Hidden costs in apps for food delivery drain your wallet, say economic experts.
Even the most popular and profitable platforms have hidden fees, and they are really sensitive for the budget, says EatingNYC Alex Matthews. She counted the cost of Postmates, DoorDash and Uber Eats, and notes that every consumer overcharged about 20%.
Postmates was the most expensive option, although he has the most options of where to deliver the food. Matthews notes that if every customer ordered a medium dinner at Postmates once a week, the fee can be up to $ 1,000 per year.
“These applications are very expensive because they involve numerous parties. A lot of extra transactions that increase the cost of the order of food”, – said the expert.
