Flipkart has rolled out a new feature upgrade to its mobile app. The Flipkart Mobile Recharge App option lets you recharge on Flipkart itself. It also offers cashbacks if payment is done using PhonePe UPI.
Why Recharge on Flipkart?
This move comes largely to give Amazon a solid competition. Amazon introduced the recharge option a long time ago. The option is really convenient for those who regularly use Amazon. It also offers a lot of cashback options. Flipkart has always tried to overshadow Amazon. In the recent stint, Flipkart launched its own sale to undermine the Amazon Prime Day Sale.
Flipkart Mobile Recharge App benefits
The Recharge on Flipkart currently only serves prepaid recharges. The new update uses Flipkart-owned PhonePe to carry out transactions. Flipkart Recharge has a launch offer too. For the first prepaid recharge, you will get a cashback of 25% using the PhonePe UPI. There is also a cashback offer on MobiKwik. The cashback is limited to Rs 50 and only till July 31, but its still a great deal.
While Amazon may have been providing recharges for a long time, p still has a relatively wider reach in that aspect. Inclusion of PhonePe into Flipkart Mobile Recharge App option will definitely help it take over Amazon.
Also note, Flipkart has also placed the ‘Travel by Flipkart’ option in its app. The partnership with MakeMyTrip makes flight bookings on the Flipkart app possible.
Flipkart is moving towards a good direction with Recharge on Flipkart. We certainly hope to see more competition as it is most beneficial for us, the consumers.
