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.

        • Rizwan Yaqoob

    • umer

      Easypay se pay kerne ke kitne extra charges hote hain?

      • MatK

        Extra charges nahi hotay koi bhi.

        • umer

          Ok thanks

    • Faheem Janjua

      I wish once you will gte your General Mobile post about it here how it works for you and how you can compare it with Samsung phones.

      • Matk

        Considering you are spending 13000 and there isn’t any good 4G Samsung phone in that price, I would say it is a good bet. I liked the phone and its performance plus regular updates from Google.

        • Faheem Janjua

          Good

        • How is the battery timing and performance game wise.

    • Sumeet Kumar

      It took around 8 days for them, to confirm and deliver my order of Inifinix Zero 3 and General Mobile 4G.

  • Asif

    5000 phones in first hour? I doubt it.

  • Rizwan Yaqoob

    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.

    • Rizwan Yaqoob

  • Ishtiaq

    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.

    • Asif Khan PTI

      Lol very Nice Point

    • Taha Najam

      Lol, well said.

  • Salman

    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.

  • AbdulB1

    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.

    • Faheem Janjua

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

  • Kashif Khan

    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

    • Faheem Janjua

      For Daraz this is normal thing, they have no control over stock issues.

  • kashifmahmood

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

    • kashifmahmood

      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.

  • halakoo

  • Jaffar

    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.
