With COVID-19 cases rising in the country, which once again prompted stricter restrictions on movement in the Greater Manila Area, on-demand food delivery service foodpanda encourages customers to opt for contactless delivery.
Here’s how: (1) Place an order and opt for online payment via credit or debit card or GCash; (2) Go to the rider chat function on the app and inform your rider that you are opting for contactless delivery, you may include instructions on where to leave your orders to make sure social distancing is followed; (3) Food will be placed at the designated drop-off spot; (4) The rider will notify customers that food has arrived via the rider chat function or call/SMS; (5) Customers may use the chat function to confirm receipt of their order.
Throughout the delivery, foodpanda says, one-meter distance will be maintained between the rider and the customer. All riders are instructed to wear their masks at all times, wash their hands every two hours and after each time they handle a delivery, and to immediately seek medical check-up through the company’s affiliated clinics and hospitals if they have symptoms of illness.
