DoorDash - Dasher Positive Reviews
Dasher effectThat I’ve done over 3500 deliveries and I had surgery a few months back to where this is all I could do an egg and I’m gonna try to stay pretty loyal to you guys and last month something happened to the app or you guys try to do that I don’t know but it messed me up. I might be losing my home because of it but he’s getting better again I mean I think I’m going to sparks delivery because of that I can I can’t depend on tips like that to pay my gas and my bill Hayden, Doordash, and his grade as long as everybody cooperates we could’ve made it even a greater thing because I’m a year you’re always sending me emails asking if you resolve my issue because I have a lot of issues with it. Made this company. Perfect but many people there didn’t like me and yeah and a lot of them say they can’t help me with my not getting orders in but I know they can because people do help me. I mean I do appreciate Doordash you help me through a lot but there that last month it took me till the 23rd to be able to pay my rent. I was baking addiction and I don’t have it this month. It took too long to get back, no you know I have you like – but I got to go somewhere else because I can’t. I can’t depend on my loyalty to get me through and I know I’ve had some days where I went home early but I’ve only had like five days off since November 3 of 2022 make it better and I’ll stick around but I can’t go down to 1375 an hour and hope for tips I just bottom line I can’t do it..Version: 2.274.1
Improved driver issue response.. map no goI do not like new map... it does not connect to my blue tooth and even turned off, I can’t get sound unless I turn the car all the way off... it was great before... however, it might mostly be from the iOS update. But I could deal with that if the map automatically centered so I could glance at the screen to see where I’m at...and it’s more difficult to locate customers houses and probably fifty percent of the houses and apts, you cannot see the numbers. I had to manually put in addresses into my google maps... it’s still easier to follow without sound. Having to re center the dasher map constantly is like an accident waiting to happen. Maybe there is an advantage to that that I don’t see yet?
Also, customers have reported that they’ve tried to edit their info and messages to us, but it doesn’t work ... their changes don’t update.
It would be super helpful if we had name of shopping center, office, apt complex, neighborhood where those stand out. And if someone lives in a house with no or difficult to see house numbers... some other visual indication might be helpful... like ‘white house w shutters and two lights at door’ or something. Half the houses are easy and straightforward... but some are not clear on map and when I can’t see addresses, I can’t confirm... I’ve had several close calls of dropping at wrong location. These details could help circumvent problems..Version: 2.112.0
SaddenedOn a few different occasions there has been problems with the app or shall I say glitches in the door dash system. It may say go to McDonald’s pop up right away is go to Burger King pop up right away go to Panera Papa go away etc. etc. Sometimes it does not give you time to accept or decline lately there have been quite a few glitches in the system go to Friendly’s go to Chili’s go to Panera bread go to Friendly’s go to Chili’s. I don’t understand what is happening. If it’s something that means are working out from glitches. I would like to know it is very confusing waste a lot of time gas running back-and-forth quickly trying to get it before someone else can snatch it up. Such as today that had happened two days ago it has happened there were no orders for quite some time. Some people are saying they were having trouble with their app. We logged out we logged in no change. Also are the customers aware that the base pay or peak pay is not a tip from them. I get many orders small and large with no tip and I think they believe that that is included in the shipping and handling fee is there anyway we can note that to the customers stating this is not a customer tip that we are there for them with a smile and their food and they do not give a tip specially when you have to go across the river to pick some thing up and bring it back across the river again which takes up a lot of time.Version: 2.170.0
I think more is to be doneWhile this is a great way of making some extra cash, many times I’ve been left frustrated. For instance I’ve been to Taco Bell on two different occasions just to realized that they’re closed and you have to use the driveway. By the time you get to the driveway mic, they’re not accepting DoorDash orders. I spent 37mins in a Taco Bell driveway just to be told this and it’s happened twice. I was once sent to a restaurant that wasn’t even open and for all my time spent I was compensated with $0. NOTHING.
