What Is Wofret ?
Wofret (World of Retail ) is an on-demand delivery company which allows customers to order food and other items – often within as little as 10-20 minutes.
Wofret is most notably known for its speedy grocery, food & retail deliveries. The company operates multiple retail shops in each of the cities it is present, which allows it to be within close range to most of its customers.
It has to be noted that Wofret does not own these dark stores. Instead, it partners with local shoos owners via a franchise agreement. Meanwhile, Wofret is responsible for product selection, pricing, and shipping items to the distribution warehouses (while the store owner handles the shipment to the customer).
Apart from groceries, food & retail , Wofret customers can also order restaurant food as well as a variety of other items, including tech items (e.g., chargers), pet food, or child care products. Furthermore, customers can hire couriers to have letters and packages delivered on their behalf.
The couriers delivering for Wofret are actually employed by the company. This is in stark contrast to other food delivery platforms like Deliveroo where drivers are hired as independent contractors and work on a per-order basis.
Wofret can be accessed by downloading the platform’s mobile apps, which are available on Android and iOS devices. After entering a delivery address and preferred payment method, customers can go ahead and order.
