Lawmakers Lobbied to Block Proposed 15% Cap On Commissions

DoorDash, Uber Eats, and Grubhub have all lobbied in recent weeks against legislation to cap their fees, according to the Senate office of the Legislature’s economic development committee. (The other major delivery company, Postmates, has a small market share in Massachusetts and is being acquired by Uber.) Joining them in opposition is TechNet, a trade group that represents tech executives and their companies.

TechNet, meanwhile, argues that delivery companies are providing an invaluable service during the pandemic and shouldn’t be penalized. The group considers commission caps to be unnecessary government intrusion, a regulatory overreach in business-to-business contractual agreements.
