Online grocery shopping is not an entirely foreign concept in Pakistan, or around the world for that matter. When everything is available online, it seems like the norm of going out and pushing your own trolley, searching high and low from aisle to aisle, and standing in long lines is becoming less and less normal. With an app like OctoberNow on the market, it is now easier than ever to order groceries and home products online, and it could not have come at a better time. The app allows you to order anything from groceries, to home care, to stationery, featuring over 9000 products from a wide variety of stores across the city of Karachi.
When it comes to what separates OctoberNow from the existing online grocery stores, the list is endless. There are several features on the OctoberNow app that not only make the ordering process much more convenient for the customers, but are also completely new to the Pakistani market.
On the OctoberNow app, to compare item prices between stores, you can add all your products with quantities to your cart, click on Get Best Prices, and the app’s intelligence engine automatically gives you the lowest price from your neighborhood stores. This means that you will be able to get the best deal for the products you want, at the lowest possible price from nearby stores. The price compare feature ensures that you do not have to pay more money for a product that is available for a lower price somewhere else.
The speedy delivery is one of the things that makes OctoberNow an unmatched platform and service. Once you place your order, it will be picked up from the store of your choice by one of OctoberNow’s riders, affectionately dubbed ‘Biker Boys’. It will then be delivered to your house within 60 minutes, and you’ll have your groceries at your doorstep. All without having to get out of your seat.
Terms & conditions apply as it depends on the weather, roads, orders, etc of the riders at that particular time.
Scroll, swipe, search, select? That’s old news. Speak your order now!
Ordering online can sometimes be a time-consuming process, especially when you have to continuously scroll, swipe, and search for what you want. To make your online grocery shopping as convenient as possible, OctoberNow has a built-in Voice Note feature, which allows you to say what you want to order into the microphone of your mobile phone, and it will show you all the options for that product.
There are some household staples that need to be bought regularly, like eggs, bread, and water, and going through the whole app searching for those staple items can be too much of a hassle. OctoberNow has a feature that allows you to make a list of your ‘Favourite’ items from your chosen store, which allows you to easily access your favourite items and reorder them without having to go through the whole process from start to finish.
OctoberNow takes pride in saying that there are no hidden costs attached to any of the products you buy. The prices of the products are exactly the same as if you went to the store yourself to buy the products. In addition to that, during the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, OctoberNow is not charging any delivery costs for orders over Rs. 300. It is important that we come together to do what we can for each other, especially during periods of uncertainty like this.
Overall, OctoberNow offers a service that is high quality and focused on the convenience of the customer. The whole process, from start to finish, is catered to the customer’s needs and wants, ensuring that every single order is fulfilled and every customer is left satisfied. Many of the features of the OctoberNow app are new and fresh introductions to the Pakistani market, and hopefully, will set the foundation for advanced technological features to flourish in Pakistan in the future.
