Comparing Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal and Tradus One-Day Delivery Services

A few months back, Amazon announced ‘Guaranteed one-day delivery’ service and Flipkart followed suite with ‘In-a-day delivery’ service And now, here are Snapdeal and Tradus with the same.

Snapdeal’s Express Delivery and Tradus’s same day delivery services are special. They are offered for free while Flipkart and Amazon offer for additional charges.


Here’s how the e-commerce giants differ in one-day delivery services :


  1. Flipkart – 90 INR per item.
  2. Amazon – 99 per order for one-day delivery option and 79 per order for two-days delivery option.
  3. Snapdeal – Free
  4. Tradus – Free

Obviously, Snapdeal’s and Tradus’ free one-day delivery service is only for a limited time. They’ll start charging additional bucks soon.


  • Flipkart – Offers in 13 cities for. Pune, Hyderabad, Delhi, Noida, Chennai, Mumbai, Bangalore, Gurgaon, Ghazidabad, Faridabad, Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Nagpur. Will expand to other cities soon.
  • Amazon – Offers in selected pincodes. The cities include Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad and Pune.
  • Snapdeal – Offers in Delhi and Gurgaon for now.
  • Tradus – Offers in Delhi and NCR for now. Other cities to join the list soon.

Products available

  • Flipkart – All products on Flipkart are eligible for In-a-day delivery service.
  • Amazon – All Fulfilled by Amazon products are eligible. No minimum purchase.
  • Snapdeal – As of now, only some products are eligible for this delivery option and such products are marked with an yellow tag on the website.
  • Tradus – Only on mobiles and tablets.

Cut-off time

  • Flipkart – You’ll have to place the order before 6 pm to receive the product the next day.
  • Amazon – Cut-off time is till midnight for Mumbai and Pune. The cut-off time is 3 pm for other pincodes.
  • Snapdeal – You’ll have to place the order before 1 pm.
  • Tradus – No reports on that.

Logistics used

  • Flipkart – Flipkart has it’s own logistics operation. So, it’s easy for Flipkart to ship the brought immediately.
  • Amazon – Amazon’s recently tied-up with India Post and guaranteed one-day delivery works well for Amazon too.
  • Snapdeal – Uses third party logistics to ship the product.
  • Tradus – Uses third party logistics to ship the product.

Snapdeal and Tradus are in a tough position because they’ll have to work a lot in the back-end with the third party logistics partners to make the delivery on time.

Payment options

  • Flipkart – All payment options are available, including cash on delivery (COD)
  • Amazon – All payment options are available, including COD.
  • Snapdeal – No reports on payment modes. But, my guess is that all payment options should be available.
  • Tradus – All payment options are available, including COD.


  • Flipkart – For COD, additional delivery charge will be collected as per the order, but will be refunded to your Flipkart wallet.
  • Amazon – Automatic refund of the shipping charges if the product is not delivered as promised.

Websites where you can buy iPad mini in India

After iPhone 5, Apple launched its latest tablet in India i.e. iPad Mini and iPad 4 a couple of days back. As expected; the product is out of stock but some websites still have them. Let’s have a look at the websites where you can get your iPad Mini in India and the best price for it. The official price for this tablet is 21,900 INR and you have to pay at least this amount to buy one. You can try coupon codes if you have them but Great Online Shopping Festival coupons are not applicable here.

Websites, Price and Delivery Time:

Flipkart: Its one of the most popular e-commerce website of India. The price tag is same 21,900 but unfortunately this device is currently out of stock for the 16GB model in both the colors. You can go for a 32GB model which is in stock and will be delivered in 2-4 days.


Homeshop18: Search on Google about the online price of iPad mini in India and most of the websites will say that Homeshop18 is giving it for 19,400 INR, well that’s not true, the price is same on this website as well and the product is currently out of stock. Once it’s available, the website will take 5-6 days to deliver it to you. So it will be better if you order it from Flipkart.

Snapdeal: Same official price, but it’s out of stock on this website.

MirchiMart: Product is in stock here and the expected delivery time is 2-4 days. You can also use their EMI option (check the website for more details). This website is not very popular as compared to other Indian e-commerce website. May be that’s the reason why iPad Mini is available but since I have never ordered something from this website so I can’t tell you about the site. If you have ordered something then don’t forget to share your views with us. Price is same 21,900 for the basic model.

Saholic: In stock and the product will be delivered next day for Delhi and will take a couple of days for Mumbai. You can check the delivery time for other cities on their website. EMI option is also available here. Same price tag.

Tradus: In stock, 3-5 days delivery time and it’s a popular website but still I won’t recommend it to you because of the price. You have to pay 25,999 for the basic model, so it’s better to buy a 32GB version from Flipkart than this 16GB model.

Please share your views about these websites or if you have already ordered an iPad online. Drop a comment below for any doubt. 🙂
