These online grocery stores will make it easier for you to stay at home while keeping your pantry stocked with the essentials.

Other tips you can keep in mind when you’re expecting a delivery from Indonesian online grocery stores: ask the driver to drop the package on your doorstep. You can pick up the package when the driver leaves. This way, you minimize the possibility of virus transmission between yourself and the driver.

Some online grocery stores have contactless delivery in their menu which allows you to ask the driver to put your delivery item two meters away from them. If there isn’t an option, you can write it in the notes section.

Remember to wash your hands thoroughly after handling groceries, before preparing food, and before eating. Check out these tips from the World Health Organization on how to protect yourself and others during this pandemic.
