Make every dollar count with Sponsored Listings

Sponsored Listings are ads that are featured in highly visible places in DoorDash, like the homepage and the top of relevant search results. They’ll help your store stand out from the crowd, and unlike ads on other platforms, you’ll only be charged for orders placed through your ad — not for clicks or impressions.

On average, businesses that run ads on DoorDash earn $6 for every $1 spent on their ad.**

Increase order volume and size with Promotions

Incentivize new, existing, and/or lapsed customers to order from your store with a discount, $0 delivery, or a free item. When you run a promotion, your business will be prominently featured to your target audience in the Offers tab on the DoorDash app.

On average, stores who run promotions see up to a 20% sales increase.***
