Benefits of online grocery shopping

Online grocery shopping? What is it? Does it sound like a foreign term to you? Well you don’t need to think much, it’s exactly as the name says, shopping for groceries online.

Here are the benefits of online grocery shopping and why you should consider ordering your daily items over the internet:

1. Get groceries from the comfort of your home

This is most probably the biggest benefit of online grocery shopping. You won’t need to get out of your home, drive the car, find a parking spot, walk up and down searching for the products and queue up for a long time. Instead, you can easily turn on either your phone or your computer, add the products to your cart, pay for the products and voila! Now, just sit back and wait for the products to be delivered to you. This is especially helpful if you have little kids, and it might be a hassle to bring them out grocery shopping, or if you are super busy with work.

2. Keep track of what you’re spending

We all get the impulse to add a little something extra into our cart when we see it at the store. These impulse purchases of ours may even end up more than our initial purchase. When you shop online, you can easily keep track of what you’re spending on and avoid impulse purchases because your cart is visible at all times. Online shopping helps keep you in track, so you won’t go over your budget and spend a little too much on something.

By the way, it’s also childproof as kids aren’t able to add anything they want to the shopping cart as they can do in the stores (very important factor, yes mummies?).

3. Saves time from walking up and down the aisle

Isn’t it frustrating when you’re already at the counter paying for stuff when you realise you forgot the eggs? Then you have to rush down the aisles like a mad person trying to find the eggs, and on your way back, make sure you don’t crack a single one. Shopping online reduces those type of mistakes: with only a few clicks, you can add an item to your cart and you are good to go. Saves you from making those embarrassing trips down the aisle a few hundred times.

Take advantages of these benefits by shopping with Online Pasar! We have more than 500 products ranging from fresh vegetables, fruits, eggs, meat & poultry, dim sum, bread & buns etc for you to shop your heart out. Click here to browse our products:

Your traditional ‘pasar’ is now online

Guess what? Your traditional ‘pasar’ is now online.

“Whattttt?” you may wonder. Where will I get my cheap vegetables or my fresh fruits now?

It is true, that Malaysian pasars are filled with a variety of products for the everyday consumer.  The products there are cheaper compared to most commercial supermarkets. At a pasar, the  fruits and vegetables somehow seem more fresh and vibrant. The fishes at the fish mongers somehow seem to still be moving. It is surely a pleasant sight to see Malaysian culture alive in the pasar.

However, there is the blistering heat of the sun as it shines down on both the shoppers and the sellers. Even though you may bring a small fan or a hat along, the heat still gets to you. The worse time is when you may need to line up for a certain stall, and you will be lining up in the hot sun, with dozens of people in front of you. Along with the heat, there is the crowd. People pushing against each other to get to their destinations. Everyone will be carrying their heavy load of  goods, and the plastic bags will be scratching against you. Ouch!

Sometimes too, your own personal schedule might not fit with the pasars timetable. You may want to go to the pasar because of the cheap stuff, but you may only be free during their closing hours, which is when many vendors would have closed and not much is left for you to choose from. To get the best goods, you would need to get there early, might even need to wake up early in the morning.

Avoid the crowd, heat & queue and shop from the comfort of your home with Online Pasar.

Well, worry no more about getting up early, or the tough crowds, or the blistering heat, because there is Online Pasar. What is Online Pasar you may ask? Online Pasar is an online grocer that provides most of your usual pasar items, ranging from fresh vegetables, fruits, kampung eggs, kampung chicken, seafood, meat, dim sum, bread & bun etc. They provide next-day delivery to all addresses within the Klang Valley for just a RM5 delivery fee. What’s better, the minimum order is just RM60 – perfect for a small family – and you can receive a full refund for damaged items within 2 days. Compare that to the traditional pasar: no refund, and even if there is, you’d have to make a second trip all the down to the same pasar to the same stall!

Isn’t that awesome? Shop with Online Pasar is still shop at the pasar, just that it is now online.

Online Pasar has more than 500 over products for you to shop for. We provide next-day delivery to all addresses within Klang Valley for RM5 only. Please note that we do not deliver on Sundays and Public Holidays.

How to save money while shopping for grocery online

How to save money while shopping for grocery online

Have you ever wondered how to save money while shopping for groceries online? Now you may think that online grocery shopping is time-consuming, difficult and expensive, but it is actually quite the opposite. It saves you time, is easy-to-use, and with all the promotions and coupons, it can end up even cheaper than going to the physical store for your groceries.

Here are some tips to save both time and money while shopping for your groceries online:

1. Check for Deals

As what you would do at a physical store, check the website for their latest deals. Don’t be surprised, for you may find some really awesome deals there that you might not even find in the supermarket.

If you are interested in our Bundle Deals, view them here:

To give you an idea of how much you can save, you can get 30 omega eggs for just RM15, compare this to the usual market price of RM19.50 (RM6.50 for tray of 10), that’s a whopping 30% cost-saving!

In addition to that, you can also enjoy our daily RM1 promotion where you can either get a whole pineapple, or a jar of homemade kaya with just RM1!)

2. Purchase Frozen meat over Fresh meat

It is a common perception that fresh meat is healthier than frozen meat. However, did you know that the nutritional value of both meats are the same, and sometimes, frozen meat can be even more nutritious? That is because, frozen meat is flash frozen within hours after it leaves the slaughterhouse, and because the meat is still fresh during the time of freezing, it is able to retain its nutritional values. Frozen meat can also be stored in the refrigerator for much longer periods than fresh meat.

Frozen meat tends to be cheaper than fresh meat because it is easier to store and transport the meat, resulting in a lower logistics cost. So don’t be afraid to purchase frozen meat!

3. Look into a delivery plan

Instead of paying delivery fees for every order made, it would be cheaper to have an annual grocery delivery plan, if you know you will be purchasing online groceries for quite a while. In the end, it may be cheaper than going to the store physically as you will not need to spend on personal travel expenses. You would also be saving your energy from going up and down the supermarket, trying to find something and what is worse than that, realising it is out of stock by the time you arrive at the shelf.

4. Combine and place your order with a neighbour

If delivery pass is not something you are keen in getting, you can consider sharing the items and delivery fee with your neighbours. As you are already aware, most products are much cheaper if you buy them in bulk. Consider buying from the same grocer with a neighbour and split the bill! Everyone needs food and groceries afterall! When you do this, you are saving not just 1, but 2 people’s time and energy! Grocery-shopping is a (weekly) repeating task – imagine how much time, energy and money you can save.   

5. Subscribe to Newsletters and receive updates through social media platforms

One great way to get exclusive deals or first-hand news about promotions and offers would be to subscribe to your grocer’s newsletters. To reward loyal customers, online grocers normally inform their existing customer of any limited-time offers or exclusive deals. They may also blast our interesting information about their new products on their social media like Facebook or Instagram.  

If you want to be in the know, we highly encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter service and follow us on Facebook to discover the latest promotions and receive exclusive coupon codes. There, we will keep you updated on the latest sales we are having, the newest products we have in stock, and we will even share tips on grocery shopping, cooking recipes and all things grocery-related.
