Myntra v/s Jabong
Jabong being a newbie is aggressive in
providing various coupons to their users.
Myntra is less aggressive in terms of
offering discount coupons to users.
Jabong does Open delivery, which
basically means is that you can check the
item before you pay. If you don't like it,
you can return the same right then and
Myntra does not allow you to open the
packet unless and until you pay the
amount. If you don't like the product the
returning is a long process for Myntra.
Is there a winner ?
• Myntra is like an online shoppers stop, you know exactly what
brand what item to find where. So Myntra basically is a more
appropriate site for fashion oriented people.
• Jabong is like an onlineWalmart, you know everything is in
there but you just cannot find what you need because, there
is just too much. Jabong is preferred by people looking for
more discounts and unlimited varieties.
• Myntra’s new leap forward is a smart move to increase sales
and brand awareness.
• However, Jabong’s huge collection, aggressive discounts and
marketing endeavours are no less.
