 Demonetisation has taken the Indian economy and social media by a storm. We are all facing much inconvenience due to shortage of cash in hand. Hence, we need to find more ways to survive without cash. We need to shift our focus to the online service providers to buy the stuff that we usually buy offline. 

Five online services are listed here.
 
1. Grocery – We are all used to buying our groceries from the local shop or vegetable vendor. In this cashless situation, online grocery stores are there to the rescue. With the facility to pay online, doorstep delivery and attractive discounts, we can visit online grocery stores like Big Basket and Grofers.
 
2. Public Transport – Office-goers, students, and others spend cash on commuting through public transportation. To save on this daily cash consumption, you can choose to pay online. You can recharge your metro card through apps like Paytm, book buses and shuttles through Ola shuttle and Make My Trip, book cabs online via Ola and Uber to save your valuable cash.
 
3. Paytm – There are many local shops that accept payment through Paytm. So, you can recharge your Paytm wallet and carry out the transaction from these shops. Just scan the bar code in the app and you are done in a click.
 
4. Food – This is not unique because a significant number of people already order food online. Food order and delivery sites now like Zomato and Swiggy are flooded with heavy discounts and offers right. 
 
5. Home Relocation Services – In the present situation it is wiser and more practical to use new age relocation services that accept payment online or can be booked online like Movesure and Aggarwal packers and movers, etc.
 
There are a plethora of other services which can be availed online without having to pay in cash.
