Lacy is an online alcohol delivery app developed by our expert Android and iPhone developers and designed by our creative UI/UX designers. This app allows customers to choose from all kinds of seasonal booze, liquor, beer, and whiskey.
The users can get their order delivered. If they wish to save time and delivery fees they can also go for the pick-up at the store option. Users don’t need to queue up for bills and may buy a product through the app by scanning it in the shop. They can browse from categories, re-order their favourites, keep a track of their order history, request an unavailable product and even send gifts to their friends and family.
How Did The Client Get The Idea
Our client owns multiple wine shops. In fact, this is his family business and a lot of his relatives run wine shops as well.
He was highly impressed and inspired by eCommerce apps like Amazon. He decided to take his business online. He wanted a digital online liquor store that would cater to the on-demand needs of his customers.
He is one of our regular clients and this is the second time he approached us with an idea after being impressed with our work the first time around. He shared his idea with us and we got on to work as soon as possible.
Features We Integrated Into The Lacy App
The customer’s app to order alcohol comes with a signup feature. All they need to do is fill details like name, (verified) phone number, email address, and birthdate. A security pin is generated at the time of signing up which can be used to login after that and can be changed as well.
The customers can easily search for products by just typing their brand or category in the search bar. Google voice search functionality has been enabled for convenience. So, it is also possible to search by speaking the name into the speaker and find the booze of their choice.
Browse by category
If the customer has not decided on a particular product or wants to look at different options to make up his mind, he can browse under various categories. These categories are liquor, beer, wine, extras and deals. More categories and subcategories are added as per the availability.
The customers can keep track of order history and also access the details of all the purchases. Even the invoices are stored in the account. The customers can also track the orders whether they are active, completed, or cancelled. They also have an option to re-order if they wish.
If the customer wishes to save delivery charges and time, he can choose a product on the app and then go to the shop to pick it up. Another unconventional feature of this app is that the user can buy a product through the app by scanning and purchasing it in the shop without queuing up for bills.
The app also has a feature that lets the customer gift a product to their friends and family. There are two ways of doing this- by buying a product and delivering it to the recipient’s address or by giving them a gift card of a specific value that they can redeem and buy a product of their choice.
The customers can easily request an unavailable or out of stock product in this app to order alcohol. All they need to do is scan the barcode of that product in the app so that all the details are automatically generated. Another way is to upload the image of the product and make a request.
Push notifications are sent to the users by the admin. The admin can send advertisements and information regarding updates in terms and conditions. Users also get updated about any new offers and deals. This feature also notifies the users about the status of their requested products.
Our developers have also integrated payment gateways in this app to provide secure payment mode. Payments are done securely with Stripe. Customers can make payments using their credit or debit cards. They can also add and save multiple cards to make the process faster for future transactions.
Refer and Earn
This feature is beneficial for the customers as it helps them earn rewards. A lacy wallet is given to each user when they create an account on the app. The customers get reward points when they refer the app to others and they download it. Even gift card points are deposited in this wallet.
Manage All Drivers
The admin has the authority to manage the drivers. He is allowed to view a new driver request and verify the documents for verification. Moreover, the admin can also activate, deactivate or remove any driver’s profile.
The admin is able to manage all the incoming requests and assign them to any available driver. He can also track the order and the status of delivery. Also, track if the order is on-demand or scheduled for it later.
The admin can manage the products, details and images. He can view, add, search, edit or delete any product on the list. He also manages the product for daily deals, bestseller, perfect gift and local brands.
The admin manages the delivery fees, tips, store pickup discount, Lacy’s share and it’s price, and taxes based on the product’s category. The admin also manages cashbacks, gift redemptions and cancellation charges.
Whenever a customer faces any issue with the app, product or delivery he reports an issue. This issue is handled by the admin. The admin can keep a track of all the issues and handle them as per the need.
