The story isn’t much better for the delivery app Grubhub , which will charge restaurants a base fee of 15% of every order plus tack on a credit card processing fee, order processing fee, and a delivery commission of an additional 10%.
The fees charged by all meal delivery services are already extreme: “typically, 20 to 30 percent per order,” sometimes more. They were often ruinous to restaurants even in better times. GrubHub’s fees can easily total more than a third of the pre-tax total, by their own calculations.
No, you do not need to tip the restaurant . Any tips you decide to provide will not be reimbursed by Grubhub or added to the diner’s total. If a restaurant adds a tip or tells you that you are required to tip them please contact our Care team directly through the Grubhub for Drivers app for assistance.
Since it all occurs without your restaurant’s consent, Grubhub can’t charge you the steep commissions it levies on partnered restaurants (which, by the way, it plans on increasing). Instead, your customers end up paying Grubhub high prices to cover all the costs.
Grubhub is launching a new subscription program for its customers that will cost $9.99 per month . The Grubhub+ program offers unlimited free delivery and 10% cash back. Most food delivery services already have their own subscription programs, but customers are not flocking to pay a monthly fee .
Since delivery rates can depend on restaurant pricing, sales tax, and extra fees, there’s some debate on which food delivery app is cheapest. However, a Marketwatch study compared identical orders on a few food delivery apps and found that Uber Eats was among the cheapest.
There you’ll see that, before tip, GrubHub averaged slightly cheaper than DoorDash with DashPass (but the numbers are so close as to be basically identical). However, if you tend to tip in cash or pick your own tip, the results show that GrubHub and DoorDash with DashPass are the best (and are roughly equal).
Unsurprisingly, their system resulted in restaurants being charged with bogus fees. One New York City restaurateur reported being charged more than $10,000 by Grubhub . Another restaurateur from Philadelphia filed a class-action lawsuit against the company over its fees.
Grubhub has controlled roughly 30 percent of the market over the past three years, according to Second Measure, while Uber Eats and DoorDash are both on the rise. It was a close call, but Uber Eats comes out on top as my pick for best meal delivery app.
Instead of tricking diners into unknowingly hurting local restaurants, ChowNow provides a better way to order — a way that helps them support restaurants without sacrificing the convenience they expect. Uber Eats takes up to 40% of every order. Grubhub takes up to 40% of every order.
If you don’t leave a tip on the app then the total payout will be lower than other orders. You risk getting cold food as driver after driver rejects the order and the restaurant makes the food not knowing when the driver will arrive.
Why It Pays to Tip Something you might not know about Grubhub is that drivers can actually see just how much you’re tipping —before they accept your delivery request. “If you’re only tipping something like 10 or 40 cents, there are drivers who will open that order, see it, and reject it,” Curtis says.
When you tip using Grubhub or Seamless (which is owned by Grubhub ), all of the tip goes to the delivery person, and it’s not used to subsidize workers’ pay, Grubhub confirmed to Slate.
