Flipkart said, the biggest attraction for shoppers has been the Brand Stock Exchange, where over 20 brands such as Benetton, Puma, Fila, Fossil, Vero Moda, American Tourister, etc have participated.

“Basis demand, discounts surged and prices were slashed every hour. As demand for a brand increased, discounts reduced. The construct proved to be very engaging for customers, and categories like kids, clothing & footwear spiked the maximum. Multiple editions of the Stock Exchange are expected to come again during the sale. Almost 25% of all customers who visited Flipkart for the day interacted with the Stock Exchange, thereby leading to 2X surge in sales volumes,” Vasudev added further.
