How much money are you really losing with Delivery Apps?

Today we are experiencing the "boom" of Delivery Apps. This market is projected to grow to $ 365 billion by the end of this decade.
Companies such as Uber, DoorDash and Postmates understood that betting on the comfort of customers would generate a substantial increase in their profits and nowadays more and more are joining this trend that only seems to keep going up. In addition from this factor, delivery apps had a greater boost in 2020 due to the pandemic caused by Covid-19 and the need for people to stay at home.
Unfortunately, although this brings many benefits to the customer, who often prefers to pay a small extra (or not so small...) on their orders in order to have their food delivered directly to their door and the restaurant that even triples its sales, the demand that has been generated for this type of services, led large delivery companies to charge excessive commissions for the use of their services.
A study carried out by the Techcrunch.com portal revealed that a person gets to pay up 40% more for an order made in one of these applications instead of ordering it directly from the restaurant or picking it up.
