For some other brothers, this number may be 200,000 -300,000 VND.

“In other words, with an income of A, before, the cost I spent was only 500,000 VND, but now the price increases, it must be 650,000 – 700,000 VND. Therefore, the increase in the price of the car company is also a part of the cost. how to offset the costs that drivers have to bear for a long time”, said Mr. Hien.

The minimum price of the GoFood service increased by 1,000 VND compared to the previous one.
