What are the Shipping charges?
Shipping charge varies according to the weight of Parcel.
We incur relatively higher shipping costs on low value items. In such cases, charging a nominal shipping charge helps them offset logistics costs. Please check your order summary to understand the shipping charges.
For Products listed on CartLoot charge for delivery per item is applied as per weight.
Why does the Shipping date not correspond to the delivery timeline mentioned?
It is possible that we or our courier partners have a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines mentioned on website. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates. Since it is cross-border delivery it may take some days extra due to custom clearance.
What is the estimated Shipping time?
We generally procure and ship the items within 24 hours.
However Inter-continental deliveries may take upto 7-10 business days. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
- The type of product
- Product's availability with us.
