Reliance began testing JioMart, an e-commerce platform that was in parts of Maharashtra last month. The company has officially launched JioMart in almost all regions in the country. Currently, JioMart is available as a web version, but the mobile version is expected to be available very soon. No official word from Reliance yet.
To buy groceries and daily essentials from JioMart, you must first check whether the service is available in your area and by entering your PIN code. We checked availability in Mumbai, Noida, Delhi, and Kolkata and the service was available in all areas. The service is available in almost all areas and the rest will be available soon.
To start shopping with JioMart, you will go to jiomart.com on the web browser and the page will appear. Jio claims that JioMart offers all products below MRP at 5 percent. Interestingly, the platform further claims that all the products listed are sourced directly from registered farmers. With JioMart, the company wants to sell its products and promote its business to farmers online who were affected due to the coronavirus epidemic.
To sign up with JioMart you will go to the official website and sign up> enter your mobile number> enter the OTP received on your phone number within the allotted time. It’s as simple as that. After entering the details you can start shopping.
Despite being a new e-commerce platform, JioMart offers products across multiple categories including fruits, dairy, staples, snacks, personal care, home care, and baby care. JioMart is also selling face masks, a product that is currently in crisis.
After adding the products on the head option in the cart by tapping on adding products to the cart and if you don’t remember anything, recheck. Then click on proceed. JioMart claims that the order will be placed in just two days. “We will try to place your order in the next two days, however, it may be delayed further due to the current surge in orders. Our teams will contact you regarding your order. “
As far as payment options are concerned, JioMart allows customers to make payments through debit/credit cards of almost all banks, Paytm, JioMoney, PhonePe, UPI, Mobikwik. It is also giving cash on delivery options that many competitors have disabled due to contactless delivery. There is no option for payment through WhatsApp or booking orders through WhatsApp. Overall, the web version of JioMart looks very clean and provides a great shopping experience.
Undoubtedly, with JioMart, Reliance wants to take the likes of other platforms in this space including Amazon, Flipkart, BigBasket, Grofers, and now Swiggy and Zomato.
