Shipping Policy

What are the delivery charges?
Delivery charge varies with each PRODUCT.

We incur relatively higher shipping costs on low value items. In such cases, charging a nominal delivery charge helps us offset logistics costs. The delivery charge may be waived off in some cases, if you shop with us for a minimum predefined value. As per the current shipping policy for order with delivery address to certain predefined pincodes within Kolkata shipping is free for purchases of Rs. 500 and above. For free delivery to all other pincodes the minimum purchase amount is Rs.500. We may sometime offer free delivery. It’s on thinkerslane.com.

What is the estimated delivery time?
We generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
Product’s availability with us
The destination to which you want the order shipped to and our location

Are there any hidden costs (sales tax, octroi etc) on items sold by thinkerslane.com?
There are NO hidden charges when you make a purchase on thinkerslane.com. List prices are final and all-inclusive. The price you see on the product page is exactly what you would pay.

Product is not/cannot ship to my area. Why?
If our Partner Courier Service does not offers cash on delivery on your location, we can not provide you cash on delivery even after accepting your order. Then, either you have to pay online or by cheque. Otherwise, we may suggest you to shop our product from our store on flipkart or other ecommerce website, which offer cash on delivery on your pincode.

Why is the CoD option not offered in my location?
Availability of CoD depends on the ability of our courier partner servicing your location to accept cash as payment at the time of delivery.

Our courier partners have limits on the cash amount payable on delivery depending on the destination and your order value might have exceeded this limit. Please enter your pin code on the product page to check if CoD is available in your location.
