New Delhi. If you do online shopping on the e-commerce platform Flipkart, then you may have to pay extra charge for product delivery. However, this charge will be taken from those users who use Cash on Delivery Mode (COD) for payment while shopping online from Flipkart. Actually, users who select Cash on Delivery (COD) mode from Flipkart will take an additional delivery charge of Rs.
What was the rule till now?
Let us tell you that till now free delivery was done on ordering the same online from Flipkart. However, out of this, an additional charge is taken on the delivery of certain products. 40 rupees are charged on the delivery of plus mark product from Flipkart Plus. However, there is a condition that the price of that product should be less than Rs 500. Whereas no charge is taken on delivery of goods costing more than Rs.500.
Why had to take such a decision?
Actually, Flipkart is trying to make maximum number of users use digital mode for payment. Because it is easy for Flipkart to accept payment in digital mode. It is also convenient to give a refund on cancellation of the product.
There will be problems in small villages and towns
However, relying on digital payments is difficult in rural areas. In such a situation, more goods are ordered in small towns and villages by making cash on payment. In such a situation, it is believed that Flipkart’s move to charge additional charges on cash on delivery mode will directly affect the people living in villages and small towns. Let us tell you that the option of free cash on delivery is still being given by Flipkart’s rival e-commerce company Amazon.
