Year 2023: Swiggy One Lite launched with 10 Free Deliveries for Food & Instamart

In October 2023, last year, Swiggy (backed by Venture Capitalists like Softbank) launched a brand new verison of Swiggy One, the Swiggy One Lite which started at Rs.99 for 3 months, offered 10 free deliveries for food (above orders of ₹149) & Instamart (on orders above ₹199)

This was also a time when Swiggy launched its co-branded credit card with HDFC. Swiggy HDFC Credit Card

Swiggy also hiked its platform fee to 2% which even Swiggy One users had to pay (sounds metaphorically similar to a surge fee?😂)

Greedy One! Then why would anyone pay for One membership if it still has MOV? They should at least give free delivery without MOV for HDFC Swiggy card holders then

makes sense @some1anywhere but perhaps not as long as Swiggy has users who order 6 lakhs worth of Idlis and over 269 items in a single order by yet another user:)) There was also some news of their IPO launching soon..let's see how that goes & if any big changes come after that
