Home Delivery for All Your Shopping Needs
I love getting to know my customers and giving them a helping hand! Being a Pronto ambassador means that I get to build genuine relationships with them and find out how to prioritize their individual needs. I feel like instead of just delivering to the door of a stranger, I serve friends so they can focus on their lives.

We'll Answer Any of Your Questions
How does Pronto select stores?
An initial set of stores are chosen based on the availability of online ordering and the ability to designate an alternate person for pickup. For a retailer that has multiple stores in a group, we select the store that provides the best service. It allows us to service our customers more efficiently.
Will the number of stores change in future?
Yes. We are constantly encouraging store owners to provide curbside pickup facility so that we can provide a more comprehensive selection of stores to our customers.
Can I recommend a store?
Absolutely. We will make every effort to include your store in our roster. In case we have trouble adding the store, we will let you know what you can do to encourage the store owner to provide curbside pickup.
How do I know if Pronto provides service in my area?
In the “Coverage” page, you will be able to check if Pronto covers your zip code. If your zip code is not covered, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will notify once we start coverage of your neighborhood.
Which stores are covered in my area?
Once you create an account with Pronto, you will see a larger set of stores in “How to Order” tab.
Why do I have to create an order on Pronto?
Without your authorization, Pronto will not be able to deliver your order. Sending email to us is not sufficient, you will have to create order on Pronto for us to deliver your order. Also, you will have to forward the store emails, so we know what items you would like us to pickup.
How do I know my Ambassador?
We will assign a few Ambassadors to you. They will be delivering your goods regularly. Ambassador profiles will be provided, so you can become familiar with them. The profile will include their photo, background, customer feedback.
For each of your Pronto order, the order page will list a couple of Ambassadors who will be responsible for deliveries. There is a primary ambassador who will be delivering the goods. In case, he or she is not available, the secondary ambassador will be making the delivery.
How do I schedule a delivery with Pronto?
- Create an order with Pronto: Select a date and delivery slot on the order page. Select the stores from your favorites list and any service you would like. Complete the order by checking out.
- Complete order on the retailer website: Include Ambassador name in the retailer ordering page as designated pickup person and verify the right store location for pickup.
- Forward order and pickup confirmation emails to Pronto: Once you have scheduled deliveries in Pronto website, forward order and pickup confirmation from retailer to the email address email@example.com with delivery date mentioned in MM/DD/YYYY. Emails forwarded to other Pronto email addresses will not be processed.
Why do I have to forward both order and pickup confirmation emails to Pronto?
Order confirmation email allows us to know what you have ordered. This is to avoid any mistakes during pickup or any error made by the stores packing your order.
Pickup confirmation allows us to know that orders are ready for pickup. Also, in most cases, retailers provide a barcode on pickup orders, which is required at the time of pickup.
What if I need to change a date or add/remove retailers from an existing order?
Pronto order history page provides two options Edit and Cancel for all orders. Note, you will not be able to edit or change an order on the day or delivery.
- Edit: You will be able to add or remove retailers to an existing order and also change a delivery slot. However, you will not be able to change the delivery date.
- Cancel: In case you need to change the delivery date, you will have to cancel your existing order and create a new one.
How do I order from a retailer?
You will find ordering information for retailers in two places.
- In the account page, you will find “how to order” tab that provides links for each retailer. Each of these links provides a detailed explanation of how you can order on that particular retailer.
- The order page also has links on a retailer website and how to order. The link will provide you ordering details for each of the retailers.
After you have selected products and checking out at the retailer website, please ensure you have selected pick up from the right store and designated Pronto Ambassador as your pickup person. Some retailers don’t provide the option of adding an alternate pickup person. That’s ok for the stores on our list.
How can I simplify my weekly ordering on retailers?
It takes a little time initially. Once you create a profile with a retailer, you can then use your previous orders from order history to reorder items. The process is simple and quick.
Will Pronto pay and then charge me?
No. At this time, we pickup and deliver orders from stores. You will have to pay for the merchandise directly to the store. We may introduce this service in future.
What if I order on a wrong store?
Pronto does not cover all stores of in network retailers. You must order on the right store. In case you order on a wrong store, you will be able to change your store address easily by using the following steps:
- From you existing order page, add all your items to the cart. Retailer order page will have a link for this.
- Cancel your existing order and the retailer will release credit card hold.
- Reorder the items in the cart on the right store.
How do I know my order is confirmed and ready for pickup?
After you have completed the checkout, most retailers will send you two emails. The first one confirming the order and the second one confirming the order is ready for pickup. We will upload PDF copies of both emails so you can see on the order page. Once the store confirms the order is ready for pickup, we will send you an email confirming the delivery date and time.
How do I know when Pronto will make delivery?
The deliveries will be made based on the time slot selected by you while ordering delivery on Pronto. You can track the real-time ETA of each shipment on our website.
Will you be making separate deliveries or combined delivery?
All the deliveries in a day will be combined and dropped off together.
Do we need to be home to receive the delivery?
You don’t have to be home to receive the delivery. However, you should indicate if we can leave your shipments outside your home. If we don’t have your permission to leave deliveries outside, we will make another attempt and then return the goods to the stores for a refund.
Will you deliver inside the home or unpack?
We will be happy to make deliver inside your home or garage. However, there will be a small fee if we have to unpack the boxes or remove the boxes.
What happens there is a problem with a pickup or delivery?
We will immediately notify you based on your choice of notification (email or text).
What if there is a missing item or wrong items were delivered?
The stores select the items that you have ordered for pick up. Pronto will pick up the order(s) and deliver to your home. Our Ambassadors do a cursory check for items ordered, but are not responsible for ensuring the store has picked your items accurately. If you determine any discrepancies in your order, please contact the store to address for any resolution.
