▲ ▼ Alert me when slots in BigBasket is open
Online grocery delivery sites such as BigBasket to Grofers are operating at 60-70% capacity due to manpower shortage and supply constraints from COVID-19 lockdown. But the demand for online grocery delivery has sky rocketed for obvious reasons.
BigBasket has a slot system, which opens up at random for booking and so I have to keep checking the app for open slots and I'm rarely successful. This activity is very depressing, I have spent several sleepless nights on this already.
I wish, someone could build a solution to alert the users when the slots in BigBasket is available for booking. I'm not sure why BigBasket itself hasn't provided such a feature.
I'm sure this problem is being faced by thousands in India and so a solution for this would be much welcomed.
BigBasket might not have enabled alert notifications for slot availability to not increase the Network Traffic in a short period.
That would be great, thank you for your effort and all the best!
There is a demo on the page, which shows how to run the executables. You can also reach out to me incase you have queries.
This should effectively address this problem to those who are comfortable in running the executables, which is quite easy.
Thank you very much Abishek!
Had some trouble finding the API_KEY and USER_KEY from the push over for notifications, got some help from my friend and was able to work it out. The homepage of pushover shows the USER_KEY after login (same in the app) and the API_KEY needs to be created by clicking (Create an Application/API Token).
This script is running fine and hopefully I would get a notification when the slot is available. Thanks again.
True, I should have been much more clear in explaining about API_KEY & USER_KEY for audiences not familiar with those terms; I've since then updated the post to include those details - https://abishekmuthian.com/bigbasket-slot-alert/.
