Paytm E-commerce Private Limited (PEPL) today announced that it has already sold nearly 6,000 kg of tomatoes within a single week through ONDC on the Paytm app. With this, Paytm ONDC leads the chart with 60% of the total tomato sales in Delhi NCR on the ONDC network.
Paytm was the first to go live with ONDC and launched Paytm se ONDC on the Paytm app powered by PEPL.
The sale on Paytm ONDC was announced last week through National Cooperative Consumers Federation (NCCF) for users in Delhi-NCR on Paytm ONDC. As per the scheme, users can buy two kilograms of tomatoes at ₹140 per week with free delivery through ONDC on the Paytm app. The prices for tomatoes may fall further as per directions from NCCF. This move was aimed at benefiting the users as retail prices of tomatoes in some cities had crossed ₹200 per kilogram.
Paytm ONDC will continue the sale for another week which will allow customers to order tomatoes at zero delivery fees.
Paytm E-Commerce Private Limited Spokesperson said, “As the most preferred buyer app for ONDC, our mission is to democratise e-commerce in India and provide our customers an unmatched online shopping experience. Aligned with the same, we are thrilled to witness such a massive response from our customers for tomato sales on Paytm se ONDC.”
