PharmEasy, an online medical and healthcare ordering app, announced its partnership with PhonePe, a digital payments platform. PharmEasy is now available on PhonePe Switch, the in-apps platform of PhonePe. As a result of this integration, over 230 million PhonePe users can now order medicines and healthcare products from PharmEasy from within the PhonePe app itself. PhonePe users don’t need to download the PharmEasy app on their phones or visit the website to place their orders anymore.
The company said that PharmEasy allows customers to choose from over 1 lakh medicines and get flat 15% off their medicine orders. Customers can also get up to 60% off on over the counter products and other medical equipment. It is a one-stop healthcare platform where one can get up to 70% off on diagnostic tests, including blood tests, full-body checkups, and other preventive health checkups, right from their home’s comfort.
Saumil Parekh, vice president of Marketing, PharmEasy, said, “This is indeed a great opportunity for both PharmEasy and PhonePe to provide more convenience and ease of access to their users.
