At Shilpi Handicrafts, our aim is to ship our products in a quick, safe and inexpensive manner.
Will I be charged for Octroi or Entry taxes in case of domestic shipping?
All of Shilpi Handicrafts orders are shipped within India from our warehouse in Jaipur, India, to your provided shipping address. Due to the nature of interstate shipping, you may have to pay additional duties and taxes which are levied once a shipment reaches your state. The majority of orders will not have to pay any additional fees. However, we are unable to calculate when and how much these infrequent duty charges will be levied. In the case where additional duties or taxes are assessed, customer will be responsible for paying these additional fees. To make your shopping experience as seamless as possible, we have arranged with our shipping partners to clear your goods for you and deliver them to your doorstep. If you are presented with an invoice/receipt from our shipping partner for any duties and taxes, you will have to pay them directly at the time of delivery.
How long will it take to receive my order?
In case of domestic shipping i.e shipping within India it will take approximately 6-8 business days. We make every effort to process your order as quickly as possible. We usually require 5 working days to process your order. However if the quantities ordered are more than 5 pieces per product per style, or in case the item ordered is under production it may take longer to process the order. In such cases we keep you posted through email. our domestic orders are shipped via various domestic shipping partners which provide delivery within 6-8 business days.

Why was my package undeliverable?
In case of domestic shipping the shipping company will attempt delivery 3 times at the delivery address specified by you in the order, before they contact us that your package is not deliverable. If you have not received the package, you can track the package through the Order Tracking facility. If the package status is shown as undeliverable please call the shipping company at their local number and quote your tracking number to trace your package.
Here are some reasons why your package may be determined undeliverable.
Incorrect Address: Shilpi Handicrafts does not take responsibility if the delivery address provided by you is incorrect or outdated. If a package is returned to us because the address is incorrect or outdated we will consider the order status as closed, and no refund will be issued. Please carefully check to make sure that you have supplied a current and correct shipping address.
Failed Delivery Attempts: In case of domestic deliveries the shipping company will make three attempts to deliver your package. If you are generally not home during delivery hours, please use a shipping address where someone will be available to sign for the package. If the driver deems it necessary to obtain a signature and has made three delivery attempts, then the package is returned to us as undeliverable. If the package status is shown as undeliverable please call the shipping company’s customer service at their local number and quote your tracking number to trace your package.
Refused by Recipient: If you are sending a gift to someone and they refuse to accept the package because they think it is being sent to them in error, then the package will be returned to us as undeliverable. By informing your gift recipient that they should expect a package you will help us ensure that they receive your gift.
