Shipping & delivery

What are the delivery charges?

The delivery charge varies according to order quantity.

Shipping charges will be charged if the order value below 500Β  above that shipping will be free. However, some areas can be charged for shipping according to the area.

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

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners have a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners do not work on Sundays and this is factored into the delivery dates.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

  • The destination to which you want the order shipped and the location of the Seller.

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

There are NO hidden charges when you make a purchase on Kritarth Handicrafts. 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..

Why does the estimated delivery time vary?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, the geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination, and the courier partner’s time-to-deliver in your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don’t have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

The website does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Please enter your Pincode on the product page (you don’t have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven’t provided your Pincode until the checkout stage, the Pincode in your shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on

  • Whether the Seller ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

Why is the CoD option not offered in my location?

Availability of CoD depends on the ability of our courier partner servicing your location to accept cash as payment at the time of delivery.

Our courier partners have limits on the cash amount payable on delivery depending on the destination and your order value might have exceeded this limit. Please enter your pin code on the product page to check if CoD is available in your location.
