After Amazon promised in a day delivery, Flipkart has now upped the ante with a **Same Day delivery promise** for an introductory price of an additional 140 bucks. The next day delivery still stands at Rs.90 additional just as before. Post the offer the delivery charges will be raised to Rs.200, which in my opinion is a bit on the higher side. Even if a person takes a bus or auto from their Whitefiled sort facility for instance and come directly to my house, this is perhaps what it might cost.
By placing an additional cost, Flipkart is trying to address those customers who would otherwise shop on Amazon, as well as those customers who have the fastest fingers first philosophy on online shopping. So, what are you waiting for? Go and grab that favorite gadget of yours and get it on the same day if you order before 12 noon. Yeah, obviously no later than that :-)
Let's now wait for Amazon to counter that and then Flipkart to come up with 2-hr shipping !
