Free app for online shopping

Flipkart is India’s biggest online store. It’s an online marketplace like Amazon or eBay, where you can buy everything you need for day-to-day living. The range of available products includes grocery, clothes, computers, and even domestic and international flights.

You can use the Flipkart site or the app to order from anywhere in the world, but Flipkart only delivers within India.

Can Flipkart be trusted?

According to their privacy policy, the company is very up-front about how your data is used.

In that respect, they’re probably not doing anything different from what firms like Amazon are doing. Whatever company it is, ultimately, you should read their privacy policy and decide if you’re comfortable with how they handle your data.

Payment processes are secure, and one of the payment options for your online shopping is cash on delivery. What is more secure than that?

Can I compare products in Flipkart?

Yes. You can compare up to four products at a time.

Even when you’re comparing items within a specific category, you can’t compare everything. If Flipkart thinks that the product you’re trying to add to the comparison list is too different, it simply won’t let you add it.

Does Flipkart offer free delivery?

Yes, on some products.

Flipkart tags some products as ‘F-Assured’, which indicates that they have undergone six quality checks and will be delivered within 2-4 business days. Delivery is free on ‘F-Assured’ products over 500 Indian Rupees.

What is Flipkart SmartBuy?

Flipkart offers the SmartBuy range of products to supply the ideal balance of quality and price.

They work alongside domestic and international manufacturers to ensure that items are produced to Flipkart’s own specifications. The products are then subject to another quality check when they arrive at Flipkart’s warehouses.

Which is better – Amazon or Flipkart?

For the international market, Amazon is a better option, as they deliver worldwide. They offer a similar range of products, but their general business model is more expansive.

Amazon has subscription options that incorporate added services, while Flipkart is essentially a vast online supermarket.

Our take

If you use Microsoft’s new Edge browser, you can install the site as a web app, so you get the full website experience but with the convenience of an application.

Should you download it?

Yes. Although the Flipkart shopping app merely replicates the site, so there’s also no compelling reason to download it. Conversely, there’s also no reason not to.

Highs

  • App provides full functionality of the Flipkart site
  • Works extremely smoothly - a pleasure to use
  • App can be used to place orders from anywhere in the world

Lows

  • App isn’t necessary on desktop, as it simply replicates the website
