Foodpanda, online marketplace for food delivery, has tied up with PhonePe to improve the digital payment experience for its users. Making the announcement on Tuesday, Foodpanda said users paying through PhonePe could avail an introductory offer of a cashback of up to Rs 100 on their first order.

Apart from PhonePe Wallet, consumers can use options such as Unified Payment Interface (UPI) and credit and debit cards to make payment for their orders on Foodpanda.

Anuj Sahai, Head of Partnerships & New Initiatives, Foodpanda, said, “The partnership is in sync with the country’s swift movement towards digital payments considering they are less time consuming, secured and reliable. Like this, we intend to enter several other partnerships in the future to create a robust food tech ecosystem for all our stakeholders.”

Speaking on the partnership, Pradeep Dodle, Head-Business Development, PhonePe, said, “Online food ordering is a fast growing use case that has gained significant popularity among consumers. With this partnership with Foodpanda, PhonePe customers would be able to pay for their food orders faster.”

The announcement has come at a time when the cricket season is under way, during which restaurants see an increase in the number of orders for home delivery of food.
