IFood announced that it will not charge commission fees for restaurants in Amapá until the end of 2020. In addition to the amount charged for delivery charges, fees for in-app orders and website withdrawals are also temporarily removed revoke. The goal is to help facilities in the state reduce damage from a 22-day outage.
As a part of its restoration, the platform also provides easy credit lines for restaurants in Amapá. To do this, you must be registered with the iFood Digital Accounts app, directed to companies. With it, the merchant can create a free account and request credit analysis.
According to the head of Sustainable Solutions at iFood, Luciana Vaz, the company has taken these measures because for many restaurants, delivery is one of the most important sales channels today.
“We are temporarily free so they can sell their goods and recover capital,” he said. “Knowing that raw material losses and other situations require larger capital volumes quickly, there is also a financial solution that allows the restaurant to resume operations.”
iFood will pay extra for the delivery person
IFood also announced that, to cover the recorded loss during the blackout, it will make an additional transfer to Amapá deliveries until next Thursday (10). According to the company, the extra payment in the state will be equivalent to the daily average shipper has recorded over the past three months.
In partnership with the NGO Ação da Cidadania, iFood will distribute basic food baskets to families at risk in Amapá. The company has raised over R $ 100k in 5 fundraising days through its in-app donation area and will distribute 23 tons of food, which will help approximately 10,000 people in the state.
