This service is currently on a promo period, being offered at Rp 10 thousand flat per order. As we tested the service several times, we found out that its algorithm is quite precise, reflecting the immense database that it has.
Besides presenting Go-Mart, Go-Jek also introducing the new appearance of Go-Food within the update. It also equips Go-Food with My Restaurant feature, which facilitates users to pick restaurants that they once ordered from. After testing it out, we discovered that the new version of Go-Food has way better performance than the previous one. The database it has also seems to be more imminent than before.
Go-Mart will face direct competition from HappyFresh and Sukamart, as it completes Go-Jek’s massive expansion. The company proviously introduced Go-Box to accommodate people’s logistic needs.
