- Flipkart plans to disable all orders and later start enabling categories in a sequential manner
- The company will also consult the govt on the ways to get back the supply chain
- Amazon too has decided to cancel all low priority orders due to logistics and fulfillment limits
With India going into a complete lockdown for the next 21 days, ecommerce giant Flipkart decided to temporarily suspend all operations and services for the time being.
The company made the announcement on its official website. It said, “These are difficult times, times like no other. Never before, have communities stayed apart to stay safe! Never before, has been at home meant helping the nations!”
Flipkart’s decision to suspend all services was an outcome of the complete lockdown announcement made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last night (March 24) at 8 PM. Even though, ecommerce companies like Flipkart, Amazon, BigBasket, Grofers, and others were allowed to operate to provide essential goods and services.
