Wallet on Delivery from ​Snapdeal and FreeCharge enables payment on delivery


Snapdeal has launched Wallet on Delivery (WoD), which allow users to pay on delivery by using their FreeCharge wallet. Users can make payment for the item they have ordered after it is delivered.

The WoD feature from Snapdeal comes following the latest demonetization move from the Government of India under which Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes are banned. The WoD service will be available starting November 10, 2016 and in a progressive roll-out, and will cover Snapdeal and FreeCharge users across the country over the next few weeks.

Kunal Bahl, CEO & Co-founder of Snapdeal said,

The launch of Wallet on Delivery is an absolute need of the hour for consumers. More than a year ago, we had made a strategic decision to build India’s best digital payments platform to offer the fastest and most efficient payments experience in the country. The launch of this new feature by FreeCharge shortly after the announcement of the demonetization of Rs.500 and Rs.1000 currency notes demonstrates our speed of execution in ensuring consumers’ needs are met in real time. We are delighted to continue our contribution to the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision to build a cashless society.

The WoD feature comes at a time when a large number of customers are facing issues with their Cash on Delivery (CoD) orders. Amazon India has disabled CoD while Flipkart and Snapdeal have restricted orders up to Rs. 2000.

[Update] – Paytm and MobiKwik have also started their respective wallet on delivery services.
