Problem with Tips
I significantly decreased my use of this app for food delivery. In my area, Postmates is probably DoorDash’s biggest competition. DoorDash has a lot more restaurant choices. Unlike Postmates, DoorDash only gives the tipping options at the time of purchase. If there’s a way to change it, I would love to learn how it’s done. How do you know how much of a tip the driver should get or if they deserve one at all. I have had drivers ignore instructions not to go to the door by my garage (where I cannot see or hear them), cold food, food arriving too late... . I’ve had way too many orders with missing items. Why should I commit to tipping up front for this?
DoorDash needs to put pressure on drivers to check orders before leaving the restaurant! Maybe start deducting the cost of missed items from the driver’s guaranteeed fee? I wish they could also deduct for cold food. If the food arrives really cold(or melted for cold stuff) there’s only a few explanations. The driver arrived at the restaurant too late or accepted too many orders and items got cold during multiple stops. If DoorDash has too many incidents, drop that driver. Maybe let customers request drivers who have good star ratings, or ones that they liked from prior orders-to encourage good service. Lyft and Uber do it, why not food delivery companies?
Incorrect Order Functionality Should Be ADDED
I placed an order through DoorDash and it turns out another person placed an order with the same name as me. It has been two hours trying to correct the issue at hand. I decided to just go and pick up our correct order myself. The restaurant that we ordered from has been very accommodating and helpful. However, the DoorDasher themselves need to be more aware of which orders they are picking up and dropping off. Which leads to my next point, DoorDash should have an option through the App after the order has been dropped off “Did you receive your order?” Followed by this question “Did you receive the correct order?” With a YES or NO option. If “No” was selected, there should be an option to put in the Order Number you’ve either received OR what was incorrect with your order along with inputting your order number, from there it should automatically go back to the restaurant with another DoorDasher in route to pick up the correct order and drop off.
DoorDash has been great to use, I use it very often, but unfortunately this isn’t the first time that this has happened and revived the incorrect order or something wrong about the order.
From a customer standpoint I think adding in the Functionality mentioned above would be a great improvement to the App as well as provide better customer service as opposed to creating a hassle trying to get your order.
Good App. Good Service. Good Money Grab.
I find that the app itself is easy enough to use for any of my food orders. However the pricing is a bit high just to have some food delivered. I’m talking about the delivery, and service fees. They offer free delivery on certain orders, from certain restaurants, except the service fee will then be higher. It’s just quite a leap in price from picking something up, to having it delivered through Door-Dash. I get that it’s meant to be convenient. However, something stops being convenient when it becomes quite a bit more expensive. Then they say “we’ll just sign up for our Door Pass” and you’ll get free deliveries, except again, those services fees are tricky. Not to mention, you’re now paying $9.99 a month for something you only use like once or twice a month. It just doesn’t make much sense unless your ordering food delivered several times a week, but even then with the service charges and tips added, you might as well drive the 5 minutes (2miles) and pick it up yourself. These Apps in a way take advantage of elderly people, and sick people who can’t leave their homes due to isolation, quarantine, or the fear of getting sick and who have no family or friends to help them. They have no choice but to spend the extra money to use these apps so they can eat. Which is not great in a time where a majority of people are financially struggling. End review rant.
Would have been 5 stars but......
So I love this app has great prices, promos, and a wider variety of restaurants than other delivery apps BUT TODAY WAS LIKE PULLING TEETH TRYING TO PLACE MY ORDER. I’ve used this app for more than a month had small problems here or there but nothing major until I was blocked from submitting orders for no reason at all I called my bank to make sure the card info was valid and they said the reason for the decline was a mismatch billing address so I called DoorDash to verify all the information and the lady starts to tell me that I haven’t used it in a while so that was why but I explained that I used it yesterday and she says well there is no block on our end it’s your banks fault so more or less I was politely told “Oh well” I played around with the app and discovered that I could use my Apple Pay to submit the order so I did but what makes no sense is that the same card on my Apple Pay is the same card I was attempting to use in the first place but I’ve never had to use Apple Pay in the past so the whole situation was just annoying and I’m starving in the process so I’m just disappointed that there is no rhyme or reason to what happened to me. She said she would escalate the case but there is no est. resolution time......go figure
Wow! Horrible auto-response ...
I have been using Door Dash from day one. I preferred Door Dash to Uber Eats, but there are constant issues of items missing, drivers leaving my order at other doors, drivers taking hours to deliver and if you order drinks forget about it. I continued to patronize Door Dash regardless of the constant mishaps because at least their customer service reps are extremely polite and helpful. However, I recently ordered a rather large order ($70 as usual) band it was frustrating to receive the order again with no drinks. But when I went to report the missing item I received a most disappointing auto response that stated “Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide compensation on this order due to your account history.” So I guess if you continue to use Door Dash services and pay them for it although they continue to forget your items you paid for eventually you will reach a moment when Door Dash will be okay with taking your money and not delivering your food... just taking your money. The rep Vincent quickly apologized and offered a refund for the missing drink, however the auto response is apparently the type of business Door Dash intends to conduct which is to take your money and provide shady service then refuse to right their mistakes unless you take time out of your day to argue with them about it. No thanks. I’ll be taking my business elsewhere.

