We also found that Flipkart and Snapdeal also stopped delivering to Chennai. Even though there are no official announcement by these shopping websites, we found that they are also not delivering to Chennai.
Snapdeal shows the following message when we tried the check pin code option
Item not available at this location, please try another pincode
While Flipkart says
Not Available with any Seller at 600001
We have tried different pincodes all gave the same result. Hope this will be resolved soon.
If you have any updates on this subject please update us.
Here is what Ashwin says
All three apps (Amazon, Flipkart, Snapddeal) have been continuously spamming me with notifications about offers, and also through emails. But none of the websites allow me to place any order. I get they can’t service us during this time (despite no rains for a week). Can’t they at least use geo location/pin code in the accounts/orders to stop sending me these offers.
Thank you Ashwin for the information.
