Why do we need a Delivery App.?
Times change and so do practices. Earlier we walked and bought things. Then we used our own vehicles and bought them. But now we order and buy the things we need from home using mobile phones through the internet. The advantage is that we don’t have to spend our time traveling to reach the shops.
If we order our favorite products from our favorite shops from our residence/ workplace, the product arrives at our desired location very quickly. Applications that can be called “delivery apps” and their technologies have made this possible for us. Some companies first implemented the facility of delivering our favorite food from our favorite restaurant. They are Swiggy, Zomato, UberEats etc. Now it has expanded a lot. We can buy groceries, vegetables-fruits, medicines, fish-meat etc from where we are through “Delivery Apps’. This is a new market; it is a market that is growing very fast and very extensive. You can see more about it in this article.
In today’s era, people buy a variety of things through delivery apps
They make purchases. People are ordering daily essentials mainly through delivery apps. This includes so-called “fresh items” such as vegetables, fruits, fish, chicken, mutton etc., groceries/spices and pharmaceuticals.
Already, delivery app systems like Zwiggy and Zomato are occupying tier-one and tier-two cities. We should know that very soon this industry will occupy all kinds of towns and villages. Even in cities like Nagercoil, people are gradually shifting to the habit of buying their daily food and daily needs through delivery apps in their respective cities.
Various factors determine the future of the “Delivery App Industry Culture”. One of them is the growing ‘use of technology‘. Current technology delivers the delivery industry culture through its best efficiency to customers at low cost, and without wasting time. Other factors are the increase in high-speed internet access and the increase in the sales of smartphones. Rising “economic growth and population growth” and “rising income levels” are the reasons behind this. Together, the two are fueling the growth of India’s online food and grocery delivery market.
How does the delivery app work?
Delivery App companies like Swiggy, Zomato simply take responsibility for delivery. But, they have freelance delivery agents. Customers fulfill their daily food needs through this delivery app. Similarly, companies like Big Basket and Zepto deliver instant delivery of groceries, vegetables, fruits and medicines to the customers as per the needs of the customers.
Key Benefits of Delivery App.

Swiggy & Zomato
The “platform-to-consumer delivery” category accounts for three-fourths of the total market. The Swiggy and Zomato dominate the sector. These two giants occupy 65% of the sector.
As of October 2018, Zomato’s delivery team is 74,000, while Swiggy’s is 90,000. Both the companies are expanding their businesses to big and small cities.
We experience that Swiggy and Zomato are not forecast only for food delivery but also entering into other deliveries such as groceries, vegetables, fruits and medicines. Swiggy instamart is a good example for their projected future ventures. The Flipkart Supermarket is another example of how such business giants are entering into the retail markets.

‘Multi-vendors Multi-products’ Selling Apps
In which the app owner is one but the sellers are multiple. Think of it as an Online Shopping Complex or an Online Shopping Mall. Customers can find their favorite products from their favorite stores through this app. The DunZo app is a good example of this.
DunZo and other apps are ‘centralized apps‘. Whereas a ‘decentralized app‘ called Webbazar is currently entering the field. In Webbazar, central authority is automated. Therefore, peripheral or small activists such as product owners and customers are able to operate independently.
They directly interact with their respective regional customers through their regional delivery agents to sell their own authentic fresh products. Since, third parties are denied and restricted in this, customers are able to buy fresh and authentic products of their regions at reasonable prices.
Webbazar and Zaka Coins
Webbazar is a ‘Community Driven Project or organization’. However, it is not like other institutions which belong to a central authority or LP an individual. Obviously, the technology used to run the business is Web-III/ Blockchain. Eventually, which requires a computer language like Solidity etc. Also a money transfer medium that can work over the internet is required for every business transaction.
Therefore, a digital currency called Zaka Coins (Cryptocurrency) enter the field by to act as a medium of exchange. It is also used across borders as a medium of exchange between sellers, distribution agents and customers. The boundaries of the Internet are its boundaries, not any country.
Applications operating in regional territories
Currently, delivery apps like Swiggy, Zomato, DunZo, Blinkit, Fresh to Home only operate in big cities. Hence, regional apps have come into existence in small towns and villages.
In Kanyakumari district there are three important apps that work like that. One is “Snowch” another is “MShop” and the third one is “PothysMart“. Apart from them, Webbazar’s “DawnFish” App for selling high-quality marine fish has also entered the market of Nagercoil.
