“This will enable digital transactions of all types, whether they be at Mandis, small shops, restaurants, Railway ticket counters, for Bus and mass transit and even for person-to-person money transfers. Jio believes that this offering will contribute significantly in realizing the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of transitioning to a cashless economy,” RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani had said while announcing this on 1 December.

JioMoney is planning to sign up over 10 million merchants including small merchants like small shops, ticket booking agencies, restaurants, bus and train tickets etc, in the next few weeks. In total, the company wants to reach out to 17,000 towns and four lakh villages with their JioMoney app.

Reliance is also planning to put up Aadhaar based micro-ATMs in those places to facilitate digital transactions and to help the country become a cashless economy.

“With this, the JioMoney ecosystem will be a committed and enthusiastic partner for the smooth implementation of our Hon. Prime Ministers game-changing vision of creating a digitally enabled and strong Indian economy,” Ambani added.

Both the JioMoney as well as the Merchant app can be digitally linked to users’ bank account, credit card and debit cards. Once linked, the mobile wallet can be used for any kind of digital transaction. Besides, one can transfer money from their JioMoney or merchant account to their bank accounts.
