JABONG Rest in Peace

Jabong which was one of the prominent shopping websites for fashion lovers is no more. There is no official communication from Flipkart but while visiting the Jabong.com they are sending customers to Myntra.

None of the links in any category is working and every page has one single message: ” Rush to Myntra to place your orders”

For those who were regularly following Jabong can relate that after the acquisition from Flipkart Jabong has started offering very fewer options in each category.

It used to be favourite of fashion lovers as it has exclusive brands and the most important was that they were genuine. Jabong used to have excellent customer care where customer satisfaction was important.

After the acquisition, Jabong has died a natural death. From all those good, bad and ugly news about Jabong, it has still remained to win the heart of the online shoppers.

But you will always be loved because you were the one who had made brands accessible online. A truly Made in India brand with whom we will love to associate ourselves.

Not happy with Fit, get your clothes altered by Myntra

In a recent announcement by Myntra it has partnered with tailors for providing alteration service. This will help the local tailors to earn an additional income and grow their business. The feature will be is available ahead of  Myntra’s End of Reason of Sale in December to make online shopping more convenient for its customers and attracting a cohort of offline-only customers to try online shopping.

in the word of Myntra “We may provide you alternation services (limited to alteration of length, alteration of the waist size) for the garments purchased by You from Us. This service shall be free of cost and no amount would be collected from You for such alteration. However, a nominal fee as mentioned by Myntra at the time of creating the alteration request (inclusive of service tax) would be applicable as convenience charge towards pick up and drop of the garments or towards tailor visit (wherever applicable).”

Myntra has so far tied up with 200 tailors, located in zones that have a large number of Myntra customers in these cities. Customers will be able to opt for an alteration service once the product is delivered. The tailors will pick up the product from the customer’s residence after taking necessary measurements and deliver them to the customer, within 24 hours to 48 hours. The alteration service is being offered at no extra cost to customers.

“As quoted by Myntra “Launching alteration services on Myntra replicates a key offline phenomenon that further bridges the gap between online and offline shopping experiences for customers. It is aimed at making online shopping more convenient while reducing returns due to size and fit issues,” said Amar Nagaram, Head – Myntra Jabong.

As an organization, we are committed to strengthening the small and medium businesses within our ecosystem and this service provides us an opportunity to work with tailors across the country and provide them an opportunity to augment their income while also enhancing their business and customer interaction skills through training. We have introduced this service in 4 cities ahead of our End of Reason Sale and will extend this to 80% of our customer base over the next one year,” Nagaram said further.

So fingers crossed for this new service being offered by Myntra and let’s see how it comes out to help their online business and to the customer who complain of irregular fit and have to return the clothes.

How to keep your Facebook account safe in 2019 Election

Facebook has issued safety instruction ahead of 2019 Election, to its users, after they were affected by a massive security breach which has impacted almost 50 million Facebook users across the globe.

In the breach a third-party company erroneously accessed data that a then-legitimate quiz app had siphoned up, this vulnerability allowed attackers to directly take over user accounts.

Below is the mail to the Facebook users on how to secure their Facebook account in the much awaited Election of 2019.

Hello,

Safety and security are very important to Facebook, which is why we’re approaching political parties during this time with some tips about how to secure your account.

Engagement from a wide range of voices on Facebook enriches our community and facilitates conversations, including conversations about politics. At times, a few sophisticated bad actors will at times seek to target high-profile political figures and those connected to them to undermine democratic discourse online. 


HOW TO SECURE YOUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT:

WHAT TO WATCH OUT FOR: 
We believe that it’s worth being familiar with the small handful of standard approaches generally used by those targeting elected officials, candidates and those associated with them. You can help protect your Facebook account by ensuring that your email account, website and third-party apps are kept safe. Below are five commonly used strategies and information about how to minimise your risk.

1. Spear phishing 

In spear phishing, bad actors send highly customised emails to specifically targeted individuals. These emails are intended to look like legitimate correspondence but often contain malicious links or documents. In a recent spear phishing campaign, emails or messages indicate that a password reset is required for your email account. The email contains a shortened link that directs to a fake email login page. If you enter your information on this page, the attacker is able to acquire the information and access your account.

It’s important to understand that your personal email, social media and other accounts are just as attractive as the accounts that you use for your professional, government and official purposes. Exercise the same level of vigilance in protecting your personal accounts as you do with the accounts that you use for official business.

