In the last couple of days, through a massive advertising campaign Flipkart announced the launch of ‘Same Day Guarantee Delivery’ in 10 cities.
Customers placing orders by 12 noon on a business day can have their orders delivered to them by 9 pm on the same day, Flipkart said.
In the first phase the service is available in Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Noida, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Manesar, Navi Mumbai and Thane. Flipkart plans to scale up the service to other cities soon.
Of course, the same delivery service is not free; it is available for additional shipping fees of Rs. 200 with an introductory shipping fee of Rs. 140.
The icing on the cake is that if Flipkart is not able to deliver the item in the guaranteed promised time, then you get the product for free (up to Rs. 5,000) as part of its money-back guarantee offer.
