Online grocery shopping is not a new concept; however, this particular niche of ecommerce industry is yet to reach its full potential. The good thing is that online grocery shopping sector has picked up some pace in recent times and has garnered the well-deserved attention from entrepreneurs, seasoned offline store owners, and customers alike. And it is apparent in the success of various online grocery businesses across the world – to name a few, Instacart, BigBasket, FreshDirect, Thrive Market, Redmart, and others.
In the US, more than 25% of online shoppers have already opted for grocery shopping on the internet, and the number is expected to go up to 55% in coming years.
Furthermore, the number of online grocers is increasing at a 3x rate with each year, and the entire online grocery industry is growing at a remarkable rate of 11%.
To keep up with the pace, aspiring entrepreneurs need a reliable solution to put their dreams in motion. It is better to go with a dedicated script for online grocery stores that doesn’t require an array of plugins to get your business up & running. On the other hand, building a store from scratch or using a non-dedicated script cost more time, money, and effort.
Developed by FATbit Technologies, Growcer is one such dedicated script for setting up grocery shopping websites, which is loaded with rich features and comes at a reasonable price. Below we will see various benefits of opening online grocery store with Growcer.
Growcer is a turnkey solution especially built for grocery shopping websites. With plenty of research invested in making Growcer a practical solution, we made sure each online grocery shop built on Growcer delivers:
1. Great User Experience We all know that businesses thrive & stand out of the competition by delivering customers a richer user experience. Grocery shopping websites built on Growcer score quite well in that area. Whether it is the store owner or the end customers, for every user, using the website is as easy as it gets.
2. Marketing Features A huge disadvantage with building a website from the scratch is that you need to research for each and every feature that could be helpful in your business’s success. Moreover, integrating these features with your grocery shopping website would consume only more resources. Growcer, on the other hand, is developed keeping all the important elements in mind, marketing included. We have done all the hard-work, so that you don’t have to.
