Performance Testing for One of
India’s Largest E-commerce & Platforms – A Case Study

About the Client

The client is one of India’s largest e-commerce platforms, with almost 40% of the market share and millions of registered users. They offer a huge category of retail and payment services, delivering seamless experiences to both sellers and customers on the portal.

The Goal

The client’s annual calendar features a week-long mega sale, with offers and discounts on products across all categories. To make sure that the customers can get the best out of the sale days and every purchase is delivered without a hitch, their e-commerce portal needs to be available 24×7, with all systems working exactly as expected.

The goal for Qapitol QA was to perform Scaled Performance Testing, to ensure that the client’s systems can handle the huge volume of queries during the sales days. The focus was on:

  • Identifying the maximum load the system can handle at any given time
  • Implement solutions to help the client systems handle increasing queries on the fly
  • Checking query response times and working to bring that down to a minimum
