Variable Courier Delivery Dates

Question

We do not mention to the buyer how long it will take for delivery. Is it necessary to mention this?

For our cash buyers of kitabs we do not always mention the name of the courier company. The buyer pays for the books and the courier cost upfront (before we dispatch the order). The invoice requesting payment merely states delivery charge. We always find out the delivery address from the buyer so they are aware that it is a door-to-door service. Is it necessary to mention the name of the courier company? 

Answer

The seller will be regarded to be appointed by the customer as a representative to hire a courier company on his behalf. Thus, any un-specifications will not affect its validity. All that is required is that the books reach the customer.

It is not necessary to mention the name of the courier company to the customer.
