Not too long ago, ordering food online was a slow process, using your phone, calling the number of the restaurant you want to try, placing the order, and paying the delivery guy. Nevertheless, in the last few years, many companies or even startups have begun to start a new industry, an online ordering and delivery industry, by using websites and smartphone applications, and making our lives easier.
It is here where Foodpanda shows up, offering the possibility of ordering food with free delivery via internet, either from your computer or from your smartphone thanks to its free application that you can download.
