Y-Combinator-backed startup Tablevibe has partnered with Philippine payment gateway Xendit to launch its commission-free online ordering system in the country. The restaurant tech venture successfully launched in Metro Manila following a surge in demand for its solutions in Singapore and Australia.
The move empowers any restaurant to set up a free webshop and accept pickup and delivery orders directly from its customers. On-demand drivers are sourced automatically and deliver food in a 10-kilometer radius for a P60 flat fee. As a result, restaurants can save up to 70% in online food ordering costs.
Restaurants typically use their cost savings to partially cover delivery fees, resulting in lower prices for consumers. Tablevibe’s deep integration with last-mile delivery services allows restaurants to deliver orders instantly without hiring their own drivers.
One of Tablevibe’s launch partners is CloudEats, a rapidly expanding cloud kitchen group with operations in both the Philippines and Vietnam. “Tablevibe helps us engage directly with our loyal customers, creates seamless commerce experiences, and offers great delivery fulfillment rates. It’s an exciting new channel for us,” CloudEats CEO Kimberly Yao said.
Xendit Managing Director Yang Yang Zhang said that its partnership with Tablevibe marks an essential step on its mission to build the digital infrastructure for Philippine-based businesses. “It enables restaurants to accept payments via credit cards, debit cards, and e-wallets like GCash through a single integration. Together, we’re excited to support eateries and boost their online sales across the country,” he said.
“We saw our global revenue surge more than 500% year over year. Together with our strong local partners, we are incredibly excited about supporting local restaurants and making their offerings even more accessible to food lovers across the Philippines,” Tablevibe Chief Operation Officer Mathieu Sneep said.
