Difference Between Doodhwala and an Ecommerce Business
The basic difference between these two businesses is that the Milk delivery app concept is based on micro-delivery and micro-commerce business. You cannot order fewer items from big e-commerce websites. One major plus point of this app is that you will get your order at your doorstep before 7 AM.
The app seems quite similar to Flipkart and Amazon but these websites charge some particular deliver charges and also they do not deliver orders just the next day at your home.

Development Cost of Online Milk Delivery App
Although we have discussed the features of the app but calculating the estimate of developing an online milk delivery app is not an easy task. There are various factors that affect the cost of the development of the app. The major factors are features, functionality, and region of app development.
The hourly cost of development is different in each country due to different economic conditions. Cost is somehow different, but the quality of work is almost similar in each country. Just for an idea, the development cost in the USA is $140-$240 per hour, in Europe the is quite low at around $100-$150. But in Asian countries like Malaysia, the rate is only $50-$90 per hour only.
With these cost estimations, we can calculate a basic estimation of the online milk delivery app. If you are developing an app with basic features in India, then it will cost you around $15,000-$20,000. But if you are including some advanced features like CRM and CMS then the price will be high.
We can develop an online milk delivery app for your business at a budget price with quality features.
