Just like every year, Flipkart’s Big Billion Days sale is currently ongoing during the festive
season. The starting price for the Apple iPhone 13 during the sale was among the lowest we’ve ever seen. It was being sold at less than Rs 50,000 for the model from the previous year. But not many customers could benefit from it. While many customers were able to receive the iPhone 13 for less than Rs 50,000, a few unlucky customers also reported that their orders were cancelled.
Several customers who bought the Apple iPhone 13 on Flipkart for less than Rs 50,000 during the sale have complained that the seller cancelled their orders a few days after they were placed. Many people also took to Twitter to complain about Flipkart, calling it a scam. They said that the eCommerce giant was taking too long to process their refund because the sale would end on September 30, and the iPhone 13 price would only increase by then. Below are some complaints filed by Twitteratis.

Flipkart notified customers that if their order was cancelled during the Big Billion Days sale, they would be informed of the outcome. Many customers are assuming that the order was cancelled because the sellers could not satisfy the high demand.
However, Flipkart revealed to India Today that more than 70% of iPhone sales had been successfully delivered to customers and that very few orders had been cancelled by sellers because of errors. Flipkart, in a statement, told India Today, “Flipkart is a customer-first ecommerce marketplace and always ensures that customers’ interests are protected. We understand that close to 70 per cent of all iPhone orders placed across cities including Guntur, Gorakhpur, and Siliguri have been successfully delivered by the sellers.”
During the first few days of the Flipkart Big Billion Days sale, the Apple iPhone 13 was offered for the lowest price we have ever seen. It was being sold at just Rs 47,990. While some buyers who placed their orders in the first couple of hours of the sale had no issues, buyers who placed their orders a little later had their orders cancelled by the seller.
The iPhone 13 is now offered as part of the Big Billion Days deal on Flipkart for a price of Rs 58,990. Additionally, customers on Flipkart can use promos provided by the bank to further lower the price.

If you didn’t have a chance to purchase an iPhone 13 on Flipkart, you can still do so on Croma. Retail store Croma has announced its Diwali sale, during which the smartphone would be available for just 51,990 rupees. According to Croma’s teaser page for the Diwali sale, the iPhone 13 will cost 51,990 rupees. The device has an official cost of Rs 69,900. This indicates that the platform is giving the iPhone 13 at a discount of Rs 17,910.
Croma hasn’t said how long the deal will continue but remember that the price reduction will probably depend on bank cards, prepaid orders, and there will also be a flat discount, similar to what Flipkart offered.