I love the variety of options on this app, but there are so many frustrating things about the app itself. I’m not going to talk about the over priced tips, or how you have to tip before you even receive your order which can’t change if you’re dasher is great or crappy. There isn’t even a comment section to give feedback on the dashers because I know a few have eaten some of my food while delivering it to me. The “your favorites” section of the app is crap because it has restaurants on there that I had once and hated. Not only is there no option to actually add a your favorite, there’s no way to remove them from the section. Every time I go to “your favorites” that place is always the first in line which is also very irritating. If a restaurant is closed on a day you look for it, it shows up as “no result” even though I can go through my previous orders and find it that way. I will say I am appreciative of how responsive the support team is if the restaurant messes up, or the driver hands off the my food to someone else. They are quick with a refund, but they don’t refund your tip even if the driver doesn’t do what he is being paid to do. I would be a much happier customer if the issues surround the “your favorites” section was fixed and the drivers could be held accountable for their mistakes.
Recent update made it impossible to order anything from home anymore
By Tristan the angry man
I've been using door dash with dash pass for a few months, ordering for and with my girlfriend and family, occasionally with them paying. I support the drivers a lot as well, and I would order every day, giving generous tips and additional cash if I had it. But they just added another two factor authorization that doesn't work properly at all, and it ended in me wasting money on dash pass, on my account and my mom's account for literally no reason, and I guarantee it's causing a lot of dashers to lose money. So I called technical support and they sent me a troubleshooting list to start off with, and I followed it step by step, removing the cards, authorizing them one at a time, everything they said to do. Needless to say, their first branch of customer service was nothing short of a heaving pile of garbage. They said to wait snd try again later, so then comes the next day. I tried ordering food, with two cards with the same general info, and SHABAM, nothing happens. Well, not nothing, it repeatedly asks me to "rescan your card" even though it's been done and verified like 12 times and the useless payment from the dash pass on both accounts went through, but not the actual orders? The cards are obviously accepted and they work, so I called them again. They sent me to a slightly higher up in the branch, and she said, she can't do anything about it. So cool, you guy's lost literally 6 customers in one go 👍🏻
Assignment of Dashers
I’m not sure how this works, but I’ve faced this issue innumerable times. So my user journey is - I check out the food/restaurant on doordash -> order food from the resto -> order is placed -> money deducted (all good till here) -> I see an ETA -> And now a dasher is assigned (which I see) -> So the dasher makes it a point to not pay heed to the ETA and bring food anytime after that. I am a human and I crave food when hungry. And that is why app like Doordash exist because of the craving and the ease to answer my craving. And when that is not satisfied, trouble begins and I write a review. So my problem is 1.) How come dashers change mid-way : is it like they bring food and in mid-way ‘Tony (namesake, the dasher who was assigned)’ met ‘Frank(new dasher)’ and they exchanged my food mid way and now Frank comes. 2.) Many times I receive my food cold. Why? If the taxes are not sufficient increase them but bring my food ‘hot’. Please. 3.) The dashers are always assigned to multiple pick-ups and no wonder food turns up cold - kindly make an algorithm so that a dasher pertains to not more than ‘3’ orders else the customer has to eat stone-cold food. 4.) Tips - I earlier used to give them, but once I started receiving stone cold food I stopped and I am afraid what else can I do. I want convenience and thanks to you I am getting that but not at the cost of delayed and cold food. Apologies but I should have voiced this out earlier.
Great concept, horrible execution
Doordash support is horrible!!! If there is an issue with your food there is no way to get it fixed, so if you have no transportation or any other food available your out of luck. There is no way to provide feedback on restaurants or drivers to hold them accountable. For example, I had an order canceled 30 min after I placed it even though it said it would be arriving within 12-18 minutes, I had gotten home late from work so ordered that way so I could take care of things at the house, eat and go to bed, instead I’m up an hour and a half later due to no notification. I should be able to put a review on that restaurant so that others are aware of their unreliability. Another restaurant never reads special instructions, so first off, I get food I won’t eat and will only get a partial refund, um, no, I should get a full refund for the cost of the food at least. I should also be able to put a review on that restaurant so customers know they have to call the restaurant if they have special instructions and want them followed. Not to mention the driver that drove up in my YARD instead of my driveway! I mean, come on!!! The only thing you can put is driver is unprofessional ... seriously? It’s absolutely ridiculous and completely frustrating, need to be able to leave restaurant reviews and doordash needs to have some accountability for poor performance for the restaurants and drivers.
App Failed & the Worst Customer Support Ever!
I used the app and was able to order food when traveling. The second time when ordering at work it did not process so I tried to submit again and it told me my account was deactivated. I reached out to support to find out what happened as my credit card is in good standing. Support sent me an email saying they would look into it. A week later I followed up to see if there was any resolution which they replied back with a link to their legal terms page and said I had violated their terms. THAT WAS IT. That was their customer service response to their app failing during normal use.
I even checked with my credit card company which told me they had not denied any transactions from DoorDash and my card was still active and valid. I also tried to place an order using a different email address to see if I could still order and it came back as account deactivated most likely since I used the same credit card. So that was my experience with the worst customer service and app fail. Their app failed and their response was THAT I VIOLATED their terms during normal use of placing a lunch order. I find it so funny. They could’ve replied with a different response to discover what error may be happening with their service and chose to place the blame on me. Good luck with anyone choosing to use this company. I wish DoorDash the best and hope they will do better in the future with their service and how they decide to treat their customers.
