Contactless delivery has been rapidly rolled out on all the large food delivery apps, but it's not clear how it works or where you go to select this option. Check out the videos below to see how it works.
In light of the rapid rise of Coronavirus cases, cities and states across the country have taken unprecedented steps to contain the spread of this novel disease. A common precaution governors and mayors alike have taken to enforce strict social distancing practices has been to close restaurants and bars where large groups of people cluster.
This has left many consumers and restaurants across the country in need of an alternative method to deliver and receive their meals. To handle the increased demand for food delivery, while also practicing safe social distancing measures, the major food delivery companies in the last 2 weeks have introduced a new option: contactless delivery.
What is Contactless Delivery?
"Contactless delivery generally means that those ordering food or other supplies can get them delivered without coming face-to-face with their delivery driver."*
Food delivery has quickly become a crucial service during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, each food delivery service has introduced it in a different, unique method of contactless delivery on their apps. Because it was needed so quickly, contactless delivery was sometimes introduced on these apps in a haphazard way.
Below, we will show you how each food delivery app's contactless delivery option works.
