    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Pint is an alcohol delivery app for Bangalore, India. It's completely free, supports same day delivery and works by cash-payment-on-delivery. If you love drinking, you should check it out!
    To order you must download the Android App from the Play Store. The service is available to only Bangalore City and the minimum Order amount varies from 600-1000 to different areas. Pay Cash for same day delivery. The collection looks pretty promising.

    They claim free delivery so I'm guessing the prices would be the same as any Liquor Store.

    Does Gurgaon have legit home delivery !?

    This service is good only if they are willing to deliver at odd hours. As we have discussed on FB, this is however governed by the local laws. So, this is got in order, its of no use. Your local jugaad are much better. If you're thirsty, you need to dig the hole yourself.

    Hello guys, this is from Pint (I'm a developer).

    dbg thanks so much for posting about us!! :) we owe you one

    JD666 - prices are just what the local shops offer - we don't charge you and they charge what they'd charge anyway and don't add anything

    SumitB - you are right in that late night delivery is very tricky. But the app is super useful for other reasons -
    1) good pricing: we have tieups with local shops - their prices vary product to product - and we find the best prices for each product
    2) super smooth experience for free: on average our users take 4 minutes to place orders end-to-end - so no talking, no haggling, no long repetitions of addresses, etc.
    3) this is my fav aspect: we show new and interesting and sometimes exotic drinks/cigars that you might not have previously tried.
    4) when there's a conflict, we weigh in and arrange for alternate emergency deliveries if necessary

    I hope that gives you a picture. I'll seriously appreciate if you guys could try it out and write to us at team at pintapp.org?

    Great to have a word from the people themselves. Can you post some more information on the background effort that goes in making this work.

    Best of luck!

    Thank you!! :) We are constantly amazed by how receptive people in bangalore are to new startups - it goes well appreciated. We have a dedicated and kickass support center that helps a lot. Our founder worked at google previously so our tech backend is pretty solid. With respect to local shops, we've been talking to them for several months now so we've established good rapport - they are hugely helpful with legal as well. You have any specific questions?

    You have a liquor license? Or you purchase and sell further. Any implications on delivery of alcohol? Legal that is? Coz I know Alcohol delivery is not permitted in Haryana, but they all do it off hand.

    Any guarantees on authenticity of alcohol? (its a mess here in the north)

    Is there a return policy?

    The delivery currently happens only in bangalore (and soon in manipal) and the laws are more favorable in karnataka than many other states. We hope to expand gradually to the other states where possible. About your other questions - unfortunately they come too close to the secret sauce and I'm concerned about saying too much too soon.

    Guarantees on alcohol and return policies are tricky - we proxy whatever the shops offer and it varies from case to case. Some established wine sellers and even liquor sellers offer them, but if an order is submitted at a very short notice for delivery at a busy hour and say, there's only one shop that can do the delivery, there may not be much choice about guarantees.

    However it goes, the user has the final say - we send him the prices, delivery slots, shop name, other info, and he can accept or decline it. We try to keep it as favorable to the user as possible (bec for one thing we love being the users ourselves :p).
