Sales of online food have been increasing at an astonishing pace. Currently, it is mainly driven by the millennials, and the trend seems to be speeding up. According to forecasts, in 2030 the value of the global online food delivery market will have reached USD 365 billion! (source) Perhaps you’d like a piece of that cake and ensure a Foodpanda alternative instead of paying commission to the portal?

Would you like to forget about paying commission to the online food ordering portal?

When you cooperate with an online food ordering portal, you pay commission from the value of orders placed through a given portal. Such a solution is not advantageous for restaurant owners. The better your business prospers and the more you sell, the more you have to pay to the portal.

When you launch your own online food ordering system, as a Foodpanda alternative, you will only pay a small monthly commission. The fee will not depend on the value of your orders.
