Gurugram-based startup Zippee helps 100+ D2C businesses like Epigamia, Anveshan, Clinikally, & The Face Shop provide Same-Day Deliveries to their customers across India. Brands connect their website to the Zippee platform in just a few clicks & can kickstart same-day deliveries across India in less than 7 days.
