  • i think it’s also worthy to note that delivery apps exploit disabled people who can’t just jump in their cars or walk down the street to get fries from mcdonald’s. i think in general the "just go pick it up" argument is invalid because some people can’t. delivery services may seem accessible, but nobody is benefitting from paying $20 for a $6 burrito because they Literally have to. they sometimes have to rely on delivery services for things like that. there are people who physically cannot leave their homes for anything that may seem easy and convenient to able-bodied people.

  • Here in India we have just two giants Swiggy and Zomato. The situation is so bad that Uber Eats went out of business here and had to sell its stake to Zomato. Both these apps inflate the price of the food items, have shady extra charges/delivery fees, and yet somehow are loosing money each year. The idea is to loose money to gain market share and become an indispensable part of our daily lives, so that when they finally start making money by raising prices and what not we can't move away from them. Currently waiting for my order from Swiggy.

  • I don't order delivery anything except for dominoes, and I use their website in that rare event. Other than that, I either pick up my fucking phone and call in a to go order, or a march myself in (w/mask) and place the exact same order to go. Fuck all of the delivery apps. I refuse to use any of them.

  • C'e qualcosa su cui riflettere: le conclusioni tratte sulla base dell'analisi di Internet aggiungono solo differenze di fazione e sono distribuite in modo associativo tra i settori. Considerazioni ideologiche di ordine superiore, cosi come un nuovo modello di attivita organizzativa, sono una tappa qualitativamente nuova nel sistema di formazione del personale che risponde a bisogni urgenti.. また、最新の手法の導入は、専門家コミュニティの進歩を実現するのに最適です。日常の実践は、私たちが選択した革新的な道が、下された決定の経済的実現可能性の必要性を明確に修正することを示しています。 ターゲットオーディエンスの代表者の高いレベルの関与は、単純な事実の明確な証拠です。将来のプロジェクトの高品質のプロトタイプは、緊急のニーズを満たす人材育成システムに関して各参加者が独自の決定を下せることを明確に識別します。多様で豊富な経験から、かなりの共感で薄められた合理的な思考は、一連の革新的なプロセス管理方法を考慮に入れて、生産計画に多くの特別な活動を含める必要があることを示しています。

  • Why not just have a delivery app that just picks up food and brings it to you but like, the restaurant doesn't have to pay the delivery app. That way, the app paying more for the food is worth it and it's just like Uber.

  • I work at a restaurant that uses door dash and Uber eats but we also have our own delivery service and I can tell you that it is a frickin nightmare dealing with them.I know if there’s a mistake with your order you have to deal with doordash or Uber but most people call the restaurant directly to complain.So my boss ends up giving discounts or credit for their next order when he’s is paying them to fix the problem(that’s what their cut is for right?)Also we had an incident where there was a power outbreak and for some reason we couldn’t pause the app so a bunch of orders were still coming in.We had to call them and after 45 min on the phone they finally canceled all of the orders.Imagine waiting for your food for 45 min just to get it canceled...

Regarding your question at the end ("what's the verbiage you always use"), people constantly mistake the company I work for, for another. Like, they'll say, "So are you still working for GrubHub?" I just say yeah because I know what they mean and it makes no difference. 😆

  • Dashing is really fun and convenient for me as a college student. I've gotten to know the area better, make ~$250/week in peak holidays, more active steps throughout the day, and listen to recorded class lectures while on the road. However, I myself will NEVER order through a delivery app if I can help it. The best way to support local restaurants is just by going to their website and ordering takeout/delivery there.

  • door dash is pretty good if you get dash pass through Chase Sapphire rewards. You get 1 year free of dash pass and you only spend like 3-4 bucks in service fees per order. Yeah they probably jack up the price but thats not too bad. sounds like the only losers are the restaurant so suck it!

  • i hated working for postmates. If you had a problem, it was nearly impossible to reach them. They had no phone number to call if you needed to reach the company (maybe they do not I haven't worked for them in two years), so if something messes up on the app you have to email them and hope your email gets read quickly? It's ridiculous. I worked for postmates in LA, so often times you would pick up an order in the central city areas and then drive all the way into the hills to drop off the order to rich people. One time (around 11pm) I drove an order all the way up to the delivery location and gave the customer their order. When I got back to my car I could "deliver" the order in-app because I didn't have an internet connection. So I thought, okay no problem, I'll just make my way down the hill and I should be fine. BUT NO. I get to the bottom of the hill and the app tells me I can't deliver the order so far from the delivery location. I try to contact postmates and they never got back to me. i was waiting for hours trying to figure out a way to complete the order so I could move on and do more orders. Finally, at some point, I think it got worked out. but this was just one of the terrible experiences I had. there were many more.

