Few days after the Facebooks-Reliance deal JioMart is now live on Whatsapp. It is an online venture of these companies. With the help of this service, people will be able to order essential goods from JioMart using WhatsApp. Initially, there are some local vendors that are part of this project and will help JioMart to fulfill the orders. JioMart is basically a concept of placing your order online and paying for it at the store. So you have to first place your order to the nearest store and when your order is ready you have to go and pick it up from there. Amid the lockdown situation throughout the country, this service can turn out to be a big relief for people.
For now, this service is available in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane, and Kalyan but soon they will launch it in different parts of the country. According to an estimate, there are nearly 400 million WhatsApp users in India. Reliance Jio wants to create a market using these users and by collaborating with the local vendors
