NEW YORK, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today online ordering gets even more powerful and convenient. Thanks to a partnership between Facebook Messenger and delivery.com, a leading destination for on-demand ordering, you can now order food from restaurants on delivery.com directly within Messenger.
delivery.com, whose website and mobile apps drive online orders to more than 12,000 local U.S. businesses, has worked with Messenger to power a new bot that leads customers through the food ordering flow. Prompted by key phrases like "I'm hungry" or "let's order food" that appear naturally within a conversation, the new Messenger integration aims to provide a frictionless food ordering experience that anticipates demand and serves Messenger users with a selection of restaurants at an optimal point in time.
"Messenger is helping to innovate the way customers order online and improve the discoverability of restaurants," says Jed Kleckner, CEO of delivery.com. "We're delighted to be able to offer users an easy way to order food on-demand by meeting them in the context of their conversations, and to provide delivery.com's large merchant base with a new channel to drive incremental orders."
The new ordering functionality is enabled only within Messenger and comes at a time when Facebook is announcing many exciting developments and integrations at F8, their annual global developer conference.
delivery.com empowers the neighborhood economy by enabling customers to order online from their favorite local restaurants, grocery stores, wine and spirits shops, and laundry and dry cleaning providers. Every day, delivery.com customers explore their communities and order from more than 12,000 local businesses while at home, at work, or on the go. With headquarters in New York and a growing presence throughout the U.S., delivery.com makes ecommerce an integral part of local daily life, helping customers shop, businesses grow, and neighborhoods thrive. delivery.com is a trademark of Delivery.com, LLC.
