4. Connectivity with the website:

Website connectivity is another important factor that affects the cost. The application must be connected to the website to have more detailed information about the products and services provided by the company.

5. Location:

The physical location of the mobile app development company and the team of application developers also play a major role in determining the mobile app development cost. Approximately $6,000 to $20,000 investment is made in general in every application development in India.

Legal compliance :

As liquor comes with a set of rules and regulations, it is not possible to deliver it without any legal terms and conditions. In order to develop an on-demand alcohol delivery application, the company has to issue legal documents from the government so that the delivery, consumption as well as selling of liquor items should be seamless and there should not come any kind of difficulty regarding the abolition of rights or violation of law and management of the country.
