order directly via our website with no third party involvement
Did you know third party apps such as just eat, deliveroo, ubereats and others charge a huge (up to 30%) commission fee on every single order? You probably didn’t. Research shows that most customers don’t even realise this when they order takeaway. Unknowingly, customers are lining the pockets of executives at the expense of local takeaways, restaurants, staff and their families. The vast majority (89%) of the people we asked said that, if we knew about the fees restaurants face, they would order directly from the restaurant as opposed to using third party apps.
Giving away a huge chunk of revenues to Big Tech giants is a particularly painful huge blow to restaurateurs who are struggling to get back on their feet after the crippling lockdown. Furthermore, a significant proportion of the riders who deliver the food on behalf of these companies, earn below the minimum wage, including some who are paid as little as £2 an hour it is claimed by The Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
