Building a grocery DELIVERY APP like Instacart, Doordash, Postmates

Building a grocery delivery marketplace app shouldn’t be that hard these years. With the advancement we have in the technology, the affordability is lesser. You may want to support your existing grocery chains with digital transformation or you want to take on the informal economy into the smart app. 

Do you need a Grocery Smart App?

If you want the millennials and Z Generation who are digital savvy to become your lifelong customers, you need something that is always on their smartphones. And it is mobile apps. The younger expects more than what they buy in terms of experience and technology.  

They don’t need just grocery but

  • They like to have their orders tracked in their mobile app, so they can always refer and monitor their spending. 
  • They like to copy and paste previous bills, so they can order the same list of items. 
  • They like the system sometimes recommend items based on their behavior, this could save their cost and time as well.
  • And also easy to discover things at any time and anywhere.

The current generation which has higher spending power values time more than the money. So they try to opt for things which are faster, efficient, on-demand, and also personalized.

With all this in mind, we have developed a Grocery App through Tradly platform infrastructure with clear user-centric features. We dig deep into human psychology on how they do shopping experience in offline and their digital lifestyle patterns.
