The order is then prepared by the restaurant, picked up by one of Foodora's couriers (foodsters), and delivered to the customer “in about 30 minutes". Foodora provides both B2C and B2B food delivery services.

How do Foodora drivers get paid?
Foodora workers get paid $4.50 for every order, which roughly corresponds to the $3.99 delivery fee levied on customers. Beyond that, they make $1 for every kilometre plus tips.
