on-demand delivery app Lalamove
reveals its Bangkok pay-on-delivery customers put food and more food before
work, home and even romance. Lalamove’s Purchase Service customers are a hungry
bunch and cannot get enough of traditional Thai dishes, even when using the
modern-day Lalamove app, according to newly released data.
the recently launched Purchase Service, Lalamove drivers can shop up to a value
of 1,000 THB with cash reimbursed by customers on delivery. So far, afternoons are
peak time for ordering in some good old fashioned comfort food from noodle soup
to chicken and rice, red pork to Phuket chicken biryani; satisfying the taste
buds during lunchtime and beyond.
food, desserts and even drinks make it into the top five foodie buys too. There
is also what to eat after work to think about as well, with the second most
popular type of afternoon purchases being supermarket produce. Meat and seafood
are top of the menu with shop buys, with tasty seasonings and sauces such as
soy, chilli and oyster adding some real flavour to the deliveries.
customers may want the convenience of quick and easy supermarket purchases with
Lalamove, they still want a balanced diet with vegetables and fruit scoring
Bangkok’s Lalamove customers are not ordering in food they are focused on ordering
office supplies, household goods and, in fifth place, flowers, with roses being
Bangkok’s favorite bloom.
might be surprising is that far from being far away from shops and restaurants,
Purchase Service customers are in busy city hotspots. Most orders are requested
in Pathumwan, followed hot on the heels by Klongtan, Hua Mark, Jompol and
there is no end to retail requests either with some rather unusual purchases
too, including a delivery of gas for a car, men’s white underwear, animal food,
fertilizer and even a pestle and mortar!
