I was really disappointed to find another thread that revealed how both Food Panda and Uber Eats discriminate against foreign drivers.
I want to change that.
I’m forming a LINE group that anyone can join to either order or deliver food: https://line.me/R/ti/g/6TeB6UNROa
To avoid potential legal issues, deliveries will be free. (You only pay for the food you order). This will work exactly the same way as if you asked a friend to grab food for you. You wouldn’t sue your friend for messing up your order or delivering food that gives you food poisoning.
If this takes off, I’ll apply for a business license and all that. But for now, this is a test to see if a service for foreigners by foreigners is viable. (Taiwanese please are, of course, allowed to participat, too.)
If you want to order food, please post the address of the vendor you want to the LINE group and what you want. A link to Google Maps would be appreciated. If you want to fulfill the order, reply to claim it. At this point, the buyer can either post your address to the group, or message the driver privately.
Please be patient when ordering food. I imagine that I’ll be the only driver, being that pay will be nonexistent until I can turn this into a legitimate business. (My delivering radius is limited to Taipei/New Taipei south of Taipei Main Station)
And if you’re interested in becoming a driver after this becomes a legitimate business, please let me know. (Or, if you’re bored and want to drive just for fun, you’re welcome to join!)
