Amazon launches restaurant delivery while taking a big 27.5% from restaurants

Amazon PrimeNow Delivery

Amazon PrimeNow, just like Uber, Eat24, Seamless, Grubhub, now offer restaurant delivery.

You can find the news all over the internet, so I won’t bore you with the details, but it’s only available in a few cities.

But just be aware of the one little aspect…. Amazon has reportedly charged restaurants 27.5% of the check, which is double what some other providers charge. Amazon told Recode this would “[take] the burden of delivery off a restaurant’s back.”
