September & Q3 Highlights

  • In September, the order volume has grown 375% year-on-year, compared to September 2022. This results in an overall Q3 year-on-year increase of 364% in order volume.
  • 1979 first-time users placed an order in September 2023. That is a 237% increase in first-time customers year-on-year, compared to September 2022. Overall, 6118 first-time users used one of our products to order a meal, a 362% increase year-on-year to Q3 2022.
  • 517 new user accounts were created in September 2023. A year-on-year increase of 189% in new user accounts signed up on a monthly basis. 1535 new user accounts were created during Q3 2023, a year-on-year increase of 295%.
  • 31 new merchants have been onboarded in September of 2023, of which 39% also subscribed to one of our sub-based services. Last month marks the highest rate of new merchants on a monthly basis, shared with June of this year.
  • In Q3, 63 new merchants were onboarded on the Bistroo platform. A 11% decrease compared to Q2, during which 71 new merchants were onboarded. However, Q3 is seasonally the slowest quarter for onboarding new merchants due to the summer holiday season. We have additional scaling of operations planned for Q4 for this process. We’ll share more updates on this shortly.
