据美国石英网12月27日报道,亚洲第三大经济体印度的电子商务零售商正努力弥补企业亏损。 据报道,在投资者投入百万资金后期待回报之际,Flipkart、亚马逊等电商企业采取积极投放广告和打折促销的方式来吸引消费者。但截止2016年3月31日的年度财务报告显示,许多在线零售商虽然收入大幅增长,但是亏损也在增加。 “我对这些亏损不是太担忧,”研究咨询公司“Greyhound Research”首席分析师兼首席执行官Sanchit Vir Gogia说,“我真正担心的是这些公司的产品质量以及管理。比如说,如果他们的产品销售额增加了,那么生产成本也会增加,从而导致亏损,这种情况是让我非常担心的。” [Source1] | [Source2] | [Source3] | [Source4] | [Source5] | [Source6] | [Source7] | [Source8] | [Source9] | [Source10] | [Source11] | [Source12] | [Source13]

往年的节日大促中,印度电商狂打“价格战”,商品价格甚至低至1卢布。今年,资本寒冬和政策变动让印度电商的日子不太好过,玩好十月开始的大促季显得困难重重。作者 | 路遥印度的销售旺季一般从10月拉开帷幕,到排灯节(每年10月或11月中)左右达到最高峰。往年,印度电商都会用巨额折扣吸引消费者,但今年三月印度出台的电商新政禁止电商打折促销,扰乱市场价格。 咨询公司Greyhound Research的首席研究员 Sanchit Vir Gogia表示:“今年各大电商都在改进技术,备战节日促销。希望他们今年别再犯同一个错误了。” 今年,Flipkart和Snapdeal的官网大促从10月2日开始到10月6日结束,拉长的促销日或许能让他们控制好网站流量。 重重束缚在身,今年印度电商该如何在节日促销旺季突出重围?Quartz建议,印度电商不妨尝试将高利润和低利润的商品混搭销售。Gogia认为:“消费者可能会见到不少品牌类混搭。电商平台会将服务绑定产品,以确保获得利润。” Source: |
