What is flipkart shipping?

1 Answers

Flipkart shipping means delivery. Shipping is used to describe the time required by the company or site to deliver the product to the customer. If there is free shipping on any order, it means you don't have to pay any shipping charges on that order. But if there are shipping fees on any order then you will have to pay that fees along with the overall price of the product.

In Flipkart, shipping fees are calculated on the volumetric weight or actual weight, whichever is higher among both of them. This is also for items which are lightweight but occupy more shipping space.

For shipping of product, Flipkart uses its own logistics for pickup, called eKart. when the product is ready to ship by the product, seller packs the product and then marked the product as 'ready for pickup'. Then the Flipkart's eKart executive pick up the product for the further delivery process. After that order's status changes to 'Dispatch'.

There are 3 types of shipping-

·         Local or Intracity: When the item is shipped within a city.

·         Zonal or Intrazone: When the Item is shipped within the borders of any zone (North, South, East, West)

·         National or Interzone: When the Item is shipped across the zones.
