Snapdeal leaves shoppers high and dry on sales day

NEW DELHI: Snapdeal, one of the country's largest online retailers, did a Flipkart on Tuesday, failing to deliver on its promises of big discounts and speedy deliveries on its Savings Day sale. The mess-up evoked the ire of hundreds of online shoppers, who took to social media to accuse the e-tailer of cheating them in the name of a 'big sale'. 

"After spending crores to advertise for today's sale, Snapdeal payment checkout page is not working," tweeted Rohit Bhardwaj. 

With bitter memories of cancelled orders, out-of-stock products and website crashes on Flipkart's Big Billion Day sale, online shoppers were hoping that its rivals would have worked out a seamless strategy to handle surges in demand.
