Why We Love To Use The Shop SM Mobile App For Grocery Shopping [Review]

May 31, 2022

Sharing here our experience in using the Shop SM Mobile App and why we recommend it.

Since the implementation of the strict lockdown because of the COVID-19 pandemic two years ago, we’ve relied heavily on delivery apps for food and other home essentials. While we do love the Grab app because of its huge number of partners in GrabMart, we do admit that you can only buy limited items in each of its supermarkets and grocery store merchants (we do love GrabFood though).

Why We Love To Use The Shop SM Mobile App For Grocery Shopping [Review]

    However, when we discovered the Shop SM Mobile App, it brought a whole level of convenience to us when it comes to grocery shopping.

    How we started using the Shop SM Mobile App

    It all started when we wanted to buy Purefoods Chicken Karaage for Miguel. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find chicken karaage in Robinsons Supermarket and Ever Supermarket through GrabMart. That’s when I decided to download and try the Shop SM Mobile App. Suffice it so say that I’m very thankful for deciding to try it because it’s the closest thing that you can get to in-person shopping in SM.

    The 3 top things that we like in Shop SM Mobile App

    Here are the reasons why we love to use the Shop SM Mobile App:

    1. It offers a complete shopping experience

    If you love online shopping, then you’d definitely enjoy using the Shop SM Mobile App. It has two main categories, the SM Store and the SM Markets. The SM Markets is further divided into two subcategories, the SM Hypermarket and the SM Supermarket.

    Shop SM Mobile App Store

    Under the SM Store, you can find items organized based on those that are on sale as well as products for Women, Men, Home, Babies & Kids, Toys, Appliances, Hardware, Beauty, and New Arrivals.

    Meanwhile, SM Markets is further subdivided into Promos, DIY/Hardware, Pantry, Health & Hygiene Essentials, Health & Beauty, Baby & Kids, Home Care, Beverage, Snacks, Chilled & Dairy Items, Bakery, Frozen Goods, Fresh Meat & Seafoods, Fresh Produce, Pet Care, International Goods, Only in SM Markets, Ready To Heat & Eat Items, Ready to Cook, and Home Appliances & Essentials.

    But what we really love is the SM Markets because you can buy practically any home and kitchen essentials here. We were even able to buy Ramen Nagi in frozen ready-to-heat packs through the Shop SM Mobile App.

    2. You can opt for same-day delivery

    Your orders can be delivered within the day but you have to take note that because of the volume of orders, you have to book your orders preferably in the morning to be able to meet the early afternoon cut-off time. If you want early morning delivery, you have to book it the night before. The latest that SM delivers is 9:00 PM.

    3. Payment is convenient

    You have the option to pay for your orders via Credit or Debit Card, GCash or GrabPay, and Cash on Delivery or upon pick-up.

    What’s even better is that you can also key in your SM Advantage Card account number before payment so that you will still earn points for your orders.

    In terms of the platform itself, I think it’s robust because of how fluid it is. The Shop SM App doesn’t hang or close unexpectedly.

    The Shop SM Mobile App is available on Android and IOS.


    If you are still not comfortable to go out to buy your groceries, then using the Shop SM App is your next best option. Through this app, you can buy items from the SM Store as well as groceries, home, and pantry essentials from the SM Markets. You can have your orders delivered to your home or pick it up from the nearest SM branch.
