Delishop.Asia introduces contactless grocery delivery

With much of the world adapting to new hygiene practices and social distancing amid the Covid-19 pandemic, online grocery store Delishop.Asia has introduced a contactless delivery service and online payment options.

With a catalogue of 9,000 products and staff following strict hygiene practices as recommended by the World Health Organisation, customers can rest assured their grocery items will arrive on the doorstep free of the virus.

Delishop.Asia general manager Jonathan Meuret says: “The sudden and rapid spread of Covid-19 has forced everyone to scale back on many social interactions and transactions we used to take for granted.

“The simple act of going outside to buy food and other essential items at a store now requires more thought and precaution. Every day, our team is energised to keep coming up with new solutions to execute safe deliveries and transactions.”

At Delishop.Asia, its safe delivery strategy begins at the procurement stage. Staff practice social distancing, use sanitisers before delivery, and regularly check their body temperature.

All inventory crates used in deliveries are washed and disinfected regularly, as is the Delishop.Asia warehouse.

Employees and delivery partners with any symptoms of sickness are encouraged to self-isolate at home and reach out for any urgent medical assistance.

Once an order is hygienically packaged, a delivery partner will take it to a customer’s given address.

The delivery partner will notify the customer that they have arrived and will place the order, sealed in bags, at a location designated by the customer. The delivery partner will wait for the customer to pick up the package while standing a few metres away.

Customers can pay while placing the order at the time of checkout. They can also pay in cash, or online via Wing or ABA QR Code. To promote cashless payment options, Delishop.Asia’s online payment partners are offering an array of discounts and cashback incentives.

“Delishop.Asia adheres to socially responsible business practices and precautionary measures that ensure everyone’s safety.

“Through contactless delivery and online payment options, we are preventing any virus transmission by significantly reducing interactions between customers and delivery partners,” says Meuret.

Delishop.Asia provides fast delivery of grocery products, food and beverage, cosmetics and other fast-moving consumer goods from more than 40 suppliers.

To avail of its services, Meuret says customers must order grocery items worth at least $10 on Delishop.Asia’s website: https://delishop.asia/. The delivery charge is $1. Orders above $50 are free of delivery charges, he says.
