6 Years Imprisonment

According to the bill drafted in Philippines, if anyone who cancels the meal after ordering can face up to 6 years of Imprisonment as well as ₱2,000 fine.

As the coronavirus continues strangling the world every business is badly hit especially the food business. All restaurants, cafes, and all other eating places are closed during the current situation. Closing down these places opens another door for online food ordering service as we see a tremendous surge in online ordering.

However, it is also observed that numerous customers cancel their orders which would be a discredit to the rider who is taking your food along with a waste of time.

To cater this situation a bill is drafted and forwarded to the House of Representatives in the Philippines against those who order their food via an online service but later cancel it.

According to reports, the bill recommends that if anyone who cancels the meal after ordering can face up to 6 years of Imprisonment as well as ₱2,000 fine.

The bill is to secure the delivery boy who pays for the food and purchase it from a restaurant, and then upon delivery gets cash from the customer who gave the order. So any person who cancels the order the delivery boy has to pay from his own pocket and therefore a waste of money along with time for the rider.

During the pandemic coronavirus, Google revealed through its stats that there has been an increase of 300% of online food order service searches.