I don’t even want to talk about the times they’ve made me do orders way out of my delivery zone. It’s one thing to pick up orders in your zone and deliver out of your zone, but to give me orders out of my zone is not cool. I was dealt a blow when on one occasion I did a delivery out of my zone and since it was going to be my last delivery because I was scheduled to stop in a few minutes, they added my order to pickup another order close to the delivery point of my first order. Remember I was already out of my pickup zone. The second order had a delivery address about 17mins when it would’ve been way above my schedule time. When I finally delivered it, it was a 50mins drive back home. I used to care about my acceptance rates, but not anymore because they don’t care about your contract
I can go on and on, but I’ll end here for now.Version: 2.195.0
Change “dash now” requirementsI think the requirements for dash now should be set to a certain acceptance rate/rating to earn dash now and be able to automatically give you the ability it would make such a difference than having to wait a month just to see if you can get it and only having it for a month
Also can you guys add like a certain amount of time we get offered a dash after we decline one or just not offer it again it really damages the acceptance rate by offering 2-4 times before I just pause or end my dash because I really don’t see any point in doing a delivery that is 10-12 miles (doubled if I don’t use the toll road) from the store only to get $8.75 dollars that’s including tip with the dash only being actually around $3 I dash in an area to deliver in that area not move one to two areas away for me to waste 20-30 minutes driving back to the area I originally was dashing at
I’m starting to lose interest because I don’t feel like i have been getting the best from the app don’t get me wrong I love dashing I find it fun most days and you can really earn a good amount past 3-4 months I’ve made 2k per month off it but there are some flaws and it is improving by time although improvements need to keep on coming
Another thing toll roads are also the problem they shouldn’t be added as a default way to get around (I don’t know how to use them/knocks dollars off the delivery earnings having to spend more money on toll).Version: 2.274.0
Finally better paying runsI have been doing door dash on and off now for over a year. I am now starting to do it in the evening again. Finally on the orders that are going far are paying enough money to take. You have to b able to make 1.00 per mile to make money with the cost of gas right now. And the heat I live in Fort Worth it has been over 110 every day I try to stay with in a 10 mile range. But when you send me an order that pays 2.59 and goes 20 miles out I am going to turn that down. It ia not worth taking. But I have to respect you. Last year in the winter when the doordash driver got killed here you shut the app down . You are the only company besides Lyft to do that it showed you cared about your employees and not putting them in harms way but we need to make more money on these runs for sure. The cost of living is why high gas is almost 3.60 a gallon here. Food is costly as well. I appreciate you and am making decent money for my side job. But I’d I had to do this full time I probably would b like the last person and losing everything no one should ever b put in that position and I Also noticed that I’d I get into another zone I get orders there as well which is great because it used to b I had to drive back to the zone. It would b nice to see bonuses offer in my area I see them all over Dallas Fort Worth but never in north Fort Worth. Just show you appreciate us. But I am enjoying myself and I like the updates that have been done.Version: 2.284.0
Fun but app could be a bit better for dashersI like the extra $ and it’s a decent gig but I feel that door dash shouldn’t allow the customer to do a no tip. I get them quite often from the same customers and I’m always on time or earlier. Make sure they have extra sauces. Napkins. Etc and I’m always polite and still get nothing from it. Dashers drive their own personal cars to make sure the customer gets their food and we use our own gas to make it happen. 3$ a trip isn’t worth delivering to people ordering 40-60$ of food and we have to go the extra mile for nothing basically. I feel that door dash can implement something on if you order either a lot of food and or a high price amount then the customer is required to tip. Also regarding if a store is indefinitely closed. They should make it easier to know what button to click to say you can’t do the order and not be docked acceptance because it not being your fault. If you click stores closed it should prompt you to say is it closed or closed indefinitely and then take you to the proper area if it’s indefinitely. Other than that. I’ll continue to do this as a side gig because it’s not hard and easy $.
Also I think door dash should do a rewards program on for every order you do you get points to get door dash merchandise to help with deliveries either it be better bags. Drink holders. Shirts. Etc. Would boost people to push for helpful items and or personal merchandise..Version: 2.50.0
DoorDasher hereI am a Paralegal and I started dashing pastime nearly 2 years ago and I’ve recently decided to take it to the next level and become a full time dasher and I absolutely love this job. Meeting people and driving around making everyone gets the joy of food is very rewarding. I also appreciate the that dasher help assists us dashers with and I really like the bonuses. I couldn’t be happier anywhere else. Not even the law office I previously worked at. DoorDashing is amazing.
