Amazon India on Monday announced it will now be able to deliver goods on Sundays in 100 cities across India.
India Sunday Delivery service is available only for residential addresses, and for all products that are Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA). The US-based online retail giant also announced that the service will be expanded to more cities soon.
The firm says with the launch of Sunday Delivery, users can count Sunday as a "regular day for receiving deliveries from Amazon.in," regardless of the delivery type chosen by the user. To see Sunday Delivery promises during checkout, customers need to ensure their residential address is marked as 'Home' in the Address Type field.
Amazon explains that a customer ordering with One-Day Delivery on Saturday and selecting a residential address will now see Sunday promises instead of Monday. The service is available with all types of delivery, including Same-Day, and Two-Day. The company reiterates that users selecting the standard (2-4 days) delivery will see Sundays being considered as a working day while computing delivery promises.