Recommendation: If you receive an unexpected email or message prompting a password reset, don’t click any links in the message. Instead, visit the sender’s official website to check the legitimacy of the request.

2. Facebook branded Page appeal phishing: 

Sometimes phishing campaigns try to convince targeted users that their Facebook account or Page has been suspended, and the message may appear to be sent directly from Facebook. These campaigns are designed to collect your sensitive information with a link to a credential-harvesting domain. With access to your login credentials, attackers will be able to log in to your account and make changes to your settings that will ultimately prevent you from using the account altogether.

Facebook branded Page appeal phishing attacks make illegitimate use of Facebook’s branding to send messages – commonly via Messenger, increasing the impression that the notification is real and personalised. See below for an example of a recent phishing attempt:

Clicking the link in the message will compromise the account and lock users out of their accounts. Resolving this requires escalation to the Facebook security team. Attackers using this method of phishing have developed ways to hide their activity from detection while retaining access to the targeted Facebook Page or account. These campaigns are financially motivated and tend to target influential Facebook Pages with high follower counts, making policymakers attractive targets.

3. Website compromise: 

Another approach that bad actors have used is “strategic web compromise”, in which they infect specific websites that their targets are likely to visit. Navigating to one of these sites will lead to the automatic downloading of malicious code, often in the target’s browser. This malicious code is then used to carry out further attacks, such as copying and sharing information accessed or browsed by the victim. Recently, this type of activity has focused on Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Embassy websites, which are likely to be visited by diplomats, politicians and their professional staffs.

Recommendation: Make use of web browsers only if they have built-in security protections, e.g. Google Chrome, and regularly patch and update the web browsers and other software that you use.

4. Targeting of professional staff 

Online security threats extend not only to you but also to your colleagues and staff. A common tactic is to use the same approach with the entire staff of the targeted victim in order to gather as much valuable information as possible.

Recommendation: Share security materials and best practices with your staff. Internal security awareness training in your organisation should emphasise the value of your information and the likelihood that dedicated malicious actors will try to acquire it.

5. Third-party apps permissions 

Installing applications to your devices can introduce unforeseen risks of account compromise. Many apps allow users to log in via another service for the sake of convenience, but this function also initiates data sharing between services. For instance, certain services allow you to log in using Facebook and, in turn, will receive data about your Facebook account. This form of authentication has been prone to abuse and is a common initial attack tactic for sophisticated bad actors.

Recommendation: It’s important to routinely review the apps downloaded to your devices, and particularly those that have requested access to your Facebook account. We recommend that you delete apps that you don’t recognise, apps that you don’t use and any apps that have particularly broad permissions and allow access to accounts that isn’t necessary. Learn more about how to manage your apps and their permissions.

How government policy to stop extra discount can impact online buyers

Customer service, which is one of the most ignored part on online shopping companies, is now ready to change the game of the e-commerce market with the change in government policy.

As per recent update by the regulatory body ” To tighten loopholes around sellers and brands, the draft policy has suggested that discount curbs will not be limited only to the marketplace, such as Amazon and Flipkart, but would extend to group companies. The government suspects that many of the sellers on these platforms have indirect shareholding from the marketplace operators. Further, the the deep discounts would include checks on differential price for the same product sold offline and online.” as quoted by TOI

Price was one of the most important factor for the buyers while shopping online, but with the suggested changes by the government there will not be any difference in the product price sold online and offline.The draft has also suggested to introduce a pre-set timeframe for offering differential pricing or deep discounts by e-commerce players to customers.

Now customer service is going to play crucial role in success and failure of the e-commerce platform.

As of now return and refund policy on various e-commerce platform does not have consistency or basic minimum requirement and are created mostly to suit the seller even after offering No question asked return/refund policy.

Customer mostly feel helpless when they face any problem and due to which they are loosing trust on the online shopping platform.

 

With implementation of new policy Independent e-commerce regulator will deal with consumer complaints. Which means there is somebody sitting and watching those e-commerce companies and ensuring that customer interest is safeguarded.

Online shopping companies are trying to differentiate themselves by exclusive product launch/ availability, but factors like return refund policy, User experience, convenience to reach out in case of any query, Payment options etc.. will help in the long run, unlike the price.

