Guyana’s first cashless food ordering, delivery app launched


Guyana’s first cashless food ordering and delivery app, GTEats, was officially launched on Wednesday for persons within the greater Georgetown area.

The app is now available for free download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store and is designed for persons who prefer a digital, cashless food ordering and delivery experience.

Delivery fees are calculated based on distance and the App allows consumers to track their order in real time along with the name and photo of the delivery driver, a press release from the company on Wednesday said.

The App features secure encrypted payments with no card information stored in the App or on the company’s servers. A convenience feature uses the consumer’s unique device ID to authenticate their payments, eliminating the need to re-enter sensitive information.

“Our service is designed for the busy, hungry consumer who wants to order and pay in seconds without the hassle of waiting on hold, or tracking down a delivery driver,” Co-Founder and General Manager of GTEats, Shoaib Juman-Yassin is quoted as saying in the press release.

“For local food businesses, our platform provides them with an opportunity to reach new customers without the headache of juggling incoming calls, WhatsApp messages, dealing with credit cards or managing the delivery process,” Juman-Yassin said.

Thus far, the App features German’s Restaurant, Shanta’s Puri Shop, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, Mario’s Juice Bar & Grill, Big Kahuna Burger, Sarawak Malaysian Restaurant and Subby’s Sandwich Shop, among others.

There are no upfront fees for restaurants that qualify and the company partners with local delivery companies with a service model that improves income and safety for drivers, the release noted.