This is my second review, and I would like to say that I very much enjoy door dashing. I was diagnosed with MS recently, and I was unable to work my job as a Paralegal and for department of children and families when I was diagnosed, I was unable to work full-time at my professional job so I decided to start DoorDashing and this is the way that I am able to survive financially to be able to buy groceries, pay my bills, and pay for my medication and copays. DoorDash has saved my life financially, and I am forever grateful and any time I’ve ever needed dasher support. I have been treated with kindness, and I think this is what I will do for the rest of my days working I appreciate DoorDash. I am very grateful. Thank you all so much. DoorDashing is a blessing I’m very grateful for. I would love to someday become a remote work from home DoorDash support specialist..Version: 2.264.0
App updateThe current app update is not favorable to dashers that drive at night. Talking about drivers safety, an example is i am dasher that worked from 6:00 PM to about 12:30 AM, that being able to contact the customer in time of delivery is a risk that I consider. I often get deliveries to places either it’s pitch dark, no house number or just in the middle of no where. Not being able to contact the customer poses a more risk when delivering at night, just parked in the middle of nowhere, waiting after I texted the customer , or I contacted customer service and was told for three minutes is just a waste of time and risky. I had an experience before that I pulled into someone’s drive way knowing that the guides me to the right house , all I heard was someone engaging a shot gun, I reverse so fast that I was so worried of getting shot at. From that time I have learned to call the customer and make sure that I have permission to enter his drive way and to ensure that I am on the right house , sometime I deliver to ranch houses in Alpine, CA that have a long driveway before you get closer to the house . I am feel more confident delivering and being able to talk to the person receiving his or her order. The current app update not being able to talk to customer especially delivering at night past 10:00 PM poses risk to the customer, or dropping off an order to the wrong house just like what happened tonight..Version: 2.281.1
Well organized but could use improvement!The app is well organized and allows dashers to have more freedom and flexibility. The UI is slightly outdated and the app crashes randomly. Recently, the app will crash when I end dashes. It also has navigation struggles and trouble loading the navigation. It lags and stutters.
But my main reason for writing this review has nothing to do with stability. It’s more about safety. When the app gives you an offer to pick up an order, the map is often misleading. I will think I’m going to a safe area then suddenly I’ll find out it’s in an extremely unsafe town or area. It would be really helpful if the offers could detail the towns that the restaurants AND the homes are in, even if you have to click for more details. As a female dasher, this a major concern. I try to avoid areas that could pose a problem, but sometimes I’m not 100% sure where I’m going. On top of that, if dashers could blacklist certain towns from their region, that could be helpful. I hope this suggestion is taken into account because it would absolutely be a game changer for me because declining orders affects my acceptance percentage.
Overall, the app brings customers and dashers together fairly well, keeps communication open, and allows dashers to make some cash. However, the app is glitchy and needs stability improvements. It also could be more helpful if it gave dashers more information about the deliveries BEFORE they accept..Version: 2.250.1
Couple fixes1. When u have a dash scheduled, u should be able to reschedule it to any time. I guess it doesn’t allow if a dash is not needed at that time. But that’s not right, I still wanna dash in that time frame, but maybe need and extra 30 minutes before etc. if u have it scheduled from 10 am to 10 pm for example, I should be able to change it to 11 am to 10 pm, rather than having to delete it altogether and now my only option is 4-6 pm for example. Needs to be fixed
2. There’s too many times lately where dashers aren’t needed. Idrg the idea of not needing dashers anyway. That’s the name of the game, if u don’t get an order u don’t get an order that’s the risk of dashing, but to not allow me to dash if I wanna dash because u don’t feels it’s needed, is stupid, and then literally in 2 seconds an opening might appear, doesn’t make sense. Or if u have a certain amount of dashes you should qualify for “dash whenever”. The acceptance rate is a horrible way to decide that. Would u accept 10 orders in a row for $3 for 7 miles? Yea me neither, so because I’m smart I get penalized on the acceptance rate and now I’m not a top dasher?
