Selling fee

Selling fee is a fee we charge every time you sell a product on The Comic Book Store. It is a flat percentage of the total sale price. 12% for products below 1000 & 15% for products equal to or above 1000.


Shipping fee

Shipping fee is the fee charged by the logistics provider and is calculated by measuring the actual weight, volumetric weight (length x breadth x height / 5000), and the total distance (Local, Regional or National). It starts from ₹ 35 per 500 grams and varies by different factors stated above.

Cash on Delivery – If a customer chooses Cash on Delivery (COD) during checkout, then standard COD charges apply on the shipping fee.
Actual weight / Volumetric weight (whichever is higher) + Distance (Local, Regional or National) + COD charges = Total Shipping Fee
COD orders are not very different from pre-paid orders except for the mode of payment. There is no loss to the seller as the cost of the product and the way you receive your payment remains the same.
For the safety of the seller, Cash on Delivery is not allowed for orders or products above ₹2500.
