Boost has rolled out its own food delivery service, called Boost Makan, allowing users to order food and delicacies from around their area. This is offered on top of its existing partnerships with other food delivery platforms, such as DeliverEat, Pop Meals, and eatigo.
Boost Makan currently lists six categories of cuisines comprising of numerous F&B merchants and restaurants, including local, Western, and vegetarian food. To access the feature, tap on the “Food” tile on your main page, and you’ll find Boost Makan listed along with Boost’s other food delivery partners. The app will also prompt you to switch on your GPS if you have not already done so.
Once you’re on the Boost Makan page, go ahead and browse through the available merchants and restaurants. Before you can make any actual orders, however, first-time Boost Makan users are required to verify their account by keying in a verification code from Boost, after which they’ll also need to create a Boost Makan profile.
When ordering, you’ll have the choice to arrange for a delivery or to self pick-up. Some merchants may even allow you to go for a drive thru or book a dine-in reservation. If you’re making orders through the feature, Boost Makan will show you a clear breakdown of the pricing structure, inclusive of the service fee and tax, as well as delivery fee if you’re getting your order delivered. When you’re ready, go ahead and pay for your orders; payments can only be made via your Boost Wallet.
To celebrate the launch of Boost Makan, Boost is currently running a campaign that offers RM5 cashback to users who spend a minimum of RM20 in a single transaction via the new feature (excluding service fee and tax, as well as delivery fees and other charges). The campaign is ongoing until 31 December 2021, although the campaign period is divided into two phases (Phase 1 until 30 November 2021, Phase 2 from 1 – 31 December 2021).
With this new feature, Boost has followed in the footsteps of apps like Grab and Shopee – both of which also have their own food delivery services, namely GrabFood and ShopeeFood.
