Well, it was much anticipated. When Reliance’s Jio-Facebook deal occurred a week ago, experts knew this would be going to happen. And here we are, now you can purchase items from your local kiryana store via JioMart on Whatsapp.
All you have to do is add JioMart’s WhatsApp number 88500 08000 on your phone, and send a text message “Hi”. JioMart will send you a link using which you can shop online from local kiryana stores.
Once you click the link, you have to fill your address, phone number, and other details. You can shop from the available catalog of products.
Once your order is placed, you will get a notification. And once your kiryana store has packed and billed the order, you will receive a notification to pick your order from the nearest JioMart kiryana store.
The only payment option available is cash on delivery. For now, you have to collect your order by yourself and pay via cash at the kiryana store.
Currently, this service is available in Mumbai suburbs such as Navi Mumbai, Thane, and Kalyan.
Experts suggest that the current form of the service is a pilot. Reliance will provide the facility of home delivery and online payment soon.
Well, it seems indeed local is the new global business plan as said by Paytm CEO, Vijay Shekhar a few days ago.
