Commissions and fees
With DoorDash, you’ll never pay startup fees. Here’s how pricing works for each DoorDash product.
When customers order from you through DoorDash, we take a commission, which is a percentage of an order subtotal, to cover our costs.
When you use your in-house team to deliver DoorDash orders, we charge a reduced commission fee and you set the delivery fee and keep the tips.
When customers order from Storefront, we charge an online credit card processing fee of 2.9% of the total transaction amount + $0.30 per order.
CC processing + $0.30:
When customers order from your website, app, or other channels with Drive, we charge a flat per-order fee for using our drivers to deliver orders.
Frequently asked questions
DoorDash charges fees and commission rates to bring value to your business and community. Here are some of the items they cover:
Advertising and marketing: Being on the DoorDash app puts your business in front of new customers every day.
Delivery driver costs: We empower our community of Dashers, who make every delivery possible, by providing them flexible earning opportunities with competitive local pay, promotional pay, 24/7 support, third party insurance, and meaningful platform discounts. Learn more about the Dasher Community at Dasher Central.
Customer service and support for consumers, merchants, and Dashers: Customers, business owners, and Dashers all have unique needs that often need addressing immediately. When something goes wrong with an order, we have a 24/7/365 team of people ready to help solve customer issues, so they’ll continue to order from your business.
Technology platform costs: It takes a world-wide, world-class logistics, engineering, coding, marketing, and operations team to keep the DoorDash app and website, our Merchant Portal and tablet, and our Dasher app running. We hire the best and expect the best from our team.
Credit card processing: With the exception of Storefront (where you only pay for credit card processing with no additional commissions, monthly fees or per-order fees), all DoorDash offerings include credit card processing, so you have less to worry about when it comes to overhead expenses.
There is not a standard delivery radius for merchants on DoorDash. The delivery radius is set by an algorithm based on how many Dashers are in your area and consumer demand. Plus and Premium members do get access to a larger delivery area than Basic, potentially reaching more customers. Self-Delivery merchants with their own delivery teams can set their own delivery area.

Higher ticket sizes: DashPass members typically have higher ticket sizes.
Access to the fastest growing user base: DashPass subscribers are growing at 2x the rate of our overall user base.
