve my money. When tried to cancel the money again i paid 2230/- and it was promised the 12899/- rupees will be refunded immediately but could not get it. pls need your sincere support to get my money. as i paid money because of received mail from Flipkart only.

    1. Dillip Kumar Dalai says

      Pls share your email ID so that received emails from flipkart can be sent


    Hi sachin Neeraj Singhal this side. My Mobile no. is 9873324967. I booked a mobile vide My Order
    OD111190450774970000. Very sorry to say that your people, when contacted, said that during transit mobile has been lost and said book another order. Already product price is enhanced by 1000/- rs now.
    when mobile number is there to talk and some disparity is there, it can be sorted out immediately on phone like pincode & all etc; this way you lost your sheen in mind n eyes of a customer. I was not going for first time shopping. it is very much disturbing on behalf of flipcart to behave so rudely.

  8. Kunal says

    Flipkart is waste once it comes to refund of money. They behave as if customers are trapped once he had purchased from them and then there is no support…….. They even don’t consider the vintage of the customer who have been with them….. I had the one today….. They refused a purchase done yesterday.

  9. Priya choudhary says

    I bought a fossil Stella watch of worth rs 10000 according to you guys the delivery time is on 9th November but I received it on 10th of November and when I opened your box it is empty I found no watch is there I called you so many times discussed my problem with you And you raised a request for refund/return but I didn’t get my solution, Amazon is providing better facilities then you, I am using flipcart from a long time, also ordered many product from you guys but this problem I am facing first time. Very harassing for me., but get it resolve and give my money back

  10. Rahul says

    I ordered Redmi Note 4 on 16.10.17,order id-OD110501704820072000.It reached on 07.11.17 & package was found torn.I didn’t receive it.The order was cancelled,my refund status shows,”6 days after PICKUP IS COMPLETED”. Why PICKUP clause when I didn’t receive the item? Please escalate my case.

  11. Rohit says

    I bought a Lenovo laptop for 40k from Flipkart on 25th September 2017 and the laptop turned out to be defective, so I asked for a replacement. They told us to wait for 2 days so that could arrange for a tech visit from their end. But they could never arrange for one. And so they asked us to check if Lenovo could come for a tech visit and give us a report regarding the same. So I ask Lenovo and they arranged for a tech visit the very next day. The technician checks the laptop and gives me a report. And I forward the report to Flipkart. Then Flipkart tells us to wait for a few more days till they can get back to us with a resolution. But they never call back. So I take the issue to Twitter and they respond the very next day saying that they will refund us once the technician confirms the problem (this is as of today 17th November 2017). I don’t get why they have to arrange for another tech visit and delay the refund/ replacement for so long. Why do they want to trouble and mentally harass customers till the point they are very fed up with Flipkart and take the case to court. Why can’t they just give the customer what they want.

  14. Angelo says

    The worst is that Sachin Bansal feels it is below his dignity to even acknowledge, let alone reply, to emails addressed to him by irate customers. An organization is only as good as its top management. Sachin Bansal, through his attitude, has demonstrated that he cares a fiddle for his customers. Flipkart should be boycotted. Spread the word around the social media

  15. Mandar Pandit says

    Pathetic Service and worst service, Amazon is thousand times better in service. I don’t say they don’t goof up but they do not take customer at task. I feel that Flipkart collects money in advance from customers and doesn’t deliver the product in a months time then they deliver a faulty product and return the original money to customers and thus use that amount taxfree and interest free and then return the same amount which is a type of money laundering and fooling people. someone has to take action against them

  16. vinay golla says

    Dear Flipkart Team,

    It was already 48 hours over and what is the status now. How much time you people need to escalate and resolution? should we have to wait for 1 year or what?
    I need the resolution immediately otherwise i will file a case seriously and i will upload in all the social media sites. My patience is over and this is the last chance for the Flipkart.

    The IFB installation persons called us 30 times in 1 hour yesterday for installation of the washing machine, but we don’t need the installation and we need only return and replacement of another company product that was already mentioned in the previous mail. But still the IFB service people called us so many times this is not the right way.

    Before calling us please read the previous mail 100 times and call us. Just now i have got a call from flipkart and saying again for same installation only not the return and replacement.

    Since one month IFB service persons are sleeping but yesterday they have waked up and called us 30 times in 1 hour because they feared of returning the product. In future if we get any problem they wont come to resolve the issue so we don’t have any trust on IFB company and we don’t encourage any IFB company products.

    I need my money back to my flipkart wallet or replacement of another company product ASAP.

    We don’t need your apologize any more.

    Please don’t call us for the installation any more.

    Dont ask IFB service people to call us to do the installation. It was very irritating because we are very busy with the work and they are calling us so many times.

    Dear Sir

    1. Neeraj says

      I have same issue in my mobile which ordered on 8th and delivered on 12th, I have done return request but still waiting for response, this is 3rd time happened when flipkart delivered defective item. I’ll not buy anything in future

  19. Utkarsh Pandey says

    True bro, I previously faced same type issues on cheap and small e-commerce sites like shopclues, naaptol etc so I stopped purchase items form them. Now I also face same issue. In last big billion sale, I ordered a laptop and now flipkart says we can’t make a replacement if product is not working fine. Customer support asked me to try contact to Lenovo because it is a lenovo product.

  20. Kishalaya Chakraborty says

    Hi I am a customer of flipkart. Today I bought a bajaj 170 solo microwave oven. My name is Kishalaya Chakraborty and order id is OD110300967333245000. For this product I’ve seen a video in flipkart app which was created by flipkart that I’ll be given a free demo and installation of the product. But the delivery boy refused to provide the demo. Then I called customer care for solving my problem they talked very rudely to me and tried to avoid my problem, I am facing real problem with this product,what can I do now. I must say YOUR AFTER SALE SERVICE IS WORST AMONG ALL OTHER COMPANIES.

  21. Rajesh says

    5 years down the line, nothing appears to have changed. I broke my mobile and bought another on Flipkart. Phone delivered in committed time[Wow ! Thrilled at the speed]. Phone doesn’t charge, and original charge of 19% drops to 7% and overheats to the point of being frightening[Uh, Oh!]. Called the help line for a replacement. They wanted me to restart and try updating the software. I refused for two reasons- the phone’s charge at 7% isn’t enough to hold till any update happens and would switch off. I bought a new phone which can be used from day one without trouble. Any equipment which requires a software upgrade to start/do its basic function is not what any customer should be buying. On asking for a replacement, was told while the product has a 10 day replacement guarantee, Flipkart rules require I first try to repair it. This info came after about 5 calls to the toll free no: and extended deadlines of 2 days to revert.So, suppose I do this upgrade would there be a guarantee it will not repeat ? No. I told them they could send their authorized person to fix/upgrade it. I wasn’t going to touch it. After 9 days, Repair person calls up at 12 Noon when I am at work. I tell him to come home at 4 PM. At 4 he doesn’t pick his phone. Next
    day when I call him again, he says I am on leave. No other reference of who I can call for help. On the 11th day when I call, am they will revert in another 5 days.
    Solution figured out buying another phone from a regular store and of course taking Flipkart to the consumer court. Would definitely try to get all possible avenues of social media involved & aware. Perhaps I can be instrumental in ensuring Flipkart cannot cheat anybody else :-)

  22. Nikhil Kumar says

    HiI bought Motorola phone back in November,after six months it shows battery backup issue then I submit it in service centre there I got to know that it has software issue which resolved and I got my phone back in 7-8 days.

    But now again I am getting the same battery issue the phone is still in warranty.

    So,now can I expect a fix solution for this issue because it’s now worst for me it’s not possible for me to go again and again service centre for the same issue.

    I hope you understand the problem which I am facing.

    Nikhil & Mukta

  23. MD SHAHZAD says

    I have purchased one BPL Television for the purpose to gift it to my niece marriage on 04.05.2017 and it was installed in my niece matrimonial house in Aligarh by the official of BPL on your instruction.
    But it is very much surprised and amazed that the said television stopped to work from the next month of its installation.
    Before two days on my numerous complain , BPL service engineer visited the place in Aligarh to inspect the said TV and got some third grade part fitted in the TV and require replacement of the same.
    It is very shameful for me that I believe on FLIPKART for a best services and further I damaged my image in front of my niece.Further , this type of services will be tarnished the image of a big company like FLIPKART as well .

    Therefore, i request you , stop such type of services to a genuine customer and further REPLACE the said Third garde supplied BPL Television as earliest as possible . Order ID: OD109073684785351000

  27. Vikas says

    worst experience and still suffering bcoz of Flipkart negligence.
    Moreover, product company also not able to help to provide the solution
    Had purchased Carrier AC in 2nd week of April and few days back only came to know that installation is not proper hence AC not running now and neither Carrier service and nor Flipkart service centre assisting to rectify the issue

  28. Ankit Gupta says

    Worst service ever seen.
    1.Late delivery
    2.Late return policy.
    3.Lack of touch with customer.
    4. Phone full of scratches. Surprisingly ,how could a phone sealed in a box can have scratches.
    5.Employees taking things for granted,
    If a customer doesn’t picks a call he should be given atleast a second call but no second call was made until I mailed a complaint
    and many more complaints.

  32. Akshay says

    I was forced to opt out from promotion and Flipkart said to me your sales will increase If I opt out the promotion Now my sale fall over 75% Who is responsible?

  33. Ritu Jain says


    I purchased a CANON 700D DSLR from flipkart on 21st December 2016. It cost me around 33,000/-. When i received the parcel, the cap of 50-250mm lens was not getting opened. So i raised a request to replace it.

    Second time when i received the parcel, the seal of the box was already opened and lots of items were missing. The 50 – 250 mm lens was not there, also memory card of 8 GB was also not there in the parcel.
    So again when i talk with flipkart customer care executive, i came to know that second time we cannot replace it. I have to return it. The customer care executive assured me that you will get back your payment by 9th JANUARY 2017. So i placed the request to return the parcel.

    The very second day one service boy came to pick up the Parcel. There was no pickup slip also, to assure me that i have returned my Parcel. After that i was waiting for money to get refunded. On 10th JAN 2017, i called customer care executive of Flipkart, that i didn’t receive any refund, then they told me that you will get back your refund by 17th JAN 2017.

    So i waited till 17th JAN. But no refund. So on 18th JAN 2017, again i called to flipkart customer care executive, they were not able to answer any of my query. So i mailed on [email protected]. Then i receive 1 call from your side by Ms. Farhana. She assured me that, please wait for 24 hours, you will get back your money, i.e. till 19th JAN.

    Today is 24th JAN 2017, still i am waiting for my refund.

    From last 15 days, your team is telling that flipkart has already done your payment, they dont know why it is not reflected in my account. They gave me a reference ID and asked me to visit the Bank. Twice in last week, I visited to bank, and discussed my problem with bank manager. The bank manager told me that, this reference ID has no use for them. Bank cannot do anything in this matter.

    I asked Flipkart to mail me the Bank details also (including A/c no., Bank name and branch, IFSC code) on which you have made the payment.
    But Flipkart didn’t provided me any information regarding that.

    I loose a great amount of Money as well as product. FlipKart is the biggest cheater.

  34. Bhavika Mehta says

    worst experience ever. I did not receive the warranty card.
    The guy did not deliver the item to us. We had to go and take it off.

  35. Utkarsh Agarwal says

    Dear Team,

    I have escalated the issue to your technical team at that time Miss Ramya from Technical support have initiated and promise me to replace that mobile in next 3 days.

    I tried to contacted you people a lot but not response from your side even thou your executives are disconnecting my calls

    I ask you people to contact me but till date no updation only excuses are given.

    Seriously fed up with the products and services given by your side.

    Call me anytime. Waiting Eagerly for the [email protected]

  36. Zujo says

    Real bad service. The delivery guys in Kerala (E kart ) are very rude . They talk harshly and do not intend to deliver. Our very own supermarkets are better .Hope what Bansal feels if his family member is abused….. My time and energy is dedicated to FKART FROM NOW ON .

  37. Khurshid says

    Dear sir. Maine ek phone purchse kiya lekin wo kharab nikla hai ab main agey se kuch bhi flipkart se nhi purchse kronga kyun ki ye dhokha dene wali flipkart hai maine spne group main bhi mana kr diya hai na koi easy return hota hai…. bul shitttttt

  38. Anju Verma says

    Both Flipkart and WS retail and their courier partners EKart are fake companies. I ordered a Lenovo phone and the delivery package only had a charger and a VIM BAR. I lodged a complaint with Flipkart, they accepted the complaint and called up to apologize. They then confirmed a replacement phone to be delivered in 2 days. Today, Flipkart calls up and tells me that my replacement has been cancelled because there was no fault at their end nor at the retailer’s end nor at the courier company’s end. They have cancelled the replacement and they have refused to refund my money. This is unbelievable – this is how they treat their customers. I have been buying products from Flipkart before; but this experience ends everything.

    1. Anand says

      1. Priya.R says

  39. Mukesh says

    Flipkart is fake i will never purchase anything from flipkart
    Flipkart not giving me return or replace

    I am having the similar problem about the refund, they are not ready to provide the refund when the product is not matching with its description mentioned on the website, even after confirming by the technician that the product is not capable to perform like its description is mentioned on the website. Forcefully asking me to keep the product – OD105959835739652000

    Dear Mr. Binny Bansal,

    Order ID: OD205231469174571000 (Garuda Copper Bottom Multi Kadhai Cookware Set)

    you can check the order number when it was order in flipkart and i don’t know for what reason the material was not delivered after 10 days the status shows material cancelled, amount will be refunded. I call the customer care they told it will be refunded within 10 working days, it over. Again I call for the status they told it was refunded, but before calling them I checked the balance where I found that the balance was same as before, no amount refunded. I told the same issue to the customer care, they took the complain again but till date the same problem exist.

    So tell me this is your business strategy to cheat people. kind do the needful by tomorrow itself either refund in my account or pay in cash in the mentioned address.

    Waiting for your quick response.

