ONLINE GROCERY SHOPPING & DELIVERY | CUSTOMER UI FLOW
In order to enhance user experience, our software solution- Grocer comes with several striking features that are at par with the top grocery delivery apps. The add-on features make our BigBasket & HappyFresh clone app stand out. Check out the customer flow chart here
Interactive Home Page
Users will be provided with a list of stores based on their location, and products’ searches. They can see ‘recommended’ & ‘open’ stores, and can also create a list of their ‘favorite stores’. Special badges will reflect against stores that follow the highest safety standards
Explore Stores & Products
Users can search for a variety of products and/or for a particular store they want to shop from. The system search algorithm will return matching products along with the stores’ availability. They will also get options for a substitute product, in case the selected product runs out of stock.
Lightning Fast Search
Our multi-store grocery shopping software leverages ElasticSearch to enable super-fast search and filtering from a huge catalog. This provides a seamless user experience, besides shortening the sales cycle.
Users will get multiple filtering options. They can apply the same based on their preferences. All products search will be sorted out based on ratings & reviews, availability, price, etc.
Detailed Product Description
Users will get a descriptive view of products in our online grocery delivery app solution. This will help them better understand the product attributes – price, color, manufacturer, etc.
Product Availability Notifications
As products will have specific inventories added on the CMS panel, users will be notified about the availability of a product, during checkout. Similar products can be generated using a machine learning algorithm, based on buying patterns of users.
To enhance the user experience, our multi-store grocery shopping software allows customers to shop & order from a variety of stores, at the same time! They can add or delete items, and can also view total savings on every purchase. Users can also schedule a preferred time for the delivery.
Checkout & Payment
After confirming the order & delivery address, users can choose from multiple payment options (credit/debit cards, COD, app wallet) in our online grocery delivery app software. If a store does not deliver in a particular area/zone, users can either cancel the order or change the address.
The real-time tracking will help users to know each detail- from the time the order gets picked, to the completion of the delivery. In case a product is unavailable, the picker/delivery agent will inform the users, and the latter can immediately opt for a substitute, or cancel the item.
The whole list of past and present orders will be visible to users, in the grocery shopping software. Orders can be filtered based on several parameters (months, years). Orders that are purchased from multiple stores, will be tracked separately.
The grocery store application is an excellent tool for store owners/product sellers to manage & dispatch orders to customers. The home page shows a list of tabs where a new order; orders that are ready for pickup, checkout & delivery- all are displayed in an organized way.
View All Order Details
As and when a new order arrives, the owner gets notified in the grocery delivery software. They can see all necessary details like the customer details, the contents of the order, the selected mode of payment, etc.
Assign A Picker
After accepting the order, the store owner can either pick-up the items himself or assign a picker. Detailed order picking stages will be displayed in various tabs for real-time, quick updates.
Order Picking Stages
A detailed update: ‘Not Picked‘; ‘Picked‘ for products that are scanned to auto pick or force picked manually. ‘In Review‘ for products that require confirmation.
‘Removed‘ for products that are deleted from the cart.
Suggest Substitute Products
The store owner has the option to update the customer about products that are unavailable or are out of stock. A substitute product will be suggested, and on approval by the customer, they can continue with the further processes.
ORDER PICK-UP UPDATES
When an order is ready for pickup, the customer is informed immediately. The store owner can auto dispatch the orders or manually assign a driver (in the case of store drivers) for deliveries.
Bag Label Printing
During checkout, the cashier will generate a receipt after scanning all the items. The receipt must be uploaded to the app. The picker will then confirm the no. of bags & print labels for each bag. These will be tied to the order & scanned by the driver at the time of delivery.
ORDER Delivery UPDATES
Once the shopping process ends, the store owner shall receives all updates on this tab. He can eventually update the customer about the estimated time of all order deliveries.
