frequently asked questions
how will I get orders after I partner with grofers under this program?

Once you become a partner by opening and managing your own dark store, grofers will make the assortment in your store visible to customers within a local region of about 10-20km. Orders placed by customers within that region will be fulfilled from your store. This also makes the supply chain shorter and faster

what are my responsibilities as a grofers dark store owner?

As a dark store partner you are expected to own all processes from store set up to store management including daily operations

can you elaborate on the setting up of the dark store (mini-warehouse)?

As part of the arrangement, dark store partners are expected to adhere to the following processes:

  • locate a property, which should be as per the grofers recommended guidelines 
  • a detailed ‘list of material’ will be shared according to which the set up should be done 
  • this will tentatively cost around ₹8-12 lakhs for the initial set up a ~3500 sq ft. carpet area store

Other than that you need to pay a brand fee of ₹1 lakh and provide us with a bank guarantee of ~₹35 lakhs in lieu of the products which we will be stocked at your dark store (mini-warehouse)

what aspects of the store operations will come under my purview in the store?

As part of the store operations at a broad level you will need to take care of material inbound processes such as receiving, inwarding, putaway, which will facilitate a smooth inbound flow of products and also outbound processes of picking, packing, billing and handing over to the products to delivery partners

how will I get paid for the services as part of the partnership?

You will be paid commission calculated from the monthly turnover. The billing cycle will be monthly and the payments will be completed within a defined time period

will I also have to deliver the orders to the end customer?

No, the orders will be delivered by our delivery partners. As store partners, you are expected to pick, pack, bill and handover the orders to our delivery partners within a predefined time frame
