Frequently Asked Questions for Buyers

Delivery & Returns

What all countries you deliver?
We provide the delivery to almost all the countries in the world.

What is the delivery time?
Delivery time vary from product to product, it depends on the stock availability and processing time. So for approximate delivery time check "Delivery & Return" tab given on each product details page.

I am in hurry and can't wait for delivery time mentioned on product, what to do?
Well go for "Priority Order" method. It charges you slightly extra but you can get your order processed faster and with top most priority. For details contact us.

Do you deliver to P.O. Box?
No, courier companies don't delivery parcels on P.O. Box address so we can't delivery on it.

What are shipping/delivery charges?
Shipping charges differ from product to product & country to country, so for approximate shipping charges to your country look for the "Delivery Charges" section under "Delivery & Shipping" tab given on each product details page.

How do you calculate shipping charges?
Shipping charges get calculated on the basis of either the total volume of the order parcel or the total weight of products (whichever higher). It is as per the standard rules & regulations of International shipping.

Shipping charges get reduced on higher weights & volume. So it keeps reducing when you buy more products.

Do you offer free shipping?
Yes sometimes, but it depends of any current offer & promotion we are running. Checkout our Offer & Promotion page for currently running offers and promotions.

What if I buy more than 1 item, will you reduce my shipping charges?
Shipping charges are calculated automatically by our shopping system on the basis of your total products in your shopping cart. We don't have any manual interaction with it. But yes definitely, the higher the number of products in your cart, the economic the shipping charges will be.

Why shipping charges are high even for a small product like juti or turban? Are you trying to gain high profit?
Not at all, actually as written above the shipping charges get calculated on the basis of either the total volume of your order parcel or total weight of products you ordered. We pack parcels in corrugated boxes for safety in transits, so for small/low weighted products, total volume of the box get counted instead of weight.

Custom Charges & Import Duties
Are there any additional possible charges in delivery?
It may be and mayn't be. When we ship international parcels, depending on the rules of destination country (your country) you may be charged for some sort of import/custom duties/fees/octroi charges etc. As this is not in our hand so we can't anticipate/control these charges.

What is Custom Charge?
Custom charges OR, import duty OR, octroi are the import taxes levied by destination country's (where you want delivery of order) Government.

How much?
It differs country by country. There is no generalized international rule for this, it is controlled my government of each country. So we can't anticipate it.

Can't you help me save on these Custom Charges?
We would definitely love to help you save if we could, but unfortunately we are unable to help you any.

Is it necessary paying Custom Charges?
Yes (If applicable).

What if I buy small items like a shoe pair? Do I still have to pay Custom Charges?
Mostly custom charges OR, import taxes get applied over a certain amount/value of parcel. For e.g. -if you country's law says that minimum value of taxable import parcel should be $100 and you are importing a parcel wroth $50 only, then no custom charges will be applicable on you. But again, it differs country by country.
