Foursquare just announced a partnership with Delivery.com to enable Foursquare users to order food, alcohol and groceries for delivery right from the Foursquare app. The integration is made possible thanks to a mobile commerce platform called Button, which also works with companies like Uber, Airbnb and Ticketmaster.
For you, this means that you can just pop open the Foursquare app, discover a restaurant or other merchant that offers delivery via Delivery.com. You’ll then be directed to Delivery.com’s app for placing your order and making a payment. Delivery.com is available in over 38 cities in the U.S. and has over 10,000 local businesses on its platform.
“At Foursquare, we’re obsessed with providing the best experiences for our users, so we like working with Button to fast-track new features,” Foursquare Director of Business Development David Ban said in a release. “We love being able to offer market-specific services that enrich consumer experiences and help consumers connect with great local merchants — like through delivery via delivery.com.”
Foursquare had previously integrated with Seamless and DeliveryHero. This latest partnership allows Foursquare to better compete against Yelp, which offers on-demand food delivery via Eat24. Earlier this year, Foursquare raised $45 million in equity financing and also got a new CEO, Jeff Glueck, who had been serving as COO and overseeing the company’s enterprise businesses.
