How Does DoorDash Work?
When a user enters their address on the DoorDash website or app, they’re presented with a huge array of local dining options, ranging from fast food to high end restaurants.
Once the order is placed a driver (or ‘Dasher’) will pick it up from the restaurant and deliver it right to the user’s door.
It’s a classic delivery experience, but with the freedom to choose exactly the food you want from anywhere nearby.
As a company, DoorDash is a dedicated to supporting local businesses. They see their service as a way to expand the reach of local stores and restaurants, and they also create numerous job opportunities for those who live in the cities where the service operates.
The company encourages locals to ‘Start Dashing’ and enlist as a delivery driver or cyclist, providing a refreshing, flexible way to earn income doing something a bit outside of the box.
In 2018, through a partnership with Walmart, DoorDash expanded its reach to include grocery delivery. Since then, they have also purchased several other delivery-related companies, making it clear that they have big plans for the future.
DoorDash currently accepts payment via the app or website from all major credit and debit cards, as well as various other options including Apple Pay and Google Pay.
