What is Jio mart ?
JioMart is the e-commerce market place that connects retailers with customers. Just like Amazon Prime Now and Grofers, Jio Mart will not maintain any warehouses but will allow local retailers and Kirana merchants to list their products on the portal and sell them to the customers. Jio will take care of the operations involved in this process which include logistics, payments, etc. Jio Mart aims to sell over 50,000 grocery products and will offer benefits that include
Free home delivery on no minimum order value
No questions asked return process
Express delivery promise
In the initial stages, Jio Mart will house products like daily staples, soaps, shampoos, and other household items which will give tough competition to players like Amazon and Grofers.
JioMart will serve as a platform for offline retailers to cater to customers in their locality who want to buy groceries online. At the RIL’s (Reliance Industries Limited) 42nd annual general meeting (AGM), Ambani said that, through the latest venture, the company is projected to connect three crore offline retailers with over 20 crores households in the country.
JioMart is the brainchild of Mukesh Ambani, where he wants to dominate the local kirana space. This person is so mad about disruption that he wants to dominate every visible business space. And he can do this because of money and muscle power.
Through Jiomart Reliance wants to leverage the customer base of Jio and create a platform to bring local Kirana stores under it and serve customers. It is an online to offline business model where customer place order online and delivery happens through an offline shop.
Jio has partnered with Facebook and that helped Jio to utilize the WhatsApp network to launch Jiomart. It is currently rolled out in phases and started in some area in Mumbai.
