On-demand delivery app Glovo allows users to order a wide variety of goods and have them delivered instantly to their doorstep.

In addition to the categories listed in the app, users can request a variety of orders, in which the courier will pick up and deliver any item from any store in less than an hour.

Users can order from any restaurant in your city, or from any supermarket and shop products like Food, pharmacy, flowers, alcohol, groceries, games, socks, pizza and much more 24/7 delivery service.


How To Order Using Glovo App

Ordering your first Glovo is really easy. Just follow these steps:

  1. Go to play store /Appstore or visit Glovo website
  2. Register your account
  3. Go to the “Manage payment methods” section in your profile and add a debit/credit card.
  4. Go back to the main screen and set the delivery address.
  5. Buy something from a restaurant or store or Send something.
  6. Follow the steps required for each option and once you’re finished, a courier will accept your order and deliver it in minutes.
  7. Track and follow the delivery in real time.
  8. Receive your delivery in minutes.
  9. Rate your experience.

The pricing of the delivery is dependent on the distance, so the closer it is, the cheaper it is.  The app just calculates the distance between the picking up point and the delivery address and then shows the cost of the delivery.
