    Are you trying to say getting it delivered? You can also get delivery, without a pronoun. – Jason Bassford Nov 30 '18 at 10:53

I think you mean getting it delivered.

It is the difference between buying a pizza at a grocery store and getting it delivered.

Use it as 1. It is the difference between buying a pizza at a grocery store and getting it delivered. Or 2. It is the difference between buying a pizza at a grocery store and waiting for its delivery(at somewhere).

  • "Waiting for its delivery" is not idiomatic. – J.R. Nov 30 '18 at 20:30
  • Okey then we could write it as waiting it to be delivered (at somewhere). ? – Ambashankar Sagitra Nov 30 '18 at 20:34
  • The usual preposition would be to, not at: ...and waiting for it to be delivered to the office. That said, one could say: ...and waiting at the office for it to be delivered. – J.R. Nov 30 '18 at 20:40
