Online shopping is becoming more and more common due to the pace of work and the little time that, in general, is available to dedicate to the home. Therefore, it is important to choose which supermarket to make your purchase in based on your Send conditions.
Most supermarkets charge for home delivery, and some do not do so under a minimum purchaseFor example, 60 euros in the establishment or 120 euros online.
Others, as is the case with the majority, have a fixed price for home delivery on purchases made over the Internet, and which are not less than 6 euros in the case of chains implemented nationwide.
In addition, shipping costs represent a significant expense in the shopping cart if this is done frequently: it is of little use save a few cents in the yogurts or in the type of hamburger that is chosen if at the end this not inconsiderable amount is added.
Well the bad news is that shipping costs are practically impeccable: There is no god that forgives them and considering the price of gasoline, it is logical that this is the case.
However, there are more creative proposals in the Spanish distribution scene, such as Bonpreu i Esclat, which have a flat rate so that shipping is more an investment than a cost.
In this supermarket (where shipping costs between 3.50 and 6.95 euros) there are different modalities of what they have called BPassthe aforementioned flat rate without permanence and with automatic monthly renewal.
By subscribing, the customer makes a payment and you automatically start to enjoy free service costs on all purchases you make during the period of time you have chosen.
There is a total option, where the delivery of any online purchase of every day of the week (with up to one order per day), and the mini option, with online purchases that are delivered from Tuesday to Thursday.
In the whole week options, there is the monthly plan 9.99 eurosthe semi-annual one at 49.99 (it costs 8.33 per month) and the annual one at 89.99 (at 7.50 per month), while the mini service is paid at 5.99 euros per month, 29.99 per semester (5 per month) or 49.99 per year (4.17 per month).

This measure is an excellent idea for the supermarket to build loyalty among its clientele who, for their part, marries with that supermarket more in the long term and that is a very personal decision, impossible for those who enjoy snacking at various supermarkets.