Many a times customers are also at fault and they fail to accept their mistakes but this situation can also arise when online shopping websites fail to express them terms and conditions. As of now most for most of the online shoppers price is the differentiating factor when they are opting to shop online, but this not true in all the scenarios as sales from Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities also contribute to their growth. Buyers from small town and cities might not have access to all the brands in physical stores but the online shopping websites helps them to access whether it is fashion products, electronics gadgets or books.

 

 

How to deal with Fake news on WhatsApp

Quoting Wikipedia “ Fake news is written and published with the intent to mislead in order to damage an agency, entity, or person, and/or gain financially or politically, often using sensationalist, dishonest, or outright fabricated headline to increase readership, online sharing, and Internet click revenue. “

Government of India sent out a stern warning to WhatsApp asking the Facebook-owned messaging platform to immediately stop the spread of “irresponsible and explosive messages filled with rumours and provocation” on its platform.

Facebook Dating App More about Real long term Relationships

Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook Dating app, which shares some features with Tinder, aims to build ‘real long-term relationships – not just hookups’

 

 

Facebook dating App has been designed to compete with popular dating apps like Tinder.

Facebook has quoted that they aim at building long term relationship – not just hookups.

“We want Facebook to be somewhere where you can start meaningful relationships,” he continued. “We’ve designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning.”

How Facebook Dating App will work:

  • Facebook showed a user’s hypothetical dating profile, which he said would be separate from an individual’s regular profile, accessed in a different section of the site.
  • The dating feature would use only a first name and only be visible to those using the service, not an individual’s Facebook friends.
  • The feature would not show up in the news feed, he added.
  • Users of this feature could browse and “unlock” local events and message others planning to attend
  • If a potential date responded, the two would then connect via a text messaging feature that is not connected to WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.

Zomato Hacked, 17 Million User Records Stolen

“Zomato on Thursday admitted to a major security breach, where around 17 million user records – out of the company’s 120 million users – were stolen from its database. According to the company, usernames and hashed passwords were stolen by the attackers – the fact that the passwords were encrypted means that they will be harder to access, but such troves of data do eventually get cracked, so a sensible move would be to change your Zomato password right away, and also to change it on any site where you use the same passwords. At the same time, we must also remind our users that using the same passwords across multiple sites is a really bad idea, so if you’re doing that anywhere, please change your passwords, and get a password manager.” —NDTV

Snapdeal Cash@Home offer
Snapdeal Cash@Home offer

How to avail Snapdeal Cash @Home benefit?:

  • To use the Cash@Home facility, you have to pay a convenience fee of Rs. 1, either via FreeCharge or using your debit card.
  • The next day, a Snapdeal logistics executive arrives at your house with a POS machine, and you can swipe your card and get your cash.
  • There is a Rs. 2,000 per day limit on the booking, and you don’t have to order anything else
  • Snapdeal’s Cash@Home service is currently live in parts of Gurugram and Bengaluru, and only works through the app.

According to Snapdeal, the money is being distributed as a “goodwill gesture,” and comes from the money it receives as CoD. A cynic would point out that this also frees up the company from having to deposit the cash in its own bank account, as it uses customers to turn its cash into a digital form. And, since the offer is only extended to app users, based around push notifications, it also helps ensure that people install the app, and keep it on their phones. That being said, for customers who are strapped for cash because of long ATM queues, this offering is a pretty big boon to have available.

The USP of the loyalty programme will be its ability to help shoppers search as well as compare products and prices, and buy from the leading e-commerce portals like FlipKart, Amazon, ShopClues, Jabong, Snapdeal. Nectar will act as a rewarding shopping assistant, with shoppers earning Nectar loyalty points or other rewards and special offers, every time they buy online. Adds Vikas Choudhury, managing director, Aimia India. “Every time you shop at your favourite online retailer via the Nectar website you can earn points or other great offers. It’s what we call Shopping pe Topping.” In his view, e-commerce in India has become a very horizontal marketplace – no longer are people buying the fridge and the shirt and the book and the toy from one brand.

Aimia and one of the co-founders of Nectar, U.K.’s largest loyalty program. His strong belief is that eventually all marketing will become data-driven marketing. He was in India to launch Aimia India’s e-commerce loyalty program in India, modeled on the online loyalty component of Nectar UK.
