My Experience With Jabong
I’m an avid online shopper and I’ve purchased several times from Jabong. Everytime I’ve got my orders delivered at my doorstep within 2/3 days. They usually send SMS alerts after the shipment is done and again on the delivery day mentioning the name and phone no. of the courier person .So , if you’re not at home or if there are some other issues , you can contact the courier person and talk to him . I find it really helpful. You can even check your products before accepting the package . ( No other site has this facility )
I recently bought a pair of jeans and a pair of earrings from Jabong . The order was confirmed on Saturday night . Though there was a Sunday in between but I received the products within 3 days as usual, on Tuesday afternoon. The packaging is always wonderful , fragile things being carefully bubble wrapped . Moreover , I got huge discount on the pair of jeans and an exclusive web offer ( discount coupon of 150/- ) Great pleasure for a shopaholic like me !
Things That Could Be Done For Further Betterment
The packaging can be made eco-friendly . Instead of using plastic bags , paper bags or boxes can be used .
Along with the existing sections, introduction of electronic goods , books and music sections will help to attract more traffic.
