How does elGrocer Work?

The workflow of elGrocer is different from other standard grocery delivery systems. elGrocer is actually an interface, a platform where sellers and buyers meet. The sellers are the nearest Supermarkets found by elGrocer when the user enters their Location, and the products displayed in the application will be based on these shops. The user has to enter location first, pick a shop near them and then pick a product from that shop it's as easy as that. elGrocer forwards your order to the Store you ordered from. The Retailers have their own dedicated application so that they can track, manage the orders from their own application. All the orders placed from the Android, IOS applications and Website are forwarded to the retailers through the Retailer application. In average elGrocer takes less than 60minutes to deliver an order, Because most of the Delivery is handled by elGrocer themselves. So if you are in a hurry you can choose the earliest time slot or Schedule it for later.

This kind of business model ensures Genuinity of the ordered products and quick service as the team is directly involved until the product is delivered and for the support later on.