    Hi sir good evening I have been a regular customer of Flipkart for over couple of years now and have had pleasant experiences with them in 9 out of 10 transactions I have conducted. I had one real bad experience now when it came to installation of my Lg 32LF561D 80c.m(32)… tv. From five days your service is irritating me and still now installation has not be completed by company. very bad experience after this product I shall never be brought any product from your company due to your poor service

  48. Parameshvaran C says

    Dear Sir,

    I am one of the regular customer of Flipkart for more than year now, till now have ordered around 15 products and had pleasant experience for all products delivery and service except the recent order.

    Recently on 6th Dec’15 i have ordered for mobile” Lava KKT Star” which comes without camera specifically for high security zones in IT offices. I have ordered for the same reason as we can not use camera phones in side the office premises. But I have received a mobile with camera, then I have returned the shipment and again I placed order for the same model on 18th Dec’15 ” Lava KKT Star” Black in color but I have received Yellow color mobile, then I have returned the same and placed an order again for the same model on 22nd Dec’15 and received the mobile today (28th Dec’15) with camera and more over it is all to gather different model ordered for “Lava KKT Star” but they have sent “Lava KKT Star plus” which model is with camera.

    Hence I am facing issue consecutively for 3rd time in a row within 20 days of time.

    I am not sure what kind of service is being provided by Flipkart to his genuine customers in recent days.

    How you guys are ensuring QC at your end and customer satisfaction.

    So kindly do some thing and ensure there is no slip in the quality control and customer satisfaction. Also reply me what kind of solution you are going to provide for this repeated error or mistake at your end.

    Dear Sir. I purchased moto x play 32 gb 20 dahs ago from Flipkart. Initially it gave me problems such as heating, hanging,touch senitivity. I filed a complaint and soon got a replacement of my phone. Very happy with the service of Flipkart. But now the replacement has started giving me more new issues! When i checked on internet this phone does give any such issues! It seems as though u have sent me a defective replacement! N now u won’t refund me! So disappointed Mr. Bansal! Never ever gonna use flipkart again!

    hii i have complain about flipkart
    my order number is OD204187293167975000
    i had ordered asus zenfon 2 laser in exchange offer.Flipkart courier partner rejected my old phone by saying wrong model even the IMEI no is same.they had cancelled my order without informing me.I am a loyal customer .if they cant manage exchange offers why they are fooling their customer.my IMEI numaber is same and model they had generated. Rs 2500 is not a big deal.Before cancelling my order they should atleast call me. I can give them 2500. I trusted flipkart instead of amazon …but my loyalty paid me lot….i want to raise this issue on social networking

  56. rgn says

    ordered mi4i for 9999 then order got cancelled due to some glitch at site’s end, then they asked to place the order again and same price would be charged. but now they are pressuring for making a payment of 12999 with a 2999 refund in flipkart wallet.

    Flipkart is a big FRAUD….

  57. S Elbeth Emmanuel says

    Hi Sachin,

    I am a regular buyer from Flipkart. But the last order had made me lost my faith in your company. I ordered for a Puma Shoe to gift to my son. The promised delivery was on 31.10.215. But the delivery was preponed on 19th. I immediately called the delivery boy and said that I will not be available upto 21st and requested delivery on 22nd. But to my dismay the consignment has been returned. I called your customer care but with no result.

    I am really upset by this service. Hope you interfere and set things right.

    Order no is OD404155432909724000

  59. Avinash Kumar says

    Dear Sachin,

    Reallly flipkart is one of the worst E Commerce site. I have never thought that this type of worst service provided.

    I had purchased a Redmi 2 mobile from Flipkart on 29th September and it was Delivered to me on 3rd October to me and when i kept it on charged it gets heated continously when i logged the compalin on it. Engineer cane here and checked it also at that time in office but that time it was not heated when i came at home and kept for charged it got heated and at the same time i took the snapshot of the abttery temperature.
    due to the behiour issues of the Customer care of the exectutive i damaged the Mobile.

    Keep the Rs 6000/ with you enjouy yourself.


    dear sir i purchased dinner set promising a brand quality product from kpro brand costing rs1599/ after rebate of about 65% . what i received is product worth of around rs 500/,this seems to be a road side product. i feel cheated by this company. how can they advertise and cheat people, there is no regulation for them

  61. PBSwamy says

    I have placed an order with flipcart.com on 12th September 2015, thus the order confirmed to deliver the same on 14th September 2015 for Samsung Galaxy J7. At last I didn’t get the delivery from them. Finally it is concluded by flipcart that they cancelled the respective order without giving any explanation. They simply gone through the words delivered by their logistic party, without my knowledge & consideration as well as application. Not even a single time I received a folloup call from flipcart, I was very frustrated because of this. plz

  62. siva says

    I bought Lenovo K3 Note from Flipkart the first piece which i receive was not able to get the network and it was very slow. I have requested for replacement The second piece which i have receive it has bigger problem It hangs up in every 10 minutes I tried with charging it up it get heated i did not install any application or not even logged in to my Microsoft account. There must be software/Hardware issue and i have faced the same issue twice. i was a frequent buyer and i was a very big fan of flipkart but after this experience i expected they will initiate my refund process they again offered me re-placement which i disagree. Now please let me know is 9999 rupees is so much important for one of the biggest online retail company to cheat there customer.

  63. Mariappan Madasamy says

    Hi Binoo Prasad,

    We do not have any option because you are holding us to ransom. Hence don’t further threaten us with your adamant attitude What ever you feel like on delivery, act according to your conscience,

    For heaven sake, please do not repeat this kind of act with any other gullible buyer, You can take it as a warning to your company for betraying the customers with your bullshit system.

    Your CEO is also least bothered about tons of complaints pasted on on various portals. You atleast have a heart and try to salvage the situation to the possible extend. Don’t give any other SHOCK.


    M. Mariappan

  64. Mariappan Madasamy says

    Hi Charles,

    I think you are lacking lot of skills because you keep on repeating the same stuff. Without any push from you, the product will be automatically delivered on 11th Sep. If so, where is you r contribution of “prioritising the delivery through WS Retail”??? I had told you that she is having an ordinary cell phone and hence she can not forward any snapshot as you are requesting.

    As per your own reasoning for delivery in 3 days, you had cancelled the order in the previous evening just 15 hours earlier to assured delivery on 8th Sep. That means the product had already reached the hands of WS Retail from Bangalore. Hence what is the problem in delivering it today itself??? It all leads to one definite conclusion that you are not having the product stock ready even today.

    My demand of 100% CASH BACK if it is delivered only on Friday, 11th Sep is very much valid. Please inform your seniors.


    M. Mariappan

  65. Mariappan Madasamy says


    You have not given proper reasons for unilaterally cancelling the confirmed order. You did try to reach on the concerned cell but your call did not go through. Secondly when she tried to speak to you, your Toll Free calling is not at all having Tamil Language option. It is highly ridiculous to cancel the order without client’s request to do so.

    Even when you called me today evening, I asked you to call after 15 minutes since I was in a meeting. But you never bothered to call me later. That shows clearly how flipkart is function. I have never seen such an arrogant organisation. I understand now from others that you are notorious for supplying used stuff to customers under heavy discount by cheating them. Any how, this is my first experience with flipkart and it will be the last purchase as well.

    You do not have any reasons to offer for your utter failure. I can clearly make out that you are trying to cover up your useless chennai merchant because he may not hane the ready stock.

    If I were you, I will definitely take all possible steps to please the customer with the highest speed so that he / she will revert backwith more orders. Only your CEO Mr. Sachin Bansal should realise the ground realities at his company if at all he is interested to take his company to next level.

    You can not keep on taking the buyers for afree raid for ever.Please ask the seller to deliver it to her by tomorrow or else she may not be interested since she is totally upset with your way of functioning.

  67. Lalit Sethi says


    My concern does the CEO of Flipkart Dear Mr Sachin and Binny Bansal is really concern about all the
    issue or not….
    Because I bought a Lenove K3 Note (Black) mobile from Flipkart and it was deliverd to me on 11th Aug 2015 after 10 day i have found may issue with the mobile…

    Issues are listed below:
    1. Over Heating
    2. Call hanging and call disconnection.
    3. Un-Expectable behavioured
    4. Sensor Issue.
    5. Charging point not working properly.

    For the above reason I have raised the request to replace the mobile but I am just getting the “Messages” that Flipkart technical people will help me out on this matter ?

    My Question does the tech people can help me to rectify the issue or it’s just a simple technique to pass the One month to avoid replacement.

    Thanking for ur valuable feedback.

    I got a call from +918049692000 at 3.40 pm on 24aug 2015 and they told me that they send me a refund against this order “OD203588209475267400 ” but your customer care executive told me that your order is not refundable. this is double game played by filpkart. Please send me a call record copy of mention call or return my product and send my money back.

      I am facing extremely bad experience with flipcart, i ordered an onida washing machine reading the specification which no where mentioned that it is without dryer. When machine came,i cancelled order then and there however flipkart is not ready to either return it or exchange the product with a higher model.

      This is in no way online business. Mr Bansal, if you actually read this,, please take some action on customers complaints.

  72. mahendra chandrakant gujar says

    I baught a 52 LED Eveready make emergency light from Flipkart on 18/07/2015. They gave me message saying my delivery will be in between 24 to 27 July 2015. Subsequently i received a message from Bluedart-delivery partner of Flipkraft asking me to keep ready the amount of RS 1299/ on 22nd Jul 2015. I was tracking my shipment on every day. My shipment was reached at Mangaon, Maharashtra, 35 KMS away from the delivery place. The same was kept on hold from 22nd to 27th July. In between I contacted Flipkart on customer care no for 2 times & told the rep. to deliver the shipment on urgrnt basis & got assurance from them that they will do the needful to deliver the shipment. But shockingly i received a message that they tried to contact me on 27th July & due to unattendance of the call, they have cancelled the order.

    What kind of service flipkart is providing to their customer? After waiting for 10 days, they are asking me to make fresh order for the same. & finally i am doubting that what quality & after sales service they are providing to the customer?
    Total dissatisfication

    Hi Flipkart Team,

    I have placed an Order ID: OD202951381367175600 on Order Date: 26 May,
    2015 10:12 PM

    I had received damaged product on 11th May 2015 and I highlighted the same
    to Flipkart , but still my product is not replaced.

    My parents were telling to do not buy appliances in online, but I placed
    the order through flipkart against to them by seeing flipkart service in
    market. Now I am suffering lot and I am not able to answer to my parents.

    It?s been almost 2 weeks after high lighting the issue to flipkart , and
    almost 1 month from placed the order, but I have not received the proper

    I have spoken more than 5 times regarding this issue. Whenever I give a
    call to your customer care , they will tell ?we will escalate to ?concern

    Are they in Mars or Jupiter ?.. Why taking so much time to give me the
    current status of situation.

    Complaint numbers are


    I did not expect customer care would provide such a worst service even
    after highlighting the same issue to senior level.

    I hope Flipkart escalation department is almost non existent.

    I request you to stop giving false promises and I don?t have patience to do
    follow up with Flipkart and I will be very thankful if you can send the
    product without any further delays.

    I have lost all hopes on this Flipkart. I use online shopping regularly and
    such small incident would hamper my idea of shopping on line.

    In future kindly provide better service at least to the other customers.

    Thanks for understanding.



  75. Debopom says

    I have placed the order OD003145021387642200 on 8.05 am 18th June, 2015 & order shipped around 3 pm, But I got cancellation message around 4 pm. I called flipkart customer support.
    CC person told me that I or someone in my behalf cancelled the order, I got stunned & raised an issue in their twitter support.
    How can another person able to cancel an order on my behalf?
    I received a call from Flipkart & the person told me that that product is out of stock with seller so Flipkart has cancelled the order.
    I have asked him, then why did Flipkart show false inventories for hour? As the product was in stock till 11 am, again came in stock around 12.30.
    Surely many people has ordered that as that price was good
    Even my product also got shipped, If product is oos, then how can a seller shipped the order?
    But, the person has cut the phone without tell me any reason & without even informing me! After that I called again Flipkart support at 8.17 pm
    He has told me that, In his system clearly mentioned that customer has cancelled the order, I took the reference number of contact
    Reference number is 150618088700. Flipkart can check the details.
    Now my question is what is the the exact issue?
    If the product is oos then, why Flipkart has shown false inventories for hours? Is that only for traffic?
    Why did Flipkart guys are giving an offer & promote Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 in flipkart first day offer, if product already oos?
    How can seller shipped oos product?
    Why Flipkart has updated false information in Flipkart website & harassing customer by uploading false information about cancellation?
    Is this type of thing really acceptable from India’s biggest e commerce store Flipkart, When I always recommended flipkart among all relatives & colleagues as most trusted E Commerce brand… So I can ask for the exact reason right?
    I sent a direct message all those things & I got reply by flipkart as direct message in flipkart;
    “Apologies, the price was listed incorrectly due to which Flipkart order was cancelled. This seldom happens and we hope Flipkart’ll understand.”
    That means flipkart cs executives are nothing but liar & harassing customer by giving false information. They don’t offered ame ny compensation or replacement, I want my order , Hope their higher authority will take proper action.

  77. Priyanka says

    I purchased HTC desire 826 from flipkart on 10th May 2015 & within 32 days the phone started its erratic responses…poor touch sensitivity….applications opening on its own, often gets hanged. Called up both the flipkart & htc service centres…but flipkart say its out of replacement warranty period & htc people can’t help as it was purchased online. As mentioned by the htc team, have done factory reset as well…but of no use…Entire Rs.24000 spent on purchasing this phone has gone in the drains. No one takes responsibility. Seems flipkart is selling used or defective items..

