Shopping for things on online is becoming more popular day by day.
Screaming Kids, long queues & torn shopping bags – these may be just a couple of the reasons why we avoid visiting the local super markets, choosing instead to do our weekly shopping online.
If you ever wanted to know why people are increasingly relying on shopping online, here are some reasons behind it.
Most supermarkets are designed in such a way where a shopper has to go through different floors and aisles to get basic food products. Suppose that your grocery list includes Rice, Wheat, Edibles, Tea, Milk. In most superstores, you may not be able to find these products in the same aisle.
When you opt for the online experience, you can easily use the ‘search’ feature to get to the items you want. Plus the landing pages are designed in a way that help shoppers quickly get access to the best sellers.
mycart offers the ‘Reorder’ functionality where you can add all products from your previous order in cart with a single tap or click from there you can pick & choose the products you want to order.
The checkout process usually takes 1 – 3 minutes. If you are a first time customer (first time takes more time as you have to add your delivery info) or a repeat customer, the online checkout option is faster when compared to your local supermarkets where you have to face a long queue. When you shop online, you are always the priority.
When you use an ecommerce platform, after selecting the preferred shipping and payment method, your job is done. This is convenient when you compare the same process offline – after checking out of a retail store. you have to carry your products to the parking (unless you are using a cab or porter service).
When you shop at mycart, the responsibility for keeping your items safe till your doorstep lies with the courier delivering your order.
1 out of 5 shoppers buy a frozen product with their groceries. Frozen products typically take 25 – 30 minutes to start melting inside the trunk of a car usually. Comparatively, when you order frozen products online, they are delivered to you in temperature-controlled vans and insulated boxes to prevent melting.
Even with all the advantages listed above, you can save up to Rs.1000 when you do your monthly groceries at mycart.pk every month from 28th till 7th of the month. You can even avail up to 30% discounts as well as additional offers when you pay with Meezan Bank, MCB & Allied Bank.
