JioMart is Reliance’s take on Amazon, Flipkart, and other e-retail channels in the country. Reliance announced JioMart a few months ago, soon after it revealed its deal with tech giant Facebook. After testing the e-commerce retail platform for months now Reliance has finally released JioMart app for Android as well as iPhone users. The JioMart app is now available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

The roll-out of JioMart apps comes shortly after RIL Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani announced the availability of the platform in beta mode in 200 cities across the country. He further said that JioMart was handling a total of 2,50,000 transactions every day since the beginning of the pilot program.

It’s not clear when the JioMart app exactly hit the Play Store, as right now it shows 100-plus downloads. As per the listing, the app’s developer is Jio Platforms. “Get the JioMart App to experience online grocery shopping like never before,” goes the app’s description. “The free online shopping app from JioMart assures you of a great shopping experience with a wide selection of groceries across categories like fresh fruits, vegetables, staples, personal care, beverages, branded foods, snacks, home & kitchen and more with great deals and huge savings,” it adds.

The app is currently delivering in over 200 locations. Though it’s yet not clear which are these cities/areas. Intensifying the online grocery apps war, JioMart is offering free delivery. It also claims to offer products at least 5% below the MRP.

The description of the app shows that the app offers support for multiple payment options including net banking, credit/debit cards, sodexo for food products, ROne loyalty points and even cash on delivery. There’s also a search option. “Browse for your desired products, categories and favorite brands with our easy and robust search functionality,” says the app’s details on Play Store.

Jio claims that most of the products — fruits and vegetables — available in JioMart are sourced directly from farmers.
