In an attempt to woo customers and to provide faster delivery of products, ecommerce player, Amazon India has announced that it will now deliver products on Sunday to residential addresses across 100 cities at no extra cost.
Now, customers on Amazon.in can count Sunday as a regular day for receiving deliveries. Customers, while placing an order, can select an address marked as “Home” and see Sunday delivery promises during checkout.
In addition, customers choosing standard (2-4 days) delivery to residential addresses served by Amazon Logistics will see Sundays being considered as a working day while computing delivery promises.
The company will continue to expand Sunday delivery promises for residential addresses for all FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon) products to other cities.
Speaking on the move, Samuel Thomas, Director Transportation & Logistics, Amazon India said, “With our Sunday delivery promise, customers now have the benefit of getting uninterrupted deliveries of their orders through the week. We are very proud to be the first ones in India to offer Sunday Delivery at this scale. This capability now allows us to make faster and more accurate promises to customers.”
The company said that the customers who are ordering with one-day delivery on Saturday and selecting a residential address will now see Sunday promises instead of Monday promises that were shown earlier.
