In an effort to recognize the hard work and the efforts of its partner riders, foodpanda has now enhanced the perks and benefits that it extends to its partner riders. With the everyday heroes’ well-being in mind, foodpanda expanded its partnerships and business relations to offer its riders extensive rewards programs, incentives, and partnership discounts for their work and everyday expenses.
In total, foodpanda has partnered with 28 establishments who will provide the riders with perks and privileges that they can avail at partner establishments including gasoline stations Caltex and UniOil who offer discounts on gas per liter and lubricants; and motorcycle shops Ropali and Rusi who offer loan and discounts on cash installment payments. foodpanda riders who purchase a Rusi or Ropali motorcycle are entitled to a straight discount of P5,000 for cash payments, and a P400 monthly rebate for those who opt to pay in installments.
“Delivery riders are the everyday heroes of the pandemic. Despite the challenges that they face on the road amidst a pandemic, these riders continue to work without hesitation, knowing that people rely on them to get their meals,” said Daniel Marogy, Managing Director, foodpanda Philippines. “Apart from strengthening foodpanda’s position as a strong player in the country’s q-commerce industry, these partnerships with various businesses will also spell convenience and monetary benefits for one of the company’s important stakeholders–the riders.”
Through Panda Quest, a program that provides attractive incentives to top-performing riders, rewarded riders Last June with a Rusi motorcycle. “Nasa biyahe ako noong nalaman kong nanalo ako dahil minemention ako ng mga kaibigan ko sa aming group chat. Noong na-confirm ko, nagpasalamat agad ako sa Panginoon at tinawagan ang asawa ko para ibalita sa kanya ang good news,” John LLoyd Del Castillo, the top-performing rider of June and winner of the Rusi motorcycle, said. “Sobrang laking tulong ng motor na ito sa pang-araw-araw na pangkabuhayan naming pamilya lalo na’t malapit nang manganak ang aking asawa.”
Apart from the grand prizes that riders can win every month, daily incentives are also provided under a program called “Pandawards” to motivate them to do their best. They can claim daily rewards by simply accumulating points called “Bamboos” for good performance during a delivery. Among the items that can be claimed through the Kapanda app are jackets, helmets, rice, and more.
