10 Online Shopping Secrets For Flipkart

Flipkart is one of the biggest e-shopping websites in India. If you don’t know about the site, it is almost synonymous to living under a rock. With its exciting offers and exclusive benefits, Flipkart has established itself as a leader in online shopping.

Here are 10 online shopping secrets by Flipkart that you can benefit from:

1. No delivery charge above 500

On products whose value is below 500 rupees, Flipkart levies a delivery charge which depends on the distance of the delivery location. However, if you order item(s) of value 500 or above, no delivery charge is applied. So, better add items to your cart as and when required and when the total amount is above 500, order them away!

2. Order during Sales

Flipkart brings you sales on festivals like no other platform. With the company offering at least one sale a month, you are actually in a loss if you choose not to order anything on sale day. 

Here is a list of some of the major sales on Flipkart.

3. EMI on debit card and No-cost EMIs on Debit Card Flipkart Offers 

A great mode of payment for everyone is EMI. Equated Monthly Installments provides you with a convenient way to buy an expensive product by paying small amounts over a few months. 

Standard EMIs charge an interest (generally 8-14%) per month. However, a new feature on Flipkart – ‘The No-cost EMI’ on mobile phones does not levy any interest on the total amount. All you pay is the amount you see at the time of buying the product, in monthly installments.

Also, initially, EMIs were available only on Credit Cards. But because the number of debit card users are 26 times more than that of credit card users, the feature of availing EMI on Debit Cards on Flipkart has been recently made available to select customers. 

To check eligibility SMS DCEMI to 57575. You would receive a message informing which debit card of yours can be used for availing EMI on Debit Card on Flipkart.

4. 10-15% discounts on select cards

Apart from the discounts provided on products, Flipkart offers additional discounts, up to 15% if you make a purchase using specific bank cards. These discounts can be on credit or debit cards. And the bank(s) providing these discounts can vary from sale to sale and from time to time. Just be sure to keep an eye out when you buy your product.

5. Use PhonePe wallet, get cashback!

PhonePe is an application launched and managed by Flipkart. It provides exclusive cashback on Flipkart products. Make a PhonePe account right away and save more!

6. Mobile Exchange offers

Mobile phones being one of the most bought gadgets, have very attractive discounts. Additionally, you can exchange your old phone for a new one and pay even less (Buyback Guarantee). Be sure to also not miss out on the Flipkart Mobiles Bonanza Sale from 26th to 30th August 2019.

7. Early access to Flipkart Plus members

A Flipkart Plus membership comes with its benefits. And one of them is early access to Sale items before the sale! Another attractive benefit is free and fast delivery on an item of any value.

8. Flipkart Compare

Flipkart provides an exciting and novel way to shop. It is ‘Flipkart compare’ – a feature that allows one to compare 2 or more items on the site, site by site. You may then select the item that best suits you.

9. Play Games or Quizzes and Win Prizes

You can also win prizes free of cost. Just play games on the Flipkart site or give correct answers to quizzes on the Flipkart app.

10. Buy from other sellers, Hassle-free return policy

Flipkart also provides you with the option of choosing other sellers selling the same product for a lesser value or a lesser delivery time. You can go for either, based on your convenience. 

Furthermore, you can return any product within 10-15 days of buying, and the amount will be credited to your account in the 10-15 days after the return.

Happy Flipkarting!
