Taking its online to offline program steps ahead, Paytm has announced to offer same day delivery on products in 20 cities. The company has begun with the deliveries with locally based commerce and will further add more categories to it.
Currently, the same day delivery is available on large appliances, mobiles and is already active on the platform. Over INR 20 crore worth of orders in a month are shipped the same day to the customers.
Sellers themselves provide the delivery and installation service while Paytm enables them by training on how to manage online customer expectations and experience.
Paytm is aiming to add 10,000 more sellers in 50 top cities to spread the reach of O2O commerce further.
Sudhanshu Gupta, Vice President - Paytm said, “Paytm is the pioneer of O2O and with same day delivery and installation managed by sellers being added to the arsenal we are able to cover a critical category of large appliances which cannot be shipped by traditional warehousing models.”
