What are the delivery charges?
Delivery charge varies based on minimum order value.
Currently we charge Rs.70 delivery charge for order value below Rs.200. We also charge additional delivery charge for your orders which are bulk or volumetric in nature. When we incur relatively higher shipping costs on low value or bulk consignments, charging a nominal delivery charge helps us offset logistics costs. Please check your order summary to understand the delivery charges for individual products.
