How does Deliveroo work?
Deliveroo’s delivery portfolio is expansive, serving hundreds of chain restaurants (as well as a number of high quality independent restaurants). Deliveroo works by having the customer enter their postal code into the Deliveroo App (or the Deliveroo.com website) and the company will present consumers with a selection of restaurants in close probity that are available for delivery.
From there, you pick your restaurant, place your order and wait for one of their drivers to pick up your food and bring it to you. However, Deliveroo states that if you are looking for ‘low-quality take-away restaurant’s, they are not the app for you and they do not offer that type of selection. Deliveries from Deliveroo start at noon each day and go to 11 at night.
Deliveroo does not accept cash unfortunately, but does accept cash tips and they are always appreciated. The minimum order value depends on the restaurant but the average order total you have to reach before restaurants allow delivery is usually an average of fifteen euros. For orders that are less than 15 euros, Deliveroo will add a two-euro surcharge to their delivery fee of 2.50 euros.