  • funny how here in indonesia food delivery service is super popular. bcs to have their own service delivery is pretty expensive and usually only fast food that have that service. also, food delivery service provide smaller restaurant exposure and a chance to compete with bigger restaurant. it's nice and a win win. the driver seems to be treated well. especially in this pandemic where we have to stay at home.

  • still blown by the fact that doordash has lost that much money. THEY DONT EVEN GIVE PROPER REFUNDS, JUST CREDIT TO USE THEIR APP MORE. (at least in my experience). I also think the unreliability of it is partially due to the drivers, simply because anyone with a phone and a car can sign up to work for these apps, myself included. But I guess you could technically write that off as one of their faults as well. It’s just unfortunate these corporations are taking advantage of such vulnerable times. I don’t get how they’re still to this day hijacking money from their customers, employees, and the businesses they work with, yet they’re still losing SO MUCH MONEY????

  • I've only used any of these services once, and I don't think I'll ever do it again. I literally only wanted my acid reflux medicine (which was around 21 dollars). It was freezing cold here, and I'm a college student without a car, so getting it at a store was physically impossible for me. The price was 31ish dollars counting the tip, and that pissed me off. I should've just sent it by mail and waited a few days.

  • Little update for ya: British Columbia, Canada capped the commission percentage that the app could collect from the restaurants, so Skip the Dishes added the “BC” fee of $1 that the customers have to pay on every single order. It gets better. That BC fee? It’s TAXABLE. That’s right, we pay tax on a fee that serves no purpose except charging the customer MORE money.

  • My husband used to do deliveroo delivery on the side and they constantly screwed him over in so many ways and would rip him off and not pay him every opportunity they could (and boy did they go out of their way to make those opportunities magically appear every day multiple times a day). Often they would cancel the order out of the system after he already delivered it or while in process so he couldn't get paid and other gross shady stuff like that every freaking day. They constantly stole the money he rightfully earned and would screws up with the addresses sending him across the city when he specifically logged into work within the local area and would send him outside of the agreed upon zone like crazy far away (and he was on a bike making it impossible and not what the delivery person agreed to do). Ohh and the insane way they did the schedule, you would have to pick your shifts at least a week or so ahead but they set it up so that some drivers get preferential treatment when it comes to choosing shift, the more delivery you do after a set number the earlier you can choose your shifts and you have to requalify every week so if you get sick one week you can't get any decent hours the next week because you are held back from being able to choose a shift while some other drivers get special early access and take all of the good shift where you can actually make any money. The way they treat the delivery people is absolutely disgusting and actually seeing how they repeatedly stole from and screwed over my husband make me feel sick and I will never use their service. He worked his ass off and wasn't even making minimum wage most of the time.

There’s now a sushi vendor in my supermarket with the exact same stuff, and it costs $15AUD total. I’m in walking distance too, so it take less time to get it myself than deliver. I think of Doordash and Uber Eats as convenience takeaway - I only order from there because my laziness outweighs the ridiculous markup, but usually I’ll order directly from the restaurant

The lower cost attracts more users to the platform. The company destroys all the existing businesses in that space. Once these companies crush all the competition, they raise rates back around to what they used to cost. Now we have to pay taxi rates for our uber, with no taxi alternative.

  • I like a lot of people that work at restaurants really hate these companies because it's extremely insulting that their drivers get tipped while the people making the food get slammed so many times with customers wanting so many things ordered and get disrespected and complained at by people that don't even have much reliability behind them. The restaurant I work at always gets orders on top of orders from the big 3 and our online system, and we simply cannot keep up because we don't have enough staff to make as many orders and then to resupply our stock. If these places tip, many restaurants should be the ones getting most of that instead, I really hate the fact that restaurants are bigger sources of income to more people, especially someone like me that can't drive and they are the most at risk for getting shut down for not meeting demand for rent and other fees that are already high enough, for some companies that take advantage of customers and don't worry as much about their business tanking thanks to high demand.

  • As a driver, these companies still do use tips to subsidize pay. Doordash will say I will be paid $7 for an order, but after I drop off I learn that $5 of that is tip, and $2 is actual pay. Postmates doesn’t do this, but they also don’t show pay up front so it’s a gamble with every order, and customers on Postmates don’t tend to tip much if at all. Grubhub is better IMO, they at least show full pay up front and customers tend to tip better. This all applies at least to my area, each area is different.

    • I should add that I am able to make a decent living with delivery as my side hustle. As a driver, you’re allowed to pick which orders your accept and decline, so you don’t have to take low pay/no tip orders. As long as you’re picky with your orders you’ll be fine. There’s a lot of other positives such as being able to work on your own schedule and manage yourself. It’s not for everyone but works great for a lot of folks.
