The company, which spends only about $50,000 a month on marketing its online food ordering service, charges an average commission rate of about 8.5% (for restaurant-delivered orders), a major contributor in its financials.

While a few months back, the restaurant supply was available from 12,000 restaurants, it has now gone up to 18,000.
