More complaints about the RedMart-Lazada merger are pouring forth by disgruntled customers who are increasingly using other online platforms to do their grocery shopping.

Online grocery shopping portal RedMart was founded in August 2011 to help make grocery shopping easier for customers by allowing them to purchase groceries and household essentials online at anytime and delivering the products to customers at their doorstep.

In 2016, Alibaba-backed shopping platform Lazada acquired RedMart. This year, RedMart announced that it will cease its operations from its own website and that it will move to Lazada’s platform from 15 March 2019.

Since the merger, several customers have complained that the new system has glitches that make online grocery shopping inconvenient instead of hassle-free.
