Shipping

What are the delivery charges?

Delivery charge varies with each product group.

Shipping terms incur relatively higher shipping costs on low value items. In such cases, charging a nominal delivery charge helps them offset logistics costs. Please check your order summary to understand the delivery charges for individual products.

For Products listed as category Accessory  a Rs 100 charge for delivery per item is applied if the order value is less than Rs 500. While, orders of Rs 500 or above are delivered free.

 

What is the estimated delivery time?

We generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product’s availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and location of the Seller.

 

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each produt?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner’s time-to-deliver in your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don’t have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

 

Why is the CoD option not offered in my location?

Availability of CoD depends on the ability of our courier partner servicing your location to accept cash as payment at the time of delivery.

Our courier partners have limits on the cash amount payable on delivery depending on the destination and your order value might have exceeded this limit. Please enter your pin code on the product page to check if CoD is available in your location.
