The COVID-19 pandemic has shown small business owners one thing, the need for an online presence. While many restaurants set up Seamless or Uber Eats in order to keep operating through the shutdown, many of these systems can take a huge chunk of your profits. The same problem can occur for retail stores. Some online ordering companies can take as much as 30% of the sale; forcing you to either raise prices or suffer losses. Now that you’ve seen how much online ordering can benefit your business; it’s time to take control, with your own online ordering website.
The Problems with Major Online Ordering Systems
Big brand systems like Grubhub, Slice, and others aren’t looking out for you. They want to make a profit selling your food. Many of the more widespread online ordering systems control your point-of-sale system and can charge you extra fees, even on non-order phone calls. There have even been class-action suits against a number of these corporations because of sneaky fees and charges that cost restaurant owners hundreds.
