Coopmart generally offers some of the most competitive prices when it comes to supermarkets in Vietnam. But online, the prices are even better, thanks to the website-only discounts. For example, a box of 10 eggs priced at VND26,000 (~USD1.12) at physical stores costs only VND19,500 (~USD0.84) when you purchase online.

Those who aren’t big shoppers or only shop for one or two don’t need to worry about hefty shipping fees, as Coopmart’s site only charges a flat VND10,000 shipping fee for all purchases under VND500,000 (~USD21.50). Any purchase beyond that amount comes with free shipping.

It’s not just fresh produce and packaged foods you can get here – Coopmart’s website also sells basic necessities such as homewares, cosmetics, and beverages. However, items here sell out fast so you might want to wake up early to fill your cart.

Your ordered items will be delivered within 24 hours, and you can make payment upon delivery or with a credit or ATM card online. If you have a family member who’s not well-versed in shopping online, they can phone Coopmart directly to order.
