Orders can be placed via Ooredoo's Moolee app at any time and the booklist will be delivered to your doorstep. Parents and students won't have to go through the hassle of having to come to Male' and waiting in long queues to get into crammed bookshops.

As part of the promotion, customers placing order through Moolee will receive a gift pack consisting of a backpack, sticker pack, cellophane and name card in addition to the booklist.

After logging into the Moolee website, school supplied can be purchased under the category ''books and stationaries''. The student's ID card number along with the voucher code on the voucher issued by the Education ministry has to be presented at check-out. Once delivered, the voucher used to order the book list must be handed over to the delivery person.

If additional stationary required, upgrading the order to gold or platinum package will provide a choice of items from selected brands such as Faber-Castell and Camel Artist Oil. However, the items available under said packages are determined by the grade the student is being promoted to.

Ooredoo's Chief Commercial Officer Hussain Niyaz said that Ooredoo's aim is to eliminate burdens such as parents travelling long distances and staying in queues to get the book list.
