Recently ordered a Apple OEM product online via Amazon India portal and that’s how changed the absolute definition of…
Original Equipment Manufacturer
Opposite Equivalent Manufacturer.
Two ways to find out what’s genuine and what’s fake:
Firstly make sure when you receive a product online, it must have registered office and phone number of the manufacturer mentioned in the packaging as well as the invoice. Doesn’t matter if it’s sealed pack, all companies abide to have such information printed on the packaging.
Secondly, if there’s a modal number engraved on the product, then go ahead and Google it. You can also get it authenticated from the principal company as well.
Because of such experiences, people fear to buy online and that’s where it hurts eCommerce industries. Amazon India must authenticate such request and charge serious penalties to such sellers who are responsible for such let downs. It hurts seriously!

Product mentioned as Apple OEM isn’t genuine at all.
I was amazed to see the price dropped by 30-40%, so I ordered it instantly, being in impression that seller had a stock clearance sale or something on positive note. But it looked dicey when the product got shipped in 2-3 days and finally when I saw the packaging, in no time, fired the request for refund!
Apple products are packed nicely and that’s why it’s Apple and we’re paying almost 10 times more than a local product to get the feel. Now, I won’t say that this product isn’t working, but it’s not what it’s described, hence NOT GENUINE.
ZERO STAR for the Seller because, that’s the minimum we can input.
ONE STAR for Amazon for amazing door-step delivering a non-genuine product and accepting my refund immediately as it got delivered.
Sometimes, I feel glad about being heard over Social Media. And today was just not that day, especially after checking an immature twitter mention from a World famous bank, couldn’t be more stupid and dumb, please read more stupid and dumb.
Why It’s Stupid and Dumb Relevancy
The original tweet’s about a Quora comment over a WordPress Development question asked, related to Shopping Cart website. But HDFC Bank social media team finds it interesting to throw a Rs. 5000 Cashback Offer for Every Shopper here. It’s totally irrelevant to the nature of tweet and seems that HDFC social media team is just completing the targets by applying immature social media strategies. Duh!
Here’s the original tweet embed of the attempt from HDFC bank’s twitter handle.
Was browsing through some kitchen ware products, where detected this glitch in one of the products by comparing with another e-commerce portal. The MRP price and Selling price were same, however the discount percentage shown had discrepancy. Check out the screenshot below:
Above image clearly states that Flipkart discount computation has some error, as 9% of 1510 is 1375 where it shows 1360. Is Flipkart trying to match pricing with SnapDeal, just like that? Or can we just ignore and continue to shop blindly. 😉
Anyway, after all these systems are humanly made, no offense guys, but stop fooling people around with such superficial glitches.
