Shipping

Where All Do We Deliver?

We deliver to all and any postal address around the world. However, at this time we do not service deliveries to Russia, Bangladesh, Ghana and Pakistan. Please note that residential shipments to USA & some other countries will be left at door if someone is not there to receive the package or no one answers the door bell. Our courier agents USPS / DHL / FEDEX / TNT / UPS / Speed Post etc. will not be able to provide sign confirmation of delivery made in such cases.
To ensure that no disputes arise due to this, kindly make sure that someone is there to receive the package when courier delivery is attempted.
No deliveries are made on Saturdays and Sundays in most countries as they follow a 5 day work culture. In many Islamic countries Fridays are normal off days. Further, deliveries are generally made during normal working hours of courier companies and these vary from country to country.
Please note that there are no shipments made from the store on Sundays and public holidays as our logistics partner, does not make any pick-ups on those days.
In case of delivery within India, we deliver through DTDC/Overnight courier or other approved couriers.
Courier companies do not deliver to P.O. Box address, so we request you to provide full street address with pin code / zip code.
