ONLINE GROCERY SHOPPING TIPS

Online supermarkets in Malaysia have expanded in recent years, making grocery shopping so much easier. No more going through lines.

 

Buying groceries is really time consuming. From driving to the store, finding the products on the endless aisles, and driving back home, you can easily spend at least two hours of your entire day doing this.

 

Online grocery shopping in Malaysia has become increasingly easy. Just go online, sit, relax and begin looking for and picking your products. The best part is that everything is delivered to you, you don’t even have to leave the house.

 

When you buy groceries online, you will find the products you need fast, and even have the option to compare prices and brands.

 

You will not only save time but also save petrol and parking fees. All you need to do is sit back and let the supermarket do the work for you.

 

Here are some tips you can follow to make online shopping easier, more relaxing and more cost effective.

 

Make a list

For shopping groceries online, the first thing you need is a list. It’s very important to know what you want to buy before logging in. It is a good idea to plan your meals for the week so you know exactly what ingredients you need to buy. By doing this, you will be able to compare prices per unit in an easier way and save more money.

 

Another benefit of making a list is that it will avoid impulse buying. This will also help you in your next purchase, because your online grocery in Kuala Lumpur will keep a record of your groceries so you can shop much faster.

 

Know the Promotions

Most of the times, online grocery delivery in Malaysia is not free. But you can search for promotion codes and your groceries could be delivered your doorstep for free.

 

Online Grocery Delivery

It’s a good idea to make your order at least two days before you need your groceries, this way you can pick the delivery time and day. Most of the time you can schedule online delivery the next day; shopping earlier gives you more flexibility.

 

Another option when you buy online is to select the store pickup or locker option, especially if it's hard for you to be home at a specific time. With this option, you will buy groceries online and your order will be ready for pickup at the store / locker when you arrive. 

 

Fresh Products

When you buy fresh products online, such as pineapples, oranges, apples, bananas, lettuce, etc, keep in mind that in most cases you can get your money back (eCredit)  if it doesn’t meet your standards. This is especially true when you shop at MYDIN.

 

To those of you who haven’t tried out online grocery shopping, have a try and you’ll fall in love with it. It’s time for you to save money, save time and do online grocery shopping.
