Living in Saigon can be complicated, luckily we have here plenty of entrepreneurs that have launched useful apps that make our life easier in here.
It is THE application for all the lazy-bones. You can order whatever you want from the application (they have fruits & vegetables, drinks, bakery and food from restaurants such as Mc Donald’s) and if it is not referenced in their catalog, you can contact them via Viber and make your order directly to them. The delivery fee is 30,000 VND and can be 50,000 VND depending on how far you are.
How to use the application:
Step 1: Sign in, put your address of delivery and schedule your order (can be now or later)
Step 2: You go through all the different categories
Step 3: You add products in your shopping cart. For all product, you can see from which stores is from and for the fruits and vegetables, you have the prince per weight.
Step 4: You check your order and checkout.
You can also order through their website.
The operation manager will contact you as soon as they receive your order to check if it is correct (address, time of delivery, products ordered). In case the product is out of stock, they will contact you to let you know and offer you an alternative. They also send you picture of the product to make sure it is the right product you want (It is the case when you order via Viber).
I highly recommend this application because it is convenient (If you are having a huge hangover, you will be happy to know that you breakfast will arrive soon; if you have scheduled it), they are flexible meaning that you can order from any place you want (From the local market for example, where the fruits and vegetables are much cheaper than in the supermarket, as long as you know where it is) and it’s quick, delivered within 30min.
