Certainly, there are several grocery companies that sell their products through various online portals. And now for the first time, a FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) company has made a grand entry into the market of e-commerce in India. Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages Pvt. Ltd, one of the country’s leading food and beverage companies, has come up with an exclusive online portal to sell its products in the market. This new service has been named as Coke2Home.com. It’s a great online web store from where you can conveniently order any of the Coca Cola products and get them delivered directly to your home.
The list of products that you can order online via Coke2Home.com include: Coca-Cola, Sprite, Diet Coke, Thumps Up, Fanta, Kinley Soda, Limca, Schweppes Tonic Water, Minute Maid Nimbu Fresh, Minute Maid Pulpy Orange, Maaza, Minute Maid range of fruit flavoured drinks, Minute Maid 100% Juices (Apple, Grapes, Orange and Mixed Fruit), and Bonaqua. To start using this service, first you’ll have to register on the site. For this, all you have to do is provide some mandatory personal information like name, email id, mobile number, name of the city, address, and date of birth. Once registered, you can easily login to the site using your mobile number and password anytime, anywhere.
According to the website, Coca Cola would offer the home delivery facility only for those orders that exceeds Rs. 300. Plus, the company claims that the products will be delivered on the same day only if the customer places an order before 12 noon. Interestingly, apart from individual orders, the website also permits businesses to place bulk orders of Coco Cola products. At Coke2Home.com, individual shoppers can easily purchase the products through the virtual shelves but for placing bulk orders or monthly based orders, one must fill out a form available on the site so as to connect with the company representatives. You’ll be asked to provide your company name, address and number of employees. However, it’s unclear whether the customer would get any discount on bulk orders or not.
Coke2Home.com offers Cash On Delivery option for the customers, and also there are no extra delivery charges for the same. Plus, the website features a tracking system, which allows you to track the status of your order using the order number.
As of now, the service of the first online store of Coca Cola is available only in Ahmedabad, but the company plans to start the same in many other Indian cities as well. Moreover, Coco Cola has even built and successfully launched a mobile version of the site which can be accessed at m.coke2home.com. Otherwise, the website also offers a QR code. As soon as you scan this code, you’ll be automatically re-directed to the mobile version of the site on your mobile browser.
