Earlier the CEO of Peppertap had announced that they are open to acquisitions. And as a latest development, Delhi-based PepperTap, a leading on-demand grocery delivery service company has acquired Jiffstore, a grocery online delivery solution company based in Bengaluru.
Jiffstore is among the first m-commerce platforms to affordably enable small shop owners to build trusted relationships and to increase sales with their customers. Using an iOS or Android app, consumers can browse store items, make orders, and optionally have them delivered. The shop owner uses an Android app to interact with customers, manage inventory and other functions. The user interface is simple and easy-to-use, making consumer and merchant adoption very quick. Jiffstore was incepted in October 2013 at Startup Village Kochi and nurtured there in the first couple of months after which it moved out to Bengaluru where it went on to partner 120 supermarkets and get 100,000 registered users.
After the acquisition in an undisclosed amount of cash and stock deal, the JiffStore’s 40-strong team will join PepperTap’s Bangalore office and its headquarters in Gurgaon.
