Did you know that Doordash also offers pickup services in addition to delivery services? Although most people are more familiar with the company’s delivery services, it actually has a subscription-based pickup service.
Fortunately, switching from delivery to pickup on Doordash is a fairly straightforward process. In this blog post, we explain how to switch from Doordash delivery to Doordash pickup and vice versa. You’ll learn what each option entails and how to switch between these two different services as necessary.
What is Doordash Delivery?
Doordash delivery is a food delivery service that delivers food and other items from participating restaurants. Customers place an order through the Doordash app and a Doordash driver picks up the order from the restaurant and delivers it to the customer. The cost of this service is usually a $5-$7 delivery fee, plus the cost of the food itself. If you decide to sign up for Doordash delivery, you will likely only be able to pick up shifts during busy times like lunch, dinner, and on the weekends. This is because Doordash drivers are independent contractors, and they choose their own hours. If you pick up Doordash delivery as an extra income, you will likely be paid per delivery. In this case, you may be responsible for paying for gas, vehicle maintenance, and other expenses, depending on your contract with Doordash.
What is Doordash Pickup?
Doordash pickup is a service that allows you to order food from your favorite restaurants and have it delivered to you. You can either choose to have your food delivered to your doorstep or pick it up yourself.
