Rise of Delivery Apps in the Philippines8 June 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic drastically changed our lives ever since it started. Most people are cooped up in the safety of their homes to prevent the further spread of the virus. Only the Authorized Persons Outside of Residence or APORs can go to and fro from different areas and places.
This is a monumental challenge, especially when we need to acquire our commodities and other home essentials.
Opportunely, various delivery business applications are already available in the Philippine market. They have become more in demand than before ever since this pandemic started. It dramatically helps some businesses to continue their operations while observing the minimum health protocol implemented by the government.

Afterward, you just have to wait for a rider to accept your booking, and you can even track your package in real-time.
Most customers expect to receive their packages as soon as possible after placing a purchase online. So, if you're a local business owner in Manila, MrSpeedy's same-day motorcycle delivery service is a must.

They also have delivery trucks for more oversized items.

They also have Cash on Delivery (Beta) that offer you the option of collecting cash from your recipient when the package is delivered. The rider will receive the item from you, give it to the receiver, collect the cash payment, then return it to you with the cash.
Food Panda is a delivery service app that delivers goodies and groceries to your door. The delivery service provides you with the best of both worlds: the comfort of your own home and delicious or fresh food from neighboring eateries or supermarkets.

What are Online Delivery Service tips for customers?
1. Review customer feedback
Before engaging yourself in any online services, it is a smart move as a responsible customer to check first the feedback of the services the business offer. Make sure to check both the positive and negative reviews from customers. More positive reviews, the better.
2. Early bird booking
This is especially important if you book for goodies or delicacies that need extra time for preparation. Sometimes the amount of time required for them to prepare the product depends on the demand they have for the day. The higher the demand, the earlier you should book for the service.
3. Make use of discount codes and promos.
Most delivery services these days give promos or discount codes to their customers on special days. Some even provide a reward program based on the customer's loyalty level or the number of times you used their services. So make sure to always check for their promo codes to save some money when availing of their delivery services.
4. Indicate instructions and keep in touch with the rider.
It is essential to keep your lines open whenever you are ordering a delivery service. This will help the rider to deliver your parcels faster and on time. It's also better to leave some instructions for the driver if you have some special requests, especially if the item they will deliver is fragile.
5. Check the available cashless payment options.
These days, most businesses encourage their customers to use cashless payments to minimize physical contact and have safer transactions while delivering their services. It will be best to check first the different cashless payment options they have and choose the one that fits you. Some of the cashless payment options that delivery aggregates use these days are GCash, AllEasy, and Paymaya, aside from credit and debit cards.
The rise of the delivery apps in the Philippines is a great aid, especially in helping our economy to still run even with the several lockdowns being implemented in the different parts of the country and the Metro.
We should just keep in mind to be a responsible customer in availing the services and at the same time, be grateful for the riders and drivers who work hard every day just to deliver our commodities and necessities safely directly in front of our doorsteps.
Lastly, let's support local businesses and download these delivery services apps now!
