Online grocery apps/services available during the Community Quarantine
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Enhanced Community Quarantine, going out to get groceries has become a dangerous and inconvenient task. To help ease the process, we’ve listed several online grocery delivery platforms that are still operational. We also included other platforms that offer select products such as meat and produce.
Unfortunately, due to the number of incoming orders that these platforms are handling, your order might not push through. Some have even implemented a block schedule for deliveries so customers can know when their deliveries will arrive. If you need groceries ASAP, we advise you to try out another grocery delivery platform on the list instead.
Metro Mart is an on-demand delivery service for groceries, bakeries, electronics, and even pet care. They have tie-ups with several supermarkets and drugstores, including Robinsons, S&R, Rustan’s, Shopwise, and more. Metro Mart uses a scheduled delivery system, so users know when their groceries will arrive. For payment, you have the option of cash on delivery, or through credit/debit cards. Do note that Metro Mart has a PHP 1,000 minimum purchase order.
While the rest of Lazada’s logistics are suspended due to the community quarantine, the Laz Mart is still operational. Laz Mart is Lazada’s supermarket. You can order the same way as you would with any Lazada purchase. For payment, users have the option of paying through their Lazada Wallet, Credit/Debit Card, Cash On Delivery, BDO Installment, and GCash.
Walter Mart is a supermarket chain that offers online deliveries straight to your door. Walter Mart selects the nearest branch and allows you to browse from the available products there. Additionally, users may also pick up their groceries at the selected Walter Mart branch. Do note that Walter Mart has a PHP 2,000 minimum order requirement. Users have the option to pay via Cash on Delivery, Swipe on Delivery, select Credit and Debit Cards, GCash, and Grab Pay.
You can order either through their website or official app for Android and iOS.
Landers is a membership-based supermarket with loads of unique items you won’t usually see in other local groceries. Last year, they started to offer a new online delivery service exclusively for Landers members through their website. Like WalterMart, Landers is also using a scheduled delivery system to ensure the customers will receive deliveries. Landers is also offering free delivery for orders above PHP 6,000. Customers have the option to pay via cash on delivery, Paymaya, Paynamics, and credit card.
You can become a member, check out their products, and order at their official website.
Session groceries is a farm to table experience, where customers can buy fresh produce directly from different farms. As of the moment, they can deliver to NCR, areas of Laguna, Rizal, and Cavite. The minimum order is PHP 300, and users can pay via Cash on Delivery, Bank Transfer, and GCash.
While they primarily take orders through their Android and iOS apps, the overwhelming number of orders they have been receiving due to the community quarantine may delay your orders. Instead, they are encouraging their customers to call their staff or message their official Facebook page.
Fresh Produce PH
Fresh Produce PH is another farm-to-doorstep platform that promises to deliver fresh produce within 24 hours. They use refrigerated vans to ensure that the produce stays fresh and allows users to replace or reject goods that aren’t to their satisfaction. Users have the option to pay via Cash on Delivery, Online banking / OTC, credit card, or non-bank payment solutions like LBC, Bayad Center, and more.
Homegrown Organics is another direct-from-the-farm store that deliveries fresh produce to its customers. Replacements will be given to products with damage and spoilage. They have a 1-2 day delivery, no minimum order, and free delivery for orders above PHP 450. For payment, Homegrown Organics accepts Cash on Delivery and bank transfers. Customers will receive a call or SMS confirming the delivery time.
All orders are done through their official Shopify store.
Sunbright Foods is a Facebook store that delivers fresh produce to its customers. You can find an updated product and price list on their pinned post. All orders are done through their Facebook page, and they accept orders from Monday to Thursday. They fulfill deliveries within the next two days upon ordering. Unfortunately, they do not offer Cash On Delivery; instead, you can pay via bank transfer or GCash. For more information on how to order, check out their how to order post.
Les Aunor’s is a butcher shop located in Farmer’s Market, Cubao, that accepts delivery for meat products. Like Sunbright Foods, their available products, operating hours, and contact information are all on their Facebook page. As for payment options, they accept transfers from BPI, Security Bank, and PSBank during the quarantine, but have accepted Cash On Delivery in the past as well.
Pacific Bay, the same one you find in your local supermarkets, also offer deliveries within Metro Manila. They offer seafood, pork, beef, and poultry. For payment, Pacific Bay accepts Cash on Delivery, GCash, major credit cards, and Paypal.
You can check out the available items, the prices, and place your orders through Pacific Bay’s official website.
If you’re looking to turn up on the weekends at home, you can get alcoholic beverages delivered to your doorstep with Boozy. Owned and operated by BoozyLife Inc., Boozy delivers alcoholic drinks, sodas, syrups, snacks, and mixers. Unfortunately, due to the community quarantine, they are only operating in Makati, Taguig, Mandaluyong, Manila, Pasay, and Pateros.
Due to the high number of incoming orders due to the community quarantine, expect that delivery times will be delayed. It might be worth it to try out different shops for different products so that you can get the goods you need when you need it. Stay safe, and stay home!
