Doing your shopping online is possible. Thanks to the spread of e-commerce and the success of platforms such as Amazon, even supermarket chains have decided to launch websites where you can do your shopping online with home delivery. From Carrefour to Conad, passing through Esselunga, Todis, Coop and Pam, all the major chains have a website where you can buy food, detergents and any other type of product, while sitting comfortably on the couch at home.
The payment is made directly online or you can decide to pay on delivery and in some cases you can also decide the time. Usually the shipment takes place within a few days, but in complicated situations such as those that Italy is experiencing now, the delivery may be delayed a few days. Nothing dramatic, the important thing is to make a substantial order so as not to have to make another in a few weeks. Here are the platforms to do your shopping online with home delivery.
How to do your shopping with Supermercato24
We start with a service that is not actually managed by any chain, but it was among the first websites in Italy to understand the potential of the sector. Supermercato24 allows users to choose products from the best supermarkets in Italy: from your smartphone or computer you make the shopping and within a few days the delivery is made.
The service covers mainly large cities, while in the municipalities it is more complicated to find a "Shopper". To check if your city is covered by the service just enter your home address on the homepage. To meet the Italian people who are living a complicated period, the delivery is free for the over 65 until March 30. You have to use the code UNAIUTOX65 for an expense of at least 40€.
How to do the shopping at Carrefour online
Doing the shopping online at Carrefour is easy and fast. From the homepage of the site you can click directly on the product categories (e.g. Sanitizers, Cold Cuts and Cheeses, Fish, Meat, Pantry), or on the item "Buy online". Once you have selected all the products you can go directly to payment, indicating the address and your data for home delivery.
In this period in which most Italians must stay at home, home delivery for the over 65 is free. Due to the high number of requests, the shipments are made with some days of delay.
How to do the shopping at Conad online
