Guilty of ordering that one cup of bubble tea through GrabFood, just to satiate your sweet tooth? Do you often order a meal for one when you are too lazy to head out under the hot sun?
Looks like we will have to think twice about doing so from 13 March 2020 (10am) onwards as GrabFood will be introducing a minimum basket value for all their deliveries!
In order to ensure that every order made on the platform is worthwhile for merchants and their delivery partners, minimum spending starting from S$8 will be indicated on the merchant page depending on the time of order and the area in which orders are placed.
If your order doesn’t hit the minimum value indicated, worry not. You will still be able to get your food delivered by paying a small order fee to make up the difference in price.
In addition to the minimum basket value, customers will also be charged a compulsory S$0.20 platform fee on all orders from 27 March 2020 which will go towards improving the overall GrabFood experience and service quality.
With the current on-going COVID-19 situation, food delivery services are playing a more significant role in our daily lives. Hitting the minimum value of S$8 might be difficult for those staying alone, so gather some friends or even your neighbours the next time you plan to make your next order!
Dates & Times: Minimum basket value applicable for all GrabFood orders now | Platform fee will be charged for all orders from 27 March 2020
