An overview of mobile apps in Malaysia that do the shopping for you

Most of the apps in Malaysia are now advertising services to help shoppers do their grocery shopping in view of the current global pandemic crisis.


TheLorry, Malaysia’s trusted and affordable mover, has launched TheLorry Grocer on 28 March 2020. This is a new platform that enables customers to order their supplies or arrange for deliveries to anywhere in the city, all within minutes.

Place the order at http://thelorry.com/my/grocery and enjoy 5% for same-day delivery.

TheLorry also has a new service to help protect the elderly during this trying period by helping them with their grocery delivery needs. The number to call is+6016-2992189.

The downside of this service is the high delivery fee of an estimated RM 36.
