I had been eyeing this product since late March this year. The price when I first saw this product was around Rs. 2500. I had then put it on my wishlist and used to check its price now and then. A few weeks ago, I noticed that the price had suddenly rocketed to about Rs. 2700 or 2800. Right now (Dated June 5, 2015), the price is Rs. 2, 595. And all these fluctuations made by the same seller.

There is a lot of difference in the price even if its just a few hundreds of rupees. This is like comparing stocks' values in the stock market before selling/buying them! What is going on, Flipkart?

Flipkart seller notifications

At the first e-commerce class this semester at university, a classmate who works for a start-up cited the following example. He is working with Flipkart seller.

What he said:
"Flipkart plans its sales a month or so ahead. They contact all the sellers and ask them how much they want to sell it later during the sale and that they should change their prices now to a higher one so they can lower it later during the sale. They contacted the start-up company I'm now working for so that's how I know of this. This way, customers who're following the products won't notice anything unknown in the price difference."
