Retail chain, Carrefour, has launched a new mobile application that will enhance the online shopping experience for its Kenyan customers.
The app promises customers a seamless shopping experience allowing them to quickly and conveniently browse and add all their essentials to a digital cart. Over 8,000 products available on newly launched MAF Carrefour app. Customers can also access their receipts as well as past transactions anytime through the app.
Franck Moreau, Country Manager of Carrefour Kenya at Majid Al Futtaim Retail, said, “At Carrefour, we’re constantly finding innovative ways to modernise and digitise the shopping experience for our customers. We are confident that the new app will provide Kenyan customers with a convenient and safe option to shop from the comfort of their homes. Since the start of the pandemic, we have seen the significant growth in online shopping. As such, the introduction of our new app also responds to the growing demand in Kenya for a more sophisticated online shopping platform.”
Delivery services will be available within Nairobi, with plans to expand to other cities across the country in the near future. The online shopping app allows customers to choose a 1-hour delivery slot either on the same day or the next day between 9am and 8pm, for a delivery fee of Ksh.99.
Adding to the benefits, customers registered on Carrefour Loyalty Program, MyCLUB, will also enjoy earning points for their transactions that can later be redeemed in the form of discounts. MyCLUB members can transfer to the new app while continuing to enjoy benefits of the loyalty program.
Initially, payments will only be performed through mobile money platform, M-PESA. However, the Carrefour team is working on extending the same to Debit/ Credit card payments in the coming months.
The MAF Carrefour app is available for download on both Google Play and the App Store.