3. No order should be blow $5, idc how short it is. There’s no excuse. It’s ridiculous, cuz yeah maybe it’s 1 miles drive, but did u factor if there’s a delay at the resteraunt? Delay with the customer? App problems? Now I’ve literally almost just made $3 for an hour or 45 minutes? Yea I’m exposing lol
4. That’s it for now.Version: 2.260.0
SuggestionIf “we” the dashers could somehow make a personal profile for the people in our community and are available times even if they vary day to day (like our personal calendar for our individual open windows of opportunity to be of assistant to our community) and for customers to have the opportunity to choose the dasher available at the time they would like, I think it would be a greater opportunity for both the dasher and the customer.
Some customers order takeout on a regular basis, some customers don’t have the transportation to go grocery shopping on the regular, or run errands themselves. So I think it would be more fulfilling to have aParticular person to be able to run errands for them. All in all it would help EVERYONE in our community to work together efficiently. Bringing the community together a little better! And single moms or families that need an income but can’t afford to pay for childcare well they could build their own personal profileBeing open to their community for services as well being able to afford their bills while working for their community. And for the dashers that would like to make it a full-time job would get the most use out of it,Profile they can explain what they’re single mom and then might have a two year old runaround with them but they’re willing and able to do the errands for them, or what not..Version: 2.253.0
Fair but not worth itListen, I never write reviews. But I figured someone deserved to know. If gas was like two dollars cheaper, this would be a great little side hustle. But DoorDash pays you the absolute bare minimum they possibly can. You have to rely solely on people‘s tips and not a lot of people like to tip. And it shouldn’t be a requirement for people to tip at all(should only be common courtesy). But the only reason people who DoorDash get upset at people for not tipping is because that’s literally their main income. And it really influences your order because if you don’t tip, they usually get about three dollars to four dollars at best. And a lot of people don’t like to accept those orders. Sometimes people take advantage of your lopaying order and steal your food or something worse. All in all, it’s not the door Dasher or orderers fault, it’s just DoorDash being greedy. When you DoorDash, you really are just earning what you spent in gas. You have to do over at least eight orders in order to make even a couple bucks on the side. If you have a high-paying job and do this on the side, go for it. But you can’t do this by itself. you would think that when you accept an order from a hotspot and it takes you to a really far distance, that they would compensate you for that. But they really only tack on an extra dollar or two. Not only does this seem like a waste of gas, but a waste in time. just consider this before you sign up..Version: 2.239.0
THIS APP NEEDS REVIVING!!!Used to enjoy driving as a dasher till everything started becoming customer based. Customers get free deliveries, coupons off orders and deliveries, don’t have to tip…the list goes on. I’ve called and have wrote many reviews expressing my feelings as a degraded driver and not much has seemed to change. Drivers are still treated as full time employees the way we’re held accountable for our acceptance rate and completion rating all while being given orders for $2 and change to $3 and change going many miles. Orders crossing town lines or even state lines sometimes for only a mere base pay and no tip. This is a service based app where real people are making real time deliveries using their gas and vehicles for customers who are free delivery and no tip, how is that fair?!! I’m not saying a giant gratuity should be added to every order, but an automatic one based off order size(what customer paid) would be VERY VERY appropriate, would make drivers feel rewarded and worth it again! The cash back on the dasher card is nice don’t get me wrong and the (+)pay orders is a nice new incentive, but maintaining an above 50% acceptance rate is very hard when there is no promos going and orders pour in for minimum base pay over and over. I’d hate to stop using the dasher app, but it’s either gonna come to that or I’m gonna be deactivated for poor acceptance rate and that isn’t right either.
