That is just one of a number of incremental improvements that Raphael Afaedor and Gbolahan Fagbure, the founders emailed to inform TechCabal of.
There is a new and I have to say very sensible “reorder your basket” feature — you can re-order a previously purchased shopping basket with one click, instead of searching for and adding each item to the cart during each purchase. And it is possible to add/remove items before final checkout.
They’ve also added delivery windows — choose what time you want your stuff to come to you. Say, between 12 – 3pm or 3 – 6pm. Certainty is great not just for the consumer but also for Supermart because these are groceries we are talking about. You can return a phone to the shelf in the unfortunate event that the recipient is absent from the address. But carrots are not that durable.
I’m not a patron, but as far as I can tell, Supermart appears to be catching on with busy professionals on the Island. N800 for delivery in three-hours looks like great value.
Supermart still doesn’t deliver to the mainland yet, however. Finally, Supermart now delivers everywhere in Lagos, as I have just been informed [10/09/14].
Question for people that buy groceries online — what other features would you like to see on an a grocery website?
