Major brands of marketplaces have joined the novelty, whose main objective is to decrease the delivery time of retailers in shopping centers: "Now users of the platform now have access to the key categories of online marketplaces, but with a difference: why wait days to receive the products you want at home if you can have them in less than an hour ?, said the director of e-commerce at Rappi in Brazil Eduardo Sodero.

Rappi Mall proposes to provide in the delivery application the products sold by physical stores in malls. When the user completes the in-app purchase, the desired item is packaged in the partner store and picked up by a company delivery person at the mall. The application has gained new filters to facilitate the search in the Rappi Mall, with options such as item, price, gender and size.
The novelty diversifies the collection of products delivered by Rappi, which before was mainly aimed at supermarket items and food products. Rappi Mall currently has 50 brands, such as Fast Shop, Saraiva, Vivo, Imaginarium, Multicoisas, Decathlon, LOccitane and others.
The company foresees the registration of up to a thousand partner brands in the Rappi Mall by the end of the year, which brings products to the app, ranging from stationery items, toys, appliances, electronics, clothing items and even perfumery.
In addition, to publicize the launch of the new service, Rappi offers a 20% discount voucher on the first purchase made by Rappi Mall. The promotion is valid for payments made via PayPal, with discounts of up to R $ 50 and a minimum purchase value of R $ 200. The installment can be made up to ten times without interest.
