Thiruvananthapuram, NFAPost: Kerala’s first hyper-local delivery startup Errando has launched WhatsApp API-powered delivery service. Customers can now use their WhatsApp to place orders for food, stationary, medicine, grocery, pick and drop or any errand services. A customer can start availing this service by sending a ‘Hello’ message to 7994834834.

Respective automated reply messages will prompt and guide the customer in placing the order with a couple of messages.

Delivery/pick-up addresses can be shared easily by either typing the location name or using WhatsApp location search functionality. Customers can make payment using auto-generated payment links and also receive updates of the order in the same chat window.
