Types of Grocery Delivery Apps


The online grocery delivery app market is highly competitive. As there are a lot of players in this market, it is essential that you decide from the beginning which type of grocery delivery mobile app should develop along with its business. 

Your entire resources, along with your operations and capital investment, depends on the type of app you are going to build. If you are looking to develop a Grocery Delivery Mobile App for your grocery business, then you can go through these options. In a summarized manner, the apps are of two kinds:

Dedicated Grocery Delivery Apps


The dedicated grocery delivery apps have all the features of the aggregator model, but in the dedicated model, you have to manage the complete order facilitation. In easy words, different grocery stores would sign up on this platform, and start selling the items. 

You would have your own fleet of delivery executives. Your main task would be to facilitate order placement and deliver goods to the customers. Under this model, more responsibility is on the online grocery platform as it needs to have a dedicated fleet of delivery executives.

Aggregator Grocery Delivery Apps


If you are planning to develop a grocery delivery app on the aggregator model, then you need to collaborate with local grocery stores. This model is generally preferred by those who are having their own grocery stores, having their own chain of stores, or can tie up with the grocery stores easily. 

In this model, there would be a list of the grocery stores for the user, and the user can decide to purchase from any of the listed stores. The entire responsibilities, including order fulfillment to delivery, are of the store, and you are just a facilitator serving as a mediator between the shopper and the store owner.

Online Grocery Shopping Business Growth Statistics

Being a grocery store or a retail hub, if you are rushing to take advantage of the potential of groceries delivered door to door, you are stepping into a highly competitive market. Both the established and startups like you are curbing the pickup and delivery offerings. For better business opportunities you may go through our curated tips for your app development. 

Choose Business Model to Build Grocery Delivery App




Our grocery mobile app development solution supports different business models as mentioned below, that will help you make your own branded apps. Take a look.


Grocery Store Chains: On-Demand Grocery Store Delivery App Development


If you want to evolve your existing business, this model is for you. Get an on-demand grocery store delivery app and manage all retail and supermarket distribution shop purchases and processes from a centralized dashboard.


Single Grocery Shop: Create Your Own Branded Grocery Delivery Smartphone App


This is one of the easiest methods for opening a grocery store. Simply get an application for your grocery business to go online, and allow your customers to place orders at the tap of a button and get them shipped immediately.


Grocery Marketplaces: Get Your Own Market Platform


Another business model is to create an aggregated platform by listing several shops on the on-demand app for grocery delivery, such as Instacart or an Uber for groceries.

Advanced Features To Keep in Mind While  Grocery Delivery App Development




After implementing the general grocery delivery app features, it is time to implement those features which can make your app stand alone. Here are some of the advanced features that will ensure that your app stays ahead of the competition.


Real-time Analytics


  • Real-time analytics is the data analysis as soon as the data gets available. It helps you to monitor the activity of users, detecting fraud, saving costs, and increasing the conversion rate and profits.


Loyalty Programs


  • Loyalty programs help businesses to stay consistently engaged with the customers, which helps boost brand loyalty. There are several programs like Redeemable Coins, Vouchers, Memberships, physical gifts or gift cards, non-tangible rewards, etc.


Custom Dashboards


  • Custom Dashboards provide a central location for every entity of your business to access, interact and analyze up-to-date information so they can make smarter, data-driven decisions.


Visual Search


  • When the user is unable to identify a real product but wants to purchase from your app, then the AI-based visual search helps in this. Visual search uses real-world images (screenshots, Internet images, or photographs) as the stimuli for online searches and gives desired results.


Push Notifications


  • Push notifications are alert-style messages that appear on the screen when you are not using the app. With these messages, you can deliver relevant and personalized content to your customer’s at the most appropriate moments.


Real-Time Tracking


  • Real-time tracking means sending frequent live tracking updates to a GPS device, i.e. a mobile. By this, the drivers deliver the products within the deadlines, in the case of delay the customers don’t have to wait with uncertainty.


GPS Tracking


  • GPS tracking system in a mobile provides a highly personalized experience to the user. It checks the user’s geographic location and provides results such as items to order, currency, famous grocery stores of that place, nearby stores, etc.


Behavior Tracking


  • Behavior tracking means tracking user response instances in order to deliver a better user experience. The instances are such as what items the user last ordered, most searched items, shopping timing, shopping pattern of the user. For e.g., if you are in Italy, then the app will recommend opting for Italian food items such as Pasta, etc.


CRM Integration


  • CRM integration can benefit your business by helping you centralize, optimize, and streamline your communication with customers and get a better knowledge of customers, increase segmentation and customer retention, and many other benefits.


ERP Integration


  • As your business grows larger, it becomes hard to manage all aspects of it properly. ERP integration helps you to streamline all your business processes and to monitor them.


In-App Calling (Consumer and Store Owner + Delivery Boy)


  • There should be a feature of calling the delivery boy by both consumer and store owner within the app, just like in Uber, OLA, and others.


In-App Chatting (Consumer and Store Owner + Delivery Boy)


  • Similar to in-app calling, in which there was a call feature, there should be a chat feature by which the delivery boy can communicate with both the customer and the store owner.


Number Masking


  • Phone number masking is a technology used to secure the customer’s privacy by connecting them with the delivery boy without exposing their real phone numbers.


In-App Navigation


  • In-app navigation, especially through Google Maps, helps the user to track his/her location quite easily for the delivery address and also helps the delivery boy to locate the destination.


Reviews & Ratings


  • Reviews & ratings help the business to know the customers’ feedback and also helps the other customers to know the services of a store by its ratings.




  • If a customer wants to do the same order numerous times, then by re-ordering functionality, he/she can do the same order without the hassle of adding items again & again.


Business Intelligence


  • Business Intelligence helps business owners to make better-informed decisions backed up with accurate data. It will ultimately help them spot new business opportunities, cut costs, or identify inefficient processes that need reengineering.


Voice Assistance


  • Voice Assistance or voice search gives the user flexibility to do shopping on just voice commands while doing other tasks simultaneously.




  • Recommending the similar items that the user was searching or browsing on your app built a greater user experience and also increased the sales on your site.


Consider Web application & PWA


  • Although the world is moving towards mobile, many people still prefer to do shopping on a widescreen i.e., on desktop, therefore it is essential to develop a web application for your business and also a PWA for those users who don't prefer to download apps for a one-time shopping.

How Much Does It Cost to Develop a Grocery Shopping & Delivery App?


Obviously, the cost of developing grocery delivery mobile applications also matters a lot. However, there are numerous factors on which development cost depends. These are:


Timeline & Team Size


  • If you demand an app within a very short deadline, then obviously, the company will increase its charges. Also, a large team of developers will cost more.


Ecommerce Mobile App Cost


  • A highly prestigious, experienced, and reputed mobile app development company like TCS, Infosys, Wipro, will definitely charge more in comparison to those players who are in the developing phase of the company.


Geolocation Of The App Development Team


  • The geographical location of the development company also matters for the costs. 


Selection Of App Development Partner Is Vital


  • Even you have conducted deep research over the grocery delivery domain, Developing a flawless grocery delivery mobile app requires a skilled and experienced mobile app development partner because grocery delivery app development includes multiple API integrations and customized functionalities. Thus, it is important to select an eCommerce solution provider company with in-depth knowledge of the domain as well as required tech stack.


MVP Or Full Fledge Grocery Delivery App


  • A minimum viable product is an app with just essential features, while a full-fledged product is an app with essential as well as advanced features. If you are a beginner in this segment, then it would be recommended to begin with an MVP and gradually scale up the app features.
