Košík is an online store where you can buy basically anything you can buy in a supermarket. You can choose from various types of goods, starting with groceries, baby products, drugstore supplies, household and garden equipment, and ending with the pets section.

Košík uses its own credits that are usually used as a form of compensation. If there is any problem with the goods you purchased, Košík either sends money to your bank account or compensates you using credits. These credits can be used as a discount for your next purchase. (1 credit = 1 czk).
Rohlik is a very similar concept to Košik. Rohlík also offers a wide range of goods such as groceries, drugstore goods and cosmetics, baby supplies, and much more.
Unlike Košík, Rohlík delivers every day from 7 am to 11 pm, including during weekends and holidays.
“Rohlik do kanclu”
Rohlik do kanclu, in translation “Rohlik to the office”, is a special delivery for offices which can be delivered right to the reception. For offices, Rohlik offers not only groceries but also coffee breaks and meeting refreshments but also stationery supplies. Besides, the whole purchase can be done as an invoice payment. Therefore, it is very convenient for companies.
If you do not feel like paying for the delivery services. You can also choose some of Rohlík´s pick up points where the delivery is for free.
Everli is a very popular concept of online groceries mainly in Italy and Poland. In Czechia though, this service is available in Prague and recently, they started to operate also in Brno and Ostrava.
Everli is a bit different concept than Rohlik or Košík. Instead of choosing groceries and other products from their range, in Everli you choose an exact shop where you want to buy your groceries. Right now you can choose from five different supermarkets. These are: Billa, Albert, Kaufland, Tesco, and Globus. After selecting your prefered shop, you put your goods in “the online basket” and an Everli shopper will buy everything on your shopping list for you from the selected shop. If the product is not available in the shop the shopper either chooses a replacement product or the shopper calls you and you can discuss the next step.
After successful shopping, your shopping bag will be delivered right in front of your door. You can choose the delivery time so it suits your schedule best.
