What are the delivery charges?

Delivery charge varies.

Our delivery charges are as below;

Free delivery for order value is more than Rs.999, in the case of books we deliver it free for order value is more than Rs.399.

For order value is less than (<) Rs.499, than delivery charge is Rs.79.

If order value is between Rs.500 to Rs.799, than delivery charge is Rs.49.

If order value is between Rs.800 to Rs.999, than delivery charge is Rs.29.

We incur relatively higher shipping costs on low value items. In such cases, charging a nominal delivery charge helps us to offset logistics costs. The delivery charge may be waived off for some item, if you shop with them for a minimum predefined value.

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

It is possible that we or our courier partners have a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

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:

  • Products available with our supplier / manufacturer

Are there any hidden costs (sales tax, octroi etc) on items sold by you?

There are NO hidden charges when you make a purchase on SmartcliQ. 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 our shipping policy.

Why is the CoD option not offered in my location?
