“Based on our incentive scheme, we estimate that delivery riders can earn up to S$700 a week on average and I am sure this presents a very viable option for most riders whose take-home income could have been impacted by the recent rise in petrol prices. Coupled with the lower commission rates for merchants and one of the most affordable delivery rates compared to market incumbents, we want to contribute positively towards the whole food delivery chain in Singapore and to further grow this segment.”Lim Ben-Jie, airasia’s newly appointed super app Head of e-Commerce as at 1 March 2021
