Flipkart is online marketplace with large share in Indian Online retail business.
After recent acquisition and investment from Walmart , there is lot of changes.
One of the major change noticed by some of the affiliate partners, who mentioned that there is cost cutting in online marketing.
One of the affiliate posted that they were earning around Rs 2,000 daily and now there whole monthly budget is Rs 2,500 only. Even if affiliate earn more than Rs 2500 rest of the amount will not be paid.
Also once Flipkart Affiliate exceed the limit they will get email as below.

Last year Snapdeal closed it Affiliate program as part of cost cutting, and most of the partners moved to Amazon and Flipkart.
Flipkart affiliate program also want to promote Home and Furniture categories instead of only Mobile and TV.
If the limits continue more and more partners will move to Amazon India.
Flipkart also closed new registration for Affiliates from 5th May 2018 until further notice.
