The costs for development, deployment and maintenance of such an on-demand delivery app depends on what goes into developing it – the number of hours, complexity of UI/UX, Analytics and BI integration, Number of active users expected and so on.
Every app has a robust backend needed to manage the contents on the app and the obvious and apparent the frontend part. The app publisher, or you, would need a control-panel or a dashboard to edit the settings and control every aspect of the app – users, offers, product & services listings, partners, vendors, payments and transactions, etc. Such an app will also require integrations with many third-party services like Google Maps, Payment Gateways, etc.
Some apps will have multiple frontends as well, like an Uber for passengers, Uber for drivers, and Uber for fleet owners. So, there will be added costs for development and maintenance of those too.
