  • Patent number: 10262292
    Abstract: In some examples, a first device of a first buyer may receive a selection of a first item offered by a selected merchant. The first device may determine whether any second devices are within a threshold distance of the first device. Based on a second device being within the threshold distance, the first device may send, to the second device, a communication for creating a combined order. Receipt of the communication may cause the second device to present, to a second buyer, an interface for creating a combined order. The second buyer may use the second device to select a second item to order from the merchant. At least one of the first device or the second device may send combined order information to a service computing device, which may send the combined order to the merchant and schedule a courier to deliver the ordered items to the buyers.

  • Patent number: 10127595
    Abstract: Item-level information of a particular item may be processed to categorize the particular item.

For example, the item-level information may include a cost of the particular item at a merchant, a rating of the particular item for a merchant, a number of calories of the particular item for a merchant, and so on. Information regarding the ranking may be displayed or otherwise output to enable the user to identify and order the particular item from a merchant that satisfies the user's needs.

  • Patent number: 9269103
    Abstract: In some examples, a first device associated with a first buyer may present information related to a plurality of merchants offering items for delivery. The first device may receive, as a first order, a selection of a first item offered by a selected merchant. The first device may determine that a second device is within a threshold distance of the first device, and may send, to the second device, a communication for creating a combined order, such as for dividing a delivery fee associated with the order. A second buyer may use the second device to select a second item to order from the selected merchant. At least one of the first device or the second device may send order information to a service computing device, which may send the combined order to the first merchant and schedule a courier to deliver the order to the buyers.
