The Office of the Vice President, in partnership with the Quezon City government, turned to technology to help market vendors sell their products online.

Calling it “Community Mart,” Vice President Leni Robredo posted on her Facebook page a step-by-step guide on how to shop through the online market. It is downloadable from the App Store and Google Play.

The project is an online delivery service aimed at helping small-scale vendors and tricycle drivers whose livelihood are affected by the enhanced community quarantine due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

“Our program is more focused on capacitating small vendors who, otherwise, do not have the means and the resources to have online presence and cannot compete with the others,” she wrote in her post.

This is in an effort to help people transition to the “new normal,” Robredo added.

The vice president listed the following barangays that are covered by the Community Mart, with the pilot service at the Kamuning Market.

Among these are Kamuning, Mariana, Obrero, Sacred Heart, Laging Handa, Pinagkaisahan, South Triangle, Paligsahan, and Roxas District in Quezon City.

Same-day delivery is available for orders before 12 noon. Orders sent in after 12 noon will be delivered the next day.

Cash on delivery is the mode payment for customers for now.

Accredited tricycle drivers will deliver the goods from Kamuning Market to these communities.

“Deliveries are limited to the indicated barangays and through our accredited tricycle drivers. Discussions on deliveries to other areas are still underway,” Robredo said.
