If your shipping address is within India, then the estimated delivery time is between 2 to 7 days from the date of shipping
If your shipping address if located outside India, then the estimated delivery time is within 10 days from the date of shipping.
Estimated Delivery Times are indicative and are based on a large number of factors including several which are not under Avishya’s direct control. Therefore, the actual delivery time could get delayed. Avishya cannot be held responsible for delays on account of these external factors like customs clearances, human errors and force de majeure reasons like floods, natural calamities etc.
In the case of custom orders, the estimated shipping time will be informed to you and concurrence taken prior to accepting your order.
3. Why does it take 7 days to ship the product? Can’t you ship earlier?
That products that you purchase from Avishya are put together mostly by hand at various weaving centers / artisan villages located across India. On receipt of your order, the products have to be shipped from these locations to our office in Chennai. On arrival at the Avishya office they first go through quality checks by our Quality Assurance team before they are packed carefully, insured for safety and only then they are shipped to you. Hence we definitely need 7 days to ship the product to you
4. Are there any other charges over and above shipping that I need to pay?
In addition to shipping cost, based on the law of the country of import, our carrier may need to get customs clearance for your goods before delivering them to you. Any additional taxes / import duties / customs charges levied by the country of import will be chargeable to the customer. The customer is liable to reimburse the carrier for any such charges paid on behalf of the customer
Similarly, in the case of shipments within India, Octroi or any other local taxes would be paid by the carrier and subsequently collected from the customer
