Frequently Asked Qustions

I got a new phone. How do I transfer grocery data?

Follow these steps:

  1. On your old phone with data:
  2. Create account on Cloud (see User’s Guide). If account is already created, assign email and password.
  3. On your new phone:
  4. Install the latest version of Mighty Grocery.
  5. Sign in to the account created on the old phone.

I purchased the app in the past. How do I download it without paying again?

When downloading from Google Play:

  1. make sure to use the same Google account which you used to purchase the app;
  2. download Full (Premium) Version of Mighty Grocery

Please note that payments are handled by Google Play and we don’t have information about what account was used to purchase Mighty Grocery.

I purchased the app but it won’t download. What should I do?

Unfortunately, this is a common issue with Android Market/Google Checkout. Below are some tips:

  1. Reboot your phone and try purchasing/downloading the app again.
  2. Try Google’s official recommendations for this case.
  3. Try contacting Google Checkout support directly.
  4. Login into your Google Checkout and check your order status. Cancel your order if it’s in “Payment declined” status and try again.
  5. Try contacting your bank to clarify the reason why the Credit Card is rejected. One of the reasons may be your Credit Card does not allow foreign currency exchange operations.
  6. Try a different Credit Card.
  7. Finally, consider switching to Mighty Grocery Special Edition and paying with PayPal.

Credit Card is not accepted or can’t find Full version at the Android Market.

Please be aware of the following Payment methods accepted by Google Checkout. Kindly note that Discover card is not accepted outside U.S., so it won’t work with Mighty Grocery as we are a Canadian company. Visa/MasterCard should work just fine.

If Mighty Grocery is not available at Android Market in your location, you may want to try downloading Special Edition version and use PayPal to upgrade.

I am going to replace my phone. Can I recover the app without needing to pay again?

Yes, as long as you use the same Google account, you will be able to restore all your paid apps including Mighty Grocery without needing to pay again. See this forum thread.

    I can’t see what is being typed when I add to my shopping list, using my Samsung Galaxy S10e. My entry is hidden by the onscreen keyboard. Please help!

    Still no update for iPhone. Any plans for website support? This would be a great way to access across all devices. Nothing still comes close on the Apple App Store

  3. brammy says:

    It has been quite some time since the question on an iOS version was asked. Are you any closer to a release? I really miss this application as one of my go-to apps.

    • Alex says:

      Brammy, thanks for your feedback. Yes, we are getting closer. The iOS app is expected soon after Android update which would allow syncing of all grocery data instantly. Therefore if you have your data in Android app it would be possible to transfer data easily. Thank you for your patience.

      • Brammy says:

        Thanks for the quick reply as i have yet to find anything comparable. Very much looking forward to seeing this in the AppStore soon :-)

    My wife bought the app. Do I also need to buy it to sync to my account on my phone. I will be the secondary user and want only her lists to be synced.

    • Alex says:

      Kindly note that both handsets need to have Full version in order to sync. However you don’t need to buy the app again to share data between your devices such as phone and tablet if they use the same Google Account.

    I purchased a full version of 2.1 a long time ago. But when updating to 3.1 I got a trial version again. Do I need to purchase every new version?

  6. Marsha says:

    I’m having difficulty creating customized aisles for different lists. For example, every time I try to customize my Arts & Crafts list, it changes my Primary list as well. Could you please walk me step by step on customizing aisles on different lists?
