What Does The Different Order Status Mean?
‘Payment Pending Authorization’: Your order has been logged and we are waiting for authorization from the payment gateway.
‘Payment Authorized, Order under Processing’: Authorization has been received from the payment gateway and your order is being processed by the seller.
‘Order Shipped’: Your order has been shipped by the seller and is on its way to the location specified by you for delivery.
‘Order canceled’: The order was canceled.
When And How Can I Cancel An Order?
You can cancel your order before it reaches the “Shipped” status simply by clicking on the cancel link on your My Accounts page.
Why Do I Have To Pay For Shipping?
Since sellers incur relatively higher shipping costs on low-value items, we charge a flat amount of Rs 50 on orders of less than Rs 500. However, if you buy more than one item from the same seller then even if the value of each of the items is less than Rs 500, shipping is free. That is, let’s suppose you buy only a packet of biscuits costing Rs 180 in a single order, you will be charged Rs 50 as shipping charges for its delivery. On the other hand, should you order for four packets of the same biscuit from the same seller then you would NOT have to pay anything extra for shipping. The same is true even if you buy different products each costing less than Rs 500 so long as the seller is the same. So, for example, you purchase a biscuit packet of Rs 180, a protein bar of Rs 240 and a pack of multivitamin tablets of Rs 120, adding up to a total order of Rs 540 then you will NOT be charged extra for shipping so long as you are buying all these items from the same seller, let us say X. However, if you buy the first two items from X and the last item from Y, then both your purchases will incur shipping charges of Rs 50 each as neither is over Rs 500.
Are There Any Hidden Costs (Sales Tax, Octroi Etc ) On Items Sold By Sellers?
No. There are zero hidden charges when you make a purchase on Merricart. List prices are final and all-inclusive. The price you see on the product page is exactly what you would pay.
What Is The Estimated Delivery Time?
Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time is dependent on the following factors
• The Seller offering the product
• Product’s availability with the Seller
• The destination to which you want the order shipped to and geographical location of the Seller
For items listed as “In Stock”, Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode. This is usually 3-4 business days.
Why Does The Estimated Delivery Time Vary From Seller To Seller?
You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner’s time-to-deliver in your location.
Why Does The Delivery Date Not Correspond To The Delivery Timeline Mentioned?
It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners have a holiday between your order date and the estimated delivery date based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored into the delivery dates.
Why Cannot A Seller Delivery To My Area?
Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on
• Whether he serves your location
• Legal restrictions, if any, on 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
How Does The Delivery Process Work?
All deliveries are handled by reputed shipping partners. You will be informed when the seller ships your consignment and will also be provided a tracking number. Sellers ship through Ship Rocket Logistics agents. During checkout, you will be prompted to provide your location’s pin code in order to ensure that the seller does indeed deliver to you.
How Are Items Packaged?
Products sold by seller are shipped in Merricart packages with waterproof plastic wrap. Fragile items like biscuits are safely secured with bubble wrap. Sellers are rated on packaging quality which in turn will affect overall seller rating.