Sincerely with deep concerns,
A fed up dasher.Version: 2.253.0
My Experiences as a Doordash DriverWhile dashing I hate it when I see “you missed an opportunity”. I tell myself, how could I have missed when it’s not even offered to me. Sometimes these “you missed an opportunity” shows in succession, like three in a row in a matter of seconds. Does Doordash intentionally do that? I am an optimistic person so when I see “you missed an opportunity” I just smile and tell myself “here we go again, there goes my acceptance rate, it’s going to go down now. I work very hard and I’m dedicated to my job so I always try my best to satisfy my employer and my customers all the time. I have been dashing for three months now, I haven’t declined an offer yet, I always accept whatever I’m offered. Sometimes though, there are offers that I had to pick up from about 11 miles away then deliver it way to the end of town, about another 15 miles. I just tell myself, it’s a normal part of the job so I don’t complain at all. I must commend the “Doordash Support Team”, they’re always there for me. Every time I get into a situation where I needed their assistance, they’re there and always are willing to help. One time though, I had to wait almost 20 minutes before someone offered to help me. The majority of the time, there’s someone within three minutes..Version: 2.96.0
Not sure how to title this....nor rate at this timeVery frustrated & disappointed to wake up this morning & find my account deactivated stating I have committed referral fraud in which have absolutely no clue in how I could have possibly done this. I have only sent out a referral email & one on Facebook each once to my personal email contacts & FB personal friends/acquaintances thru DoorDash link provided in this specific app... how does that go against the rules? I have put in my appeal along with then sent an email back once receiving an email stating that they received my appeal & that I could respond to that specific email & once I did that I got a “delivery failure”stating I may not be in that group allowed to post in or the group was removed...
I do not feel I have done anything against any rules/wrong whatsoever & have only done 2 days worth of deliveries & just got a bit more comfortable & was getting more excited to the opportunity to make the extra much need funds.
I’m just a simple single mother trying to make ends meet not anything by no means excessive or wrong but was looking forward to for example the $20 bonus challenge given only needed 4 more deliveries to achieve it & had 2 days to achieve & if I can’t get reactivated in time I am going to lose out over something I don’t feel was my fault. Not to mention feel embarrassed for it being considered fraud....that’s an awful strong accusation....Version: 2.112.0
Needs major improvementsLet me start off by saying that DoorDash pays way better than uber! That’s the main reason for my 3 star.
HOWEVER! It needs to improve the way it pays out its drivers. Uber only charges .50 cents for instant payout while doordash charges $1.99 and I’ve added my card several times and I still don’t have an option for instant pay. They really need to work on fixing this.
Another thing is I don’t know if it’s a slow month or not but they are hardly sending any orders, I’m a 5 star top performer and I’m out driving and receive little to no orders, for that reason I have been doing uber because I cannot afford to be out driving and wasting my gas. Please note that I always go during dinner so no it’s not because I’m going during non-busy hours!!
Almost all fast-food locations should be removed from doordash, we don’t have time to wait over 15 minutes in the drive-thru, we lose money when we end up having to wait for the order, I wish doordash would understand this. The fast food locations I have the most issues with are POPEYES #1, BURGER KING, WENDYS, AND MCDONALDS. PLEASE REMOVE THEM OR DEMAND THEM TO OPEN THEIR DINING ROOM FOR PICK-UPS OR CHARGE CUSTOMERS AN EXTRA FEE FOR PICKING UP FROM FAST-FOOD CHAINS.
And lastly, tip should be a requirement, there’s no way I’m going to drive over 5 miles for $2-$5 order, that is just a no! The minimum tip should be AT LEAST $3 and even then I will consider accepting the order..Version: 2.209.0
First time I got cheatedI was thinking DoorDash was a honest group. My orders were pretty fair as a lot goes into our car and time as dashers. I know they use to take the tip money and play them into the drivers payments. For the first time I noticed how they are now doing that with the “peak or “promo pay” I was noticing 7$ and 5$ orders I said to myself how can there be a 2$ promo and the whole order only be 5$ that would mean the base pay is 3$ and I know I never have and never will accept a 3 $ order. Anyway I’m until now I thought we were finally getting paid for work but a 3$ order in California lol gas alone to do the trip cost 4 so why would anyone lose money for you guys? What a shame it is now I never even had to look at my pay bc u guys. We’re on it and fair and paid what we should get but I think with a 2$ promo running I had 3 orders all that were 3$ base comon greedy to say the least. All I can ask is plz try to be honest don’t put a promo if ur not doing promo prices. Understand we are in cali every order should be at leader 10$ but min is 7 or not worth it we would be loosing money. But certainly don’t mislead and con on the promos I don’t know why y’all just started the conning on them as u we’re keeping it legit. Oh well I’m sure I will be reading about this one soon how doordash uses fake promos to intisce drivers. And if u could actually give me some extra pay for the lies aand inconvience.Version: 2.208.0
