More ways to grow your business
When you think of DoorDash, you think of delivery — but the DoorDash Merchant Suite is delivering more.
Grow online with DoorDash
Unlock the active DoorDash customer base by offering pickup and delivery on the DoorDash app, Marketplace. Plus, increase sales by tapping into DashPass subscribers, who spend more per order and order more often on average. Included in every partnership is Storefront: online ordering for direct, commission-free orders though your site, social media, and Google Search & Maps. Or use On-Demand Delivery to offer delivery from your own app or site by tapping into DoorDash’s network of Dashers.
Attract new customers
Sponsored Listings give you prime real estate in the DoorDash app so you get noticed by new customers. Promotions let you offer discounts or free items to encourage customers to place orders, and Storefront promotions use similar incentives to get customers to place commission-free orders directly on your website. Brand Licensing lets you add a revenue stream by selling an established, well-known brand out of your restaurant’s kitchen.
Increase order volume & size
Increase order volume and size (and, as a result, profits) with Promotions that provide customers with discounts or free items only when they reach a specific minimum order size. If you already offer beer, wine, liquor, or cocktails in-store, add alcohol to your DoorDash menu to help increase ticket sizes and reach customers looking to order both food and alcohol.
Take your business to the next level by expanding with DoorDash Capital. Easy, accessible financing can help eligible merchants invest in new equipment, open a new location, hire more employees, and much more.

Partnership Plans are available for restaurants with 75 or fewer locations in the US. 6% Pickup is available to all partners in the US who comply with the DoorDash Merchant Terms of Service, including having DoorDash Pickup menu prices match in-store prices.
Commission is a percentage of the order subtotal for each order processed through the DoorDash platform. DoorDash charges commission rates to bring value to your business and community; commissions cover advertising and marketing, delivery driver costs, customer service for consumers, merchants, and Dashers, technology platform costs, and more. Learn more about pricing.
*DoorDash "Premier" Growth Guarantee: Accept at least 20 orders per month or DoorDash will refund your commission costs for that month. Partners are eligible for this rebate only if (1) they cancel fewer than 5 orders that month and (2) maintain "open hours" on DoorDash for 90% of the Store Hours that they have set in the Merchant Portal.
You can change your plan any time in the Merchant Portal. Plans may take 5 business days to process changes, so it is not feasible to change your plan more often than about one time per week.
We encourage merchants to try a plan for a minimum of 2-3 weeks before switching in order to get the most representative picture of how well each plan works for your business.
DoorDash does not charge an activation fee, subscription fee, software fee, cancelation fee, contract fee, or any hidden fees. However, certain fees may be applicable for additional products or services as you opt in, such as:
If you choose to use the DoorDash Tablet to accept orders, you can use it for free for the length of your trial, then $6 per week in the US, $3 per week in Canada, and $0 per week in Australia and New Zealand. You can also accept orders via point of sale integrations, email, or fax at no cost to you.
Marketing fees if you choose to use Promotions or Sponsored Listings to grow your sales.
Payment processing fees only for Storefront orders, which are commission-free.
Merchant partners can either choose to receive a weekly direct deposit from DoorDash or opt in to daily payouts at no charge.
DoorDash Basic partners start with a 7-day free trial, and DoorDash Plus and Premier partners start with a 30-day free trial. This means delivery and pickup commissions are 0%, so you can try the partnership plan* that works best for you. Tablet fees are also $0 for the duration of the trial. After the trial, there is a weekly tablet fee of $6 in the US, $3 in Canada, and $0 in Australia. Point of sale integrations are free.
After your free trial, you’ll be enrolled at the commission and tablet fees indicated in your "Merchant Signup Sheet."
You can change your plan at any point in your trial (and after your trial) within the Settings in the Merchant Portal.
*Partnership plans (Basic, Plus, Premier) are available for restaurants with 75 or fewer locations in Canada or the US.
If you switch plans in the middle of your trial, your free trial ends, and you will be enrolled in your new plan, paying that plan’s commission rate, within the next 5 business days. If you do not want to end your free trial early, we suggest setting a calendar reminder and logging in to update your plan 5 or fewer days before your trial ends.
