Dutch multinational online food ordering and delivery company Just Eat Takeaway.com has decided to raise the commission rate for restaurants in the majority of European markets by 1%, Reuters reported.

According to a spokesperson for the company, the increase has been triggered by growing operational costs and rising inflation.

The spokesperson further stated that the decision marks the first time in five years that the company has increased its rate in European markets.

However, Just Eat Takeaway.com’s commission rate remained unchanged in the UK, where it competes with food delivery platforms Deliveroo and Uber Eats.

A spokesperson for KHN, an association that represents restaurants and hotels in the Netherlands, has said that the organisation received very few complaints about the higher commission rate.

The KHN spokesperson was quoted by the news agency as saying: “The KHN does see that due to the dominant position of platforms, leisure businesses are unable to move freely.”

Germany’s Uber Eats spokesperson noted that the company is not planning to increase its restaurant commission rates at the moment, however, a Deliveroo spokesperson said that the company could not immediately comment on the issue.

Last month, Just Eat Takeaway.com and Domino’s reportedly reached a partnership in the UK and Ireland, which will allow the former to deliver Domino’s pizza in the two countries.
