Under the Jio welcome offer, users can enjoy unlimited access to HD voice calls (on Jio eligible VOLTE phones), messaging, video calls, high-speed data, as well as get access to Jio’s suite of apps till December 31, 2016. Reliance Jio has extended its welcome offer to mobile companies such as Lenovo, Micromax, Asus, Panasonic, HTC and Samsung, Intex to name a few.

At the launch, Nitin Sharma, Sr.Director – Category, ShopClues, said “We believe that our association with Reliance Jio will help users to fully unlock the potential of their smartphones and experience 4G like never before. The bold tariff offers, free voice calls, instant call connect amongst other features have caught the attention of Indian customers nation-wide and they are eager to get access to high-speed and unlimited data for free. Reliance Jio has indeed taken the telecom market by storm in a short span and our partnership will help us pass on its incredible value-driven services to our large and loyal customer base.”

This may be the first in a series of partnerships with larger e-commerce players like Amazon India and Flipkart which may follow in the footsteps of Shopclues in pursuit of their own slice in the revenue market share of online 4G smartphone sales. Reliance Industries seems to be playing it smart, having partnered with almost all major smartphone manufacturers and now having turned to e-commerce giants.
