As per the company, the food delivery service will be available during 12 PM till 11 PM. Users can place orders during this time and make payment via Ola Money or via Cash, however, part Ola Money and Part cash transactions are not supported at the moment, as it is when you book cabs/auto via the Ola App.
How To Use It
Adding on, the food delivery, currently will only be applicable on the current location by default (as picked up by the app automatically), thus one cannot order food to be delivered on some other location. User can call the delivery boy and provide exact address for delivery.
Interestingly, Zomato has also recently entered into food delivery. Moreover, Uber has also tried food delivery service in a couple of countries.
Being a market leader in cab booking space in the country, with a number of investors backing it up, provides Ola an ease in experimenting with new services, and moreover, going further, this will help it to expand into wider domains.
