Tapingo launches delivery service

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

Tapingo, the company which enables US college students to order food through an app and then skip the queue when they arrive at the restaurant to pick it up, will be launching a new on-demand delivery service when students return to their campuses this week.

The Tapingo app is currently used by students on more than 100 campuses across the US and sources report that the company processes more than 25,000 transactions a day during term time.

Tapingo’s on-demand delivery service will pitch the company against well-established players like Postmates. The Tanpingo’s USP – which could be a blessing or a curse, time will tell – is that its delivery service will be provided exclusively by student couriers.

In an article published in TechCrunchDaily yesterday (25 August) , Daniel Almog, CEO at Tapingo, said that the student couriers will work on their own schedule and have the option to turn on the app whenever they want to accept a delivery.

Tapingo will initially launch its delivery service in “a few dozen” campuses this fall – but it anticipates that the coverage will extend to more than 100 campuses by the end of the year.

The company is also reported to be launching another new feature, called “scheduled ordering”, which will allow students to place an order up to 36 hours in advance for pickup at a specified time.
