Major Grocery App Features That You Should Not Miss While Developing One

by Jessica Bennett Tech Enthusiast Mobile and Web App

So you are thinking about how to build a grocery app that is going to solve everyone’s grocery shopping problem?

This means you already know how to make an app. But have you thought about all the features you absolutely need to develop your grocery app? Cause if you have not, then your app is not really going to help anyone with the nightmare that grocery shopping has become.

But in any case, if you have not thought about the features, then let us give you a few pointers.

Create A Shopping List

A shopping list is one universal thing we all forget. Even if you have diligently written one, you probably left it in the car.

So make sure to implement the feature of making a shopping list on your grocery app. It will make it easier for shoppers to remember what to buy when they are using your app. Bonus points if they can just upload their shopping list and automatically order all the things on their list.

You can also put in the neat feature of adding a meal plan option. Where users can add a dish and get a list of ingredients they would need to make that dish. This will not only help them to shop but also help the novice chefs to order the things they absolutely need to impress the guests with their culinary skills

Quick And Easy Search

None of us likes to walk through the long aisles of a grocery store with a shopping cart on tow.

No one also likes to work hard to search for something on an app. So do integrate a quick and easy search option into your app. It’ll be easy for the users to search for what they want, and the faster they can search it, the faster they will love your app.

Along with quick and easy search, you also need to precisely categorize the products. Trust us when we say no one wants to find fruits in the condiment aisle. So categorize the products correctly so that everyone can find their products easily.

A Favorite List

Adding a favorite list is another feature you absolutely need. Once the users have favorited a product, they can easily find it later on. This is a part of the quick and easy search.

With favorite list comes the feature of suggestions. Based on the favorite list, the app can suggest products to the users on the homepage, so that they don’t have to search too much for the things they need.

Multiple Payment Options

Add the multiple payment options to make payments seamless and easy for the users. With multiple payment options, the app users would find it easier to pay, just the way they want.

Also, make sure that the payment gateway is safe and secure. Build a strong backend so that the payment information of the users are not hacked. If they are then the reputation of the app can take a serious hit.

Order Tracking

Once the order is put through, let the customer track the order. This way they will get a sense of when they will get the delivery. It will be even better if they can schedule their own delivery according to their own schedule.


There are many more features like special deals and offers along with the push notifications. Implementing all the features may increase the app development cost but remember, all the above features are absolute necessities for your grocery app. So don’t even think about developing a grocery app without these features.
