Other food delivery platforms or third-party platforms will also charge fees. The feature of his App is that it is free for both merchants and consumers. It not only provides a platform for merchants to display their products, but also completes the function of online settlement. In the future, it plans to make an expanded version of Yelp, which will include the stores of family workshops in the search content, so that consumers can have more choices.
