YEPME.com Vs. Myntra.com

YEPME.com has been advertising on TV quite aggressively, so when I wanted to buy new shoes, I thought why not check their website. I also wanted to look at the collection of shoes on Myntra.com, to which, I’ll come to shortly.

I spent about an hour checking various shoes on YEPME. I finally selected brown color shoes with brown lace and black sole. I didn’t want white color anywhere because I am afraid it will become dirty with mud. With brown color, though, exposure to mud & dust will enhance its look, not degrade. Maintenance-free πŸ˜› πŸ™‚

I also wanted to look at shoes on other sites so I went to Flipkart and Amazon.in to check out their collection. The shoes I selected at YEPME.com were more impressive and offered excellent value for money, so I finally selected that pair.

You maybe wondering what happened to Myntra.com. I went to that site to see: “You better install our app on your mobile to even have a look at our collection. And forget buying it from your desktop browser,”Β using slightly sweeter words.

So I just closed their website, thanked the team at Myntra.com for having made my decision easier, and ordered from YEPME.com. YEPME not only had a great website accessible on my laptop, offered an excellent price, but also gave me a further discount for paying upfront through a credit card (instead of CoD).

Imagine how much strain my eyes would’ve had to take to stare at the collection of shoes on Mytra mobile app for one hour using my small 4.7″ mobile screen. Especially considering I can do that comfortably on a 20″ desktop monitor. (I thought even my 15.5″ laptop screen was small and use a 20″ monitor to read!)

Whoever came up with that #epicfailΒ #apponly strategy should know this: You just lost a customer to a rival because they had a functional website accessible from my desktop. Are you happy now?

For the viewing pleasure of Myntra.com team, I will show the awesome shoes I bought from YEPME for Rs. 368, including two-day delivery cost. (Maybe you can consider that site for your personal shopping. Don’t forget, you can shop using your computer.) Here they are:
