Frequently Asked Questions

What is Cash on Delivery (COD)?

It is a payment method where you pay for an item in cash when the courier company delivers the item to you.

How does COD work?

You place an order on Bookish Santa after verifying you mobile number. Once your phone number and your order is verified by our team, we process the product from our end and hand it over to our courier partner for delivery. You need to pay the complete amount in cash to the courier once the product is delivered to you. Please note, payment through cheque, draft or any other means will not be acceptable.

The COD option is only available for products that cost between Rs.100 - Rs. 1,500 and locations that fall under the serviceable range of our courier partners.

Why is COD option not available for my location?

Our reach in terms of COD option is limited by the reach of courier companies. Once you enter your pin code while ordering, we will tell you if COD is available at your location.

Why is COD option not available for high value orders?

Courier suppliers have not enabled COD for high value items on our website. In case of a specific requirement, please give us a call at +91-9716182959 or drop a mail at and we'll make sure our team reaches out to you.

What do I do if no one is at home when the courier company attempts delivery?

Courier companies will call you before coming over to deliver the item.

When do I need to pay the COD amount?

The order amount has to be paid in full before receiving the package and signing the delivery sheet. The package can be opened only after the payment is made.


We hope you have a smooth delivery experience with our new service.
