In General Discussion
In the final analysis, the core of this matter is whether Meituan has passed the "big data killing". "The same store, the same delivery address, and the same order time node, after the membership is opened, why is the delivery fee higher than that of non-members?" This is indeed in line with the phenomenon of "big data". In fact, before this incident was exposed, users had already expressed their dissatisfaction with Meituan on social media and online communities. In Baidu Post Bar "Meituan Takeaway Bar", you can see many users sharing their experiences of being "killed by big data". Some netizens posted screenshots of themselves paying for take-out at the same restaurant in the post bar - as time went on, the amount of take-out payment became higher and higher, in order to express the suspicion that Meituan's take-out is "killed by big data". However, since it is not seen in the picture whether the dishes ordered by the netizen are consistent, and the time points of ordering takeaways in the picture are quite different, it cannot be used text message service as proof that Meituan is "killed". Out of the principle of seeking truth from facts, the author decided to personally go to the Meituan APP to check one or two. Since the author is a member of Meituan Takeaway, for comparison, after borrowing a friend's non-member account, the author first modified the takeaway address after logging in to the account, so that the takeaway address of the friend's account is the same as the takeaway address of the author's original account. Then the author ordered food through two accounts in the same restaurant where the previous member account often ordered food, and found a little tricky about it. First of all, when two accounts enter the page of the same store, there is a biggest difference - the full reduction strength at the top of the order page is different.
