Watch this short video to learn exactly how Self-Delivery works for businesses and customers on DoorDash.
Fulfill your own deliveries
You control the delivery experience, set your own delivery area, and choose the delivery fee that customers pay.
Reach new customers at a lower cost
Self-Delivery partners enjoy marketing and sales benefits powered by the DoorDash platform, plus a lower commission rate than Marketplace orders.
Tap into the Dasher network
With Self-Delivery’s flexible fulfillment option, Dashers are still available to you when you need them — such as when an order is placed after your team’s delivery hours or outside of your delivery area.
