Yogiyo Delivery is Korea’s number one food delivery app. At any time of the day, literally everywhere, be it your home, a park, or even a tourist attraction like the Seoul Tower, you can order food conveniently and swiftly with this app. Restaurants, coffee shops, convenience stores, there is almost no place that you cannot find on Yogiyo. The ordering process is not complicated at all… unless you cannot speak Korean. For foreigners in Korea it can be a huge obstacle to order food because the app is completely in Korean. So here I made a simple Step-By-Step guide on how to use the Yogiyo Delivery App.
Enter your address
When downloading the app for the first time there will be a pop up asking you to allow them to track your location and access your pictures for reviews, so just click the ‘확인’ button, which means ‘confirm’ in English. After that you are going to have to agree to the terms and conditions so click ‘전체동의’ meaning ‘agree to all’ and then ‘시작하기’ meaning ‘start’.
Now as the final set up step ‘배달 주소 설정’ you will need to enter your address in Korean. You can either enter your street name and building number, or the area name and number, or the area name and building name. For example, if I enter my street name and number it would be ‘연세로 2라길 42’, where ‘연세로 2라길’ [yonseiro 2ragil] would be the street name and ‘42’ the building number. After finding the right location you can input more detailed information like your room number, for example ‘401호’ [Room 401]. Then you just need to click ‘요기로 배달’ and you can start browsing the app.
Choose your category
On its main page Yogiyo will present you with a lot of different categories to choose from and also additional search tags such as recently popular restaurants in your area ‘요즘 뜨는 우리 동네 음식점’.

Pick your restaurant
After choosing a suitable category Yogiyo will present you with all the restaurants. If you see a restaurant you like you can click on the icon and check important information like the restaurant reviews and stars, the estimated delivery time ‘배달예상시간’, the minimum delivery amount ‘최소주문’, and the delivery fee ‘배달요금’.
Pick your dish
When choosing a dish you can browse the restaurant’s subcategories. For example the ‘Nene Chicken’ in Edae will provide you with their ‘인기메뉴’ popular menu, ‘후라이드’ fried chicken, ‘양념치킨’ spicy chicken and more. Other common categories to check are ‘기타’ or ‘사이드’ for side menu and ‘음료수’ for drinks. Add whatever you want to order to card, check the ‘가격’ price, ‘수량’ amount and ‘추가’ extra add ons. Then click ‘주문하기’ to order.
Check your ‘주문 정보’ order details first and add a phone number through which they will contact you for your order. Then choose a payment method ‘결제 수단 선택’.
You can either pay directly on the app through ‘신용카드’ card payment, ‘카카오페이’ KakaoPay, ‘네이버페이’ NaverPay, ‘휴대전화’ Pay by Phone Bill etc…. The other option is to pay the delivery driver ‘현장 결제’ by cash ‘현금결제’ or card ‘신용카드’. Look at your ‘결제 금액’ total order amount one last time and finish with ‘결제하기’ payment.
