A few days after Facebook picked up a 9.99% stake in Jio Platform Ltd, JioMart goes live in three cities within Mumbai. JioMart is Reliance’s own grocery delivery service.
Initially, JioMart services will be available in three cities, Navi Mumbai, Thane and Kalyan. All the processes like ordering, tracking, billing, etc are done through Facebook-owned WhatsApp itself.
If you are from any of the three aforementioned cities, then you can use JioMart services by following the steps below.
First of all, you need to save the JioMart WhatsApp number in your contacts list. The number is 8850008000. After saving the number, just send a message and JioMart will send you a link back. The link will be valid for 30 minutes only.
On that page, you need to provide information like your name, number, address, etc and it will take you to the list of all products. Now select the products that you need to buy and you could place an order from there itself. You can track your order from the same JioMart WhatsApp chat.
As of now, home delivery of the products is not available yet. You will have to visit the store to grab your products. Also, note that only Cash payment option is available right now.
Reliance will also sell some private labeled brand products in names such as Best Farms, Good Life, Masti Oye, Kaffe, Enzo, Mopz, Expelz, and Home One.
The services are only available in Mumbai as of now. It will be further expanded to other cities soon after the pandemic crisis is gone. You can head over to this page and pre-register on the website and users who do pre-registration get benefits worth Rs. 3,000.
