Walmart’s Mexico unit has begun offering grocery delivery from its Superama stores via messaging service WhatsApp.

WhatsApp, the free text-messaging service owned by social media platform Facebook, is ubiquitous throughout Mexico. Superama shoppers can text an order to a WhatsApp number run by Walmart, known in Mexico as Walmart de Mexico. Superama charges MXN49 (USD 2.55) for delivery in 90 minutes, or MXN39 (USD 2.03) for a longer delivery time, and accepts payment in cash or with a card at the time of delivery.
