Online grocery shopping is profitable to the customer.For the first time, I wanted to try online shopping for groceries. I ordered through Flipkart. There I could find many commodities marked as selling rate Rs. 1/-(Sugar 1 kg - Rs. 1/-, Millet Atta 1 kg Rs. 1/- Cow Ghee 100g Rs. 1/-) I was attracted by this offer. But they wanted a purchase of over Rs. 500/- to place the order with a delivery charge of Rs. 50/- and upto Rs. 1000/- for purchase for free delivery.
I added few more items to make the bill Rs. 624 + Rs. 50/-(Delivery charge) = Rs.674/-(paid on line)
I booked the items yesterday at 1800 hrs. They courier delivered the s promptly today at 1830 hours. All items in order. Expiry dates checked and found satisfactory.
My total bill amount as per MRP is Rs. 1076/- and my payment was only Rs. 674/- A saving of Rs. 452/-
Had I gone to the shop to buy these items, I would have paid Rs. 1076/- on the counter and incurred the additional expenditure for conveyance.
