Personalised orders via Buymie can be delivered in as little as an hour, while other delivery options include two and three hour windows, along with the capability to order up to a week in advance.

After a successful pilot launch in selected Dublin postcodes last year, the Lidl service is now available citywide - complementing the German retailer’s expansion of its current network of 159 stores across the country.

Customers can choose from Lidl’s full range of products available in store except non-food weekly specials and instore promotional food deals.

Speaking at the announcement, Alan Stewart, Head of eCommerce at Lidl Ireland said the partnership provides “a real differentiator in the online grocery delivery market by ensuring the fastest delivery option in the Dublin area with a premium personal shopper service through our delivery partner.”

Devan Hughes, CEO and Co-Founder of Buymie said: “This partnership is a first of its kind in Ireland and has truly raised the bar for the entire industry when it comes to speed and personalisation in grocery online. With the success and speed of adoption seen during our pilot, we are tremendously excited to see this partnership expand across the entire city of Dublin. With discount and online set to be the two fastest growing sectors in coming years, I feel this offering has opened an entirely new channel in and of itself.” 

The Buymie app can be downloaded free on iOS or Android devices. The fee is €6.99 for delivery within one hour, with two hour and three hour delivery options costing €4.99 and €3.99 respectively.

There is free delivery for all orders over €100.
