Daraz did not miss a single chance of advertising their 11.11 sale online as well as offline. Every person who is even the least bit active on any social media platforms knew about the ‘Biggest sale in Pakistan’ or the world… I’m not sure. But was it really the biggest sale ever? Or was it the biggest online scam?
Famously known as the Daraz GyaraGyara sale in Pakistan, the 11 11 sale is the brainchild of Alibaba group. Daraz was acquired by the same group in May 2018 and since then, Daraz has introduced Daraz Mall, Global Shipping, Daraz wallet, etc. Basically, it has gotten better since the acquisition with many options available in the app that were not available before.
But despite all the improvements, why does Daraz keep disappointing its customers with its scam like sales? Daraz GyaraGyara or Daraz Black Friday sale has been under fire previously as well because of the deceiving pricing methods. Twitteratis were quick to post about the sale and how it was all a scam.
