If you are a regular online shopper, then you most likely have had one or two bad experiences. It is quite common for online shoppers to get a product that does not match the description of the online version. However, some shoppers’ experiences are more terrible than others. The case with an Indian online shopper is very pathetic. According to the report, the user purchased an Apple iPhone 12 on Flipkart. However, when the shipment eventually arrived, the user found two bars of soap in the box.
Flipkart in India recently held a promotional event, and the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini had very strong discounts. The iPhone 12 mini sold for as low as 34,999 Indian rupees ($465). With such a huge discount, Flipkart sold more than 200,000 iPhone 12 series. The user spent 51999 Indian rupees ($691) on the iPhone 12 and found two bars of soap in the box. Fortunately, the entire process of unveiling the device was recorded by the user. After communicating with Flipkart customer service, the user received a refund a few days later.
Online shoppers are advised to always have a video recording of the unboxing of any device they purchase online. This is more important when the device is at a huge discount. The recording may prove to be very useful in event of any mishap
The iPhone 12 is Apple’s 2020 flagship smartphone. Since the release of the iPhone 13 series, there is this urgency to sell off the old iPhone 12 series. To make this device attractive, there have been multiple price cuts and discounts from both Apple and major e-commerce stores. The company has sold a lot of units as a result of these discounts.
