Prepaid cards, cash on delivery, net banking, e-wallets, and debit/credit cards are some of the commonly available payment methods. Apart from this, online food delivery assists in easing the ordering process, reducing hassle, miscommunication, and misunderstanding, enabling efficient customer and order management, and providing a wide variety of cuisines. As a result, online food delivery is gaining traction in the United States as it offers various discounts on these apps that cater to the varying needs of consumers.
