The US online grocery shipping and home delivery market, valued at $257.5 billion, continues to grow significantly. This expansion is driven by increasing consumer demand for convenience and the lasting impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which accelerated the shift towards online shopping.

My 40-year-old son and his girlfriend in Nashville, for instance, never shop for groceries in person; everything is ordered online and delivered to their doorstep.

It was only a matter of time before this shopping revolution reached Ecuador. Between 2016 and 2017, the business concept for TIPTI was developed, aiming to bring this service to Ecuador.

By 2018, TIPTI was officially launched as a virtual assistant for supermarket and specialty home shopping. TIPTI, which stands for “Time for You,” connects a specialized team of shoppers with customers to meet their home needs, ensuring that ordered products arrive safely at their destination. The company anticipated growth in 2019 and worked on creating new alliances with recognized brands to expand its market. When the pandemic hit in 2020, TIPTI faced a significant challenge as demand exceeded its capacity.

However, the company successfully managed the surge in orders without compromising on service quality. The coordinated efforts of the entire team, especially the shoppers, allowed Ecuadorian families to receive their groceries at home safely.

Since 2021, TIPTI has maintained gradual and sustained growth, becoming a leader in e-commerce in Ecuador. Post-pandemic, TIPTI has increased sales and continued building a solid consumer base, now serving 45 cities in Ecuador.

TIPTI is ranked among the 100 companies with the best reputation in Ecuador, according to MERCO (Corporate Reputation Business Monitor).

I first used TIPTI during the COVID shutdown to avoid the hassle of navigating stores with constantly changing health requirements. The system was easy to understand, and my orders were delivered quickly and correctly. I appreciated the convenience and cost savings of not needing to take a taxi, spend time shopping, wait in checkout lines, load into another taxi, then finally unload and carry the bags up to my fourth-story condo.

For me, grocery shopping is a chore, not a social event, and I have better ways to spend my time.
