Brazilian startup James Delivery suspends delivery fees for larger purchases and COVID-19’s risk group customers

The delivery app James, owned by the retail giant GPA that controls the supermarkets chains Extra and Pão de Açúcar, suspended the delivery fees for a large part of the purchases made through its app, in order to help people to stay at home during the coronavirus crisis. 

Free delivery is valid for those who buy from BRL 50 in supermarkets, and from BRL 25 for selected partner restaurants.

The delivery app is also making free deliveries for those who are part of the risk group to COVID -19, such as the elderly, health professionals and people who have chronic diseases.

James operates in 18 Brazilian cities. In addition to the delivery service for Extra and Pão de Açúcar chains, it also works with various types of commercial establishments, including small and medium-sized companies.

In addition to free deliveries, and using the services of the social impact startup Polen, James is also raising donations through its app for three NGOs – CUFA, an organization that supports communities from slums in 27 Brazilian states, is one of them.
