Now you can order ration through WhatsApp, know how
Indians can now use WhatsApp to order groceries from JioMart through a new "tap and chat" option. This is going to give a tough challenge to Amazon and Flipkart. According to JioMart users who have posted WhatsApp shopping invites with 90-second tutorials and catalogues, the delivery is free and there is no minimum order value.
What can you order
Fruits, vegetables, cereals, toothpaste and cooking staples like cottage cheese and chickpea flour are available. Customers can fill their shopping basket within the app and pay either through JioMart or in cash at the time of receiving the order.
This will benefit Jiomart
The move comes 19 months after Meta Platforms Inc., formerly known as Facebook Inc., invested nearly $6 billion in Reliance's Jio Platforms unit. Jio is going to benefit the most from this partnership because doing so can increase the sales of JioMart. WhatsApp has about 53 million users in the country and Jio has 425 million users.
How to order
After going to the app, you have to click on WhatsApp Tap and Chat. There you will get a complete list of groceries. You will be able to list orders only on WhatsApp. After this, payment can be made through online payment or through cash on delivery.
