ONDC (Open Network for Digital Commerce) is back in news as it crosses 10,000 food delivery orders in a day! Also, because the ONDC online food delivery service is now available in major Indian cities. Thus, we have got you the Best ONDC Food Delivery Apps so you can munch on day & night!

Best ONDC Food Delivery Apps to take on Zomato & Swiggy!

You can order food from ONDC restaurants via Paytm, Pincode,MagicPin, Ola, TataNeu, Mystore, nStore, and Qaddoo apps only, as of now. MagicPin is the official ONDC Food Delivery App as Paytm and TataNeu just host this service (you will see ‘powered by MagicPin’ or 'serving by MagicPin' at the bottom). Besides, Pincode has been launched by PhonePe app.

ONDC Food Delivery Apps are providing heavy discounts + Free Delivery (upto 4 kms) + Flat ₹50 off(can use Coupon "ONDC50") as part of their promotional campaigns. However, they levy Taxes and a Packaging Fee at checkout. I found Packaging Fees on some Mumbai restaurants to be around ₹30 (nearly a delivery fee), and that too for 1/2 items (burgers, sandwiches, etc)! However, the final price is way lesser when compared to Zomato and Swiggy, which is why ONDC Food Apps are getting popular.

What are ONDC Food Delivery Apps, and Why are they Here?

ONDC Food Delivery Apps discount

The ONDC Food Delivery Apps connect you directly to the restaurants. A single app hosts multiple ONDC restaurants where prices are decided by the restaurants themselves following ONDC’s T&Cs. The government has got ONDC to break the monopoly of Zomato and Swiggy. This will help people get food delivery at reasonable prices along with access to more restaurants / food stalls.

ONDC Food Delivery Apps vs Zomato/Swiggy

I have picked up some promotional food items (Mumbai restaurants) from Paytm/MagicPin ONDC food delivery section and compared their prices with those on Zomato/Swiggy.

Food Item

ONDC Price

Zomato/Swiggy Price

Restaurant / Food Brand

2 Burgers (Bun Tikki + Spicy Aloo Crunch)

₹50

₹119

Wendy’s

Bombay Cheese Sandwich / Chicken Tikka Whole Wheat Sandwich

₹50 / ₹58

₹119 / ₹129

FreshMenu

Mexican McAloo Tikki Burger

McDonald’s

₹87

₹139

Cafe Coffee Day (CCD)

Red Velvet Cup Cake

₹69

₹119

CakeZone

Veg Hakka Noodles

₹74

₹115

Chinese Wok

Thus, you can see that ONDC is truly delivering at a very lesser price comparatively. However, the restaurant list here is just 25% of Zomato/Swiggy which is where it needs improvement. Also, how efficient is its delivery service, is a question! Not to forget, Zomato Coupons and Swiggy Coupons are the reasons why people enjoy them.

How to Order Food Online via ONDC Apps?

As told earlier, currently there are 8 ONDC food delivery apps from where you can order just like you do in Zomato and Swiggy. For Paytm users, search “ONDC”, and select ‘Food’ under ‘ONDC Store’. MagicPin App users will get the ONDC food delivery section on the homepage itself via a banner. It also has its own food delivery section (popular for discounts) so don’t get confused! Finally, Bangalore (now many more cities) users can download the Pincode app or find it in their PhonePe app itself.

Below is the ₹117 Bill of Food I ordered from Paytm ONDC. The same would have costed me ₹223 on Zomato and ₹198 on Swiggy after applying discount coupons.

Magicpin is the worst and your order depends on your luck, plus high delivery charges and even after 50-60 percent discount you end up paying almost full amount. So actually they dont provide quality service, customer care is almost zero

First of all, When you are doing comparison you should not take discount coupon in comparison which is only for first 1-2 orders max, same offer given by zomato.. But other comparison I like it over the price.. But currently it's only magicpin.. Ondc model is not other app like magicpin, I still can't see any restaurant direct listing (atleast in hyderabad ) that will be the actual benefit of ONDC

I haven't taken discount coupon into consideration while comparing. agree that restaurants should come up with listing on ONDC.

Doesn't look like ONDC will challenge Swiggy/Zomato in terms of discounts. But, prices are definitely better with ONDC.
