During the coronavirus pandemic, online food shopping has taken off, and its popularity shows no sign of waning. The benefits are clear – you can avoid human contact with potential coronavirus carriers, keep track of how much you are spending, and, better yet, you can do it all from the comfort of your bed.
From Ocado to Tesco and AmazonFresh, there are plenty of shopping sites online. But which supplier to choose? Whether you opt for a supermarket brand or an online-only retailer, there are some basic points to consider.
Same-day grocery delivery is a major bonus to an online food shopping site – although bear in mind that there may be a cut-off time to place your order. Most companies have a minimum spend, so consider this if you’re planning to buy a smaller selection. A varied food and drink offering is equally important, to achieve the weekly shop in one fell swoop.
Here we have appraised some of the major retailers’ websites and offerings, and compared the best online food shopping services going.
