Daraz Sold 5,000 Phones in One Hour During Mobile Week Sale

Daraz.pk’s Mobile Week has broken all phone sale records as the ecommerce firm claims to have sold over 5,000 phones with-in first hour of sale going up on June 20th, 2016, said a statement issued by the company.

Daraz said that it received over 2 million visits on the website during the week and sold 21 times more phone in one day compared to a regular shopping day.

The shopping frenzy started at 12 am on June 20 and there was an influx of thousands of people out in the battle field to avail the best phone deal; with the Samsung S7 deal completely sold out during first 60 minutes.

“At midnight, as we celebrated leading to the countdown, we knew that this would be a sale as big as Black Friday and we were very excited to bring another revolutionary sale event to our customers. The hype for Mobile Week had been building much before the sale began, and once the deals were revealed the vibe went from electric to ecstatic,” said Saman Javed, Head of Communications Daraz.pk.

Daraz said that shoppers enjoyed deals on all phone brands, availing Rs 14.3 million worth of discounts from the company.

Daraz said that sold a large number of Samsung S7 handsets, which was available at a price Rs 20,000 lower than market price, Infinix and QMobile phones flew off the virtual shelf and the latest phone launch, General Mobile 4G dual, was a massive hit.

Daraz’s collaboration with EasyPay during Black Friday had established EasyPay as the staple method of prepayment for online shopping. The payment solution was a big hit again – 55 times more people opted for Easypay debit/credit card option, compared to a regular day this was a clear demonstration of more reliance and trust in online shopping.

Daraz.pk promised to be back again next year with an even bigger Mobile Week.

Below is an infographic that Daraz shared with on the Mobile Week Sale:

Mobile-Week---Infographic


  • I too ordered the General Mobile on Friday and still waiting for it to be delivered. I paid through EasyPay but still :|

  • Placed an order (Galaxy S7 with VR) at night and got it on the very next day. Happy to see phone came with accidental coverage warranty and Zong data card. Both VR and phone were well packed and original factory seals were intact.

  • Agar itna hi bara hit tha tou abhi tak kyuin kheenchay jarahe hain mobile week ko? Second week hogaya ab aur sbhi bhi yeh aas lagaye bethey huwey hain k koi bhoola bhatka customer ajaye.

  • I had ordered Infinix phone 6 days ago, (although delivery time written is 8-12 days)

    but today i got a message that delivery is delayed 10 days due to their internal issue.

    Why daraz people get soo many orders if they cannot coomplete them on time.

  • I think if they are so eager to get money first instead of following cash on delivery model then they should also give discounts on other days as well.

    • I am sure in Pakistan no online store is reliable and Daraz too is not much trustworthy.

  • Yeah yeah . Tell whole story man . After confirming the order and keeping me wait for 8 days for delivery they just cancelled my order saying WE ARE OUT OF STOCK . Why are you taking orders at first place if you doesn’t have enough stock

  • I also paid (EasyPay) for a Lenovo handset this Sunday and hoping to get it delivered today.

    • In fact just got the parcel delivered 2 hours ago by Leopards courier. All looks good. Placed order on Sat night, paid on Sunday and got it on Wednesday.

  • order lumia535 thru easy pay on monday, done payment on monday night around 10 pm at easypaisa shop after seraching for an hour to found a shop which has balance to except my payment. got my phone next day at 10 am. quite impress with their super quick service.

  • Bought three mobiles from daraz.pk
    And all they payment were made from easypaisa

    Waiting for infinix note 2 to deliver. Today they have dispatched it.

  • Pathetic Service; its now 1 week passed and still no sign of delivery. I will never ever order any items from these rubbish online stores

  • Too bad service offered by daraz.pk.
    I had order samsung galaxy s7 approx. 8 days ago and i am calling on their help line .Everyday they are telling me that the order is ready to dispatched but still not dispatched from their side. Now they are saying they will send it after EID.
    I am very much disappointed from their service.
    Even help line call total cost me about 70 Rs.
