The profit surge was mainly attributed to a 59.9 percent surge year-on-year (YoY) in revenue, due to the increase in delivery fee and commission revenue by SR 159.5 million and SR 81.8 million respectively.

This is due to the increase by 48.1 percent in average users number in the first half 2022, compared to the corresponding period of last year, despite the slight decrease in monthly average orders per user to reach 4.5 orders in the first half 2022, compared to 4.6 orders in the corresponding period of last year.
