Thursday 25 June 2020 11:34 CET | News

Square has announced the availability of on-demand delivery for Square Online Store, for sellers have access to the tools they need to sell online quickly, efficiently, and affordably. 

With on-demand delivery, Square Online Store sellers can dispatch a courier through delivery partners for orders placed directly on their website. The on-demand delivery for Square Online Store helps sellers to take control of their fulfilment process by offering delivery to their loyal customer base directly from their own website.

When an order is placed on the seller’s online store, a courier from the restaurant’s delivery partner is dispatched to the business location, picks up the order, and delivers it to the buyer. The buyer receives text updates with links to live maps to track delivery progress. Sellers pay a flat fee of USD 1.50 per order to Square, plus a fee to their delivery partner that is calculated in real-time based on distance and other factors. Sellers can pass this fee entirely to the buyer or offer custom delivery promotions. 

The Kebab Shop, a local chain of restaurants in US, has been using on-demand delivery for Square Online Store during the company’s beta test and said it helped with the costs management and retaining customers during recent months.
