MetroMart—a boon and a first for Philippine web-based store delivery services

In Uncategorized on June 11, 2016 at 7:19 am

One of the things that I’ve been hoping for is a good delivery service when it comes to buying groceries. I’m wheelchair-bound because of progressive multiple sclerosis, and need to plan my day to get things done. I have to find ways to continue to function. The key to this are strategy and efficiency. 

Stumbled upon MetroMart’s Facebook Page, and registered for the service. Was happy to find fresh produce, meat, and seafood from SM Supermarket.

Everything you need to know is on the FAQ page. 

The user interface is pretty straightforward.

They currently cater to Makati, Taguig, Mandaluyong, and Pasig, and charge a ₱40 delivery fee per store. So if you buy something from Eric Kayser, Babci and Benefit, that’s ₱40 (3) = ₱120. Or if you buy groceries only from one store like SM Markets, that would be ₱40 in addition to the total cost reflected in your Check-out page. That fee is waived for first-time deliveries.

Their friendly and highly interactive customer representative will keep you updated based on the instructions you’ve specified on the Check-out page.

The prices reflect store prices. And if the price varies, you may elect to be informed about it, or give them the authority to purchase the goods (or their substitute) immediately.

I purchased meat and fresh produce, and was immediately informed about availability and change in prices.

MetroMart personnel was helpful and efficient. And the shopper selected the good stuff.

Very happy with the outcome. Will definitely use their services again.

MetroMart is an enabling service for people like me with mobility concerns. I can get things done in a way that is affordable, and doesn’t cause too much stress (especially since I’m trying to recover from a nasty relapse).
