The purpose of this study is to empirically identify and describe customer experience of unattended delivery services in e-grocery retail, and suggest propositions for further research and development of the research area.

This exploratory research is based on a series of qualitative interviews to explore customer experience of unattended grocery delivery services. Semi-structured interviews with nine early adopters of such services were conducted. The coding revealed patterns of customer experience based on which propositions were put forward.

The empirical evidence shows that there are four dimensions of customer experience created by unattended delivery services. The emotional dimension includes flexibility, ease of use, luxury and futurism. Cognitive experience includes saving time, security, and food safety. The social dimension refers to interactions with family, friends and colleagues. Finally, the behavioral dimension includes willingness to pay, as well as word-of-mouth.
