Algiers, Algeria-based temtem, a mobility startup, on Friday, in a statement to LAFFAZ, announced that the company has launched a new feature on its temtem One Super App. The new feature allows Algerians living abroad to order groceries or shopping items, and get them delivered directly to their relatives’ homes in Algeria.
temtem in October 2020 launched the country’s first super app – offering unique access to digital services for an ultra-connected and 100 percent mobile generation. The super app is for ordering groceries, ride-hailing, carpooling, shopping, mobile top-up, scheduling a doctor or fixer at home and other services like payments from diaspora. The app is powered by an integrated payment system.

How does it work?
Algerians living abroad can now order groceries or shopping items, and get them delivered directly to their relatives’ homes in Algeria.
They simply enter the address and phone number of their loved ones, pay with their payment card (VISA, MasterCard, American Express) and temtem will deliver their order within 2 hours in express mode or 1 to 5 days depending on the region, Algiers is delivered for example in 24 hours. temtem already delivers to 21 of the 48 Algerian regions.
“temtem Diaspora” is a response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has severely limited travel to Algeria.
Indeed, the diaspora has not been able to meet their loved ones for almost a year because of the pandemic. Their relatives may also experience economic difficulties in view of the current situation, particularly in Algeria. Algerians abroad naturally want to help their loved ones: it has never been easier to do so more than with the temtem One Super App.
temtem Diaspora helps increase foreign exchange reserves
Payments made in foreign exchange are sent to the accounts of temtem in dinars, thus contributing to the Algerian foreign exchange reserve.
After numerous consultations and advice from Société Générale Algeria bank, temtem One Super App ensured that all the offers and processes comply with the Algerian regulations.
The total financial flows form the Algerian diaspora to their country exceeded 2 billion dollars in 2018 while in Morocco this amount is near 8 billion. Diaspora remittances represent a huge potential for Algeria and we believe that these amounts can increase substantially!
Speaking of the fresh development, Salim Bouazzouni, head of temtem One Super App, in a statement said,
“We design products and services that meet local needs with one goal: improving people’s lives. Giving easy access to services that matter, in an innovative way with services that do not exist elsewhere like temtem Diaspora,”
Algerian startups continue to participate in the country’s economic development, notably through unprecedented innovations.
The temtem One Super App offers retailers and brands the opportunity to take the lead in e-commerce. Any distributor or other commercial activity can highlight its products through the app alongside a delivery service.
temtem One Super App is significantly participating in the ongoing digital acceleration in Algeria.
Commenting on the new release of temtem One Super App, Yacine Oualid, Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister in charge of the knowledge economy and startups, stated,
“I congratulate the startup temtem One Super App for this excellent initiative. It’s the first time that an Algerian company provides such services to our diaspora, increasing at the same time the foreign currency incomes. This only proves that starting today, Algeria can rely on the innovations of its startups to diversify the economy and act as a vector of the financial inclusion.”