GROCERY DELIVERY | DRIVER APP FLOW
Our multi-vendor grocery delivery app software facilitates order delivery either via freelance drivers (the ones who can pick-up items & deliver from multiple stores), or specific store drivers. Check out the driver app flow chart here
A store driver will be assigned the job directly, but freelance drivers will receive notifications on the app which they can accept or reject. The drivers will have the option to mark themselves available or unavailable as per their preference.
Since drivers can deliver grocery orders at multiple addresses, they can provide updates both to the store owners/managers and the customers, all the same time! The real-time updates ensure seamless communication between drivers, store owners, and customers.
proof of pickup
The driver will have to scan the unique bar code on each bag to confirm its pickup. This process will also help to understand if the driver has picked up the right order.
Once the driver is assigned a job, he can visit the stores and starts picking up the items. He can undergo multiple pickups from various stores(and for different customers). During the delivery, he can directly send real-time updates to the customers.
Proof Of Delivery
The grocery delivery will be considered complete only after he has taken the signature of the customer. In case of contactless delivery, the drivers can take snaps of the bag left at the doorstep, as a sign of proof.
The driver can reattempt for a delivery, in case the customer is unavailable. He is allowed to do the same for other reasons as well and has to provide valid reasons, in order to inform the system admin about the reattempt.

All our products can be scaled vertically and horizontally. All the backend components can be dockerized and clustered. Our products are built to support 100’s of thousands of users. A good solid server infrastructure as shown below is a good example of a configuration built for scale.
We are deeply inspired by the popular apps we create CLONE PRODUCTS off but we by no means acquire any source code from any of these awesome companies and products.
We have taken strong and definitive steps to ensure we don’t step any legal boundaries with any other popular product. We use the word CLONE mostly as a marketing trick and we in NO WAY reverse engineer any app to make our products. All our products have been built ground up in the company.
We have also taken steps to ensure we add unique flavors into the product to guarantee they stand out in the market-place. We have also ensured we put in unique UI elements so that it does not look exactly the same as any other popular product.
Most secure app infrastructure in the market where security extends from the mobile app to the API’s.
- Use of keychain on iOS and Android to store all credentials.
- All API’s are secured with a wildcard SSL certificate.
- Use of JWT and JWE for securing all API’s.
- Load Balancer supported for horizontal scaling.
- All customer data on the server is encrypted using 128 bit AES encryption.
- Tele call between patient and healthcare professional is via secure WebRTC which is running on a secure WebRTC gateway which in-turn is running on a on-premise ( self hosted or cloud hosted ) server infrastructure.
- Rate limit API and controller access to minimize the harm from automated attack tooling.
- App secured from any DB injection.
- App protected from clickjacking protection, XSS, MIME-Sniffing, HSTS, HPKP or set the CORS settings.
- Security headers are enabled.
- Scripts are not deployed with default credentials, particularly for admin users.
- Uses a server-side, secure, built-in session manager that generates a new random session ID with high entropy after login. Session IDs should not be in the URL. Ids should also be securely stored and invalidated after logout, idle, and absolute timeouts.
- JWT tokens are invalidated on the server after logout.
At the time of writing this page we have no RESELLERS of our products. We also don’t allow any of our customers to re-sell the product once they acquire it from us. We do share the source code of the product with our customers but we provide them with a perpetual license which is bound by a contract that we sign when we are issued a purchase order. There is no license key in our software products but the legal contract that we sign prohibits our customers from re-selling our source code to any one else.
We built Appscrip.com with a mission to accelerate your journey to become an entrepreneur. Every entrepreneur’s dream is to be acquired for multi million dollars and therefore we in no way prohibit you from selling your company to anybody else. The perpetual license will be transferred to the company that acquires your company and the same rules from point (4) will apply to that company as well.
We sign NDA with our clients to ensure we don’t disclose their idea to anybody else. We usually have a product road map and all our products have a rate card that details what features we have on them and what are coming out soon. Anything outside that list can be protected with an NDA that we readily agree to sign. Therefore, your idea is perfectly safe with us.
