Reliance Jio has rolled out an app called JioPOS Lite app which will now enable anyone to become a Jio partner and earn commission by recharging for others. The app is like a virtual recharge store where users can put in the currency in any Jio user’s account and get commission up to 4.16 percent.
JioPOS Lite is only available for Android users, as of now. It can be downloaded from Play Store. Users must note that the person downloading it must have a Jio number. Users can keep track of transactions for 20 days via the app’s Passbook feature. The My Jio app or Jio website already enables users to recharge prepaid accounts of others. However, they don’t offer any commission.
Recently, Airtel did a similar thing with its ‘Earn from Home’ scheme. The telco is offering a 4 percent cash back on recharging other people’s Airtel connection. In JioPOS Lite, the operator is offering 4.16 percent of the recharge amount.
JioPhone users are often limited to offline platforms for a recharge. However, these stores and centers are currently shut down due to the lockdown. As a result, JioPhone users have to resort to alternative channels. These include UPI, ATM, SMS and even via calls. But, Jio recognized that not every JioPhone user might have access to even these services in the current scenario. So the company recently provided 100 minutes of calls and 100 SMS benefits to each and every JioPhone user in India. The benefits will be available until April 17, 2020.
Meanwhile, Reliance Jio has been making a bunch of changes to its plans lately. Most of this is to help people stuck in lockdowns to be better equipped with more data, for working from home and staying entertained. We saw the telco double the benefits of its data vouchers, launch a work from home plan and even make new JioFiber connections free.
