Delivering groceries is not a novelty. And though the milkmen hurrying to deliver his milk early in the morning is definitely the thing of the past, grocery delivery is not. You won’t see a grocery boy riding his bicycle on the streets for understandable reasons but grocery delivery itself is given a second life.

As the pace of life is growing rapidly, we don’t have much time and desire to go to the supermarket nowadays. That’s where grocery delivery apps come in handy. People don’t just save time for driving to the supermarket, wandering along the aisles searching for things they need and staying in a queue at the checkout. But they also save money by not buying things they don’t need. It’s hard to stick to the shopping list and avoid spontaneous spending with so many temptations around, especially when you shop in the evening or on weekends when it’s most crowded.

Shopping has never been that efficient with the search option and all the products being organized in categories in the grocery on-demand app. People can choose shops they want to buy food at, pick the preferred delivery time and check out, all at their fingertips.

How to develop your own Uber for groceries? 

Grocery on-demand apps are great solutions aimed to make life easier. Not only busy people who value their time will appreciate them, but also their parents and grandparents will be thankful. If you like shopping and have energy for this, it is great, but older generation may need some help with that. So Uber for groceries may be a great way to order everything your parents or grandparents need and get it delivered right to their doorstep.

But before you get started with building your application it is always recommended to research the market and check the similar solutions. We have fund some popular types of grocery delivery apps represented on the market and here is what they are:

  • Single Store app – it is a grocery app built for only for a certain store. So your users will be able to order the food from this store only and it is quite risky to build such app as the number of your users can be limited due to their personal preferences. 
  • Grocery Chain app – it represents a chain of stores. Such application has more chances to win larger audience because of the huge goods variety. 
  • Aggregators – such types of applications allow users to choose the stores on the map. Here is how it works – you make an order and when the order is placed, the app connects the store to confirm the order. It is very convenient because your delivery will be st your door at soonest. 
  • Marketplace – this kind of app looks pretty much the same as an aggregator but it has its own third-party providers to deliver groceries from the selected stores. It is one of the most popular types of grocery delivery apps worth investing in. 

How much does App Development cost?

Uber for groceries is a holistic solution and it should be of a high quality. Therefore you need a team of qualified specialists to build it for you. As the development cycle is a complex procedure, you will need a range of tech takes starting with developers and  testers and ending with designers and business analysts. Each specialist does an important part of a job to build your app from scratch. Usually software development companies offer the discovery stage (market research), full development cycle, UI and UX design and of cource software maintenance. 

So as you may understand, the price for such Groceries Delivery Apps made by professionals starts from $30 K per one platform (iOS or Android) and it can increase, depending on the company you will choose. However, there is a way to reduce your costs. F.e. you can choose a company which has ready-made developed modules as well as extensive experience in making similar applications. Here at GBSOFT we can build your app at lower price. We may deliver your own on-demand app with unique design developed specifically for your Groceries Delivery Business for only about $10 K instead of $30 K. We have been developing Groceries Delivery Applications for a long time.
