Just Eat increases European restaurant commissions, excludes UK market

Just Eat is increasing the commission it charges restaurants for its services by around 1% across most European markets, according to a Reuters report.

“I can confirm that in response to rising inflation and higher operational costs, we are increasing our commission rates for the first time in five years in certain European markets,” a spokesperson told the publication.

However, a key exception is the British market, where the rapid delivery company competes with the likes of Uber Eats and Deliveroo.

A spokesperson for Uber Eats in Germany said the company was “not planning any change in the service fee for restaurants at the moment.”

A spokesperson for Deliveroo also said the company could not immediately comment.

Delivery Hero, a German business which owns a majority stake in Barcelona-based food delivery company Glovo, did not reveal whether or not it had raised commissions.

“We are constantly looking at numerous actionable levers, including commissions, to further increase profitability,” the company said.
