Hi Dimers! Based on low prices and offers, Which is the best app/website for ordering Grocery?

I myself use Flipkart Supermart. But I see many people here not liking it. So which according to you is the best to get grocery on lowest prices with best offers?

Or From where do you order grocery among these apps/websites -
1) Amazon Pantry
- https://www.amazon.in/pantry-online-grocery-sho...
2) Big Basket
- https://www.bigbaske...m/
3) Flipkart Supermart
- https://www.flipkart.com/grocery-supermart-stor...
4) Grofers
- https://grofer...m/?
5) JioMart
- https://www.jiomar...m/

Pls specify the reason also.

Super daily is really good in bangalore thought bit pricey during lockdown but only one application deliver groceries every day and next day,I am subscriber for milk and they charge monthly fee of around 90 but it is worth during lockdown as you can buy anything next day ,it makes us completely independent from going to shops

Bigbasket for me as it used to have great offers on CITI band credit card but not anymore. Also Bigbasket stopped accepting SODEXO which is unfortunate and illogical (they mention no COD so no Sodexo Card).

Grofers is second option as Sodexo is accepted even on non food items. But limited items available.

Never tried Amazon Pantry due to odd limitations on per item qty.

JioMart doesn’t show many items. And behaves odd, one day it says delivery available, other day it says not available in my location yet. (Hyderabad)

Every month I use grofers + sodexo + SuprDaily (has some good discounts and next day delivery)

Interestingly i couldn’t get COKE anywhere except in SuprDaily.

Grofers limits 3 qty per order for coke 750ml. Bigbasket doesn’t show coke. Same with jiomart.

Flipkart Supermart, because it has daily 1Re. sale offer and also delivers quickly

Grofers mostly since you don’t have to compare juggling price like Amazon and BigBasket. Esp Amazon introduced like SuperFast delivery ‘Fresh’ where items are more expensive than regular Pantry or rather order from BigBazaar for quick delivery.

Don’t want all the hassle then simply use Grofers with membership which reduces price further and everyday there is some discount from different card or bank.

Also the Chakki Atta Price @ 276 / 10 Kg (before discount)is the least compared to any other grocery site online! Also, the local brands are of good quality compared to Amazon (not solimo)

Flipkart Supermart is not yet available in Kolkata.
Jiomart has entered here 2 months back. But it is not yet reliable here. They only provide an estimated delivery date and they always missed that estimate during my 4 orders on Jiomart. Also, there is no guarantee that you will get delivery of all the items that were ordered. This is just not acceptable.
Rest 3 (Bigbasket, Amazon and Grofers) are all good in Kolkata.

I place multiple orders from different portals, whichever offers lower price….

I use to hate flipkart before, but even since i got flipkart plus ive been buying a lot…

Service wise i get same day next day slot on flipkart,amazon pantry,amazon fresh and bigbasket…

Grofers i get slot after 4-5 days, because they are getting A HUGE amount of orders …..during the first 2 months of lockdown grofers was delivering incomplete orders, but since june, every grofers order has been delivered on time and every product has been delivered properly……

So yes, dont buy blindly, order whichever offers cheapest.

Based on experience of Year 2020
1. Bigbasket (The Brigadier) :-
- When it became App of choice?:- when payzapp 25% or CitiCredit 20% cashback offers used to Run. It still was App of choice when one could get 15% minimum discount/cashback i.e. Period Before Lockdown. Initially in Lockdown it was again App of choice because one of few platform which was delivering despite max. 10% cashback/discount. But after 1 month of lockdown it had moved down much lower in my preference list.
- Advantage:- Widest Range of Products; Support system is also good.
- Advice:- Take BBstar membership and minimum order amount reduces to 600.

2. Amazon (The Lieutenant) :- It becomes App of choice whenever Pantry cashback offers Runs. Amazon one could get 15% minimum discount with bank offers. It usually hops back in and out of app of choice.
- When it became App of choice?:- In 2nd month of lockdown when it gave 300Cashback on 1000 in addition to Payment offers for old users. And since one always can get 15% savings its always in Top3 app to order grocery.
- Disadvantage:- Vegetables/Fruits/Dairy is not available (Available on AmazonFresh but price might be bit higher even after offers)

3. Flipkart Supermart :- It becomes App of choice whenever multiple cashback offers get combined. Plus 1 can get easily 10-15% savings here + Rs1 deals +prices of FEW items on flipkart is incomparable
- When it became App of choice?:- Last month when one could combine 3-4 100 off coupon + 10% savings via payment + grocery savings pass cashback + Rs1 deals
- Disadvantage:- Minimum order amount for Free delivery is bit higher; Range is bit limited.
- Advice:- App to order Selected Products once in few month

4. Grofers (The Subedar) :-
- Disadvantage:- Stock is good but mostly inbuilt brand products; Discount/cashback is around 10% max
- When it became App of choice?:- Uggh Never for me. Only ordered i think twice in current year b/c i had Wallet balance + MX player 10% discount code.

