Is Shopping for Groceries Online Feasible in the Philippines?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

While online shopping remains a force to reckon with in hard financial times, the question of whether online groceries is a reality or simply an attempt by the multi conglomerates to rip you off. There are many technicalities in terms of food handling when it is delivered, let alone when it is cooked. This article will discuss if online grocery shopping should become a common aspect of everyday life.

In terms of accessing groceries, it’s an easy task if you live in the suburbs or in the city. Heck, even if you live in the remote area, you can still access some kind of general store. Online groceries are for several types of people:

● There are these people who are too lazy and who would rather watch TV than go to the supermarket
● There are the individuals who are too busy working until late to go to the supermarket
● There are people that want to save time by avoiding the queues and the rush in the supermarket aisles
● And of course, there are people who want specific products but who are unable to access it in remote areas.

All in all, it seems like a pretty easy option. But people aren’t convinced about the whole idea. After all there are several questions that need to be answered;

-Will the food still be fresh?
-How much will I pay for delivery?
-Do I still get a rewards card?
-Do I get discounts as well?
-Will my orders arrive on time?

There are two agencies that provide the unique service that is online shopping; and It’s a very simple concept. Once the supermarket receives a delivery and once they process it, they load a company truck with all your products and voila! Pinoy supermarket is stocked with thousands of items that they ship everyday. Anything from; coconut sauces, noodles, drinks , desserts, snacks or fried fish.

On the other hand you have Phil Grocer - an online delivery system that will enable you to shop for your groceries at any time of the day and get everything delivered within a day of the order. Phil Grocer delivers nationwide in Philippines and is operational 7 days a week. In terms of delivery, there is a flat delivery charge for Metro Manila (USD9.99). It is possible to get your groceries delivered within the Metro Manila are the next day if you place your order before 10:00am. Everything is done to satisfy customers - frozen products that you have purchased will be kept frozen while being transported while dry products like peanuts and chips will be packed at room temperature.

If you are thinking of buying products like creams, hair products, perfumes or organic products, a good website is Lazada Philippines. It offers constant discounts and price reductions. The wide array of products as well as the great prices make it a great website for online shoppers in Philippines. In terms of getting even more discounts, you should check out iprice Philippines. It’s a free online couponing website that freely lists discounts to use. All you have to do is to copy and paste the code to your checkout page.

All in all online grocery shopping can be an easy process if you choose the right supermarket. If you’re a busy person, on line grocery shopping is the ideal solution for you. The only thing that wouldn’t be encouraged would be to shop online for an important event like; a birthday, Christmas and Easter.
