SoSasta, is the new entrant in already crowded group discount space. SoSasta which means ‘very cheap’ in Hindi is like another Groupon clone to hit the Indian market. SoSasta is a Friday Media (P) Ltd. venture and have been developed by ex Googlers. SoSata was first launched for Kolkotta and now its gaining presence in cities like Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Delhi.
SoSasta.com provides one deal per day and once the threshold number is achieved the deal is ON. User gets the coupon code and discount details along with the merchant details and can redeem the voucher within the specified time period. User can explore highly lucrative deals on SoSasta.com, some of the discounts going upto 90% as well.
They got an impressive domain name which is quite apt for this business. I recently bought a coupon from them and i quite liked their focus on customer service, they have online chat option for online guidance apart from regular support over the phone. Their deals are quite transparent highlighting all the fine prints clearly ensuring right information user has before buying the coupon.
I was little disappointed by the overall website layout and design, looks little kiddish. First impression wasn’t good and was appearing as if i am flipping a camera roll. In the background they have placed a important monument picture of a city and then displaying the deal for same city. Expectation was high since the team comes from Google.
Not sure which group discount company will remain and make a profitable business but one thing for sure is customer getting good discounts and have multiple options now to grab good deal.
