Shoppers' Guide to EasyGrocery App


I have been living independently for more than five years now. Traffic in the metro was too much to handle and I have decided to live near my workplace. You see, I'm after convenience- and yeah, it saves me more time.

However, living alone means I have to juggle many things on my own. Prepare food, do the laundry, clean the room, do some grocery shopping. This is quite a basketful of tasks, considering I spend at least 9 hours at the office, plus preparing and commuting time. This is also true for working parents- sometimes 24 hours isn't just enough. Like we all wish we have some extra hand to do the task. If I can have at least one task unloaded on me, that will be super helpful. 

Last week, I had the privilege to be invited at the launching of EasyGrocery app--the latest mobile app that let's you purchase grocery items and had it delivered at your preferred address within 60 minutes committed time. Now, I can do my groceries online and in the comfort of my own home (or office).

The app is available for free download at Google Play and App Store. It's so easy to use. Just follow these steps:

  1. Download the app from Google Play Store or App Store.
  2. Log in to your account. (Make sure to create an account first.)
  3. Set your delivery location.
  4. Select a preferred store near you.
  5. Pay using credit cars, cash or points.
  6. Choose your delivery option: Store pick up or home delivery.
Here's how the app looks like:


 I have already created my account, so I have just have to log in, select city and the grocery store you wish to buy.


Buying items is easy-peasy. Items are grouped per category. Just browse and select the items you wish to buy, indicate the number of piece/s and then add to cart.



 Once your done selecting the items, you will be given a purchase number. Select your mode of payment then wait for your orders to be processed. Here's the list of the items that I ordered.






Once the 'runner' is done with your items, you'll be notified that your orders are already 'in transit'- meaning, it is on the way to delivery! Now, that's easy, right? :)

EASYGROCERY, Grocery Made Easy!

I had an amazing experience with the EasyGrocery app. It is very easy and convenient to use. For the service and delivery fee of Php200 only, I find this affordable compared to commuting and it saves me time. 

Now I can forego the hassle of physically going to the grocery, dealing with the traffic and crowded supermarket and longer lines at the cashier.
