Fast-fashion retailer Zara has announced it will start online sales in India from October 4, through its website, and mobile application.
This is part of the company's steady expansion of the integrated offline-online store model across the globe where parent Inditex Group does business. Zara.com/in will offer the full range of articles that the brand currently offers in its stores at the country and at the same prices, a statement said.
Home delivery will be completed within two to four working days in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai. It will take 5-8 working days in the rest of the country, the spokesperson said. Standard deliveries will be charged at Rs 290, with free delivery on purchases over Rs 4,000. Deliveries at stores will be made within 3-5 working days and will be free, the company clarified.
For all these operations, Zara is working with a warehouse located in Haryana, close to New Delhi, which is employing 50 people, it added. Payments can be made using all the standard e-commerce payment methods such as PayPal plus all major credit cards.
