Amazon India has stopped accepting cash—the most popular mode of payment—for transactions to encourage contactless deliveries during the 21-day lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19.
“New ordering is available only on essential products through pre-paid payment methods,” the online retailer said on its website.
The move helps delivery partners and customers stay safe by eliminating avoidable contact. It also makes the logistics process faster at a time when e-commerce companies are facing troubles in getting their frontline staff back to work.
