Delivery firm Glovo announced that it will be dropping its service charges in order to make it more affordable for users to order their favourite meals and groceries. This will involve the minimum delivery fee for food going down by 50% while that of groceries dropping by 18%.
“We’ve dropped our delivery fees to make it more affordable to order your favourite meals and groceries. Our minimum delivery fee for Food is 50% less starting from KES 50 down from KES 100, and 18% less for Groceries starting from KES 165 down from KES 200,” Glovo said in a statement.
The drop is definitely a positive one at a time when Kenyans have been forced to go back to lockdown amid a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases. As many seem to go back to the dark financial days as we experience in 2020, this move could be seen more as an act of goodwill from the company.
