What is flipkart advantage?
So typically flipkart advantage implies that your product is quality checked, packed and shipped by flipkart (WS Retail) itself. As a buyer you can get faster shipping, product quality and hassle free returns. If your product you want to buy is marked with Flipkart advantage you can rest assured that everything is going to be fine.
What is the delivery charge?
Normally on orders above Rs. 500 you should get free shipping. But flipkart is a market place with different sellers and each one of them has their own trade terms. Some sellers may charge a delivery fee even if the amount is greater than 500 and some may not charge if the amount is less than 500. i.e it totally depends on the seller.
The standard delivery charge (for most of the sellers) is Rs. 40.
Does flipkart deliver on Sundays?
It depends on the courier company. If the courier company that is delivering in your locality works on Sundays, you will most likely get the product on Sundays too.
I need my order to be delivered very fast – what can I do?
You can select one day delivery (items will be delivered on the next day) or same day delivery (items will be delivered on the day of ordering itself) at checkout. Charges are :
- For one day delivery – Rs. 90 item
- For same day delivery – Rs. 140 per item
I ordered below Rs. 500, yet I didn’t get free shipping?
Flipkart calculates shipping charges on each item in your list separately. So your total order amount must be above Rs. 500 excluding the shipping charges on each item.
i.e if you order 4 books worth Rs. 120 each, the total will be Rs. 480. Assume the shipping charges on each book are Rs. 40. Sums up to Rs. 160 for 4 books. 480 + 160 = 640. So, even though your order is above Rs. 500 in this case, you will not get free shipping.
