First, I hope your restaurant is surviving and thriving. The world is on its way back to normal. Together we'll make it through!
The pandemic has only accelerated what was an emerging trend - conducting business online. And online food ordering is no exception. But the real question for restaurant owners is:
Are you leveraging online ordering as much as you could be? Or are you seeing your profits slowly chip away in fees charged by delivery platforms?
"Orders keep coming in from GrubHub, but money is not coming into my pockets!"
If you're tired of not being able to capture orders online, or paying too much in fees to platforms like GrubHub, then you'll love the solution we propose:
Use an online ordering page that charges no fees!
Specifically, our online ordering platform 1 Stop Order. Simply sign up, upload your menu items and you'll get an online ordering page ready!
"Well, I can take online orders from GrubHub, UberEats and Doordash. Why do I need 1 Stop Order?"
Great question! Here is the biggest reason you should add our 1 Stop Order to your online ordering platforms.
Pay WAYYYYYYYY less in fees than you would on other platforms.
As of the day this article is written.
Grubhub charges an average of 15-25% commission per order.
UberEats charges restaurants 15-30%, depending on whether you use their drivers or your own.
ChowNow charges restaurants $99 monthly and a $199 setup fee for each location.
Eat24 charges a fixed percentage which results in 12.5% of a restaurant’s net online sales.
On average, delivery platforms charge anywhere between 15-30% in fees.
We at 1 Stop Order charges you $0 FEES. We make up for that by charging a moderate 1%.- 2% convenience fee to your customers.
As you can see, you could easily save an average of $535.5 in fees every day!
Not to mention, you also get to keep 100% of your tips.
As an example, here is the ordering page of a restaurant on our platform: Hacienda Guadalajara in Woodinville, Washington.
It is a familiar and user-friendly interface. Customers can easily order and pay with just a few taps and swipes.
Your ordering page will automatically open/close based on the business hours you set. You also have the option to do that manually, in the case of holidays.

The checkout process is super streamlined as well. The ordering page is 100% optimized for mobile devices. So the customers are guaranteed a smooth and hassle-free ordering experience.
Another big advantage of having your own website is having less competition.
Imagine a scenario where a customer opens GrubHub and sees a dozen other restaurants just like yours. Similar cuisine and similar price range. What's preventing them from trying out other restaurants rather than yours?
But if you have your own website, the customer will have only one option: YOU.
One of the most common traffic source to websites is Google. Whether it's Google search or Google map. And the beautiful thing is, your website will show up as a button on the right! Even better, this button is usually shown above those delivery options. See the examples below:

Customers also do a lot of searches like "XYZ restaurants near me" on Google Map. In this situation, your website will also show up prominently. Like this:
