Philippines is becoming a more app driven market. From personal ride-sharing service to banking and finance.
Now, a Singapore-based smartphone app has come to the Philippines. The app intends to provide different services such as doing groceries, laundry pickups, and even food delivery from a favorite restaurant.
Starting with grocery services, honestbee, started its operation in Metro Manila following their success in key Asian cities Singapore, Taipei, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Niseko and Tokyo.
honestbee has trained grocery concierge who handpicks the freshest produce at in-store prices, while looking out for expiration dates and suggesting the most suitable substitutes. The service on the app is customer-centric, and there is room to leave specific instructions for the items to be purchased.
Deliveries, which are marked for two hours, are from 10am to 8pm daily, subject to store operating hours, including weekends and public holidays.
There is a P150 concierge or shopper fee. Free delivery is offered for a minimum spend of ₱1,500. Otherwise, a delivery fee of ₱99 applies.
Offering a very unique service from other grocery store delivery services, honestbee does not stockpile goods in a warehouse. Instead, it delivers the items listed on the app from their chosen partner merchants such as Robinsons Supermarket, Solo Meat Group, Fresh Options Meat Shop, G-stuff, Foodsource, AWC and Boozy PH.
Customers can even shop from multiple stores in one order and still get their items delivered in two hours.
In addition to its grocery services, honestbee also offers laundry pick-up and delivery (including dry-cleaning) and soon set to have delivery from its premium partner restaurants.
The app is available for free download on the Apple or Google Play Store. To start using it, simply register and click on the confirmation email, tag location, pick out the items or services they need, and wait for the delivery within two hours. The app can be used on iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, over mobile or Wi-Fi connections. Desktop is also available for Groceries.
