It was a day prior to the Ashtami Pooja at home when my mom asked me to accompany her for vegetables and fruits shopping. Since there were preparations going on in the house for the big Ashtami Pooja after eight days of long fasting, i decided to go the online way. While I was thinking to look for the reliable online fruit shopping portal, i came across the post of BigBasket.com on my facebook feed.
Instantly it reminded me of ordering from BigBasket then since i have heard a lot about it from my friends. They have been talking about its service and the fresh fruits and vegetables they deliver on time.
With no time, i logged on to the portal and registered myself for the first time shopping experience at BigBasket.com. Well, i should admit that while the site offered a plethora of fruits and veggies to be shopped but it lagged at the payment gateway. The problem got resolved after multiple calls from customer care the next early morning regarding address confirmation, which got little annoying since it was my weekend off.
Website design is quite user friendly, offering a variety of options to shop from like- Organic store, beauty store, chocolate store etc.
There is a definitely a lot to look forward to once you sign up on the homepage. I was amazed to look at the fruits and vegetables options showing up on the site. The coolest feature for a buyer comes in the end to experience i.e., choosing delivery option. An option of time-slot pops up at the end for the buyers which gives them an option of asking BigBasket to deliver between next 6 days from the day of the order.
So i had ordered few veggies-mushroom and brocilli and favourite fruits- watermelon, grapes, oranges and kiwi. My order arrived on Sunday morning as per the scheduled time selected by me and payment mode selected was paying vi Debit card. The delivery of my Big basket came in easily and so was the payment made. Along with the order, came in tags for storage containers and a welcome note by the CEO.
Will I be ordering again? A big yes without a doubt because I am a BigBasketer now 🙂
