Walmart continues to fight for the relevance of the Internet with the launch of Jetblack, the new personal shopping service of the company that you send by text message. Jetblack is powered by automated bots and live humans who will do everything possible to satisfy your requests. "I need you, send her a text message Get it, Jetblack is the easiest way to buy for busy moms," says the slogan. I'm sorry, dads.
Jetblack, or "J" as we're supposed to call it, begins his life exclusively in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Members send text messages or specific purchase requests directly to Wal-borg, where their network of AI-driven bots and professional buyers will take action. The service can recommend the best TV, for example, or gifts for any desired occasion. Deliveries will arrive the same or next day, without additional charges. There is no minimum expense (hello palette after the party!) And Jetblack will come to you to collect any refund. Gift wrapping is free, but you can not order food.
Membership is available by invitation only and costs $ 50 per month. If deemed worthy, a 10 minute phone call will reveal your favorite brands, family allergies and frequently requested items.
The service has been operating in secret for the last eight months, with members buying more than ten items a week, according to Bloomberg with thousands of people already lined up on the waiting list of J.  Jetblack is an original idea of Jenny Fleiss, who joined the # 8 technology incubator at Walmart's Store one year after previously founding Rent the Runway. Its launch follows a walmart.com modernization in May that focused on "exclusive" fashion.
