How Delivery Hero Increased Order Conversions By 4.5%


The App

Delivery Hero is the leading global online food ordering and delivery marketplace present in 40 countries around 5 continents. When compared with competitors, Delivery Hero has the number one market position in regards to restaurants, active users, gross merchandise value or website traffic.

The Problem

One of the main KPI’s of the company is to increase order conversions and revenue for the Delivery Hero App. They had received negative customer feedback about the length of the menu pages, and they were seeing a high drop-off rate on this screen. In an effort to understand and improve the customer experience and increase their KPIs, Delivery Hero looked to experimentation.


Delivery Hero’s general hypothesis was that by switching to an accordion style menu, as opposed to the longer scroll, customers would be able to search by category to help narrow down the menu and find their food faster. If this worked, Delivery Hero expected higher conversions to checkout and more orders placed.

The A/B Test

Using Code Block, Delivery Hero ran an A/B test on their menu page to convert more users to checkout. The control was the original menu and the variant was the condensed, accordion menu style.

Control:                             Variant A:

The Results

With Variant A, Delivery Hero saw a 4.5% relative increase in click through rates and order conversions compared to their original menu.


From this test, Delivery Hero learned that usability issues and internal debates can be resolved through data gained from experimentation.

“Testing should be a normal part of the product life cycle. Everything that is changed on a product can and does impact the customer experience.”
