After Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a lockdown, making clear to “use food delivery services where you can”, online ordering app EatDirect.com is to waive their £500 set-up fee. This development will allow any local food business to manage their new or existing takeaway service efficiently with no upfront costs to their business.
The EatDirect app will allow struggling businesses to offer and manage their takeaway service with ease and make a huge saving on commission. Removing their set up fee in addition to offering a 0% commission policy has saved existing customers thousands of pounds annually while competitors charge upwards of 30% of every order placed.
Gerry Drew, General Manager of Web.com UK, who operates the service, said: “It usually costs a business £500 to get set up on our ordering app, but we wanted to do whatever we could to help out in these stressful times, so we’re now offering the service for zero set up.”
The company has already been contacted by hundreds of frantic restaurants and bars looking to switch to a takeaway and delivery model to keep their business thriving during the coronavirus crisis.
Drew continues: “Our model uses a straightforward monthly fixed fee so business owners know exactly where they stand. We are turning around personalised apps as quickly as possible so our new customers have minimal disruption to trading.”
