Online food delivery apps are soon going to implement a mandatory platform fee which will be separate from the cart value. That means the customer will have to pay this fee apart from the cart value.

As far as Zomato is concerned, the company had recently revealed that it has achieved profit in the first quarter for the financial year 2024. The company has become profitable for the first time. It is also being said in the reports that Zomato has currently implemented the platform fee only for some selected users. This has not been implemented on Blinkit, a grocery delivery platform. The fee of Rs 2 constitutes 0.5% of its gross order. Zomato received 176 million orders in the second quarter ending in June. If these orders are seen on daily basis, the company receives around 20 lakh orders every day. Accordingly, by charging Rs 2 as platform fee, the company can earn Rs 40 lakh per day. If seen per month, the company can earn additional income of Rs 12 crore per month by charging a nominal platform fee of Rs 2. However, details regarding this have not been released officially by Zomato yet.
