As Jamaicans living in the diaspora, we know how important it is to stay connected to our roots and support our families back home.
However, sometimes sending money or care packages can be a hassle, and we may not always know what our loved ones need.
That’s where GroceryList Jamaica comes in – an all-in-one, on-demand, online grocery ordering system that allows customers within the diaspora to shop for food, household, and personal items online for their loved ones back home in Jamaica.
GroceryList Jamaica was launched in May 2022 and is available in 14 parishes across Jamaica, connected to over 150 stores with 800 personal shoppers.
The platform also offers a user-friendly GroceryList App for seamless grocery shopping on the go. CEO Rory Richards expressed his excitement about the platform, saying “Now, with GroceryList Jamaica, persons in the diaspora can spend up to $15,000 USD to buy food products and household needs all from our app.”
The platform operates in real-time and facilitates same-day shopping deliveries for its users under a shared economy model.
Once customers place an order on the website or app, it is sent to a personal shopper stationed in one of their partner supermarkets in Jamaica, who fulfills/completes orders for local in-store pickup and delivery.
This means that customers can trust that their loved ones are receiving high-quality products at affordable prices, while also supporting local businesses.
What’s more, GroceryList Jamaica has recently launched its Buy Now Pay Later feature, making it even easier for diaspora members to send food and household products to their families back home without worrying about the immediate cost.
With this new feature, customers can make purchases and pay for them in installments over several weeks or months. The payment system is designed to make it easier for diaspora members to support their families in Jamaica, regardless of their location in the world.
Using GroceryList Jamaica is a great way to stay connected to your loved ones in Jamaica, while also supporting the local economy. By purchasing food and household products through the platform, customers can rest assured that their families are receiving high-quality products at affordable prices, without worrying about the hassle of shipping or carrying items.
Overall, GroceryList Jamaica is an innovative solution that offers convenience, affordability, and a way to support local businesses. Whether you’re looking to send a care package to your family in Jamaica, or simply want to make sure they have access to the best products, GroceryList Jamaica is the perfect platform for you.
