US-based restaurant software company Toast has decided to roll back its recently introduced $0.99 processing fee for online orders.

The company unveiled its new pricing model in June this year, under which customers were required to pay a fee of $0.99 on orders of $10 or higher.

The restaurant tech firm will be removing the processing fee by the end of this week.

Toast noted that it made a “wrong decision” and after a careful review and additional feedback, it has decided to axe the fee from its digital ordering channels.

Toast CEO Chris Comparato said: “After extensive discussions with many of you, we have made the decision to remove the $0.99 order processing fee from the new version of our digital ordering suite by the end of this week.  

“While we had the best of intentions — to keep costs low for our customers — that is not how the change was perceived by some of you.
