Online Shopping and Delivery in Orissa

Online shopping in India has boomed over the recent years and there has been lot of changes in online shopping in Orissa and delivery to towns and villages of the state. There has been great improvement in terms of shipment policies and shipping/delivery options. Every corner of Odisha has been able to purchase goods online and get it delivered at their door steps.


Problems with Shipping to Odisha and Delivery

Orissa and West Bengal in particular had a very unorganized tax laws that caused a lot of problem for courier companies shipping items purchased online. The state departments used to ask for documentation and certain form-50 even when the items were purchased for personal use. Hence, courier companies were reluctant to accept delivery to places inside Odisha.

Further, many small towns and villages lacked good courier services and time to deliver was uncertain.

Shipping to Odisha has become more reliable

With competitive ecommerce initiatives by Flipkart, Amazon and other players, the delivery system has improved to a stage you can rely on. Lot of courier companies have opened delivery centers in small towns and villages as online shopping is catching up everywhere. Here’s some info regarding delivery to places in Odisha by major online shopping sites:

eBay India delivery to Odisha

eBay sellers have been sending items to Odisha on their own discretion. Some used to notify in their product listing page that they would not ship to Orissa state. However, with modernization of goods delivery laws, those cases have reduced to almost zero. You can go ahead and check the delivery options in the product page. Enter your PIN code and you will see the delivery options/time. Some sellers do mention they use only certain courier companies and you have to make sure that Courier Company is there in your locality. Or, arrange for delivery at a friend/relative’s address in nearby town.

Amazon India shipping to Odisha

Amazon has changed the game altogether by making a contract with India Post for delivery of goods purchased online. Now, almost everything on Amazon India website can be shipped to any part of India. Just enter your PINCODE and you will see a delivery estimate to your home. Usually this estimate is 3-4 days for towns like Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Sambalpur, Rourkela etc. and 7-10 days for places where there’s no proper courier service and shipping is made via India Post. Don’t worry, whatever may the shipment method be, there will be proper tracking made available to you. In fact, India Post’s tracking has been great!

Flipkart and Odisha Delivery

Flipkart does ship to many places in Odisha. However, the coverage is less. In fact, it again depends on where the sellers are able to deliver. For ordering a laptop, we noticed a certain seller on Flipkart did not accept any pin code other than Bhubaneswar.

Having said that, you can be sure of finding a great shopping deal online and order the item to be delivered your doorstep. Choose a seller that accepts your PINCODE and you will receive the items at the comfort of your home. Do let’s know your experience with online shopping in Odisha!

    1. You can enter your pincode on the page and snapdeal wllshow you if they deliver to the pincode. I think most of the products on snapdeal can be delivered to Bhubaneswar but not to many other places in odisha. if that’s the case, try ordering the phone to someone’s address in Bhubaneswar and go and collect it from them.