    Friends before buying any mobile from flipkart think “101 times” because replacement policy of flipkart is very poor and they will not return if you get any fault mobile…. I have bought 6 mobile from flipkart upto now for my family members and also suggested so many friends to buy mobile from flipkart…this time they have given me fault mobile which has so many issues… After complaining about mobile replacement they accepted request and told me your problem will be resolved within 2 days.. after 2 days one message come written you have been not contacted so your problem will be resolved next day.. on next day one message again comes you have been not contacted your problem will be resolved next day … i am in more problem when one of flipkart representative told me that follow some steps which i suggest you he said me uptodate your mobile and then do factory reset but during factory reset my mobile hang it don’t show main screen only company logo comes i waited for sometimes but samething it shows after removing battery mobile off otherwise it power button don’t work to switch off mobile, after some times i have tried to ON my mobile but again mobile hang i have repeated one more times but result is same during this times i have contacted flipkart so many times and told my problem to him but they said wait our representative will call you.. next day one message comes your request for replacement is disapproved contact flipkart … In this period I have call flipkart so many time they only say wait our representative will call you but not any call comes again I have contacted flipkart for my mobile again and again but they only say wait for next day …. i have complain 3 times by email and by my flipkart id, they accept and reject after 3 day .it is so because they do not want to resolved my issue .. …again after so many call and email to flipkart from my side one call comes she listen my issues and assure me that your problem will be resolved as I am here to resolve your problem after listening the issues of my mobile she says no problem this issues comes with mobile after listening one by one issues she says it is no issues, it means here according to him your mobile will be not replaced if you have got fault mobile it will be with you…after sometime she asked my alternate number so that I have to do some test with your mobile and call you on that number I have given another number… Waited for 1 hour no call comes… one message comes writen your request for request is disapproved …Again I have called and shouted on flipkart what is the problem with you after so many calls and email you have called me and don’t resolved my problem, you asked me my another number and you have not called, what is this ?? you are only accepting and rejecting, what is this?? for how many days this will go on…he said our representative will call you and given me time of another two days after two days call comes and flipkart representative asked me all issues related my mobile and he says go to service centre of mobile, having given fault mobile he says go to service centre and your mobile will be not replace as flipkart mention on site that mobile will be replace within 30 days but they donot replace mobile only cheat people and my mobile is only 16 days old from delivered date and i have given complin after 3 days delivery, mobile has hanging issues, camera issues,heating issues..in all these day they will say you do this and this your problem of mobile will be solved all times different flipkart representative will say you this time your problem will be solved and the result is nothing after some days they accept and reject till 30 days this will continues and they cheat you …… so friends think more n more before buying product from flipkart they not only waste your money but also kills your time by suggesting do this and this and this…. flipkart cheater….

    offered me re-placement which i disagree.

    Now please let me know is 14000 rupees is so much important for one of the
    biggest online retail companyto cheat there customer.
    14000 is big part of my salary moreover i bought this phone for my wife to
    gift her on her birthday now how do you expect me to trust one more time to

    If you guys really want to help me you have to initiate the refund process
    otherwise you can enjoy with my money i wont mind it will be a big lesson
    for me.

    It’s good to introduce new online store rather than introducing each and every time exclusive sales . Entry for this new unique store must be in chain action to get benefit of amazing deal . It also eliminate promotion of exclusive scheme of sale every time.

    Seller: WS Retail Review Seller

    Order Date: 17 May, 2015 1:40 PM

    flipkart is fooling people and is is stating false claim on its website. they are selling duplicate products of genuine company like air condoitioners of DAIKIN. I purchased a daikin ac(Daikin FTKP50PRV16 1.5 Ton Inverter S.) the delivery of the product was on the very second day of the order, but installation was horrible and this installation is not even done by daikin people, rather this is installed by another company(jeevs). they charged me 5350 for the installation for a 3 mtr distance from indoor unit to the outdoor unit. the worst part is even after paying so much of money the installation was not complete, and they said call daikin for further demo. when I called daikin they said w s retail and flipkart are not authorised to sale daikin product and the product is probably not genuine, stated by the representative from daikin who visited to check(paid service), and jeev the installation company is also not authorized to install the daikin ac, so they said the warrenty is void now and daikin will not cover the warrenty. flipkart on its website says that daikin will cover the warranty which is a lie. for the fast15 days I have been calling flipkart and jeeves consumer but they are not solving the issue, they keep on asking for one more day to solve the issue but till date nothing is been done .never expected this sort of service from flipkart .flipkart is horrible and is involved unethical business practise.

    I have purchased Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML on 6 May 2015 and received on 8th May. i am facing a problem with ear piece and call disconnecting.
    I have logged a complaint on 13 May for the same, Replacement (Return ID: 19245334).
    I have received a smart check app from your side and installed on my mobile for diagnosis purpose.
    Yesterday i got a call from Flipkart ( Ms.Susmita) at 2 PM for testing of my mobile. she was continue on phone with me abt 1:10 Hours. she put me on hold many times, saying our server is not working and slow.
    she guide me for smartcheck app ans asking result and put me on hold again n again to confirm from your team.
    she said me i have install app like gayatri Mantra, whatsapp, Dr. Safety etc. so my mobile performance is slow that’s call disconnecting. she told me through smartcheck app my mobile battery 80%, CPU 25%, memory abt 70% uses etc. if my mobile CPU uses 25%, Memory 70% then how can possible mobile performance is slow.
    I asked her how much memory use by gayatri mantra, Whatsapp she told me gayatri mantra 0, and whatsapp 20 MB.
    Dr. Safety app pre installed by ASUS, not from my side.
    she never check connecting on smartcheck app. she check speaker quality. i have heard sound for a 1 Sec. so i can’t confirm speaker quality. can u check any speaker quality in 1 sec audio clip. then she saying me that she have to reset my phone for testing purpose,
    I told her i have reset 2 times. i have swap SIM in other lenovo phone, my sim is working fine in other lenovo phone.
    Call disconnected at 3:10 PM. no satisfactory reply from her side and never called me again.

    Today i called at flipkart and talked to Mr. Naseer for the same issue. i told yesterday conversation to him and he saying me that again for smartcheck App. i have installed again and ready for checking. he told me new thing that i have to 2 Micro SIM for testing but yesterday Ms. susmita never told me that require 2 Micro SIm for testing.
    i dont know why your technical team treat like this.
    Finally i request you to please cancel my Complaint. because i don’t have free time to talk on phone for long time.i am working in a News Paper so i have work in my office. i am feeling handicapped from this mobile because of call disconnecting.
    Kindly do the needful….

    1. mcnspt says

      same mobile ,similar issue, speaker not working.
      went thru all the same process as u mentioned … its extremely irritating. and then after 30 minute long call , ultimately they decided that yes the mobile has defect and they are ready to replace also, but you have to send it to banglore address by yourself…. big lol man big lol……….
      check online the price for sending mobile through courier , its around 600 for local courier unreliable
      and 2000 for bluedart etc
      they even agreed to pay that amount…. but do i trust them now? big nope… they sent a defective mobile once, how can you be sure that they will give 2000 rs flipkart credit for sending them mobile back?
      point no. 1- refund return process is a nightmare
      2 asus is producing defective mobiles.. do search it on net, everybody is sharing same thing
      3 flipkart experience is not smooth.

      i am thinkiing to just buy books from flipkart,, because if its defective, you have simple proof of it.. that too if its expensive on amazon .. a big no for electronics.. they just mess up with you.

      and i was also pondering whether e commerce bubble will just burst in india in near future or not,

      may be people will again go to actual shops in future.

      i am writing this post becasuse of the time those guys wasted in explaning that smartchk bullshit..
      hamari baat pe yakin nahi karenge ye agar ham kahe dedfective hai… aur khud replace bhi nahi karenge..

      consumer jayega kahan?
      ek bitter experience ke vajeh se future ke mobile , normal shops se kharidne ko majboor kar dete hai ye log..

    I bought a Laptop through Flipkart (Toshiba C50-B I0015 Sattelite Core i3) which got delivered on 17th May 2015 (Sunday).
    After unpacking the cover I switched on the laptop and to my surprise the machine does not have an operating system.
    This Flipkart can’t say that it’s not mentioned in the specifications so it does not have, it’s very clearly mentioned in the specifications that the machine is loaded with Linux 64 bit.
    Before writing this I did cross checking job with the seller of this Laptop (Mega Computers / Tabtree) and they say this Laptop comes without any OS. In this case Flipkart provides wrong information to the customers.
    Now after 7 days one Flipkart executive from so called technical team called and told me that the machine has CUI operating system, which I am sure the executive also, does not know what it is and what is the difference between CUI and operating system.
    The funniest part of this is the lady told me that the specification is updated by Toshiba in Flipcart site and just trying to put the blame on Toshiba.
    By saying that they are not ready to return, cancel or exchange the computer. So the customer is a fool to go through their specification and buy the product. It’s customer’s mistake.
    I heard about this kind of fraudulent business activities from Flipkart and this time I experienced it myself.
    I request my fellow readers and buyers of Flipkart please be aware of these cheats.

  86. Nishant kumar says

    This is really very bad for flipkart. I got this product delayed (3 days) after many followups . this is first time when I got this product delayed. Courier boy was also very careless and bad boy. He used some abused word and also told that nobody can do anything against me. This delivery I got from driver who is driving your van.But your delivery boy clearly told that I will not deliver item. Such type of service and emloyee is very shameful for flipkart. So requesting you to please take action against such type of employee.

    Thanks & Regards

    Never buy anything from flipkart, HARRASSED a lot for a charger
    I ordered a Samsung charger and usb cable. The model of charger was ETA-U90IWE. I received the order on May,13,2015 .My order id was OD102791302506145000.I paid the desired amount and when i opened the pack it had only a charger of model ETA-U10IBE and had no usb cable in it.In the bill all the details were alright but the product in there was different . At about 3:20 i called the customer care and they told to call after 7 . The problem was that i had to leave on 15 and i was left with no charger. Then in the hope of exchange i dialled the customer care and now they told that it couldn’t be replaced as the seller had no products left.
    Where did my product go. I ordered it on sale at 259 and now it shows 999.If i got the wrong product then where did my charger go away.The customer care executives asked my bank account details for a refund. Now where would i charge my phone from. I am left with no charger. The customer care executives told that the delivery boy will come and take the product and in about 5 days i will get the refund.I am very upset by flipkart services.
    In the morning the delivery boy came and asked me the usb cable with the charger. He got the information that he has to take a charger and a usb cable. But I didn’t got the usb cable so how will I return it.He made me talk to a person and she told yesterday I hadn’t told any complaint about the missing cable. I was harrassed a lot and after a lot of debate the charger was taken away.He told that it was written perfectly in the bill and my one hour was wasted in this nonsense.Finally he took the charger and I am just displeased a lot from flipkart.

    please sir reply me.

  90. moinak sen sarma says

    Dear Mr Sachin Bansal
    I am a regular customer of Flipkart over the last 6 years and have purchased products more than Rs 30, 000 over these years
    For a long time, Flipkart was the only online shopping website I knew of: clothes, electronics, whatever I required! I had no clue of amazon, snapdeal, homeshop18 etc. I enjoyed the customer services, the spontaneity in reply, follow-up care, the 24 hour services, the quality of products, the packaging…I could go on and on. But alas, this was till 2014. I would still like to believe that Flipkart is the best. But that is not so.
    For the last 1.5 years, your services have been very poor. And I have been thoroughly disappointed.
    1) On one instance I have returned a pair of trousers 5 times over a period of 1.5 months. Finally flipkart declared that the size was not available
    2) I had ordered a pair of shoes for my father, size 44. I received baby shoes that would fit my 3 year old child! Should I laugh or cry?
    3) The shoes were delivered in a plastic packet! What’s wrong with Flipkart? Earlier you used to pack “pendrives in thermocol cases coated in bubble wrap” and send it in big boxes! And customers would appreciate and say” wow! Look at flipkart, how much they care!”
    4) Your warehouse packages anything that’s available without checking the proper details. And customers are then expected to struggle with the wrong product. It seems to me that the primary attitude of your warehouse or sellers is to have the products returned or refunded.
    5) Warehouses and sellers do not update their product availability from time to time. Only when unhappy customers return the wrong product, they realize what is not available and take it off the website
    6) Customer service is unique! Each time new customer representatives (CR) need to be explained over and over again the same problems, same pleas, same woes. Such a waste of breath, waste of time. They seem robotic in their conversations. Standard answers are rehearsed. Apologies seem as if they have scripted. And if any question is asked out of the way, they seem unsure, non committal, evasive or nonchalant.
    7) On one instance a CR told me that she was noting down my complaint and would rectify it. After a few days, when the wrong product was sent again, I called up. The attending CR on phone told me that the previous person had written nothing. So this is total sham!
    8) CRs try their best not to involve their supervisors. U need to really fight it out with them to speak to someone superior. The only way to get a superior’s attention is when I tell them that I will contact Mr Sachin Bansal shortly. Afterall, we are Indians! Threat is the only way to get public attention!
    9) I have been told time and again the customer care and warehouses do not have any direct communication with each other. So if a CR were to personally call up the warehouse to ask if a certain product is available or not, he would not be able to do so because he is not equipped with the warehouse phone number or email id? I refuse to believe this. You are such a large organization. U mean to say your departments are compartmentalized that are forbidden to communicate with each other?
    Mr Bansal, these issues of trousers and shoes might seem trifle to you. There will be a million discontented customers every day. You can’t please them all. Should you really bother and reprimand your subordinates over trivial incidents and customer dissatisfaction? You must be having larger interests and expanding business to take care of. We understand. But please note, that what is alarming the “growing rate” at which customers are complaining. You may wish to check customer forum websites (customerdaddy.com, trak.in, mouthshut.com) to confirm what I am saying. You seem to be the most unpopular online service these days. Ratings have plummeted sharply to new lows in the last 6 months.
    Above all, I am a well wisher for your organization. I would still like to believe that Flipkart is the best of the best! All we can do is to bring to your notice our problems. Rest is for you and your team to act upon. Dissatisfied customers will always have new alternatives, new online stores.
    You need to investigate and introspect where things are going wrong and what you must do to woo your customers back…unless you are planning to do away with your company, renounce all and move to the Himalayas to seek spiritual peace.

