Post GST Effects on Refurbished Smartphones

Last week was nothing short of havoc in the Indian telecom industry with the introduction of Goods & Service Tax (GST) by the government. The prices of smartphones have considerably increased, making it difficult for shoppers to buy. Smartphones lovers in India are finding it difficult to digest sudden hike in prices of the brand new smartphones. Will GST really impact the price of budget phones?

It doesn’t matter whether it is new or refurbished smartphone, GST has affected each of them. Now, the question arises that the so called budget phones, which are claimed to be affordable, are they still affordable?

No! GST has affected re-commerce sector immensely. Nevertheless, before reaching out to any conclusion, we have to understand how GST has affected re-commerce sector:

Budget-Smartphone-Mobile-Phone-002

BEFORE GST:

  1. When a consumer sells his old smartphone to the buyer (refurbisher). Then there is no VAT involved in this transaction because seller is not a registered entity
  2. On the other side, when refurbisher restores the old smartphone to fully working condition and sells the refurbished smartphone in the market, then he becomes liable to pay 5% VAT. Let me remind you one thing, that there is no VAT credited to refurbisher, since he had purchased old smartphone from an individual entity.
  3. What does this mean? It means, seller/manufacturer refurbisher had to pay the amount (VAT) from their pocket itself, which they were earlier deducted from their profit margins and this transaction was already proving to be a harmful one.

POST GST ERA

Since the implementation of GST, the VAT % has increased from 5% to 18%, cutting down the profit margins of the refurbisher to bare minimum. This dramatic hike in the VAT has made re-commerce sector non profitable and re-commerce companies are forced to increase the price of their products to survive in this difficult time.

However, despite the implementation of GST, there are number of leading companies in refurbished e-commerce sector including overcart, shoplcues, and yaantra.com who are still ensuring that their shoppers wouldn’t have to face the struggle while buying refurbished smartphone. These re-commerce smartphone companies are coming with daily deals, several offers and introducing several coupon codes consistently to allow customer to get relief.

CONCLUSION

While all of this is happening, we cannot deny the fact that it has become one hell of a trouble for these companies to survive after GST. Government needs to take some actions; probably they should lower down a certain percentage of tax to give some relief to the Refurbished companies.

Rising Popularity of Xiaomi Mobile Phones

Looking at the market share today in the country no one can deny the exponential growth of Mi Phones in a very short period of time. As said by the experts, to succeed in the Indian marketplace as an International brand, one has to work and deliver their business the Indian way only. Xiaomi has applied this to their direct advantage and the stats spill out the popularity of this Chinese brand, as the second largest smart phone brand in the country with a market share of nearly 11% beaten by only Samsung which holds 25% of the total smart phone customers.dims.jpgThere are various factors that have contributed to the great success of Mi phones. The most important one being the price which the brand offers to it’s customers. The availability of prominent hardware features along with the sleek design is the main cause of attraction for customers focusing on value for money. The models launched by Xiaomi fulfils all the hardware requirements of the user that demands profound camera, (nearly) latest processors, long battery life, metal design beating the plastic ones and many more adding to the list. Just have a look at the various top selling Mi smartphones 

Next important factor that contributes to the success is the marketing strategy. Other than looking for a well known icon or a popular face the company has made a smarter move by reaching out to the valued customers directly via the Social media platforms like Facebook using the internet services. The company has approached the buyers directly aborting all the intermediate processes.

Strategies are extremely important but what adds more to it is the leadership of an experienced mind. The hiring of Google’s former employee Hugo Barra, as the Vice President of International Business, is one of the significant moves by Xiaomi that has helped the brand to reach current level of success. Barra has now resigned from the post because of his health issues and is now serving Facebook.

xiaomi-mi-5-100647048-orig.jpg

A great customer support for its customers all over the mainland covering all the major and minor issues is another plus point of the company. The option of the continued warranty of the MI phones even after the model has been rooted by the customer itself for various reasons is the sweet treat that other international brands have not been able to provide until now.

A common problem among this generation of smart phone users is that half of the amount of storage space of the phone is occupied by the pre installed apps in the device. Though most of them are not used frequently by the user, and sometimes its frustrating for the user who tries to install another app and fails because of not enough storage notification. This problem is also resolved by the Xiaomi, as it has given the facility to delete these apps and make the device even more likable for the end consumer.

Well! We hope that your works extremely fine as claimed by the manufacturer. Even then for any issues that you might be experiencing with your handset and you end up losing your phone’s warranty, we welcome you to Yaantra,  for a hassle free service with full customer satisfaction and value for your money.
