Reliance has rolled out the official mobile apps for JioMart. So far, the e-commerce platform had been available to consumers through an official website. The official apps can be downloaded through Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
The roll-out of JioMart apps comes shortly after RIL Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani announced the availability of the platform in beta mode in 200 cities across the country. He further said that JioMart was handling a total of 2,50,000 transactions every day since the beginning of the pilot programme.
“JioMart is now focused on scaling its geographical reach and delivery capabilities. JioMart is obsessed with providing convenience and superior shopping experience to consumers. In addition to grocery, we will expand JioMart to cover electronics, fashion, pharmaceutical and healthcare in the days ahead. In the coming years, we will cover many more cities, serve many more customers across India, and expand to many more categories,” he said in his speech at the company’s 43rd AGM.
Ambani said that JioMart and WhatsApp will be working closely to create “growth and opportunities” for small merchants and kirana shops.
What is JioMart?
JioMart is Reliance’s latest foray into the e-commerce space. The platform aims to help customers connect with the local kirana stores in their areas. As said earlier, it also leverages WhatsApp for easier communication between the customer and seller.
Just like several other e-commerce platforms, customers can avail benefits such as free home delivery and no minimum order value. It supports multiple payment options such as Net Banking, Credit/Debit Cards, and Sodexo for food products, among others. You do not need to be a Jio customer to get started with JioMart.
