Hi,

Till date in eCommerce domain this is the most unbelievable stuff which I have seen ever before. Can anyone tell me how craftsvila is  selling this 64 page book at Rs. 5 only and that too with free shipping.

Currently this product is out of stock so I am unable to check its authenticity. I would like to know if there is any specific reason for spending such huge money on marketing or acquiring customers.

And if they are spending money on acquiring customers then why this book, as I may not feel comfortable to get this book delivered at Home address. The Link is given below.

manish - good pick!!!  - funny... i shared this on my biz page y'day saying, 

Kamasutra Book Rs. 5 Only. Valid today only & Limited Stock. Buy from here:http://www.craftsvilla.com/kamasutra-mini-english.html
my guess is they're getting rid of excess/dead stock and creating a bit of buzz (though spending more than earning).
in my opinion, people find it way more comfy ordering books like "this" at home. and those who don't, download the relevant parts!!!
p.s: kamasutra is nothing to be shy of - it's artistic and educational too!!! 

Arre Baba, Kama Sutra IS AN INDIAN CRAFT!!

Next, they will offer to Demo it also for us :-)))

Crafts villa keeps 15% margin on product and pays seller 10rs for product display. this book may be a fake copy from Bangkok, China.

Craftsvilla sells worldwide.

Because of the market size (greater sales)  they can sacrifice the profit margins of certain items also creating required buzz.

Isn't that a brilliant idea to attract traffic to your portal ? I already see a count of 654 views here (including mine) and I am sure atleast 10% would have hit the link already. So even if you sell a few Kamasutra-mini at a loss and quickly run out of stock, you are getting a good amount of visitors/buyers to your portal for free!!  Maybe a good marketing stint !!!

Now, the book is available for Rs 30.
