Blinkit launches paper print delivery service: how does it work, where is it available?


Online grocery delivery platform Grofers was acquired by Zomato last month. Last year, Grofers rebranded itself as Blinkit, to solidify its commitment to delivering items in less time. Essentially, the platform is one of the country’s fast delivery services, like Swiggy Instamart. Now, Blinkit has launched a new print delivery service to select locations across the country.

Jitesh Goel, Product Manager at Blinkit, writes in a LinkedIn post: “At Blinkit we now print in minutes in a few areas. I’ve never had a printer at home and get it in a Internet cafe, library, neighbors or offices has always been cumbersome, especially when needed as deadlines approach.This should be really useful, especially at the rates available.

As part of the new service, Blinkit is offering home printouts for those without a printer. The platform charges Rs. 9 a page for colorless prints and Rs. 19 a page for color copies. Moreover, the platform also takes Rs. 25 delivery fee for each order.
