Who is the target customer segment?
Customers or potential customers who already shop at Costco in-store or via another delivery platform.
Costco orders via the dumpling app offer customers the highest value, in terms of both time and cost savings. In comparison to other platforms, the cost savings at Costco is the biggest differentiator with dumpling. Other platforms mark up items at Costco, up to 30%. So, customers who are shopping at Costco for the savings are in fact paying more when they order elsewhere.
Although Costco does offer delivery on some items, this service is more focused on businesses. This leaves a window for dumpling business owners to better serve individual customers ordering for themselves or their families.
Ultimately a dumpling biz owner can offer Costco customers the following:
- Cost savings
- Time/hassle savings
- More personalized service than any other platform
