How it GOSF Live Works?

The concept took birth in the United States in 2005. Following Black Friday sales, and as precursor to Christmas, the event was tagged Cyber Monday. The idea was to provide online discounts and deals in similar fashion to that of Black Friday sales. The very first GOSF was held in 2012 and got promoted through You Tube, a Google subsidiary.

In Pakistan the event is normally extended for three continuous days, letting the buyers enjoy to the most.
