Flipkart introduces same-day guaranteed delivery in select cities
Flipkart, one of India's leading e-commerce websites, after rolling out guaranteed one-day shipping in select cities across the country in December, has now introduced a 'Same-day Guarantee' delivery service in select cities.

Flipkart's Same-day Guarantee can be availed by paying an additional Rs. 140 per item (special introductory offer, regular charge is Rs. 200) and is only available for orders placed before noon. The online retailer notes that the new same-day deliver guarantee is currently available in Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Noida, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Kolkata, Manesar, Navi Mumbai and Thane.

Notably, the new offer from Flipkart is a limited period offer and is valid only on orders placed between April 28 and April 30. The e-commerce site's faster delivery page notesthat, "If Flipkart is not able to deliver the item in the guaranteed promise time, you get the product for free (up to Rs. 5,000) as part of our money-back guarantee."

Flipkart elaborates that the order placed under same-day guarantee would be delivered by 9pm on the date promised during checkout. Further, the e-commerce site confirms that if an order is not delivered on the promised date under the same-day guarantee scheme, the product value would be refunded to the customer's Flipkart Wallet within 24-hours of the order and is non-refundable. Users can redeem the product value (up to Rs. 5,000 maximum) for future shopping on Flipkart.

Those shopping on Flipkart to avail the 'Same-day Guarantee' must ensure to select the option during checkout.

Flipkart, following footsteps of Amazon, had launched the guaranteed one-day shipping in December last year. Customers placing their orders before 6pm have the option to get it delivered to their preferred address the next business day for an additional cost of Rs. 90 per item by selecting the 'In-a-day Guarantee' option during checkout.

It's worth mentioning that Amazon.in, Amazon's Indian online store, had launched the 'guaranteed one-day delivery' offer first for few select Indian cities, at an extra charge.

Snapdeal, following the lead of Amazon India and Flipkart, introduced its version of guaranteed same-day shipping, called 'Express Delivery' in January this year.
