Satisfying My Cravings with FoodPanda
As a freelancer who chose to work at home and avoid the manic rush of everyday Manila traffic, I am grateful for the existence of the internet because we can now do almost everything online, from movie streaming, shopping, and even ordering food! Of course, this was all made possible by the rise of apps that offer various services like foodpanda. If you're not a familiar with foodpanda, it is an online food delivery platform that enables users to access a variety of restaurants from their mobile phones or desktop computer. I have been using foodpanda every time I am craving for something and I love that I can eat my favorite food without the hassle of going out, dealing with traffic, or waiting in line. It's super convenient!
How To Use the foodpanda App
Open the app and the first step that you need to do is to enter your location. You can opt to use the current location function (permission is required to use this function) or set it to a different place if you want the food to be delivered elsewhere. The second option is great if you want to send food to a friend or family.
To ensure food quality, only a list of restaurants within three (3) kilometers will show up.
Now that you've chosen a restaurant, it's time to choose from the menu. The prices of the menu, the minimum order, and delivery fee are shown in the app. Another great thing about foodpanda is that you will also be notified if there are any ongoing promos offered by the restaurant.
Note: For most restaurants, the delivery charge is just P59.00 no matter how much your total food bill is.
Foodpanda has over 1,000 partner restaurants in metro Manila and Cebu.
Feel like eating Japanese? Or maybe Mediterranean cuisine?
Whatever you're craving for, foodpanda will be there to satisfy your cravings.
When you are done ordering your food. you can now proceed to checkout. Depending on the restaurant, foodpanda accepts cash on delivery and online payment via all major credit cards and Paypal.
Always remember to check that everything — order details, delivery address and contact details — is correct before paying.
Once the order is received and has been confirmed by the restaurant, the foodpanda app will activate its built-in timer. The default waiting time of this timer is 60 minutes.
If you have other concerns, you can talk to a customer service representative via the Live Chat function both in the app and desktop site.
