Shipping Policy

What are the delivery charges?

Delivery charge varies with each Seller.

Sellers 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.

 

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that our courier partners have a holiday between the day you’re placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Our courier partners do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

 

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:

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

 

Are there any hidden costs (GST, etc) on items sold by Sellers on E Khareedo?

There are NO hidden charges when you make a purchase on E Khareedo. List prices are final and all-inclusive. The price you see on the product page is exactly what you would pay.

Delivery charges are not hidden charges and are charged (if at all) extra depending on the our shipping policy.

 

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each consumer?

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

 

E Khareedo does not/cannot ship to your area. Why?

Please enter your pincode on the product page (you don’t have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven’t provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

 

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on

  • Whether E Khareedo ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times E Khareedo prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

 

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.

 

I need to return an item, how do I arrange for a pick-up?

Returns are easy. Contact Us to initiate a return. You will receive a call explaining the process, once you have initiated a return.

Wherever possible Bluedart Logistics will facilitate the pick-up of the item. In case, the pick-up cannot be arranged through Bluedart, you can return the item through a third-party courier service. Return fees are borne by E Khareedo.

 

What do the different tags like “In Stock”, “Available” mean?

‘In Stock’

For items listed as “In Stock”, Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available).

 

‘Available’

E Khareedo might not have the item in stock but can procure it when an order is placed for the item. The delivery time will depend on the estimated procurement time and the estimated shipping time to your location.
