Last week we looked at how Uber Eats stacked up in terms of value for money. This week we look at more food delivery services to see which one gives the most bang for your buck.
Easi Eats is exactly what Auckland needed, a delivery app that covers all the Asian eateries in the city,. If you’re craving a midnight beef noodle soup or some hearty dumplings from barilla, Easi has it all. Its interface is kind of clunky and there are a lot of mistranslations but it gets the job done. Easi Drivers around the CBD deliver by electric bike so the average delivery time is about an hour but the food does come piping hot. Easi also charges one of the lowest percentages of commission compared to other delivery apps, on average, 16-18% is charged to restaurant partners.
FlamingoFood launched shortly after the lockdown ended, they are a local E-scooter startup based in wellington but their pink E-scooters can be seen all over Auckland. Their delivery model lets riders use their scooters to deliver food at no cost to them. FlamingoFood’s app is easy to use and fairly simple to order, but since it’s a fairly new app, It doesn’t have as many options yet. They charge 20-25% commission to restaurant partners depending on distance but they only charge a flat fee of $5 for deliveries.
DeliverEasy is another local delivery app, they are established in 13 cities and have just started operating in Auckland. They have quite a wide selection of restaurant partners and have both web and app deliver options available. They have fast delivery times, no more than 30 minutes on any order and their app is easy to use. They charge restaurant partners 22% in commission.
Menulog mostly does pickups but they have a wide range of delivery options and real-time discounts on restaurants. Their App is extremely easy to use and simple to place an order. They halved their commission rates from 14% to 7% for Lockdown relief for small businesses and now is at 14%. Menulog has over 800 restaurant partners in New Zealand so you’re bound to find a good feed on there
