  • 4 How do food delivery apps work?

    A customer launches an on-demand food delivery app. If this is a marketplace, e.g., Doordash, users search for a provider. If this is a restaurant app, the customer browses through the menu.

    The customer places an order then selects delivery and payment options. Restaurant receives a notification with order details and prepares the food. When the order is ready, a delivery service picks it up and delivers it, or the customer picks it up as take away.

  • 5 Are food delivery solutions profitable?

    Like many other startup projects in our on-demand economy, on-demand food delivery services are still in their infancy. They require time and energy to become sustainable, profitable businesses. Customers change their eating habits reluctantly and very slowly. But perhaps more quickly during these last many months.

    Big players, like Glovo and UberEats, adjust their expenses. Glovo generates more profit than it spends on costs from orders. The company expects net profits soon.

  • 6 How do on-demand delivery apps make money?

    Depending on the monetization model, on-demand food delivery services make money in several ways:

    • Display ads and promotions from different services.
    • Receive a commission for each transaction in the system.
    • Charge delivery fees.

    Restaurant delivery apps can take delivery commissions. Or they can monetize on-demand food delivery app development indirectly by increasing user satisfaction and engagement.
