On Friday, June 13, Flipkart said it would make the delivery easier with the launch of scheduled delivery service for its customers.
The new delivery system allows customers to choose a specific date and time for delivery. The time can vary from the next day onwards, a feature that is unthinkable for other retailers like Jabong.
Flipkart said the new service will be free of cost for Flipkart customers, will initially be restricted to large appliances but soon covers other categories.
The new delivery option will be available in Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata.
flipkart said it would soon offer its customers installation along with delivery during the pre-selected slots.
“Schedule Delivery as a feature, serves to enhance the online shopping experience, especially in metros where time constraints are a huge bottleneck for customers. While this is especially true of large appliances – we intend to extend this benefit to other categories soon,” said Rahul Chari, VP, Supply Chain Engineering, Flipkart.
