How Buncha Works
Buncha is a grocery delivery app that focuses on affordability, convenience, and eco-friendliness. With in-app schedules, we connect neighbors with local merchants for deliveries throughout the week. Through store partnerships and the ability to create highly efficient neighborhood routes, Buncha is able to offer no markups and only $1.45 delivery fee; while simultaneously contributing to as much as 80% in carbon emission savings! Ultimately, Buncha is better for the people, the pocket, the planner, and the planet.
Buncha drives incremental and dependable revenue to merchants by aggregating demand every week within our neighborhoods. We are building a better way for communities across the country to get what they need, directly from the merchants they love, every week.

Efficient neighborhood routes allow for the cost of delivery to be only $1.45
Getting people weekly groceries shouldn’t be a luxury service, in many parts of the world it isn’t. Buncha is building a delivery experience for the 99% of the world, not the 1%.
Let’s use an example grocery order. On other grocery delivery apps, a $42 grocery order yields around $60 before tip.
At first glance, it may sound ludicrous to pay 30% of the cost of the groceries in fees, but if you think about it, perhaps it makes sense. You are, after all, indulging in the luxury service of having groceries delivered straight to your door.
With $6.00 in taxes + fees and $12.00 in product markups (tip not included yet!), that sounds like enough for grabbing the groceries, paying the driver, and leaving enough for the delivery platform to make a profit, right?
So... How Does Buncha Make Money?
Here is a possible breakdown of how this $60 is distributed. The party currently responsible for subsidizing food delivery is the grocery store, so that is where we begin our comparison.
