Essential features of On-Demand food delivery apps

On-Demand food delivery apps need to have certain features if they want to be successful. Some of the essential features that every On-Demand food delivery app needs to have are:

Wide range of options

Every On-Demand food delivery app needs to have a large range of options that customers can choose from. The number of restaurants in these apps should always be much higher than what the customer will find when they step outside their door. There should also be options to meet certain specifications like dietary requirements and even price ranges.

Delivery system

The On-Demand food delivery app should also have a delivery system in place. Most On-Demand apps like Uber Eats use independently contracted delivery drivers for this. These delivery drivers need to be paid after every order that they fulfill so that they are motivated to bring quick deliveries to the customer.

Multiple payment methods

The On-Demand food delivery app should also be equipped with multiple payment methods such as credit cards, debit cards and even online banking. In addition to this, digital wallets like Apple pay, Amazon pay and Google pay should also be allowed in these apps as many customers prefer these above conventional payment methods.

Great customer support

There should also be regular customer support available in these apps. The customer support needs to be present round the clock as the customer may have an issue at any time. The representatives for the customer support also need to be trained to handle sensitive situations that the customer may face in the app.

 

Membership plans

The On-Demand food delivery app should also give out membership plans to the customer. This can be useful for especially those who are using the app on a regular basis. These membership plans should bring certain advantages that the user will enjoy, such as zero delivery charges on unlimited number of orders with Uber One in Uber Eats.

Live tracking features

Finally, the food delivery app needs to have live tracking features so that the customer can see the exact location of their order on the map that has been given. The live tracking should be coupled with push notifications which alert the customer of updates in the proceedings in the order.

 

Special offers and discounts

There also need to be special offers and discounts in the food delivery app in order to encourage customers. This is much needed, especially considering the fact that the prices of the meals in the app will be much higher than those in the restaurant.