5. Jiomart (The Newbie trying to get promoted to Lieutenant Directly) :- Pricing is competitive and catching with payment offers.
- Advantage:- Pricing Of Fruits and Vegetables is best of among all.
- Disadvantage:- Can’t be Trusted for Delivery of Soft or Tender Fruits and Vegetables in good condition; Support system is almost non existing; Range can be improved by making available all instore items online.
- Advice:- Don’t order Fruits and Vegetables which can be crushed + Order with Caution as its Jiomart(beta) so some might have issues.

Few others apps which are NOT long term option in Getting Grocery (Order only till they have Offers Running) e.g.:-
• Eat.Fit (The Newbie who left desidime) :- Narrowest Range of products infact calling it Range is insult to the word itself. But it was best in getting Those selected products like Aashirvaad Atta, Saffola Oil, Oats, Cornflakes, Milk, Bread, Selected 24mantra pulses and … well Range is over.
- Advantage:- Quick delivery within 2 hours and when Phonepe Offer was running 45% savings on selected products.
- Disadvantage:- Limited area servicable, Limited stock and limited range and Phonepe Switch offers are not always running.
- When it became app of choice?:- With Phonepe Switch Eat.fit offers it was app of choice for very few products during lockdown. But once phonepe offers disappeared last month then Eat.fit also disappeared from list of app to order grocery from. Not useful Now

• Magicpin (The Newbie who just got promoted to Cadet) :- 2 ways to get Grocery:- Buy local Grocery shop vouchers or Do Magicorder (pickup+delivery both options)
- When it became app of choice? It is currently app of choice for past 1 month since it started BigFridaySale.
- Advantage:- Discounts started from 65% when BigFridaySale started 1 month back and currently at 50%.
- Disadvantage:- A Lot and if one has no experience of using Magicpin then its bit difficult too. Limited location served; one need magicpoints for discount; One need to find store which accept magicpin(as few listed store don’t accept despite being listed by magicpin) etc etc.
- Advice:- Avoid it if you are Lazy and many more but Let’s leave them as post is already very long😝😝

The choice keep changing everytime. The one offering Best price for items of need at time of need become app/website of choice.

Note:- Kindly don’t Quote this comment, better option will be tagging me.

Feedback was based on year2020 experience and pepper tap closed in 2016 though it was good platform with 2hour delivery service that time.

No.1 choice: Big basket ( truly widest range of products) But whenever I bought veggies or fruits I faced issues , rotten/ dried/ crushed ones were delivered. But their customer support team is excellent, whenever there’s a issue they solve it or refund the amount for damaged/ spoilt products. But delivery slot isn’t always available. So one need to try again and again.

No. 2: Great Customer support. Reasonable Prices ( considering the cash backs) rarely get any damaged products. If I get damaged product Getting issue is not a hassle.

Their packaging Box is good too rich we don’t get with big basket. But their product range is limited.

Grofer and Flipkart Supermart Is not available on my location. So can’t comment.

I’m yet to try JioMart

Agree, during lockdown these mom and pop shops or rasan ki dukaan only were options. No grofers, pantry or bigbasket was delivering. Please make sure you give some share of your business to these shops too. They are pure Indian and need our support.

And that PM only has coined the term – Vocal for local. He is the one that who popularised the concept – Aatmanirbhar.

After Nehru ji and Indira he is the only popular PM whom people really trust. PM Cares is far better than the earlier PM National Relief Fund which gave its money to Sonia Gandhi’s private trust.

I find the prices of all the websites comparable when there are discounts running, ie, some products are costlier than others , but average out over the cart value. On a order of 1000, its maybe 40-50 or sometimes less. I have done this comparison many times over in the last few years. Also, its always that few items that I need aren’t available on every website. BigBasket is the least offender in this case. So 1-1 comparison of my shopping list is never 100% accurate. Finally, it all boils down to the items that I need and which website has the most available. Wait for the discount/offer and buy.

2018-2019 was mostly amazon for me as it gave lots of pantry discounts and offers (which are now reduced drastically). Before that, there wasn’t much competition and BigBasket was the only major player. I also ordered from BigBasket, Grofers and StarQuick in 2018-19 few times. 2020 its all mixed up. I ordered few times from Bigbasket which never got delivered due to the lockdown and sudden increase in demand. Have order few times from amazon, starquick and grofers. From last 2 months using Flipkart as I am getting multiple offers. Also shopped from More, Big Bazaar and Reliance Smart stores.

On another note, prices are excessively jacked up, be it online or in the stores. For eg, in Bangalore, Moong daal 1 kg is priced anywhere between 140-180/kg. But if you know wholesale, you can get for 110/kg. Some other eg, Toor daal 95/kg, sugar 37/kg, etc. Even for vegetables, small farmers sell almost at half price, whereas the stores and online jack up the prices. But not available everywhere and easily and not everyone has the time as well.

Finally my experience says, look for the website where some discount is available, like card discount, or coupon discount, etc. See if the items you need are available, if yes then order. Else, take some membership and become loyal to that website. Take card which provides additional benefits, eg amazon icici. Buy from it without thinking twice whenever you need and cut all the other hassles.

It should rather be convenience than looking for additional discounts.

Yea discount are and should be priority as well but comparing it to offline rates is something completely different.

Comparing the proces to a big bazaar or a dmart where we need to go there and shop – its a cost for us as well. Plus the time and convenience as well
