Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Safe & Responsible Ordering

How Does The Order Process Work?
  • We will provide customers with a searchable list of vendors that are available at the time they wish to order. The vendors information will be displayed on the platform in the search grid and on the map. The customer will need to click on the vendor’s profile, to navigate the vendor’s menu and select their meal. The vendor is then notified immediately after checkout. You will be billed once the vendor accepts the order.
  • When the customer’s order is accepted, they will receive real-time notifications as their order is being completed. If the customer selects the option to pick-up their order, the vendor’s location will be provided in addition to the order details.
  • If the customer selects the option to have their food delivered, a driver will be notified to handle the delivery. The customer will be able to track the delivery in real time as the driver is in route to them. In addition, the customer will also be able to access the driver’s profile for additional security.
