Food delivery service Careem NOW, which launched in 2018, has said that it will reduce its commission by 15 per cent for restaurants across Dubai.

Restaurants in the emirate have been ordered to stop hosting customers on their premises and are only allowed to operate delivery and takeaway services of their food as part of the UAE’s efforts to contain the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

“Careem pledges to assist its partners, customers and captains during these confusing times. Being a leader in the delivery industry, we need to be the supporting force behind our communities and our partners to push through this phase and ensure the business continuity of local merchants on our platform,” said Gheed El Makkaoui, general manager at Careem UAE.
