Motorbike delivery service sees boost in Indonesian food market

The Go-Food has reportedly transformed Jakarta's economy, economists say.

According to Nikkei Asian Review, the food delivery service Go-Food, in partnership with the smartphone app Go-Jek, has quickly taken over as the market leader, expanding into second-tier cities and partnering with popular chains.

Go-Food lists some 100,000 stores, from local satay stalls to fast food chains to pricey sushi restaurants. Users can place an order to a restaurant as far as 25 km away, and there is no minimum price.

According to the report, another factor fueling Go-Food's popularity is Go-Pay, the electronic wallet feature rolled out in April 2016. The company said that more than half of the orders on the app, including ride-hailing and other services, are paid using Go-Pay.
