Google India is introducing Cyber Monday concept, titled ‘Great Online Shopping Festival’ in which top online eCommerce portals from India will be offering discounts on their merchandise on Monday, December 12.
According to Google India, Cyber Monday is an attempt to boost online shopping adoption in India with a special focus to reach out to first-time online buyers.
The festival will offer discounts on jewellery, shoes, apparel, travel packages, books, kids wear, gadgets, watches, computer accessories, health and fitness equipment, home decor products, great deals on real estate and many more, the press release said.
Google has partnered with more than 50 retailers — including Flipkart, Snapdeal and 99 labels — for the ‘Great Online Shopping Festival’.
Google is promising to make ‘dreams come true’. While we’re sure that Indian Internet users feel left out of shopping deals in the US and China, the event is likely to help accelerate the country’s online retail industry, which is good for Web companies too.
