US Prime members can now get free delivery through Grubhub.
Amazon’s premium customers can now get unlimited free deliveries when they sign up for a Grubhub+ membership. Normally, the service costs $9.99 a month.
Both companies went into a partnership and a deal that could make Amazon a Grubhub stakeholder. According to parent company Just Eat Takeaway, Amazon can get a 2 percent stake in Grubhub with up to 15 percent if performance metrics are met, and it could broaden the Prime appeal and boost the meal delivery industry at the same time.
Food delivery has banked sharply since pandemic restrictions have been lifted, but it seems that Amazon is still interested in entering the food marketplace with the latest deal. Doordash has lost around 50% in stock value at the beginning of the year, with UberEats experiencing the same. As per Bloomberg’s Second Measure, Grubhub has 13 percent of the US meal delivery market.
