During lockdown due to the covid-19 pandemic, the world's seen an increase for on-demand alcohol delivery service. Before the coronavirus pandemic, far fewer businesses were serving their customers through on-demand alcohol delivery apps and e-commerce platforms. But alcohol stores with no online presence, shut their operations and failed to sell a single unit. Building an app for your liquor store business isn't important just because of this lockdown era, it's just accelerated the need for your business to digitally transform.
Must-have features for your alcohol delivery application
Some of these are essential (and apply to all on-demand delivery apps), others will help your app stand out from the rest of the market.
User account Like any other on-demand delivery app, yours should let customers sign up or login using an email and password. As well as verifying their identity, it helps you to build brand loyalty with your customer base.
Search This allows your app users to browse your product listing on your app. Utterly essential.
Filters Working with the key feature above, this lets people filter their search results. Your filters could be brand name, price, drink categories, product availability, most popular, or something else. It's completely up to you.
Shopping cart Your customers can add or remove bottles from their cart and then place an order instantly or at a later date.
In-app payment Getting paid is obviously essential! Modern apps don’t just don’t need an in-app payment system but a multi-payment mode.
Order tracking The ability to tracking delivery time is important too because your customers want to get their favorite drinks delivered as soon as possible. How about allowing them to track their order delivery live?
This depends on where you are in the world. It’s perfectly legal in plenty of countries while others have banned it, so you’ll need to check your local laws before you launch. (And again, if you’re planning on expanding globally, later on.)
