Had enough of spending a large part of yout time and energy scouting your city for an ATM that dispenses cash? Feeling the crunch that has followed demonetization? Worry not. There’s good news if you live in Mumbai, Gurugram or Bengaluru. Grofers has got you covered! The folks at this gurugram-based hyperlocal grocery delivery startup have partnered with YES Bank, in a move which will allow Grofers customers to get currency notes delivered to their doorstep along with their grocery order for up to INR 2,000 through YES Bank PoS machines.
Talking about the partnership, Ashneer Grover, Chief Financial Officer, Grofers said, “While we are delivering daily essentials such as groceries and fruits & vegetables without cash; we cannot totally eliminate the need of currency notes as people sometimes require them for other reasons. This is our humble attempt to help our customers. Grofers delivery executives will carry PoS machines where customers can swipe and get cash within the comfort of their homes.”
Cha-ching. Cash Is Now A Swipe Away
Now you can ditch the long queues at the bank or the ATM. Just place your grocery order on the Grofers website, and you will receive the option to request for delivery of cash. You can place this request via a special code that you will be provided with. It’s as simple as that.
To bring cash to you, Grofersdelivery executives will carry a PoS machine powered by YES Bank. All you have to do is swipe your debit card at this machine and receive cash. However, the same ATM rules for withdrawal apply – you will only be able to swipe for an amount up to INR 2000.
In order to help customers in other cities as well, the team at Grofers is hoping to extend this service to their customers in other cities around India as well.
