Is "requesting for" correct?

Recounting the “utterly disappointing” experience, Estelle Liu said she had placed an advance order on foodpanda’s grocery delivery platform on May 22, requesting for the groceries to be delivered to Chen Su Lan Methodist Children’s Home on Monday (May 24) morning.

Is “requesting for” correct?



Yes, in my opinion it’s correct.

As I see, the verb ‘request’ also means ‘seek’, ‘demand’ etc which does not require the preposition ‘for’.

However, if we rephrase the sentence as “… requesting that the groceries be delivered …” or as "… with a request for the groceries to be delivered … " it becomes acceptable.

Nevertheless, we do often hear and see the use of ‘for’ whether ‘request’ is used as a verb or as a noun!
