DoorDash menu prices FAQ

Does pricing impact my visibility on DoorDash?

Each customer experience on DoorDash is unique. Among other factors like popularity, speed, order accuracy, and beyond, menu pricing is simply one variable that affects visibility for restaurants. 

Do my in-store prices need to match my DoorDash menu prices? 

DoorDash does not require restaurants to match in-store prices on delivery orders. Restaurants can continue to make their own delivery menu pricing decisions and assess the trade-offs between volume and unit margins. 

That being said, DoorDash encourages restaurants to maintain consistent prices to maximize growth. While DoorDash does not require delivery prices to match in-store prices, we recommend pricing as close to in-store as possible. While it may seem like higher margins could increase your profits, our data suggests this is not necessarily the case. Based on a 2023 internal one month study of over 4500 small- and medium-sized restaurants, those that inflate their menu prices on DoorDash saw an up to: 37% reduction in sales, 59% reduction in conversion rates, and 78% reduction in re-order rates. 

Why is pricing criteria considered to become a Most Loved restaurant?

The Most Loved program recognizes and rewards the top-rated and most reliable restaurants on DoorDash, making them eligible for more in-app visibility, recognition, and other exclusive perks. In order to be considered for the Most Loved program, menu prices must be comparable to in-store prices, alongside a variety of other operational metrics.

We hope this helped you input your DoorDash menu prices. As a company, we strive to bring the highest quality service to consumers, while increasing revenue for merchants, and creating more earnings opportunities for Dashers.
