Germany’s largest online food delivery platform has swelled to over 13,000 restaurants and accepts Bitcoin for payment. The Berlin-based Lieferando.de operates across the country to deliver all types of culinary dream dishes, from fancy to fast food.
Online customers can pay with Bitcoin, credit cards, Sofort or PayPal. When paying with Bitcoin, the company says it does not charge any fees, while it costs an additional 6%, to pay with PayPal and credit cards.
Lieferando is owned by Takeaway.com, one of the largest online food ordering websites in the world, which first started accepting Bitcoin in July 2017.
The company says the payment option has been well received by its customers. Takeaway also powers Bitcoin payments for deliveries in the Netherlands, Austria and Poland.
