Online shop in e-mail app | Walmart Inc.

Walmart has partnered with Verizon Media to enable users of the Yahoo Mail app to place orders directly from their e-mail inboxes. People no longer need to use Walmart's online shop or app to buy the products. 

The "Walmart for Groceries” feature lets shoppers look for products in their e-mail program, compile a shopping list and order the goods. They also get to choose whether the items should be delivered home or if they prefer to collect them from the store. What's more, the use of the user data will see customers receiving personalised product recommendations.

 

Automatic food delivery service | Jupiter Inc., USA

The start-up Jupiter wants to make home deliveries more convenient and has launched a service for the automated reordering of groceries. Using an app, people first choose from a catalogue featuring all the key products, including mass-produced items, ready-made meals, and snacks, while households are generally served by the same person every week. Based on previous orders, an integrated autopilot regularly compiles curated shopping carts as a suggestion and learns a family’s preferences over time.
