The only online grocery shopping I use

Years ago in Manhattan, some young people dressed in "Fresh Direct" aprons
stopped me on the street to take a poll and asked if I would ever order groceries online to be delivered. I said to them , "I don't think I would ever need to do that!" Fast forward years down the line. I have been using Fresh Direct for a while whenever I'm too busy to shop in person and especially during Covid. I recently had an injury which has kept me homebound. Fresh Direct is the only way to go. It is the only online shopping I use and I know there are a lot of them out there. It's easy to navigate and you can get a delivery within 24 hours of ordering sometimes even sooner than that. I highly recommend !

Adequate app

I’m not going to focus here on how FreshDirect’s product range has gone downhill, or how they hardly ever offer promotional discounts to regular customers. I still use FreshDirect very often, and almost always place my orders through this app. For the most part, it’s decent and functional, but it falls far short of being great. You can do basic shopping through it, add a delivery tip, and pay by credit/debit card, MasterPass, or PayPal (not Apple Pay yet). However, after several years of using this app, there have been few enhancements. You still can’t rate items, create shopping lists, preorder or save items for later through it. You can’t use external coupons, scan barcodes, add delivery times to your calendar, or request items that are not in stock. You can’t even make a simple “favorites” list (there’s a section that shows you items you’ve previously purchased, but you can’t really use it as a favorites list because it doesn’t show everything, and you can’t edit out things you don’t want to reorder). These are commonplace features in other shopping apps. I’m not sure why FreshDirect wants to keep its app so primitive, but here we are. Despite being on the slow side and having occasional crashes, it serves its purpose well, and is adequate for placing basic orders.

Delayed twice and poor customer support

My order has been delayed twice and that’s totally ok in light of the current circumstances, but give people a head’s up please. Both times they were delayed, it was very late and last minute. Now, I’m trying to determine whether or not to wait for my order (which could get here very late and it’s already almost 10pm) or reschedule or cancel, but since I can’t talk to a customer rep, I used the automated customer service option. It asks for my order number. I retrieve it via the app, and when I get back to the automated customer service line, I find that it’s hung up on me. I try to cancel via SMS; it gave me no confirmation so I’m not sure whether it’s coming or not. I call the service line again, type in the order number, but it won’t accept it. It just tells me over and over again to type it in, even though I already have - multiple times. Also, product availability is inaccurate. If I select a product, add it to cart, and pay for it, I expect to get it. If I’m in a grocery store, put something in my cart and get in line at the cashier, I wouldn’t expect one of the grocery store employees to take an item out of my cart and give it to another customer. Really frustrating CX overall.