LETS SEE….I enjoy doing dashes whenever I have time. It’s fun checking out the restaurants that people order from, and looking at the menu. I make a decent amount off dash and I like doing it. Recently reached rankings of being one of the top dashers so I get higher paying deliveries which is nice! But…. The worst deliveries are the ones on base. I don’t have a pass and it takes a while to get a temporary one. That by the time I deliver the food it’s no longer fresh. PLEASE show or have some kind of indication that it’s a bass access delivery! People who order sometimes put it in the notes but we can’t see it till after picking up the order! I stoped for a while because it does put a lot on the car. Then I started getting promotion emails. First for $75 then for $200. Completed the 25 deliveries for $200. Told to wait 5 business days to see it on my account. Ok… waited 5 days to contact them again, just to be told to wait another 5 days!? Don’t send out promotional emails like this if you don’t want to pay up when it’s completed! False advertisement! Glad I took screen shots of everything. Also gas and car maintenance ain’t cheap! ***will edit this rating later if I receive the promotion/ bonus.***
Almost a month of waiting… had to go through a lot of hassles finally got threw to management and got my pay out! Thank you!!.Version: 2.240.0
It’s ok.App is ok. I have issues with the maps. Usually faces in the wrong direction when I start. That’s not too big of an issue. What is an issue is getting an order that’s a 20 minute drive out of your zone and having to drive that 20 min back and not getting anything until you return to your zone. If a restaurant can add a gratuity when a party is a certain size, DD can do the same with a certain distance. When you’re in the middle of traffic, you really can’t see how far it really is and what kind of tip they leave until after you accept and stop at the location. Sometimes even going into another county. And forget about reaching support if you’re a dasher. I called 5 times and the automated thing just kept taking me in circles until it hangs up on you. Chatting, I was able to get someone fast through customer support. Dasher support? Nope. No one answered after waiting 30 minutes. Other than that, it’s been ok. Just don’t know why my deposit for the week was shorted from my actual amount. That’s the reason why I called the support line.
Another issue I came across is wait times on food being ready. I keep having to unassign orders because they won’t be ready for 15-20 minutes. I’m not waiting that long for $5. They need to make it so that we won’t receive orders until it’s ready for pick up. Other than that, we’re just waiting time and $6 gas.Version: 2.215.11
System needs some work. For sure.There are a lot of things I like about DoorDash. The opportunity, convenience, & ability to serve & help others who can’t get for themselves. But...From my very first order it seems I was set up for failure. Being sent to restaurants that often were as much as 10 min behind on an order being ready. More than half of those instances I was late delivering as I walked out of the restaurant or soon after. This is especially the case with double orders. Which means from the start I’ve had a low “on time” score. Not ok. Your algorithm for this stinks. Next. If a customer cancels an order after I accept it, or the restaurant cancels for some reason, it most definitely should NOT count as an incomplete on my score. Yet this is happening. Lastly. I’ve seen a lot of young dashers with friends and/or significant others in the car as company to hang out with while they dash. I’ve even had restaurant owners say something to me. I was under the impression this was frowned upon for safety reasons. But especially now..dashers should be warned against doing this since it violates the 6ft rule and puts your customers at risk. I’ve had quite a few restaurants in my area tell me this is a concern. These things above make those of us trying hard to do a good job look bad. As for the rest. The app is great. It’s an awesome opportunity. You asked for my opinion though so I’m being honest. I haven’t had a bad review on my service yet..Version: 2.52.1
Basically kicked offI have been a dasher for over 3 years. So about 3 months ago my account started giving me an error message saying I couldn’t dash because my red card is not activated. So I called into cs and was told to order a new red card. I was extended for 2 weeks to continue dashing until I received my red card. I received the card and I wasn’t able to activate the red card so I called cs and they tried to assist me in the process but were no help. They couldn’t figure out what the problem was so they extended me for another 2 weeks to figure it out. Called back still couldn’t resolve the issue. I was told to order another red card and was extended for another 2 weeks. I received the new card and I’m unable to activate this one as well. Called cs and they couldn’t figure it out. Then they tell me oh you didn’t complete the background process and send my a link to do this. I follow the directions in the email. I get an error message basically saying background more than 1 year old not available. Called cs back they extend me for 2 weeks and try to figure it out. This extending process goes on for a while every 2 weeks. Then my issue was supposedly escalated and someone would get back in touch with me but this time I can’t be extended for some reason. It’s been 2 weeks and a haven’t received any response. So basically I was just kicked off with no explanation..Version: 2.215.11