We provide free patches for bugs on our core products for a year after purchase. These patches are supplied via GIT pushes to your source code repository. We however don’t do the actual code merge etc for you as that would cost us man hours.
We have paid support plans available. We know our apps best so for most of our customers it makes a lot of sense to hire our team for support. We have different support packages available depending on the SLA required ( Service Level Agreements).
Logically thinking if you do buy our app and you want to customize it, there is no better team than ours to do it for you since we have developed all the underlying base code.
We have the biggest range of pre-built business applications in the market that cover several business models. We built all these products with the sole aim of reducing time to market and cost to market for our customers.
On average it costs over $100,000 to build most of these products that we have, so using them as a base to build your customized business idea will definitely bring your costs and time down significantly.
Most custom software development companies pitch you a full project plan to develop a product from scratch, a process that might take months and cost you pot loads of money, where-as we pull something out from our repotriotire, customize it and voila we have you a product in let’s say 60 days 🙂
In case you do have an idea that is not similar to any of our pre-built products we can surely develop something totally custom, from scratch for you. We will try to re-use some of the micro-services and reusable software components to do some rapid application development.
We have done this successfully for large corporations who have raised multi million dollars in venture capital funds. Our team comes with a strong technical expertise in a broad range of technologies that cover:
- API Development – GoLang, Node.JS, Python, Elixir (Erlang)
- App Development – iOS ( Swift, Objective C) , Android (Java, Kotlin), Flutter, React Native
- Web Application Development – React.JS, AngularJS 9.0, Next.JS, Vue.JS
- Data Science & Analytics – Apache Kafka, Apache Spark, Apache Flink, Hadoop
- Blockchain- Hyperledger
- Desktop Application – Electron JS
The major costs involved for running applications of such nature are as follows:
- Server costs for hosting the API’s and Database – A decent configuration on AWS / Azure / Google / Digitalocean will cost you anywhere between $150-$200/month.
- Content Delivery Network – Apps such as these require the content to be delivered seamlessly with low latency and low bandwidth consumption. We use a CDN to ensure we are doing image / video transformations to maintain content quality at different network speeds and different devices.
- Text messages for verification codes – We generally use Twilio for sending text messages. The price for this depends on the country and can be tracked here @ https://www.twilio.com/pricing.
- Transactional emails – We generally use services like Sendgrid, Mailgun or Amazon SES for sending transactional emails. All these services usually have a free tier that should hold good for new apps.
- SSL – We secure all our apps via a Wildcard SSL certificate that secures all sub domains for a particular domain name. This is important for security. A pretty affordable place to get one will be here @ https://www.ssl2buy.com/alphassl-wildcard.php
- Cloudflare – We use Cloudflare as a firewall and also often to manage the domain. It has a free tier and that usually is good enough. If under attack like maybe a DDOS attack , Cloudflare can prove to be a pretty solid first layer of defence.
- Google Map API – We use google map api’s for tagging locations with a post and also for sharing locations inside the chat. A google map API key with billing enabled is required to use this service.
- Apple Developer Account – An apple developer account is required to host the app under your name. An account costs $99/year. Individual accounts are pretty easy to create but if you need the app to show under your company name then you will need to apply for a company account and that requires a DUNS number that you will need to first acquire to get listed as a developer with apple. Follow steps here @ https://learn.buildfire.com/en/articles/477266-how-to-create-an-apple-developer-account-and-enroll-in-the-program
- Google Play Developer Account – A google play developer account is required to host an app under your name / your company’s name on the Android play store. This costs $25 one time. You can get a google play developer account here @ https://play.google.com/apps/publish/signup/#EnterDetailsPlace.
- Domain Name – A domain name is required to host the API’s / website etc. A domain name can be bought from sources like GoDaddy etc. Price of a domain name really depends on its availability etc.
