Shipping Service

The services available and the cost of shipping depend on

  • Where you are shipping your order
  • The shipping service you have chosen (for example, International)
  • The delivery option you have chosen (for example, Courier – Air or Surface, Indian Registered Post, V.P.P)

Each item we sell has an “Availability” time displayed next to it (for example, “45 Business Days”). This figure tells you when the item is ready to leave our warehouse. The total time it will take to receive an item is determined by adding the “Availability” time to the number of days your shipping method will take. If the “Availability” of an item indicates “In Stock”, your order will be processed within 3 to 4 Business Days and will reach you in the time taken to process your order plus number of days taken in transit of your order.