My acceptance rate goes down for unassignmentNormally this is the best app for gig workers. The Driver support is awesome.I’ve noticed quite a few dashers talking about the acceptance ratings not working correctly. I have to agree. I think it began with the new iOS update last month since it’s a recent event. On May 31, 2023 my acceptance rate was incorrectly impacted by 3 dashes from which I unassigned. I did decline one dash which correctly moved my acceptance rate from 71% to 70% at the conclusion of my Dash at 9:40 PM on May 31. This mistake prevented me from achieving top Dasher for the month of June, since it incorrectly moved my final acceptance rate from 70% to 67%. My requests to be unassigned correctly impacted my completion rate, which moved to 97%. Apparently whoever was next offered those 3 dashes, failed to accept those Dashes, which incorrectly impacted my acceptance rate. I worked very hard for my top dasher status which I’ve maintained for several months. According to the statistics on my dasher app, I finished with the 70% acceptance rate at 9:40pm at the end of my dash on May 31, but Doordash wrongly had me at 67%. Will you investigate this? Might you please correct that mistake and restore my status as top Dasher for the month of June? I also hope that can you assure me that such a mistake will not occur in the future..Version: 2.275.0
Needs Apple CarPlay compatibility!!I have used the Dasher app off and on for several years and while it does have some bugs here and there, it’s still a pretty decent way to make a couple extra bucks in between paychecks at my Day job. I would have given it a full 5 stars if the Dasher app supported Apple carplay because constantly having to switch between navigation apps can be a bit of a nuisance especially because I drive a Stick and am constantly having to juggle my phone and driving. There have been cases where my phones screen will timeout and shut off and I miss an order or 2 because I was never notified of it in the first place with the only evidence of these being my acceptance rate having dropped a certain percentage. Apple CarPlay could make the dasher app so much better in so many ways. The app likes to point out that some dashers think it’s faster to have in app navigation but I think that it is somewhat dangerous because you are having to constantly keep your phone in hand while driving. The compatibility for CarPlay is there, it’s just hard for me to understand why the App developer doesn’t utilize this. I’ve been off the app for about 4 years only in the past month to come back and I was bummed out to see after 4 years they still have not added CarPlay support. Hopefully the developer reads this and gives it some consideration..Version: 2.246.0
Review Of a Dasher KennethI enjoy dashing very much some of the people are very trying times always trying to work and Angle to steal the for the groceries from you and everything else I just had a double order one was all the way to the north end of Danville and the other was all way to the south in Danville I might pick a point was in the middle that’s really not what I would consider being on my way when I’m taking another one for $2.25 especially seeing how gas is 479 a gallon would like to see DoorDash take some of this into consideration and try to pick up T closest pick up points and delivery just wish more. Dashers would take some of these lower paying two 5350 tickets and everybody can share on the more profitable ones and everybody doesn’t get hung out to dry with all of those small ones especially when you’re top dashing and you really hate to turn down any offers at all I strive to keep my acceptance rate between 96 and 100 completion 100% also the people out here that are giving us one star coming from the black community so they can help their fellow blacks have better ratings points for a driver I thank you very much for the opportunity of working for you bye some of these very same sentiments.Version: 2.263.0
