Great Online Shopping Festival (GOSF) a Huge Success This Year: Google

Internet giant Google on Thursday said that response to the ongoing Great Online Shopping Festival has exceeded its "wildest expectations", with Tata Group's realty arm having bagged 10,000 bookings in a single day.

"The GOSF has exceeded the wildest of our expectations with the response that we have had to GOSF," Google India Managing Director Rajan Anandan said.

Anandan said that in spite of high traffic, the user experience is seamless and the sites are not going down.

"This is unlike the experience last year, when there were issues with connectivity," he said.

He said realty firm Tata Housing alone has witnessed 10,000 bookings of flats within the first day of the GOSF, for which Google has tied-up with 450 merchants who are offering special discounts on merchandise.

The sale, which is on till December 12, has seen sales of small and medium online retailers surge by up to ten times, while the same for established retailers like Flipkart and Amazon are up by up to 100 per cent, Anandan said.

The busiest section is a special deal corner offering items at Rs. 299, while the busiest time for the shopping is between 6pm and 12am, and during lunch breaks between 12pm and 2pm, he said.
