For the First Time Ever, Buy Your OnePlus X Straight from the Ola App
Ola, India’s most popular mobile app for personal transportation and OnePlus, a fast growing technology startup, today announced a first-of-its-kind partnership in India, giving users an opportunity to buy the latest smartphone OnePlus X, on-demand, straight from the Ola app. This is the first ever instance in India where consumers can purchase the smartphone without an invite for a day and have it delivered at their doorsteps within 15 minutes of placing the order.
The partnership aimed at delighting millions of OnePlus fans and Ola users will go live on the Ola mobile app only on December 8, 2015, across seven cities in India viz. Delhi/NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ahmedabad. Fans wishing to purchase the OnePlus X can open their Ola app and request a phone, just like they would book a cab, by clicking on the ‘ONEPLUSX’ category icon that will be available on the app between 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM. Once the request is received, an Ola cab will arrive at the customer’s location; along with a representative from OnePlus, with the smartphone. Customers will get a choice of paying for their OnePlus X handsets through cash (Cash On Delivery) or credit/debit cards.
Sudarshan Gangrade, Vice-President – Marketing at Ola said, “We continue to deliver unique experiences to delight our consumers by giving users a chance to buy a smartphone on-demand, straight from the Ola app and get it delivered at their doorstep within minutes.