    FLIPKART is the worst I have personal experience just this week. I ordered Sun-Max Sc 370 Note Counting Machine on 24th April and I was committed a delivery date of 4th May. I tracked the shipment it came to Goa panjim on 3rd May and left for other two states and came to Mumbai since the item was not delivered to me I raised a complain to check what happened. they replied saying that they will resolve my delivery issue in 2days. The item again came to Goa on 5th May and I was happy it will be delivered to me. But I receive an email from Flipkart customer care my order is cancelled and rebooked and now the delivery is scheduled on 16th May. I sent email again to their customer care asking for justification why it is cancelled and rescheduled for 16th I received two emails after that but no one is answering my question. PATHETIC FLIPKART they should close down their business as they are not fit to run it

    With reference to the order OD202594269657214600 i had booked lenovo A7000 which had a manufacturing defect (the first lot sold by flipkart) the earphone jack does not fit in the handset, while raising a complaint if was promptly replaced by another which had the same manufacturing defect, now flipkart is refusing to replace stating me to come to their service centre the details which their customer care are unwilling to provide by sms. Further mails to the customer care are not being responsed or attended to .

    I am sure there are many other people who feel similarly frustrated(who have purchased lenovo a7000 in the first lot which has manufacturing defects).

    i have purchased and got it on 20th april 2015 the phone honour 4x which i found to be a defective one as the phone is not even able to play with 30% of normal volume like in ordinary phone. And yet its promised to have the DTS sound system with increased volume of 150%. Bull shit not the DTS not even its playing with normal audible sound. Requested a replacement and meanwhile an Asshole from CS team picked up my call and i explained all to him and in meanwhile wen i said its featured with DTS and 150% increase volume (Clearly with big pic and words in Flipkart website) then he asked wer did i see that then i navigated him to the page wer its posted(THE MAIN PAGE OF HONOUR 4x) then the funny thing is he agreed to see all the info as i asked except the DTS 150% increased volume . What the F*** is this . Do this Flipkart think its customers are fools Well il show them who will be fooled if not replaced with new fnctional mobile to me. They said a tech guy will call me on 22nd april (dont know whats problm to call me on 21st) ill wait let me see how they will play now..! Finally guys please dont give a chance to this a**h**** to play with customers hard earned money. teach them a lesson.

    Our case is water-tight and crystal clear and yet @Flipkart is playing truant.

    We ordered for a specific type of server RAM chips as given in their product specifications. They sent a slightly different chip contrary to their own description. On our request they arranged to replace it. But this time totally useless and irrelevant Chips arrived. Fortunately as is our practice, the packet was opened in front of the courier boy under CCTV. And yet the company asked us to contact the vendor the so-called @ONLINEKING [Madhur IT Junction] who in turn blames it on the courier [incidentally their own sister company] and refused to refund.

    Our operations totally came to a standstill for days but the company did not bother. Finally we issued a legal notice and in sheer frustration then lodged a police complaint at the Ellisbridge Police Station. Soon we will be filing a case in the consumer court.

    You are welcome to share your specific and clear cut and genuine complaints with us so that we may explore going to the Gujarat High Court with a PIL.

    Incidentally we are a nationally awarded NGO committed to justice and fairplay.

  97. Reetika says

    Dear Flipkart….. You have actually proved that you are a typical indian copy cat and no way you can match the services of Amazon India. You guys are pathetic cheaters who promise in a day delivery and never comply to that. I order a Lenovo S-8 tablet, and ordered for “in a day delivery paying” 100 extra for that, on 10th April, now it 12th April and no delivery and when called you have a say that pin-code was wrong. NANARAMGUDA PINCODE is 500008. I have also posted a snap sot of that from Indian postal code website.
    For god reason even the pincode was wrong, I didn’t get any calls confirming that Mam we are unable to deliver please help us on that. I had to call 4 times to get the thing escalated. Best above that, when I asked my money refunding you said we cant get until the product reaches back to us and after that in “8 WORKING DAYS WE WILL REFUND”. This shows how big cheats you are. If it happened in amazon, they had some decency to accept thr mistake and refunded money within 2 day. FLIPKART IS BIG CHEATS AND SHOWS HOW OUR INDIAN COMPANY CAN NEVER MATCH UP TO INTERNATIONAL COMPANY BECAUSE THEY ARE WAY BETTER THAN IN SERVICES. BIG DISAPPOINTING IN BANSALS>>>> COPY KARNE KOI BEST NAHI HOTA

  98. Anudy says

    Flipkart is a pathetic place, despite ordering a mobile phone after full payment and paying for within a day delivery on Wed 18-March, I am still waiting to get the phone as on Saturday 21 march. Web update is funny and call center is even more funny they dont have any clue.

    Flipkart needs to show better customer value for someone who pays them upfront.
    I will NEVER BUY from them.

    Order number OD002350655125626000
    Placed on 18 March 2015
    Full payment made for with-in same day delivery.
    As on Saturday 21 march-2105, product is still not delivered

    Hello Sir,

    I am planning to open a trial room for Flipkart @ my city i.e Jamshedpur.
    I am having a space of 14800 (1st Floor) & 13200 Sq. Ft (upper basement) the heart of the city.
    I would be blessed if I get an opportunity to work with Flipkart.

    Hope to get some positive feedback soon.

    Your’s Faithfully,

    Dear Mr Sachin.
    Your team is playing with my orders and lying frequently about the delivery of my item.
    See the two order ids
    1) OD102134113796453400
    2) OD202215453094054400
    The first one was cancelled by you on 26th Feb(showing as RETURNED) after my follow up for delivery. I was asked to reorder.
    The second order was again cancelled on 5th Mar(showing as REPLACEMENT) after I raised hue and cry as they did not deliver.
    I have made 100 telephone calls to your customer care (or customer tormenting?) team. Sent 50 mails which they conveniently ignored.
    Talked to Sadhna, Pratap, Kundan Kumar and several others whose names I donot remember.
    What I sincerely feel is that they are all a bunch of professional liars who are experts in the art of torturing customers.
    I have been a loyal customer of flipkart so far but this horrible experience has now compelled me to turn towards Amazon. Amazon is much better as far as prices of products and prompt delivery is concerned.More important is the fact that their customer care team members do not lie or give false promises unlike your team.
    Well, just do the following if at all you wish to survive in this buyer’s market.

    1. Get my iphone delivered asap.
    2. Refund me the ?1000/- being the difference of price between the above cited two orders. (Your team of liars have already committed this refund)
    3. Compensate me for holding my money for more than 15 days and giving me tremendous mental torture
    4. Train your team to be more professional and promise only that much which they can execute.

    Hope you respond.

    with regards
    Pramod K. Sahoo

    I am really frustrated with pathetic service with flipkart. I had ordered 18 Feb-2015 still order is not deliver.
    It should be need to deliver at 21-Feb but still not deliver now your executive today say that It will take 2-3 days more. Not sure. I really appreciate if you intervene the issue..

  105. uzair Bashir says

    Dear sir
    I am from Srinagar Jammu & Kashmir I want to draw your attention that we people are unable to avail products from your online portal as none of the PIN Code is accepted for the product delivery earlier every thing was smooth and we were happy to shop with flipkart but now we really suffer and are kept away to shop with you so please intervene and make it convenient to deliver products at PIN CODES 190001,190009,190019 so that we may not suffer any more.
    Looking forward for your early respose in anticipation.

  106. navneet says

    Flipkart is having worst customer retention policy. Recently I have purchased a MotoG back cover. I asked for return and needed to proceed with another item instead. Flipkart had refused it saying they do not have refund policy.

    So, on there website products are shown incorrectly and if customers purchases a wrong product, Flipkart won’t refund the amount. It is sear case of misguiding and customer exploitation. They may check the history of my purchases and can provide the refund in case of this mistake, but they feel they are unopposed in the industry and every one have to came to there site. They have to remember Amazon in here and they will loose customers to Amazon by giving zero importance to customers.

    My purchase id: OD001979438519614300

    Now, permanently moving to Amazon.

    Dear Mr. Sachin Bansal,
    I heard lot of people talking about your CS having “gone to Dogs” I wondered how come something like that could ‘go to dogs’. But yesterday afternoon when a lady called on my wife’s mobile and started talking to her – Am I talking to Kanti and when my wife said ‘Haan ji’, the lady still continued ‘Kanti you are having problem with your item’ my wife again said ‘Haan ji and the moment she again started “Kanti, I took the mobile from my wife’s hand (the mobile was on hands free’ as she’s having hearing problem), and took the b….y lady left n right. I lost all my cool. I severely scolded her, for she does not have any commonsense. When my wife had replied twice in Hindi, she still continued in English. Why? And who the hell is she? Is she the boss of my wife? How can she address my wife by her first name? No manners; no netiquettes. Is this the way you would like your sister, or your daughter, or your mother being treated? Customer may not be a king but definitely not a popper. You understand that?
    Let’s forget for the time being about – “going to Dogs” Let’s talk of “Good wombs deliver good babies” And what if the baby is bad? Whom would you blame? The womb or the baby?
    In spite of having written about the English speaking agents of your CS in the earlier mail, this idiot still continued in English.
    Shame on you! and shame on you CS team. If that lady does not call back and tender unconditional & unqualified apologies to my wife then I will not hesitate slapping you with a legal notice. You may be a filthy rich but I have seen more rich people than you, cooling their heels in Tihar Jail at New Delhi, Yes! I am talking about Head of Sahara Group. There’s yet another case of Malaya, the Head of Kingfisher Airlines, who used to spend corers of rupees on models, for a New Year Calendar. So fear God!
    And what I finally realized, that it’s not your CS that has gone to Dogs but its other way. You understand what I mean?
    I wish the mobile had interactive features and I could pull out that lady from the mobile and placed a tight slap on her face.
    Being a senior citizen and a father of two already married daughters, I had always seen my own daughters in all the young girls and had always avoided being harsh to them thinking that suppose my own daughters were working in their place then I just wouldn’t tolerate anyone being harsh or rude with them. But unfortunately this lady with her yanky style and constantly addressing my wife just by her first name, without prefixing Mrs. or suffixing ‘ji’ made me very upset.
    Then there’s no commonsense – forget the individual IQ. If name in the shipping address was Mrs. Kanti Jhanjee and her bank account is just ‘Kanti Jhanjee what difference does it make? When account is opened one has to clearly mention Mr. or Mrs or Km. Isn’t it? It seemed that your people were only finding excuse to reject her claim.
    I’m yet having another proof of the inefficiency & incompetency of your team whereby against order of 2 Nos of same item 2 different items were sent and the second item was cheaper then the one ordered. Nothing happened on my complaints. Since the serial no. of that different item (not ordered) stands mentioned on the invoice I was keeping my finger crossed as Consumer Protection Act 1986 entitles me to file a complaint under Section 12, 17, & 21 of the said Act and also seek compensation under Section 14 of the same Act. within 2 years from the date of purchase. The success of your venture seems to have gone deep down, not only into your head but also in the head of your entire team else you had replied to my earlier complaint.
    I’ll be forwarding the hard copy of this mail on your official as well as your residential address, under registered AD. I know you have of battery of lawyers. But then million Dollar question is that is it worth couple of hundred of Rupees?
    May God bless you with all his wisdom!
    R. Jhanjee
    For & on behalf of his wife, Mrs. K Jhanjee

    Dear Mr. Sachin Bansal,

    I am a flip-kart user and Flip-kart first customer. Ordered Canstar Oxyfryer on 5.12.14 and got delivery on 7.12.14. Found that the powder coated tray had scratches, immediately called the Customer support and notified. Instead of 8.12.14, I got the call back on 10.12.14 that too, after writing mail and calling helpline to remind the same. Finally got replacement on 12.12.14, when I was not at home, my children insisted for the item to be inspected, before it was replaced.
    To their surprise, the new item was broken!! Earlier one had only scratches, but this was broken and the tray was jammed. So the item was returned and the original delivery was retained.
    Got an e-mail today about the successful delivery and some technical person visited home today for installation, who was informed about the scratches.
    Now seeing the experiences of others , I am pretty sure that I am also going to be the victim of the bad practices of Flip-kart, tough only a week is passed, I had booked the Oxyfrier as an Anniversary Gift, but the things ran into trouble.
    Hope, You can do something, before the matter goes out of hand. Regards

    I placed an order on Flipkart for a Vox V102 tablet which i received today but when i open the outer seal I was surprised to see that the seal of the mail product box was broken and the product was having so many scraches on the screen and one keyboartd was mentioned on the website that i will receive along with the Tab that also I have not received. This is very surprising that the same review was alredy mentioned on your website but the same has not been improved till now. I want a replacement ASAP

    Sub : Order No. OD000785635845783200 Handset Nokia 108

    I have been using Flipkart since long but never experienced such sort of cheating ever. I bought this product with a delivery option at my mothers’ residence. She is 60+ She has started complaining of voice issue and phone not ringing properly on which my brother took this h/set to Nokia service centre.

    Nokia showroom has confirmed that this handset Nokia 108 is not original and they have also provided the snapshop of original and duplicate handset which my brother has shared in whatsapp.

    Today I have lost my trust with a loss of 1600/- and in future for any high purchase I will think thousand times.

    Expecting resolution considering customer delight and refund of this amount, also action taken against this Vendor Shri Shiv Electronics.

    Dear Sir/Mam,

    I have been using Flipkart since long but never experienced such sort of cheating ever. I bought this product with a delivery option at my mothers’ residence, Indore. She is 60+ She has started complaining of voice issue and phone not ringing properly on which when my brother had visited he took this h/set to Nokia Service Centre. The Nokia showroom has confirmed that this handset Nokia 108 from Shri Shiv electronics is not original and duplicate product. They have also provided the snapshop of original and duplicate handset together which justifies the statement. My brother has shared in whatsapp with me.

    Today I have lost my trust with a loss of 1600/- and in future for any high purchase I will think thousand times.

