NEW DELHI: E-Commerce major Snapdeal will allow its users across 200 cities to pay through their credit and debit cards when they opt for pay-on-delivery option.
“The solution has been developed in partnership with GoJavas. Now customers can select the pay by card on delivery option, just like they would for COD. We are rolling this out in 120 cities,” Snapdeal vice-president operations Ashish Chitravanshi told PTI.
In the next few months, the facility will be available to customers across 200 cities, he added.
The service is already available across metros and cities like Agra, Ahmedabad, Ajmer, Aligarh, Bareilly, Chandigarh, Darjeeling, Gorakhpur, Hisar, Kanyakumari and Ooty.
“Many times, customers complained about lack of change or not having enough cash handy, asking the delivery boys to come at a later time. We expect this facility to help them in this regard,” he said.
Though he declined to comment on the volume of shipment the company handles on an average, its co-founder and COO Rohit Bansal said the company is looking at a 10X growth in the next 2-3 years, which will translate into delivery of about 80-100 million packages a month.
