Online Grocery Apps You Can Use to Order Your Supplies to Stay Home

According to a report shared by the UAE’s state news agency, WAM, the online stores in the list include large shopping centers and cooperatives, in addition to grocery stores, meat and vegetable shops, and other services.

The beginning of 2020, according to the UAE government has seen solid activity in the online shopping sector, indicating a high demand from consumers to shop on the internet.  

Moreover, online stores have witnessed higher demand in the past weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic that caused consumers to stay at home and order online.

A 2020 Ministry of Economy report forecasted that online consumption is expected to increase in the coming months, raising the value of online commerce to more than $19.77 million this year.

Based on the results of an online survey carried out by the Department of Economic Development in Dubai last year showed that 66 percent of its participants trust online shopping while 70 percent trust online payments.

The UAE has been tagged as one of the leading countries in terms of having developed communications and digital services infrastructure, and the majority of its official and private institutions are adopting solutions to provide services based on technological solutions, whether through smartphones or social media.

Accordingly, online food and beverage sales in the UAE recorded a cumulative annual growth of 21 percent from 2015 to 2018, according to data prepared by Wilson, the strategic market research company, which gathers and analyses sales data.

Because of the current situation, the online commerce in the country could grow to over USD 19.77 million in 2020, as per a report issued by the Ministry of Economy of the UAE.

Here is a shortlist of purchasing apps included in the ‘Online Grocery’:
