  • I don’t understand what just happened.
    I mean you, as a customer, go to a website like (NOT or the doordash app) You place an order for delivery. There's a box for a tip, you put the tip in, then order it. - Source: Reddit / 27 days ago
  • Won’t let me dash in my area?
    Go to enter an address in your area, if the merchants are closed it will show or many might show pick up only. If that's the case then you might not be able to dash. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • the only orders i've been getting for hours are under $4 for over 2 miles and im withering away
    Go to type in an address in your area. If the average delivery time is 41 minute and over it's busy. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Orders just stopped?
    In my area (250k population) merchants are closing early due to no business, a lot were closed sunday all day. It's been only pizza hut and little ceasers at for orders, for me. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • A lot of merchants are temporarily closed until mon tue or we in my area
    Just checked and entered an address near the busiest section and a lot of merchants have been temp closed until the week. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • No Orders?
    Starting at noon went to and punched in an address in my area several times, all day it said delivery 15 min for most of the merchants which means it's not busy at all dd just wants dashers 'on call' lol When it's busy here the delivery is 44 min or more. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Why do so many DoorDash drivers work under multiple names or other peoples accounts?
    I can be wrong about this, because I have nothing to base it on... But I think that every dasher also has a doordash account. Go to and put in your credentials... See if you're able to log in. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • St Augustine Florida unavailable?
    Goto type in this address,. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • New to doordash, how do i get the free bag? (Canada)
    If you mean their starter kit, it was send to me 2 weeks after my first delivery. It has the small tote bag, the red card, a small hand sanitizer and a reusable mask. You will get an email says your order has shipped, with a CanadaPost tracking number. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Decline again
    Very strange. I went to and typed in an address I know is in a reg hot spot, and over half the merchants are not taking orders . .. Weird for saturday. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • So many broke people ordering food today.
    Load and put an address in that is in area, then you'll see the 'free delivery' offers . . .yeah eat wings w college football, delivered FREE ! - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • After Ian dashing. We didn’t get much in Charleston. But dash isn’t open to taking any scheduled time this week. Is this normal after a hurricane?
    Yeah but you can check this by going to type in your address, if all the stores say 'pick up only' then dash is disabled along with the schedule. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • Merge Items
    Long explanation is that Bitwarden does not know they are duplicates! It has no way of knowing that and androidapp://com.dd.doordash refer to the same service. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • is this a legit text from doordash? worried about clicking the link
    If it says doordash .com it's legit, if it says something wonky like DoorDashNow. Com or something off or DD., info then it's a bad site. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • SCAM on doordash- NEW YORK STYLE
    Ok, I did not realize that would not allow you to view the page unless you are logged in. There is also a yelp link, which does not require you to sign in. Im going to post a screenshot of the doordash page. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • Genuinely Curious…
    I literally looked up if youre allowed to multi-app on and it literally doesn't show you cant do it.... WHERE'D you see that you can't?? You're just mad that you didn't get your food on time once... - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • DoorDash text scam is a legitimate website. Where does that link take you? - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Really made it seem like it’s a sin to leave food at the door lmaooo. If she wanted a hand it to me order, she should have just selected that but nope she selected: leave at door: call (this number). I am not wrong to assume that she left that number incase I needed to contact her for entry.
    Actually...not everyone uses the phone to order. For instance, I work from home and have kids. I open up and make a nice order for me and the crotch spawn. In the notes, I put call upon arrival because I know that I will be in the other room (away from the PC and my mobile does NOT have the dd app on it) with loud kids and/or TV and/or dogs or whatever. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • The New Alcohol System
    You will never see a pre-loaded ID on a merchant requested order, and you'll also not see them if customer ordered via website as opposed to the app. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • Why does the doordash website load so slow for me?
    For as long as I can remember has always loaded so slow for me between pages. Sometimes upto 2-3 minutes when going from menu to check out or between tabs in the account page etc. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • I got scammed for $2,000 dollars last night on my Dasher Direct Card.
    Another pro-tip, you should be able to navigate to the link(s) they send you from the main page. If you go to and then scroll to the bottom you can reach the link I pasted above by clicking on "help." Of course there is no way to access the fake URL from any links on DD, so that should be your first and only clue. - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
