Dear MEL Topic Readers
A supermarket is offering to deliver groceries to your fridge while you're out
What is the last part of the process of purchasing? Online retailers offer customers easy and convenient shopping experience on either smartphone or PC whenever and wherever they are. Prices are very competitive with or even predatory to brick-and-mortar supermarkets or discounters. Payment is done automatically from the registered bank account, credit card or online payment service, such as PayPal, WeChat Pay or Ali Pay. So, what could deter customers from buying online, or choose one shopping site from others?
Patience. One survey found that online shoppers don’t want to be home just to wait for deliveries. Seems to make sense, doesn’t it? If you or both of you work during the day and get home late, there is no chance to receive a delivery. On weekends, you may want to go out to meet your friends, do any leisure activities, or simply not to be bothered by anyone at all.
So, what about having the deliverer leave the delivery items inside the door or even in the fridge? With a smart lock, you don’t have to worry about being intruded by someone else other than the scheduled deliverer. But will that be an ultimate convenience or annoyance?
The next step could be to have the deliverer prepare your dinner or feed your pet.
