Shipping Policy

Delivery charges

Delivery charge varies for each item or group of items. We incur relatively higher shipping costs on low-value items. In such cases, charging a nominal delivery charge helps them offset logistics costs. The delivery charge may be waived off if you shop with them for a minimum predefined value.

Hidden costs

There are zero hidden charges when you make a purchase on the website [http://www.thefineworld.com] of Affordable IT Solutions Pvt. Ltd. List prices are final and all-inclusive. The price you see on the product page is exactly what you would pay.

Delivery charges are not hidden charges and are charged (if at all) extra depending on our Shipping and Delivery Policy.
