Food delivery apps are becoming a modern necessity these days and they had shown their true value during the pandemic, working as a lifesaver for people who are under quarantine.
However, some food delivery platforms take as much as 35% from each order from vendors and this can be taxing on them, given the increase in food prices and slowing down sales.
In an effort to support local small businesses, Maybank is venturing into the food delivery market by creating Sama-Sama lokal, which is an online marketplace that provides small businesses with an easy to use the platform to sell online and deliver their food to a large captive audience.
What’s best about this platform is it offers no additional cost in terms of commissions to local small businesses, unlike other food delivery platforms!
Through its digital banking service, Maybank offers you the same user experience as you would on any other food delivery platform. There’s even a self-pickup option and you can order groceries as well, all in the convenience of one easy to use the app.
To date, the platform has close to 14,000 merchants and it includes home-based food businesses, the ‘gerai burger tepi jalan’ as well as your regular char kuey teow hawker which you normally won’t find on other platforms. When you are ordering food from the MAE app, you are helping the community of small businesses in your area!
Meanwhile, Maybank is setting itself a policy of not charging any commission or charges. This allowed vendors to keep 100% of their earnings, and at the same time, users get to save on food delivery charges.