    Dear Mr. Bansal

    I really appreciate that you guys are doing very hard and sincere efforts to resolve all customer complaints and serving us all 24×7.

    I am very small, but regular customer of flipkart, i am working as one of the brand ambassador for our flipkart.

    but this time, things are not going well. i have given purchase order of digital camera on 15th October and it was supposed to reached me till 27th October. but it is late and now no one from you able to help me satisfactory.

    i know the order value is very low in comparison to your business volume. but the reason for purchasing this camera was to capture my new baby birth moments which is expected on 2nd November.

    i was very much excited about this purchase, and as i believe flipkart as part of my life. i would request you to please look into the matter on urgent basis.

  117. Rahil Pereira says

    I had a very similar distasteful experience with Flipkart. During the Big Billion Day sale, I ordered a Moto G 2nd Generation Phone which ultimately costed me Rs. 11,699/- along with the discount. Because of the supposedly huge rush, the order status wasn’t updated immediately. When I called up customer care in the evening, I was told that the order didn’t go through and that I would have to make a fresh order. Despite repeated attempts, I couldn’t go through. In any case, the first amount of Rs. 11,699/- had been paid and so I waited for a refund.

    5 days later, when I called to check up the refund status, I was told that the order was placed and that I would get the phone. 2 days later again when I called, I was told that the order didn’t go through and that I’d get a refund within 8 business days. Almost two and a half weeks later, I still hadn’t got my refund. To every email that I sent them, I got the standard reply that they did not receive anything. I furnished them proof of payment from the bank and only then did they start trying to help me out. It’s very disappointing to see that an orgnaisation like Flipkart deceives it’s customers by telling they haven’t received any payment and that it needs repeated emails and phone calls from us to confirm that they indeed have received money from us. It’s been 3 weeks now since that fateful day and I am still awaiting the money. Flipkart is such a disappointment. I really pity the person who has to suffer the whims of customer care. They don’t seem like the bunch of people who can help you out with anything. Just have to go on the joyride they take you, and I can guarantee you, once you’re done with it, you’ll be sufficiently harassed and exhausted,

  118. Susheel says

    Open letter to Sachin – Not sure if it would ever reach him or he would take an action – I’m sure this will not make any difference- Worth giving a try

    Advice: Instead of spending millions on advertising , I would say they need to spend money on customer service training and fransching with the right retailers

    Dear Sachin Bansal,

    This is the letter I have sent to Flipkart and I haven’t still received any response.My parents(both in their 70’s) have made several attempts to contact with the Flipkart customer service team for a proper answer, until now they have been given half a dozen contact numbers to just to get their TV installed,How ridiculous is that . You cannot expect 2 senior citizens who have no clue about technology to Install a smart TV. They have been promised by the flipkart team that they would send someone through, this has been going on for a week or 2 now. Right after I sent an email couple of days ago ,a flipkart staff called my parents and promised that they would be there on 28th october to install the tv , but as usual they did not turn up , yet again my parents have had to cancel their previous engagements. This has happened more than 3 occasions –

    This is not the first time where in my parents had to call the Flipkart customer service, last year

    I have been a regular Flipkart customer, but seems like I would have to look somewhere else for a credible,reliable online shopping experience.

    Incompetent staff

    Issue: Order Delivery / Other
    Message: Hi Flipkart, I have recently purchased a Sony Bravia Smart TV worth around 84,900(for my parents, Im based overseas and my parents in Chennai. It has not been a smooth process so far for my parents, they are elderly citizens and it is not expected that they run from pillar to post , just to get a TV installed, They have been making calls to you guys and each and everyone has been directing them to someone else, I have not bought a small iron box, this is a tv we are talking about. Is that your service ? once the money is paid you dont care about the after sales service ? There has been no apology no reconfirmation about the installation , you have made my parents wait for 3 days , promising that the installation will be done and even messaged them but no one has even bothered contact them again. This is just ridiculous. We need answers . Does this mean a person has to be connected to either politicians or someone powerful to get a Tv installed ? Do le me know if you need a refer

    Today, I had one of the worst customer service experiences with Flipkart. I had ordered a product on 6th Oct, which hasn’t been shipped as yet (as on 20th Oct).

    I called up the Cust Service no. and spoke with Amir Ali. His voice on the phone was that of compulsion….a total put off right away. He said nothing could be done and that the order should be delivered by 23rd Oct. My going on leave tomorrow had no impact on him. That I was going on leave and that there would be nobody at home was my problem.

    He refused to let me speak with the manager. When I insisted on doing so, he put me on hold for 6 mins (certainly unacceptable). He then told me that I will need to call later to speak with the supervisor. On asking for a call back, he bluntly said that the supervisor won’t call me back…..I needed to call.

    This experience was full of apathy on Amir’s end; he wasn’t interested in resolving any issue and spoke as if he was disinterested in anything.

    The service levels of Flipkart have definitely plummeted big time. The quality of people they have hired is sub par. I will be extremely wary of shopping on Flipkart.

    My issue still remains unresolved.

    1. Oindrila says

      I can totally empathize with your situation. I had a very bad experience too. The executive actually called me up and was so rude that he even forced me to cancel my order even when I did not want to do so. Flipkart’s customer care executives will not try to understand, instead will force you to lose your calm to such an extent that you will end up yelling and then threaten you by telling you that they will disconnect the call.

  120. Paramesh says

    Dear All,

    I have ordered the Item through Flip-kart on 9th Oct Under the Order Ref#
    OD000960419363950100 & Expected to get the delivery by 16th Oct , But till 17th Oct ordered status was showing “Processing “where-in Flip kart website shows the delivery date on 16th Oct, When I called the Customer care they are saying that item will be delivered by 24th Oct ,Simply flip kart is making their customers Fool by giving False statements in their own website. When I asked about re-fund they are not ready to give .this is simplest way of making money by Flip kart.

    1. Balaji N says

      Same thing happened to me as well. Booked a Moto G 2nd generation on 16th to gift on the 17th, I got a mail that the product would be delivered by 17th before 7 PM. But i havent. Customer care executives are so ruthless and they arent listening to the customers. After talking to the customer care, i got a mail that you query has been escaleted and the same will be resolved by 21st Oct. What nonsense? Is this the reason why I paid Rs. 90 extra? These idiots should not be in their business at all.When they dont know to keep up their promises, why should they advertise saying “guaranteed one day delivery”? Atrocious.

  121. Arijit Sarbagna says

    Flipkart has now started playing around by the “Flipkart First” service. While taking the service – I was assured of “In a Day” shipment from WS Retail. It did work on the first transaction. But since then – whatever you try to purchase (all from WS Retail – per Flipkart First agreement), they all come under standard shipping. I tried reaching customer care on multiple occasions – they simply had no clue why this was happening. Then I wrote a mail to [email protected] – where Mr. Bharath took 2 days to respond staing – “not all the products you’ve ordered for are not available to the nearest hub”. How ridiculous – as for the last 2 weeks I never found a single product – which was available under In a Day shipment. I not only demand full refund, but compensation for the harassment.
    This is a pathetic downswing of such a great portal.

    1. Ashish says

      I had even bitter experience. though i bought the product on big day i.e 6th oct, i was promised for the delivery on 16th. till 5 when there was no status update on the site, i inquired on customer care. as usual the clue less crew there replied stating the solution on my problem will be responded on 20th oct, and don’r know when the shipment will delivered post that. Boss if you can’t manage then why are you running the business and making fool to the consumers. “[email protected]” is a one way communication, call center the Morons are sitting, actually you have no way to reach to management, i am now worried as i have bought this product on pre paid option, will i be getting the product or my money is safe?

    2. sandeep shetty says

      thanks for the lousy start to 2015 ensured by FLIPKART to me. Call to customer service started at 23:27 31st Dec 2014 and lasted till 1:30:15 1st Jan 2015 (a full year). Call disconnected by TL Ahmed. 3 levels and can certify them all as excellent telephonic goons: Adil – Customer Associate reporting to: Nawaz – Floor Supervisor reporting to: Ahmed – Team Leader reporting as per their info to me. what i got for ordering: order rejected as per delivery though he never arrived nor was a given a call (its a cascading process as per Ahmed who loved to use the word cascading), ordered rejected at 9:05pm as per customer service despite order delivery to be before 9:00pm, order cancelled but not by me, refund initiated without my request. Moral of the story: Flipkart is greater than customer. for them its “Our Way or Highway”.

    Dear Sir, I purchased washing machine from flipkart on 6th Oct 2014(big bang day) . The product was shown in stock and accepted payment from my card. After few minutes I got message from flipkart saying they have cancelled my order as it was in high demand and to give equal opportunity to all buyer. I have message and email for the same. Today i.e. on 8th Oct 2014, I again got email that it would be delivered by 21st Oct. I do not understand as flipkart had policy of no cancellation on big band day. It should apply equally on them as well. On first hand they accepted my payment then without my consent cancelled my order and after 2 days resumed my order(All without my knowledge) . I called there customer care executive and got response they can not help and cancel it(when they cancelled my order themself and status in my orders is still in cancelled state) . They have not provided any other email ids on there site for further escalations . After my order was cancelled from flipkart, I ordered it from other site. I have no utility for 2 washing machines at my home. I am planning to take my case to consumer court as I am very frustrated with my experience with flipkart and also with customer care helpless response. Flipkart is behaving in autonomous manner cancelling and resuming orders at their discretion. This is really pathetic and I have lost all trust in them(which I built over years). My order id was – OD000945418997047100 I am still getting its’ status as cancelled in my order history

  126. Ankita says

    Guyz..Please dont buy products from Flipkart. They fool their customers.

    This incident happened with me on 6th October, the so called Flipkart Big Billion Sales Day!!

    I was very excited for the sale and waited for the whole day for a good offer to appear.
    Suddenly I found one,Moto E(Mobile worth Rs7000) was available at Rs 1500 on Flipkart.
    Attached is the screen shot of this offer.

    I ordered two mobiles(order id : OD3009448236423) and was very happy that at last my time got utilized and I cracked a good deal at Flipkart.
    After placing the order I received order placment confirmation mail as well.

    Suddenly after few hours, i received a mail from Flipkart stating that my order is cancelled and the money will be refunded in my account.
    I was shocked because the tag line of Flipkart’s sale day said “No Refunds & No Cancellations”

    when I called their customer care. and asked them to deliver my products, 3 representatives waisted my time and there names are:
    Vishal(Level1 Support), Bhavik(Level 2 Support), Shailesh(Assistant Manager).
    Shailesh said that right now he is not the correct person to answer my queries and will ask someone from the product team to
    call me on 7th Oct 8pm.

    I straightaway told them that i don’t want a refund I just want my products.

    But on 7th without my consent they forcefully refunded money in my Bank Account, which is totally unacceptable and I haven’t
    received any call from their product team.

    I am really shocked that a brand website can do such irritating act with their customer.
    I would urge you all to please like and share this post as much as possible so that these so called leading online websites
    learna a lesson that its not acceptable to make fool of customers and play with their emotions.

    I swear that from now onwards I will never ever buy a product from Flipkart.

    Very very Very Very Very very Very Very Very very Very Very Very very Very Very experience.

  127. Yogesh says

    Hi Team,

    I am very very upset while writing this mail.

    Flipkart Offered Big Billion Day offers to the world but I feel this was fake.

    I liked offer Nokia Lumia 1020 Combo Offer 16558 (further I would have paid thru Standard Chartered credit card to avail 10% discount), whole day I tried to order through my phone. But it continued to show technical problem.

    I called up Flipkart Customer Care also to take help, I waited for around 35 minutes to get call connected, but no one took the call.

    Now I need Flipkart should give place an order on my behalf, else I will go to public grievances forums.

    Attaching screenshot displaying offer for your reference.

    It is very bad experience this since i have started shopping with flipkart.
    More than 20 days passed neither I received my money back (against double payment)
    nor i received any proof of transfer of amount to the bank, if any.

    Dear Flipkart,
    This is to inform you that the new Xolo Play Mobile which I received day before yester day getting almost the same issue.
    On every 15 minutes mobile gets hang and I had to pull off the battery every time and again 15 to 20 minutes facing the same issue.
    I am very disappointed and sad now what to do. I did hard reboot, Master Reset and different types of troubleshooting however problem remain same.
    I spend more than 12000 on the phone and not getting the result. I am very disappointed with Flipkart as I am a premium customer of your site purchase more than 5 mobiles in last 5 months and getting very bad experience??
    I feel that this is a not authentic product?? I want different handset or refund the money.
    I want you to call me and arrange the return of this product. I can’t handle that crap product as I am frustrating on every 15 minutes by doing the same thing.
    Flipkart is now more than a billion $ company and I can’t expect this kind of service and product from Flipkart.

    Dear Team,

    This is really surprising to get a the below response from your side after
    the confirmation of the order. This is totally not acceptable. I already
    confirmed the order yesterday in the evening by sending the message to you

    Flipkart is really worst company having all useless fellows as customer care executives. Definitely AMAZON is going to occupy the market.

  137. Abhishek Goel says

    No one taking care of it. I have been continuously grilled by poor service from motorola and its customer service centers in chandigarh vignesh serice center

    Gone there to check my battery problem which used to drain with in 2 hours from complete charged even without using
    i.e. “Stand BY”

    But after having life changing experience from there my phone got fully scratched by those vignesh guys and they told battery now changed after 3 days and let us know if problem persist

    Like they guys dont have any responsibility to check and confirm Is customer totally free to roam around such employees who making people fool in daylight

    Now again after battery change battery life didnt working well

    Also the smart guy on reception told checked motherboard etc god knows what’s the problem

    But this something really frustrating only in 2-3 months this can happen to a device cannot imagine never happened to 500 rs phone

    dear sachin bansal ji,ceo, flipcart,this is regarding my oda7164961756mjb0v00. the oleba analog ladies watch was delivered to my friends address but its strip was broken.i requested for replacement.but your people are demanding the packet in which the watch was sent.who keeps the packet in this age of use and throw. further it is said that it should not be used. being an engineer you know very well that any thing can not be tested without using it.in stead of feeling sorry for delivering defective item to the customer you are dictating your terms???? therefore please tell your men to replace the watch with a good piece and keep the name’easy return”.

