How to Order Medicine on Baidu Waimai

Getting meds without leaving your home or office


Baidu Waimai is a large and famous food delivery service in China, almost everyone knows how to use it. But if you look through all its functions it can offer so much more, for example, medicine delivery right from pharmacy to your home.

Sometimes we are too sick to go out or the pharmacy is too far from our home. So we’d rather have the meds delivered to our home. Baidu Waimai offers you an opportunity to do that.

What do you need to do?

Step 1.

Go to the 2nd page of the slider panel in Baidu Waimai and find option 送药上门 (Medicine delivery) and click on it.

Step 2.

You will find yourself in a list of pharmacies having a delivery, but I personally recommend number 2 in the list because it’s the only pharmacy that delivers right away, for others you will have to wait 1-3 days.

Step 3.

After you click on it, you will find yourself in the menu of different kinds of medicine, now you can input the name of the medicine in the search field or choose if you see it on the list. Note there is no English translation for this – ensure that your chinese is on par, or have someone guide you.

For example, I want to buy 999 for a cold, so I click on “+” to add it to the basket. After that, I click on the basket and see the amount and a total bill.

Step 4.

Here is the content of the basket which is ready for payment. You only need to input your Chinese adress in the upper line.

Now all you need to do is to click the red button to pay the bill through Wechat or Alipay and wait for the delivery man.

Stay healthy 🙂
