Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently announced the demonetisation of 500 and 1000 rupees notes. Following which, numerous e-commerce websites have decided to either stop the Cash On Delivery (CoD) option all together or limit it to orders below a certain value. This has caused many to face inconvenience as majority of the online shoppers prefer CoD.

Now Snapdeal has announced a new payment option called ‘Wallet on Delivery’ to pay for items at the time of delivery through FreeCharge. This will allow users to pay only when the package is delivered. Buyers will receive a PIN to use in their FreeCharge app which, after confirmation, will charge you for the services.

 

‘The launch of Wallet on Delivery is an absolute need of the hour for consumers. This new feature by FreeCharge shortly after the announcement of the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes demonstrates our speed of execution in ensuring consumers needs are met in real time,’ said Kunal Bahl, founder and CEO of Snapdeal, according to a report by NDTVGadgets.

The FreeCharge wallet can also be used by users to pay for utilities, cab rides via Meru, online recharges, at certain offline merchants as well as to purchase items from Snapdeal.
