After the customer has filled their shopping cart and shared delivery address details, They now sit and wait for the seller to respond. Most of the sellers respond within an hour other in the day and some wait to the next day to fulfill the orders.
After confirming the quantities and quality of their order, they agree with the delivery team on expected delivery time and locations. Upon delivery of the orders, the customer is required to make the payment after viewing the product.
