Although this affects the associated businesses of trends being replaced, but at the same time, it open fresh doors of opportunities as well with a hope to remain in vogue for a considerable time. One such trend which has taken the global market by storm is of On-Demand Food Delivery apps like Zomato, Uber Eats and many more. Let’s take and insight of how such food delivery app are developed.

How An On-Demand Food Ordering App Works:

  • A specific amount is charged from the restaurant owners in order to list themselves on the platform.
  • The users can choose what they want to eat from the available menu and order the same from the app itself.
  • Once a customer orders something, a notification is received by the restaurant after which they can accept or reject it according to the availability.
  • Once a customer orders something, a notification is sent to delivery person as well, which they can accept or skip.
  • The orders are easily traceable by the customers real-time through the application.
  • A specific amount is paid to the delivery person for every successful delivery.

Revenue Generation:

  • Subscription: Restaurant owners enlist themselves on the platform by paying a specific subscription amount. Option of premium subscription is also available for customers for which they have to pay some amount.
  • Commission: The platform keeps its own margin in each order, taking it in total from the restaurant after a specific period. This commission can vary from 5-20%.
  • Advertisements: Premium listings can be made available for restaurants which they can purchase for their marketing and advertisement. These appear as sponsored ads whenever customers open the app and thus attract the users’ attention directly.