But i am surprised when i called flipkart customer care center they said this order has been returned due to damage or some other reason, so you have to again register and buy on next sell they launched a complain vide complain number is 140909038374. But till now at a customer point of view i had paid money in advance & got the product in sell now why should I go again with the processwhen it is not my fault, cause flipkart never despatched the product.

      Dear Mr. Sachin, same thing has happened to me today. CC is claiming that I have multiple ID so I am in bulk buyer category. when there is pre registration process, and I have a registered only one ID for this sale, how other IDs are coming into picture? and multiple ID were also ctreated because of server issue at the time of MOTO E sale. my order no is ODA7107251958HGUSH00, requested CC to revive the order after explaining every thing but no hope…. looks like they have blacklisted to buy anything because i used multiple IDs that too because of the server issue of flipkart,

  143. Manoj Jain says

    This is regarding an order i placed with your website and received on August 20,2014. I received Moto G phone along with a back cover. My order# OD40817189164.
    This product does not worth more than Rs.80/-. I have placed several orders in past as well with flipkart but never got product and service like this.
    As per your website, its key feature is to protect bumps and drops of phone. After looking at the product, i am not sure how it would do so. It is just a cover that will replace original cover. No added protection.
    I am not satisfied with the back cover and wanted to return it and for same reason called your customer care.
    Mr. Mohd Saif replied from your end and asked me to do it online. I tried doing that with him over the phone, but it did not work. During this time he explained me some features of this cover which are actually not correct. For eg. This cover has Matt Finish as per your Agent.
    He wanted me to call back and said next person will do it. When i asked if next person can, why cant he. Then i asked him to escalate the call to his Manager(senior), he replied that they are busy on another calls and can not answer right now. I decided to wait. But after some time he said he wont transfer the call.
    When i asked him to share name of his senior/Manager. He said it is his personal information and can not share. Please help me in understanding how is it a personal information? I never asked for his mobile no. or some other personal details.
    This kind of behavior is not expected from a reputed company like you. Kindly get this cover returned and offer me refund.
    Also please tell your agents to share correct information. They should gather complete information about the product before saying that over the phone.

    I posted this complain on Facebook. But no one bothered to respond. Same thing happens after sending mail to their customer service.

    Pathetic Company with worst services.

    I purchased one HP laptop (OD40619067673) on 19th june from flipkart.
    on this particular day, paticular product there was 10% cashback with standard chartered credit card.But, till now i haven’t received my cashback.

    I called customer care with ( Prabhu J Bangalore ) and complaint number is 140813073765 , He is asking me for any snapshot, is it the way to get the cashback offer, its really strange.You guys don’t have History so that you can check on which date , on which product what are the offers, what kind of policy flipkart following, you should have backup of this information.

    I was not expecting this kind of service from flipkart :(

    Please resolve it ASAP and refund my 10% cashback, otherwise i will go to consumer court.

    I had ordered a Moto G (16 GB, Black). The set i received was faulty. I made a complaint immidiately regarding the same. Your executive person is not picking up the item. He says that he can only pickup the item 10:00 a.m. . Moreover, he is rude and says he can’t pick up the item any time after 10:00 a.m. Please note that i am a working journalist with a leading news channel and hence i am not at your executive’s disposal at a time given by him only. Its been eight-nine days since placed my order. Kindly, show some professionalism and revert me ASAP with a solution.

But till the time I have not received the Mobile phone, after that I call your customer care number 1800 102 3547 your representative told me that due to some courier agency problem the excepted date of delivery is 12th August 2014.

    Dear Mr. Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal,

    With reference to my order for a nissan remote controlled car (Order No. OD40721155576) with delivery date of 2nd August 2014 has not yet been delivered. I was informed that on 24th July 2014 it had reached at Bhiwindi to some Ekart Logistics who has no contact number nor the address was provided so I myself could help collecting the goods.
    I am writing you just to state that I saw your artical (A billion dollar bet: Seven reasons why Flipkart is hot in the market
    Hindustan Times-30-Jul-2014
    Flipkart now worth $5 billion, sets sights on $100 billion tag

Any one in Mumbai if he strives hard and with proper backup can rise from rage to a position he had assumed for himself but if the base on which he rises is weak then it is really bad for his rise which can crash any time. In the end I just request you that its not that we order goods for our loved ones but our sentiments are also connected with it, so please don’t play with sentiments.

    Dear Mr Sachin and Binny Bansal

    This is to bring to your notice a case which happened with me On 11th July 2014 I placed an order for Asus Zenphone 5 Order ID OD40711011891 stating that it would be delivered to me when the phone comes in stock but today the 17th July when I checked the status of my order I am shocked to see that the order has been cancelled from the flipkart team no reason mentioned and I really needed this device to gift it to someone special as a birthday gift on 19th July 2014. More over i came to know that the phone is now out of stock though it came in stock in between then I need to know the resin why the order was cancelled moreover when I called the Customer Service team they are telling me that the order was cancelled as I dint answer my phone for confirmation which is utter lie and highly not acceptable I too work for e-commerce Industry with one of your biggest Competitors as Manager India Operations and I know things don’t work like this.

    I would just like to bring to notice of everyone i know personally and everybody going though online post that please do not buy things from flipkart.com in case of urgent need as you may get doomed like me.

    More over flipkart.com customer service team has no solution to give me but a single work “Sorry ” but i may ask you will that “Sorry” fulfill my dream of gifting my loved one Asus Zenphone 5.

    I would not recommend anyone to buy from flipkart.com in the hour of need as you guys will be Sorry for your self.

    Thanks and Regards

    My Bad experince dealing with FlipCart – OD40616092065 – Incident: 140619-044480. I wanted to purchase a home use Fire Extinguisher. Initial searches lead to get images of a fire extinguisher and I ordered for it. To my surprise I found a piggy bank delivered. The image on the site was MIMICing a live fire extinguished, with caution details and its dimensions of a real one. Though there is return/exchange policy, the customer care team is highly negligient to deal and suggest to escalate the matter to ‘[email protected]’. I have not received any acknowledgement from the resolution team.

    Guys, WHOM are u intended to cheat. My local stores will be glad to exchange for a product which is NOT the intended / match my expectation. Mr. Sachin Bansal, this is how you want to grow your company ??

    Hello Mr. Bansal,

    I was also a big fan of Flipkart and few days back ordered for a watch for me, when it reached me today I have seen that watch is completely not appropriately suitable for me. I had read FAQ and clearly written that customer can return the material and for the same I had emailed to customer care but they had deny for the return policy. Since afternoon I was mailing but no one had bothered to call me even from customer care division. When evening I had asked to file a case into consumer court then got call from customer care and again same things shared to me which I had received on mails.

    Tomorrow I am going to file a case against Flipkart and as a responsible person I will also add your name Mr. Sachin Bansal.
    After file case I will also call Press / Media at home and arrange a interview on this. I will hand over all the details to Media / Press along with clearly name of Flip Kart.

    I would request you to do not try patience level of customers.

    Dear Sachin and Binny Bansal

    In February 2013, I purchased a product critically needed for treating an illness for Rs 18,500 from Flipkart. The item carries a 1 Year Warranty. Within 3 months, despite personal and careful handling, it stopped working. Since then, for the past 4 months, I have been carrying on a weekly correspondence with both Flipkart and the vendor (iRest Technologies Pvt Ltd), all to no end.

    Meanwhile my medical treatment has been at a standstill for this entire period, causing considerable pain and concern.

    Both companies keep promising to replace the item immediately but so far no action has been taken. I have been lied to over and over, being told that the replacement item will be shipped within two days on several occasions and once even that it had already been shipped. Mr Venkatesh Prasad, the Manager of iRest Technologies has consistently lied to me about the replacement. I have talked to several senior managers at Flipkart, including Girish B., Agun Pamei and Shubajit who on each occasion re-ask time consuming questions about the order – information, it turns out that they all along have on the screen in front of them – followed by a promise of immediate redressal but then they do absolutely nothing. I am forced to conclude that they are not just liars and swindlers in their own right but are following company policy and a deteriorating corporate culture. Flipkart and iRest seem to be becoming online frauds and offline bandits.

    All I want now is to get my money back. It is pointless getting a replacement from iRest, given their lack of ethics, I will only get a used or second-hand item with limited life.

    I feel totally cheated and plan to take this issue to the consumer court in New Delhi and to the public through the Internet, unless I receive a bank draft of Rs 18,500 before the weekend (5 October 2013).

    It’s going to be awfully difficult for either your company or the ones you source from to maintain the customer and investor base they will need in the future with this kind of track record or corporate attitude. Just look at the complaints on sloppy customer service on the Flipkart Facebook page, their blog and the rest of the Net.

  165. Badri says

    Hello Mr. Sachin,
    I share the view of some of the folks here… the experience with flipkart is going down for sure and the customer service is on the decline. I purchased a mobile phone from flipkart and upon using for only 2 weeks the phone started to perform poorly – hanging and slow and unable to connect to internet. I called flipkart to lodge a complaint and to return the product. Two calls and nothing happened. There was a call from flipkart the first time around, but given I was in office, could not take the call. No one bothered to call a 2nd time. I again called flipkart and a complaint was taken again. This time no response from flipkart. I called a third time (all within 5 days) and I insisted I talk to a supervisor. He told me that I have purchased a phone which has a “damaged product” return policy of 10 days and that given I purchased from a retailer, the 30-day replacement policy does not apply. I read through all the contents and no where was I able to get this message. It is disappointing to note a company such as flipkart is spiraling down and does not care about its customers.

    I am unsure if this message will get the required audience, but anyway thought of penning down my sorry experience with flipkart.

  166. Ravi Tyagi says


    I had bought Samsung Galaxy Grand on 20 of May 2013 under the promotional program of 15% cash back on ICICI credit card. The cashback was to be credited to customer’s credit card account by 16of June. But I haven’t got the cash back yet. I contacted ICICI bank and as per them he credit transaction has to be done from Flikart’s end.

    I have been writing to Flipkart with all the details (including bank account and credit card account details) for over 1.5 months now but their dumb staff is just stupid and is lingering on with this issue. They are just simply replying that the credit would be done within 2-3 days and every time they are generating another service request number. Now, I feel that this cashback offer was just a lucrative act of ICICI and Flipkart to trap the innocent buyers.

    Could someone please forward my issue to Flipkart’s CEO Mr. Sachin Bansal so that he is aware what is going on openly.

    Hello Forum Members and attn: Mr Bansal, CEO, FlipKart.com ( if you are reading this ).


    I had ordered (OD30620064172) Lowepro Flipside 500AW camera backpack for my Ladakh trip which is starting coming weekend considering the maximum shipping time as mentioned on the flipkart.com. Firstly the wrong bag was delivered to me and upon calling customer care representative the replacement case has been opened to correct this order and the I was assured that I it will be shipped before my departure. However I do not see any progress in this regard since last 3 days.

    Today I called flipkart.com again and spoken to lady named Soumya. After certain time she ignorantly disconnected the call and I was redirected to feedback IVR.

    PLEASE NOTE: If I do not get this shipment before Friday EOD, I will have to reject this order and demand for refund (no store credits).

    Hello Forum Members and attn: Mr Bansal, CEO, FlipKart.com ( if you are reading this ).

    My mails to your Customer Service ( Some serious shaping of some softskills needs to happen in your CS dept – they do not even know how to handle a customer and like a parrot repeat the same story again and again ), gets a standard reply

    This mail is the followup for a book which was made available on Pre order. Granted, that at the time of preorder, you might not know the release date, but if the same case remains after 2 months, does that show a lack of understanding customer’s problems or complete apathy – where will the customer go… duh duh duh )

    Dear Sachin,


    I have purchased 4-5 products till date from flipkart and was the fan of flipkart but a recent indecent with flipkart making me to change my mind , trust level has gone down. I will tell you in brief about the problem

    On 1 st May 2013, I saw the listing for Epson l800 printer, Status was “Available”, I placed an order for Epson L800 printer, with the prepaid payment option. expected delivery date was 11th of may 2013.

    I was waiting for the tracking number as everyday customer care people were telling that the procurement is in process and we will deliver the product by 11th of may, so i was quite. Then as i didn’t receive any tracking details by 8th of may, so i just sent a mail saying that where is my order, i got a revert that ” we couldn’t procure the product and it may delay by 2-3 more days “.

    Then I asked them to deliver the product on time otherwise compensate me for same, so I got a revert of Rs. 500 compensation, I didn’t accept then person called Imranulla requested me to wait for 1-2 more days to get back on compensation on 9th may evening.

    At evening time around 7.30 , suddenly I got a mail/sms that OD30501063319 have been cancelled due to unavailability with supplier.

    Is it because i demanded for the compensation ???

    Now the next question, if the product status was available at the time of placing the order then how come Flipkart is cancelling the order and saying that ” order have been cancelled due to unavailability of the product “.

    Flipkart come to know the unavailability of the product after 8 days of placing the order ????

    There are so many question’s are arising & even now i doubt whether i will purchase anything from flipkart in future or i will allow any of my friends to purchase anything from flipkart.

    Can flipkart return my time wasted from 1st may to 9th may, It’s not even 9th may. Now i will have to wait for placing any other order on any other place as my money is also blocked because of this transaction and will be refunded in next 7 working days. So its a total loss of more than 15 days.

    Do you think this is the professional way of treating a loyal customer???

    There is no revert of the compensation demanded after this ” UNEXPECTED CANCELLATION DONE BY FLIPKART ”

    I feel the corrective action will be taken by flipkart.

    Wish you good luck.

