FreeCharge ties up with Housejoy
FreeCharge and Housejoy have entered into partnership. The partnership will enable convenient e-wallet payments using FreeCharge on the Housejoy web and app platforms. Currently, FreeCharge customers can also book such services across platforms like UrbanClap, Zimmber, Wassup and DriveU.
Start-ups in the online services landscape are constantly trying to organize the highly unorganized service sectors such as plumbing, electrical works, house maintenance, laundry services, etc. The increased adoption of such platforms has led FreeCharge to associate with companies in the home services category to enable the consumers not just to order home services online at their convenience but also will give them access to secure and easy one click access to payments for such services.
Sudeep Tandon, CBO, FreeCharge, said, “Our partnership with Housejoy stems from the preferences of the present-day metro customers who seek the comfort and ease of getting things done on the move. With the partnership, we provide our customers another avenue for digital payments which they encounter in their daily life and hope to give the vision of a less cash India a small thrust through this partnership. We are extremely positive that the association will bring in positive results for both the firms and enhance the payments experience of Housejoy customers.”
Through the tie-up with Housejoy, FreeCharge aims to cater to more than 1 million customers across five major cities in India – Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad. Consumers can now book services ranging from maintenance and home repairs to high-quality plumbing, electrical services, home cleaning and computer repairs on the Housejoy App and select FreeCharge as a payment option to make payment for the services.
