How to create your own on-demand grocery app like Dunzo 


If you are looking to create your own on-demand grocery app like Dunzo, be sure to add these features to the app and develop a user-friendly app. 

Sign in and on boarding

Keep it as simple as possible is important. Users see multiple step sign in as a hassle. Avoid that and keep a simple signing up process. Allow users to browse through the app as a guest and only require sign in when purchasing items. 

Add Location

Let users manually enter their location to avoid errors and check if the service is available in their area. Sometimes automatic sensing can be inaccurate and will leave problems for the delivery person and customer. Avoid this by making sure you have automatic and manual options for feeding in the user’s location. 

Listed view of stores

The stores that are listed on your platform should be categorically visible to the user. The more specific their search result  is, the better it is for user experience. 

Listed view of in-stock products

Availability and in-stock items should be clearly visible. You don’t want people ordering out of stock items only to be disappointed later. 

Simple navigation

One of the best practices for UI is having a simple interface which is easy to navigate through. The buttons are placed correctly, all details mentioned at the right place etc. Keep it simple so that anyone can use it pretty effortlessly. 

Stellar but simple UI

The font, colors, design etc on the graphic design part, should be visually stunning at the same time simple enough to use and accomplish the task you set out to do on the app.

  1. Commission on each order 
  2. Delivery Fees 
  3. User membership fees 
  4. Surge Pricing when needed 

Create a terrific supply chain 

Ensure your supply chain is efficient and quick. If you are looking to develop an app like Dunzo, supply chain is crucial in maintaining the quality of service. To keep the promise of quick delivery, lay out the chain in a way that makes the process smooth and with minimal error. 

Hire and equip the delivery persons 

Another important step in creating a business of on-demand grocery delivery, is hiring enough delivery persons and giving them the right technology and equipment to help them carry out the task. The app should have all details about the order placed, location and mode of payment of the customer.

Delivery guys should also be trained to handle difficult situations and be polite to customers. After the app interface, delivery persons interact directly with the customers and the many interactions that happen can make or break your brand. 

Develop a customer care