    Thanks your review savedmy money and harrasment from Flipkart

  177. Pankaj says

    I also agree that Flipkart’s service is getting worse by the day. In particular their reverse logistics is pathetic and you can’t expect any cooperation from Flipkart customer care. I ordered few clothes from Flipkart. Unfortunately, for few of them, size was not appropriate and I requested for exchange. For one item, they didn’t have the desired size for replacement and I was told that the amount will be refunded for it. I have been trying for past 15 days, and customer care guys always assure me that in 1-2 working days they will resolve the issue. I am still waiting. There has been no response. Its like if I am needy I should pursue them, they just don’t care.

    I have been a flipkart customer since long. Luckily, I have learnt the lessons at not a very great price. Thank God! it was not some expensive electronic appliance. it was just a shirt.

    Its not a matter of few hundred or few thousand. Its a matter of commitment. No business can survive if they start taking their customer for granted.

  178. Nitin Gaopande says

    Hi Sushrut, is this solved by FK? Can you comment? Recently the iStone issue also came up. DId Saching Bansal respond to this?


    My son ordered Samsung Galaxy worth Rs 18999.00 Order NO 21224031715 on 24th December 2013 TRANSACTING The amount before delivery and recieved a tampered parcel . He has returned the parcel as guided by customer care with assurance to get amount refunded.Till 4th March 2013 response to multiple calls were please wait we are processing.Mr. Bansal how long your people will keep stretching it?

  180. Akhil Teotia says

    I have faced a similar problem though not for the same product. I had shopped earlier on Dec 12th and my debit card was charged twice and only one product has been delivered to my place. I have sent 3 letters to the customer care but apparently theyr least interested in doing their job. This is harassment for online shoppers.

    Placed an order on 12th nov 2012, order no OD21112181990.The courier tracking page says that the consignment has reached the local office on 16th nov.Till now the courier is not delivered.Neither have I received a call from the courier.On contacting flipkart customer care multiple times, they say, they don't have the contact details of the courier and that they cant assure the delivery of the courier..These people are totally irresponsible for prepaid orders..If it was a COD, they would have called 100 times by now.Shame on you Flipkart.

  183. Siraj says

    Hi can anyone tell me the email id of Mr. Sachin Bansal ??

    1. Santosh Ramanand says

      The true colors of an organisation are known by the way they handle customer service. Flipkart is exposed about the bad service. Today I am stuck with a defective Laptop supplied on 24th Aug 2013. Inspite of repeated followup and emails I get is empty promises that it will be attended to in 24 Hrs. Thanks to media such organisations get exposed and customers become wary.

  184. Ravinder Khullar says

    Dear Sachin Bansal

    I had used your website for the first time on November 15,2012 for buying a Foot and Leg massager vide order No. OD21115150318. The delivery was expected within 72 hours.Despite of my umpteen calls at your customer service numbers, I have not been able to even track the shipment which is stated to have been made on November 17,2012. Every time your customer support executives are asking me to weight for a day more. Nobody is aware of the status of the shipment.

    I have seen all the above mails and wished that i would have seen these before placing the order or placed the order as Payment against delivery. I am stuck now as I have already made the full payment of Rs.12999/-.

    I request you to personally look into the matter and get the product delivered without any further delay. in case you are also not able to track the shipment and deliver, please arrange for the immediate refund of the amount already paid.

    Hi before blaming customer care please try to point out higher management people what ever those people trained they have go according to procedure.seriously personal experience with flip-kart higher management have extreme attitude.They will think about how to make people fool around.From H.R trainers assistant manager .They don’t know how to behave with employees also and flipkart mainly concern about cash on delivery not on online payment.its worst flipkart.

  186. sivakumar says

    The same thing happened to me in terms of refund to the bank/credit card. There was too many conflicting information within the customer care agents. I think their software is not showing them whether the refund was done or not.

    Here is proof on conflicting emails from the customer care personnel’s. Check this.

    First Email:
    “We are glad to confirm you once again that we have already initiated a refund of Rs.9180/- to your card/bank account on November 10, 2012. However, due to the standard banking procedures, this amount will reflect in your account by 7-10 business days.”

    This is from vinay

    Second Email:
    Thank you for writing in.

    ‘We are glad to confirm you once again that we have already initiated a refund of Rs.9180/- to your card/bank account on November 10, 2012. However, due to the standard banking procedures, this amount will reflect in your account by 7-10 business days.”

  187. Jomel Varghese says

    I placed an order for Antivirus on 9th NOV. Today is 15th NOV. Still not rcvd it. The Flipkart people called and said there is some pincode issue. they re-chkd with me the pincode. But it was right. They said it was some pincode issue. When I contacted my friends who use FLIPKART for shopping, all of them said that all of them got the same EXCUSE from flipkart when the delivery is delayed. Honestly man, If you guys cannot be honest with Customers, how can u expect us shoppin 2nd time. Frankly, Flipkart has lost its name past 1 year. Will never refer to my friend for shopping thru Flipkart.

    1. Ashish Koshy says

      Bro if you would have got the delivery on time, would you send them a letter saying "thanks"? :P

    2. Jomel Varghese says

      YES. . . I have done it for my 1st order, , , This is my 2nd one , , and this issue is not only with me.. its the same with many other customers. . .

    3. Ashish Koshy says

      Then it makes sense. Personally speaking, I've ordered close to 20-25 times now and in most cases they've delivered on time.

  188. Partho says

    It has been almost a year since this letter and things remain the same:
    I had placed an order no. OD21106152769 on 6th Nov for a book which was due to be delivered on 14th Nov, which itself is a long time. But yesterday I got a call from the delivery boy that he has got a flat tyre and he will deliver it today morning. This was in spite of my calling customer support requesting to expedite the delivery. Today even after repeated follow-up by me the delivery has not yet been made. The local guys have stopped answering my calls. And on top of that they have updated the tracking status as “customer not available” which is an absolute lie. I was at my address the entire day yesterday! This is unacceptable behaviour and service form people who claim to be the best in the industry!!!

  189. Rishi Singh says

    Same thing happened to me today. This is not a big money, just 500 bucks for a pendrive. Pendrive was broken and I returned it. When I called them for refund, they asked me to wait 2-3 days while refund is processing. I received an email that my refund is completed and will be deposited in my wallet balance by Nov 9, 2012. But no refund, I called them again and you know what they said, ”many ppl are manipulating with returns so they want me to provide them a scanned copy of return receipt”, where the person who came to pick the return told me that they do not provide return receipt for the item worth less then 1000. So I am left with no pendrive and no money. Nice work Sachin Bansal, keep robbing your customers like that and you will beat the Microsoft one day. Also the customer care guys were too polite (they did not even allow me to say single word, just kept on singing their songs)

  190. Rinu Susan Raju says

    Flipkart customer care is non existent

  191. Binoy says

    sachin n binny,

    i’m pretty sure you are not gonna look through all the stuff that people have written out here regarding your compay’s service. zillions of rupees is comin in on a day to day basis right? so why care about customers!!

    i made the mistake of ordering from your website…not gonna go through the details coz i know for sure that you guys are not bothered….rest assured, i will not be ordering from you guys anymore.

    anyway good luck coz i dont think you guys are going to be around for long…..



  192. Jagatbandhu Pattnaik says

    Now flipkart is a sinking ship. Flipkart has stopped shipping items (I wanted to place orders for a calculator, then for a mixer grinder) to smaller cities, even though reputed couriers like bluedart, dtdc, overnite express etc have services in my locality. I had purchased 20 items from flipkart in last one year, now they say “Due to some change in company policy your area is not serviced by our courier partner”. In stead of changing their courier partner they are asking me to move to another big city where they can ship the consignment !! Flipkart is going to down the shutter of their shop very soon. No more purchase from flipkart.

  193. Hazel Fernandes says

    Mr. Sachin Bansal

    The CEO


    Dear Sir,
    I would first of all like to compliment you on the wonderful concept of online store that you have offered us through Flipcart. For me, Flipcart has been the one stop solution whenever I need to buy anything online.

    However, I would like to bring to your notice that this time I faced a big problem getting the items that I had purchased for my kids for their birthday.
    I purchased 2 items viz.
    Order ID: OD20926191679
    Item: Nano Speed Triple Loop Stunt Set
    Item: Disney Princess Baking Set

    Both had the same delivery address and of these, the 2nd one was (Disney Princess Baking Set) was delivered and the former hasn’t been delivered till date. The purchase was made on 25th Sept.

    When the item was not received within a week, I enquired withelpline email, Ms. Priyanka h your representatives and the courier person and got to learn that the item had been misrouted. Moreover when I write to your tells me that I am sending the wrong item order ID. Moreover she says we will get back to you in 2 working days? Dont you think it is ridiculous??? I am a Pharma Marketeer working as a Marketing Manager in Delhi, and I know the importance of a CUSTOMER and if I would be in your place would never make the mistake replying to a customer (who is already experiencing a delay) with a STANDARD STEREOTYPED MESSAGE “WE WILL GET BACK TO YOU IN 2 WORKING DAYS” … this is really ridiculous! We are in a Customer driven market, but I am sorry to say, but your representatives are still living in a Seller’s market. I have 20 other websites today – Jabong/ Crazeal/ Tradus… you name it!

    Anyway, post this lovely email from Ms. Priyanka which only added to my stress and the anxiety of my kids (kids dont understand MISROUTED….they only know that they didn’t receive their gift on their birthday because of Flipcart), I called up the helpline on 9th Oct and some Mr. Dev, told me that he would ensure it would be delivered within 2-4 days. Post this call, I should have received the dispatch details, which I didnt.

    I want to ask you few questions –
    1. Am I not to be informed about the delay and reason?
    2. Don’t I deserve an apology from Flipcart because of delay and not being informed about the same
    3. Does Ms Priyanka think I have created the Order ID? I will only refer to the ID sent to me by Flipcart
    4. Mr Dev said that the item will be delivered. Why were dispatch details not sent to me?
    5. Do you think I will ever buy from Flipcart considering so much stress and followup needed ?
    6. What do you think should be the compensation for this Harrassment ? (I would account it as harrassment as I am a very busy marketing professional and am writing this mail during my office hours, leaving all my important work aside.. which is not ON) I am not supposed to followup on getting work done from Flipcart. I dont think I am paid for that!

    I expect a reply on each of these questions from you. I have also written to you on Twitter as I didnt have your email ID (Other CEOs e.g. Mr. Kishore Biyani/ Mr. Prataph Reddy etc. share their email IDs so that they can keep ears open to what custoemrs have to say)

    Sir, lastly I would like to tell you that I am voicing my experience to you as I had no other choice. No one from your HELPLINE seems to emphatize. In no way do I intend to hurt anyone through this mail. I would be thankful if you can atleast get the item I have purchased delivered to me in 1 piece. Thats the least expected!

    Have a Good Day!


  194. John Shergill says

    Very weird services by Flipkart, this was laptop which is a big thing, they took a month to process a Pendrive and ultimately they could not deliver it. thank God i purchased it locally on time.
    Every tom dick n harry these days open a company and ensures a world class service, but then their inability to manage things or team comes out.

    i would never suggest flipkart to anybody.

  195. Vivek Singh says

    Ref My Order placed with your company Order ID: OD20917111879 Tracking Id: MP00786262 for a smasmsung camera on the 19th…the tracking details show that it reached ghaziabad facility on the 22nd of September.. till now the parcel has not been delivered and your customer execs apologize for this and say they can only deliver it by 3rd of October 2012 and I will be out of town from 1st to the 5th October.This has been a very very bad experience with flipkart…i really feel disappointed..yours was the only online store which put my faith in online shopping. I was extreme disappointment I have had to cancle the order for a refun as they couldn't deliver the package by today 29th Sep 2012..i was assured by one of your exces on 26th Sep 2012to expedite my order on priority and try and have it delivered by 28th Sep 2012 but that was not supposed to be.

    Otherwise no complaints at all..great products good prices..this was just a terrible terrible let down.

  196. Prize Thankachan says

  197. D Sengupta says

    Mr Sachin Bansal
    Promoter Flipkart.com,

    1. Dear Mr Bansal, I have a serious complaint against Flipkart; which is yet to be redressed by your CS team even after my making dozens of calls to your CS supervisors and lapse of more than two weeks. On 26 Aug 12, I booked the following consignment and paid online using my SBI credit card:

    Order Id : OD20826100180; Rs 18,099/-
    Item: Sony Xperia Neo L (White)

    2. The consignment was to be delivered to my son Rahul Sengupta within 7-8 working days i.e. by 01-02 Sep 12. I was tracking the consignment on overnite express website. It was mentioned that the item has been shipped from Bangalore on 27th Aug 12 to Kolkata. I was in touch with overnite express in Kolkata and till 31st they meintained that the item was never handed over to them by the Flipkart shipping team.

    3. On 31 August 12, I lodged a complaint vide complaint No. 120831-009857 for non delivery of above mentioned order. I was promised repeatedly by your team leaders Mr Tibin, Mr Swapnil and Mr Sandeep that the item will be delivered within 2 more days i.e. by 3rd Sep 2012. The item did’nt reach.

    4. On 3rd Sep 12, I cancelled the order and got a confirmation mail that the order has been cancelled and the money will be returned to my account within 7-8 days and in any case latest by 14th Sep 12. Today is 2300 h on 8th Sep 12 and the money is not yet returned back to my account.

    5. I had made up my mind to approach Min of Consumer Affairs with my complaint but my previous good experience with Flipkart prevented me from doing so.

    6. Please direct your team to take necessary steps and return the amount to my credit card account as per promise i.e. latest by 14th Sep 12.

    7. I wanted your personal mail id but Mr Rajeev, one of your TL, gave me this CS id and promised that this mail will reach you. I sincerely hope it does.

