Flipkart experiences downtime

Flipkart, major ecommerce site in India, is currently in the middle of “Big Billion Days” sale. It is competing with Snapdeal and Amazon India for dominance in the Indian e-commerce market. During a similar sale last year the website experienced major issues for which the co-founders came out and offered their apologies.

This year, Flipkart is offering deals only on the app and not on the website. That doesn’t seem to have helped. Customers have been experiencing issues opening the app and even while it opens, more often than not it is error-ing out.

While there are no sales on the website, our monitoring shows that not all is well with its website either. On 15th October, between 4:10 am and 4:30 am (IST), the website experienced severe downtime issues.
