I have personally use cash on delivery, Gcash, and credit card as payment. For credit cards and Gcash they will only charge you once the delivery is completed.

Pick-a-Roo app Advantages

  • What keeps me from using the app is that you can book your order ahead of time and get your order delivered at your preferred time and day.
  • It caters to my location which is outside of metro manila.
  • It has a good amount selection of grocery stores. I have tried to grocery shop through Robinsons Supermarket and S&R using the app.
  • They also offer same-day delivery and can deliver within an hour.
  • Delivery and Shoppers fee is at a reasonable price. It now starts at 48 pesos for delivery fee plus 68 pesos shoppers fee. It increases based on the distance from the store to the delivery location.
  • There’s a lot of premium stores available.

Pick-a-Roo app Disadvantage

  • Few instances I encounter with the Pick-a-Roo app is that there are few transactions where some items are not available. In that case, the shoppers notify me if there’s an available replacement for the item. This would be disappointing if you’re buying some medications that you might need and it’s out of stock.
  • For the grocery item prices, there are few items I notice that are a little more expensive than buying it yourself in the store but not all of it.
  • Tracking the location of the rider. I got used to Grab app where you can see the exact location of the rider but Pick a Roo doesn’t offer that feature yet. Though I never got any problem with the rider not finding my exact location.

Conclusion

Overall I am satisfied using the Pick-a-Roo app, I would continue using it especially during the times we are in right now. The app is very user-friendly and the transactions are always hassle-free.
