Swiggy has teamed up with Amazon India to add Amazon Pay as a payment option for its users. This means that Swiggy users can pay for the food that they order with their Amazon Pay wallet. According to the announcements, users can take benefit of a number of offers, weekend deals, and cash back deals that will be offered on Amazon Pay. The announcement claims that this new payment offer will enable fast and seamless checkouts for Swiggy users. This will also allow Amazon India users who already have a Swiggy account, to make use of their Amazon Pay account outside the Amazon services eco-system.
With this partnership, Amazon is hoping that it can increase the adoption of digital payments across the country. The company claimed that it has announced a number of key partnerships to increase the services where Amazon users can user their Amazon Pay wallet. The report points that the company has “noted a significant increase” when it came to Amazon Pay activity on weekends in the form of food, travel, and ticket booking.