    Warm Regards,

    D Sengupta

    Dear Sachin
    I wanted to upgrade the RAM of my Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop.
    I had gone through Flipkart website and found Transcend 2 GB RAM (JM800QLU-2G) and immediately placed an order for purchase of the same vide OD20829190293 convinced that this will meet my need. The consignment with tracking number BC01730653 was delivered to at 11.50 a.m. on 31.12.2012. On unpacking flipkart upper packing and from a peep into the transparent Transcend packing, I realized that the RAM would not fit in my laptop and was meant for PC.
    Frankly speaking, that moment, I was not even aware that the RAM meant for laptop is different from the one used in a PC.
    Immediately, without even touching the Transcend original pack, within 10 mts. of taking delivery, I had contacted the Flipkart stating the inadvertent mistake and requested for replacement with a RAM compatible with my laptop. They refused to my request stating that they have no Policy of replacement/exchange. My repeated requests did not move them. The original packing of Transcend was not even touched by me.
    I am not a technical man. I genuinely require a laptop RAM, but the RAM received would not fit into my laptap.
    I had just asked for the right RAM for use in my laptap. I am not asking for any refund.
    The policies made by Flipkart are meant for smooth functioning of the entire system.
    I do not think that a policy should not come in the way of solving a genuine hardship caused to a customer and protect the interest of a genuine customer.

    Flipkart can always rise to the occasion and make an exception in the case of a genuine hardship to a customer and one would appreciate such a policy.
    It will go a long way in creating a lot of Goodwill for Flipkart.
    It is not as if one has to go to a Constitutional amendment requiring assent of President of India.
    Hopes Flipkart would move now. Flipkart can raise a bill for any additional cost, if involved.
    Best Wishes
    V. Vijay Kumar, IRS (Retd.)

  201. Avinash Pratap Singh says

    Hi all,
    I am the next into the list.I ordered Airtubz headset from flipkart with excitement because this one is very special headset which reduces mobile phone radiation upto 90%.I was very cautious while ordering it because it is simple to ask questions like whether it will work with my mobile set or not and confirmed it number of times before ordering it.
    Now when it was delivered the pleasant journey ended with that date.Called them number of times response was quick and they told me to sent the snap of y cellphone .I sent it number of time time they did not receive it I tried another id as well but was in vain .They simply refused that they can not help me further in this case .
    And funny part is that now my cellphone set comes under incompatible list with that particular head set.

  202. raul fan says

    I too faced a similar issue from flipkart. They sent me a poor quality item, then refused to replace it.

  203. Deepak Kumar says

    Pathetic service and customer support does not even know how to behave. I'm afraid, why do people order things from Flipkart. Everyone should boycott ordering products from such bullshit shopping websites. If anyone in Flipcart looking over customer grievance, can contact me at 851-207-4554.

  204. Rahul Vaidya says




    I wouldn’t beat them but they have frustrated me enough to think of punching them in the face!

  205. Kiran says

    flipkart.com has got one of the worst services that I have never experienced on any online portals. After paying for MP3 songs download, they give an option of downloading the songs, but the link doesn’t work. It throws out an Error called 500: Internal Server error. If informed to the customer care, they simply say that “REFUND IS THE ONLY OPTION” and the support team is not providing any solution on this problem.

  206. Shankar Venugopal says

    Flipkart service is real bad now – I have been using it for last 4 years and had recommended it to many of my friends – but today I felt cheated – I had placed order for some books – they cancelled the order without informing me. Their website shows that the book is available and can be supplied in 3-4 days – but when I called them, Ms P said that the book is out of stock. She further said that the same book is available at a higher price (imported edition). I am particular about the book and I am ready to pay a higher price – but they never advised me on the alternatives and cancelled my order on their own.

  207. Pranav Kumar says

    Dear Team,

    Kindly check, you people committed the delivery till 3 working days from the order date. Now you people state for 5 – 6 working days. It’s really disgusting as compare to other e-commerce company. Trust my words, I want’ do further transaction with flip kart.

    Hello Mr. Bansal,
    Hope sitting at a very high position u r not even bothered to read all these comments. Why the hell are flipkart people playing around with Common man’s money??When it comes to refund, u guys never bother to process and ur people at Customer care speak of RBI guidelines……!!!!!What the hell do you think you are doing…First, train your customer care people about how to handle things as well as how to speak to customers…..because I have got to hear 4 different versions of dialogues from your customer care people in a single day….How many days does it take for you to refund amount after the consignment has been reverse picked up??as per your guidelines 20..!!! Since April 18th I hope Flipkart people were sleeping hearing to lullabies from Sachin aswell as His bro….

    To hell with you people..I have got all the recordings of all the four versions of my conversation with your HIGH END Customer care people. Face me in the court and I mean it….because till date my cheque has not reached me….

    I was a big fan and regular customer of Flipkart.com. Recently I bought a phone from Flipkart. The sealed package arrived after two days. I opened the package, there was NO PHONE inside. Just visualize the situation – a sealed box, all the phone accessories are inside, except the phone.I have reported the issue immediately. Now whenever I call I get reply from Flipkart that they are investigating the issue. Now what happens to my phone, nobody from Flipkart has any idea. I am really frustrated with Flipkart post sales service and delivery commitment. #Flipkart #BadService

    I was informed by your courier partner BlueDart that my order through Flipkar.com cannot be processed unless the form16 is submitted. And they advised me to contact your customer support. Since then (9/05/2012), I have been keeping in touch with your customer support executives. And I was assured by your customer support executives that I will be able to collect my ordered product within 2 to 3 business days. So I waited till Saturday (12/05/2012).

    But I got a mail mentioning that there will be another delay of 2 to 3 days in delivery. And today (15/05/2012), I contacted the BlueDart and unfortunately they were telling that the issue of Form 16 was not resolved by Flipkart. I again contacted your customer support executive and I didn’t get any clear picture about the delivery. They were simply bluffing that the issue of Form16 has been resolved from their side and I will be able to collect my ordered product within the next 2 to 3 business days.
    Later I got a call from customer support telling that I will be able to receive the goods withing 2 to 3 business days. Then I mentioned the problem of Form16. And now I got a mail to submit the form16 inorder to get my product delivered.

    I have gone through the document that which you had sent. It is a taxation rule for Kerala State amended in the year 2005. But I remember your customer support executives saying that this Form16 rule was newly introduced by Kerala State Govt and the Govt keep on changing these rules and that is why they were unaware about these issues.

    There is already a delay of six days. And you are asking me to fill up the form16 only after 12 days the order was given? This really indicates your bad responsibility.

    You have never mentioned in your web site about the submission of Form16 in any occasions. Customer purchases goods online, since they don’t want to go to shops. But now you are telling me to submit the Form 16 to your outlet somewhere in Trivandrum. It is my responsibility to clear the Form 16 issue. Your have been in this field for some period and don’t you even know the basic rule to deliver a product? Or else you should have mentioned this issuing of Form16 to your outlet. Your are keeping on changing your assurances. This comes under betrayal. It is my responsibility to submit form16 at your outlet and I don’t have time to submit that. I don’t have any idea about some of the fields mentioned in the form that which you have sent me. You have to clear it from your side.

    Dear Mr. Bansal,
    I am an author and a publisher. Had supplied nine books for sale and return to your organisation in July last year. My contact man was Varun Aggarwal who was very nice and signed a SOR Contract that assured me of quarterly reports followed by monthly reports. Nothing happened till two/three reminders. Finally in December i was informed that three copies of “Leadership FM Sam Manekshaw had been sold. I was in regular touch to get my money that was promised in a day or so. That day is yet to arrive and I have now decided to give up as a foul debt. This is for your information. My co. is SDS Publishers, 1709, sector-29, NOIDA.

  214. Subrato Mitra says

    My experience with filpkart was more or less satisfactory, but the latest experience is quite bad. Their customer Service is in shambles and they openly say that they can’t help you. My consignment was due on 13th, but it was not delivered till this day and representative are not ready to give a definite date of delivery. As I have to go out of the town, I had to cancel the order.

  215. TinTin says

    If you make your “reputation”, and “business stuff”, and “promises” dependent on a laptop delivery and replacement, you are not a true entreprenuer. You are just a crybaby!!

  216. Rajib says

    I am facing a similar issue with Flipkart. I bought Samsung Galaxy R from Flipkart, as it is a faulty product I requested them to exchange it but they are so reluctant to do so. Every time I speak to CS they tell different things. Finally, they accepted that it is a faulty one and agreed to replace the product but since last three days whenever I ask them whether did they arrange for a reverse pickup they say we will raise it today and it will take another 72 hours.. What the hell.. 72 hours is constant..

  217. Baby Deals Online says

    Retailing in tough in India.

  218. Mukund Rathi says

    Arey Ek to wo banda aapka laptop wapis lene aaya and aap ghar par nahi they. Aur is se jyada bechara kya karega? U are not the only customer right? Jo hua wo jane do abhi. let bygones be bygones. Nahi lena hei to mat lo flipcart se… I don't know why people don't step outside their house and go to the open market where they can really get a better deal and real people for any thing… specially Laptops. Its not USA where u get things cheaper online then in Store. Its India and reverse is true.

  219. Mukesh says

    I have bought books from flipkart.com and have always been happy & satisfied with their service. Never had a chance to replace or seek refund. However, as someone who wishes to see all entrepreneurs succeed, I wish that Sachin does respond to this letter.

    If I were in his shoes, what would I do? I have tried to jot down a letter that I would write to Sushrut. Hope Sachin does a much better job than my attempt.

    1. Arun Prabhudesai says


      I dont mind featuring that letter on trak.in, if it would be of interest to wider audience… Let me know if you think so..

      1. Mukesh says

        I think it would be of interest. If you want to feature it there, pls feel free to do so. The letter is already up on my blog @ http://rmukeshgupta.wordpress.com/2012/01/26/how-can-flipkart-respond-to-the-open-letter-to-its-founder-by-a-dissatisfied-customer/.

        Do let me know if you post the letter.

        1. Partha says

          An excellent, well drafted and carefully worded letter has been prepared by Mukesh. Hope Sachin takes this opportunity to enhance the image of FlipKart. The offer to send one book every month may turn out to be a bit expensive if Sushrut decides to pick costly books but even then the overall price for enhanced branding is quite negligible. The other option could be to organize a best customer feedback kind of award and organize periodic get together to give out the awards and get further branding in the process.

  220. Raghu Palghat says

    sad to hear this, poor cust service. Thankfully have used flipkart only once so far to order a book for a cousin.

  221. Anil Nebhani says

    bussy I used filpkart but only ordered books no I got from you to never go up on this side thanks 2 u for sharing this information with us.

  222. Mahesh Ranka says

    Thank god I haven't used flipkart till date… and now never will.
    I also found that Flipkart deals are not the best… even if they claim.

    They have good advertising though!

    1. Preeti Sunil says

      purchased with reasonable good deals for over 2 years now with nearly impeccable service(amazing turnaround, good packaging of fragile goods) but….off late customer service definitely sucks.

  223. Sandeep Chandy says

    Had a big problem on Refund with Flipkart.

  224. Rajesh Jaisingh says

    This is either the first sign of cracks in the processes or an aberration. If its the former, either the team is unable to handle the growth in volumes or the system of handling returns and refunds was never properly in place to start with.

    Is FlipKart listening or has the hubris set in?

  225. Raza says

    This kind of situation is not only happening online. Even in offline this is happening. Indian e-tailers and retailers should learn what is customer satisfaction. Its my opinion that everyone should not be allowed to do such kind of business. There should be some special studies to start such business. Only those who are completing the course properly should be allowed to start business. Just investments and promotions can not become innovations.

    1. notric says

      Dear Mr. Raza. I agree that Indian people should learn what is customer satisfaction. But tell you what, being a part of the Market, I know what I get from every thing I sell. Due to cut throat competitions, the margins are very very low. And to provide customer satisfaction in that amount, is almost impossible. Secondly in things like Laptops, electronic goods etc, in India, it is not the job of the retailer to provide after sales services. It is actually the job of the Company. So if you buy a Sony Laptop from a Retailer, the Retailer is not someone who you should ask for any kind of customer satisfaction. It is the job of Sony Service Center.

  226. Shebeeb says

    Now-a-days i am facing problems in payment gateway. Out of 10 transactions 2 will be payment failure especially when they debit my account with http://www.flipkart.com instead of WS Retail. I think that’s why they came up with wallet.

  227. Ravi says

    That’s sad to know. I had similar issue with myntra. They promise for a replacement of small size of shoe they sent. But they never replaced and their customer support is not co-operating at all. They even stopped replying my e-mail.

    1. Shebeeb says

      Call their toll free number

  228. Sameer says

    I am surprised that you guys expect “professionalism” from any Indian company or it’s representatives. Why are your shocked and upset? I am of an extremely negative opinion about any Indian customer support. I don’t remember ANY communication of this kind end on a note that could make me happy. I may sound cynical here, but I am sure we WILL NEVER HAVE GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE, at least in our life times! It’s inherently in our genes to be unaccountable, irresponsible, “i don’t care” kind of attitude. We are suffering here only because of one reason: and that is “no enforcement”. When the law makers and law keepers are corrupt, how do you expect anything to change! Remember, we live in a country where self-confessed thugs like Ramalinga Raju is living a luxurious life on bail! People celebrated Kalmadi’s bail – and awarded a grand home-coming for the biggest crook of our times! Is there hope? Seriously??

    1. Raj says

      200% agree with you, Sameer….. we have 5000 years of currupted genes/dna… it will take another 1000 years to correct ourself…. I wonder who was the fool who said in 1998 that India would be super power by 2008.

  229. Sachin Patil says

    very sad……..

  230. Asho says

    This is not just with flipkart, every private companies do the same when come with refund or replacement… Just go to consumer court… this is the best choice… i did this before with a computer store here in my area… after i send them notice, they came to my home and replaced the DVD writer…

    who the hell are they to use the bad words while the mistake is with them… if i was in your situation, i will beat that guy the death and take him to police (BTW my brother is IPS)… my brother say me it is totally write to beat a wrong guys…

  231. Abhishek Nagar says

    its just not flipcart, similar sort of things keep happening with almost all indian e commerce sites i have witnessed the same with naaptol & indiaplaza as well.

  232. Naved Siddiqui says

    Very Shameful to you Mr. Bansal
