After launching Flipkart First,  Flipkart has announced the launch of Scheduled Delivery for its customers. Scheduled Delivery enables customers choose a specific date and time for delivery of their Flipkart order. Customers can choose delivery slots as early as the next day.Flipkart Native APp

This service, which is free of cost for Flipkart customers, will initially be available for the large appliances category and will get extended to other select categories with time.  Flipkart’s scheduled delivery is currently available in Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata and will be extended in other cities soon.

Plus, Flipkart will soon be offering its customers installation service along with delivery during the pre-selected slots.

Given that quite a few brands have taken a tough stand against online players, Flipkart wants to do the entire 360 degree of commerce.
