ePayLater has partnered with Zipgrid to unveil ZipMart in a bid to ensure seamless last-mile logistics of essential commodities. The initiative intends to assist selected residential societies with online ordering while ensuring contactless delivery necessary for curtailing the pandemic. The service is now operational and available to all residential societies registered with Zipgrid in Mumbai and NCR.
ZipMart offers an assorted list of edibles and other essential items available at ePayLater’s partnering stores. The collaborative commerce activities of ePayLater and Zipgrid permits consumers to place an order from their home while enabling digital payments to minimise the risk of contagion.
A user of a Zipgrid-registered housing society/building will be able to place the grocery orders using ePayLater’s online portal integrated on the Zipgrid app, under the ZipMart tab. The service is available on both Android and iOS platforms. Once placed, the order will be delivered at the doorstep of the consumer by an executive while adhering to all social distancing norms mandated by the government.
The partnership intends to ease the buying process for consumers without risking their health and safety amidst the lockdown. The joint initiative not only facilitates an uninterrupted supply of essentials but also adheres to the government’s guidelines in ensuring contactless and doorstep delivery.
Uday Somayajula, Co-Founder, ePayLater said, “As India grapples with COVID-19, it is necessary to deliver essentials to buyers at their homes. We are happy to associate with Zipgrid, and our collective aim is to ensure people remain indoors and order essentials from the safety and comfort of their homes. We have embarked on this collaboration to empower communities and contribute to the greater cause of curbing this contagion.”
Jaydip Popat, Co-Founder, Zipgrid shared, “These are testing times and we wish to ease the process of lockdown-living for everyone, in our capacity. The partnership between ePayLater and Zipgrid is a bold step in that direction which utilises our collective commerce offering to service a building as a whole while being able to provide a large assortment and guaranteed delivery”
