In this article, we are going to be covering Whatsapp Shopping which became available in India after a collaboration between Meta and Jio Platforms.
Meta and Jio Platforms today announced the debut of the first-ever end-to-end shopping experience on WhatsApp, allowing customers to purchase from JioMart directly from their WhatsApp chat. JioMart on WhatsApp, a worldwide first, will allow customers in India, including those who have never shopped online before, to effortlessly explore JioMart’s entire food inventory, add goods to basket, and finish the purchase – all without leaving the WhatsApp chat.
Whatsapp Shopping will drive economic growth in India
Reliance Industries Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani stated:
“Our vision is to propel India as the world’s leading digital society. When Jio platforms and Meta announced our partnership in 2020, Mark and I shared a vision of bringing more people and businesses online and creating truly innovative solutions that will add convenience to the daily lives of every Indian. One example of an innovative customer experience that we are proud of developing is the first ever end-to-end shopping experience with JioMart on WhatsApp. The JioMart on WhatsApp experience furthers our commitment of enabling a simple and convenient way of online shopping to millions of Indians.”
The launch is part of Meta and Jio Platforms’ strategic cooperation to accelerate India’s digital transformation and give individuals and companies of all sizes new ways to interact and drive economic growth in the country. The JioMart on WhatsApp experience will transform the way millions of companies communicate with their customers throughout the country, while also delivering unrivaled ease and convenience to people’s buying experiences.
