Swiggy now allow users to pre-order food upto 48 hours in advance

The food ordering and delivery platform Swiggy now allow users to pre-order their meals up to 48 hours in advance, at zero delivery charges.In case of cancellation, the users can do so on the app itself, anytime before the order becomes live. Launching its new service, Swiggy Scheduled, the company said that the users can place their orders in slots of 30 minutes, a minimum of two hours and maximum of 48 hours in advance.

Also said that “some of the best and most reliable restaurants on the platform will be available on Swiggy Scheduled”, which may mean that the service is not applicable to all the listings.

Swiggy Scheduled has already been launched in Hyderabad and Chennai and would be rolled out in other cities by the end of March.

MediaNama’s take

It is unclear if orders get accepted and confirmed at the time of order, or at the time of delivery time. In case, the confirmation happens an hour or minutes before the delivery time, then the feature may not be very useful.

Swiggy’s highlights

This month, Swiggy raised Series F funding of US $100 million from its existing investor Naspers and a new investor Meituan-Dianping, China’s service e-commerce platform, to strengthen its technology and introduce new products and services.

This month, the company also expanded its services to Jaipur, and Chandigarh, and is now available in 10 cities—Delhi, NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Jaipur and Chandigarh—with about 20,000 restaurant partners live on its platform.

Competition

Swiggy has to keep it game up, as players like Zomato and UberEats, and now Ola (after FoodPanda’s aquisition) are giving a tough competition to the company. Most recently, Zomato raised $150 million from Alibaba’s Ant Financial.
