    Snapdeal still need to mature in terms of service qualities.
    Even after GOSF, sites are filled with consumer complaints that the
    orders with GOSF pricing are getting cancelled even when the same
    products are available for fresh purchase at double the rate means stock
    are still available to cater new orders. News websites are also showing just how successful the ecommerce have been in attracting customers but the bitter part of it is that it was partially cheating on these websites where they allowed customers to place orders and now due to financial reasons, they cannot honour it, so cancel those orders even if the product is available for fresh purchase at double the GOSF prices. obviously, they can’t ask Ratan Tata for money everytime :) so normal public have to contribute to the financial success of these companies.
