Many of the resellers also facilitate e-shopping, ordering food from restaurant, paying your monthly EMI’s and insurance premiums.
If you are interested in using a particular reseller’s service, it is best to seek first-hand information about the services that they facilitate. Also choose to go only with the reputed ones and prefer to leave the not-so-popular ones. This is because of safety and security reasons as the online medium is not free from digital hackers and thefts.
