Walmart now accepts online delivery orders via WhatsApp in Mexico
Walmart has begun offering grocery delivery via WhatsApp at its Superama stores in Mexico, simply by texting a shopping list.
According to Reuters, customers at Walmart’s Mexican subsidiary can now send their shopping lists to a number run by Walmart, and have their items picked and delivered to them for just 39 pesos (£1.59).
Shoppers can even send a photo of a handwritten shopping list to the number, and can pay using cash or card upon delivery.
A quicker delivery option is also available, costing 49 pesos (£2) for delivery within 90 minutes.
Mexico is the US retail giants largest overseas market, boasting an estate of 2459 stores, 92 of which are Superama stores.
Superama already takes online delivery orders via its website, dedicated app and third-party delivery service Cornershop.