Improve DD appI’ve only been driving since June and I really do enjoy the job…..when the app is working properly. I’ve spent a lot of time ‘chatting’ with Support or speaking with them by phone. I’ve had several different app issues and most have been addressed. Today was the worst. It was absolutely crippling. After accepting the order, I drove to the restaurant and picked up the order and put it in my car…all ready to go. All of a sudden I had no way to inform DD that I had picked up the order, no information about the delivery other than the customer’s name and no way to contact her to let her know it might be a little longer than was first thought for receipt of her food. I went into the restaurant to see if they possibly had her address or phone number. No. During my time in the store, another dasher came in looking for the order for my same customer!!! DD had moved the order from me to the other dasher because they hadn’t heard from me so they assumed I wasn’t going to complete the order. Bottom line? I passed the food to the new dasher to deliver. She would receive the payment (as well she should) and I not even lost a lot of my dashing time, I LOST THE $$ FROM MY ORDER. Unacceptable. This is a fabulously successful company….they should have state-of-the-art technical equipment. Like I said, I really enjoy the job but issues like this MUST BE addressed..Version: 2.206.0
Could be betterI been dashing for a few months now and I honestly think the app could be so much better. Firstly, when two orders from the same place show up at once; we should be given the option to either accept all or accept one. I had a retail order that was more than half an hour away from my location but because I accepted the other order, I had to accept the long distance one too. Secondly, base pay is too low. $2-$3 is nothing especially considering the amount of wear and tear and gas you’ll be needing when working as a delivery driver. I believe it would be more fair to give a honest base pay plus tips of course. Third, there should be a mileage limit. Especially if I’m dashing in a certain area there is no reason I should be given the option for orders that are 10+ miles away. Of course I don’t have to accept them but it makes more sense especially if we’re choosing a select area to dash in. Lastly, for the dasher retail orders, we should be able to zoom in on the pictures or at least get clearer pictures. I’ve had a couple of times where I had to strain my eyes just so I could see the correct measurements on a product. Not to mention, these photos/ products should be up to date. If the company changed their packaging then DoorDash needs to include the picture of the correct packaging so there’s no confusion..Version: 2.174.0
Fun job just needs some tweaks to the appThe map is pretty difficult to use since you can’t hear where you should be turning. It just beeps at me when I need to turn. It’s really distracting having to look from at the phone every time I deliver.
I have also been missing out on more dashes because the directions are wrong and send me to dead ends or closed roads. I either have to enter it into my google maps if I have somewhere to pull over or just try and figure it out if I don’t. Or I will get sent to an address that is way out of my delivery area and have to go all the way back to my area before I can get another order. It usually cost me as much as I get paid for the order in gas when that happens. I’ve been dashing for a little over a week and have literally only made enough to cover the gas that I’m using while delivering. Even though I show up early to pick up and leave restaurants early with the deliveries. It’s usually the amount of time it takes to actually get to the delivery address because they can be all the way across town.
Other than that I love working for DoorDash. It just needs a few tweaks on the app to help out drivers and make it easier and faster to get to deliveries. Or adding to the pay due for the amount of time you are driving to a delivery. Here in Vegas it can take 20 minutes to go 11 miles..Version: 2.168.1
My thoughtsFirst night I made close to $20 for 3 deliveries. Not so bad. However, some people are horrible with instructions. What they tell you makes perfect sense in their head but when you get there it doesn’t make sense. Another thing is, while I was closing an order out another immediately popped up and the app automatically accepted it making the person think I was ready to take their order! Right after that happened the app closed and wouldn’t open back up after closing it, reinstalling it, and resetting my iphone nothing worked I basically waited for 40 minutes and decided to go home. Nearly 20 minutes after I got home the app decided it wants to work again..
I open the app back up and what do you know? The same order which popped up & accepted itself was just sitting there. So I cancelled and told support what happened. And by the way the order was 45 minutes away from where I live! No. Other than that if customers would.. I don’t know.. LEAVE A TIP that would nice. I always left my dashers $5-$10 tips because they go out their way to get your stuff & also if customers would put the effort in to be more accurate with instructions that would be nice too. Just my thoughts..Version: 2.213.0
Red Card IssuesIf you decide to make extra income with Door Dash please review this before hand.
One way that Door Dash will have you pay for orders is by providing you with a company business card referred to as a “Red Card”. What Door Dash does it pre-fill the card with the amount needed to pay for the order. I had an order as such and this experience was a nightmare. Not only did the card get declined multiple times. After contacting Dasher Support, which session lasted for over an hour and half and multiple attempts of re-swiping the card and verify the card info and verifying that there is cash on the card. I was unable to complete the order and this order was then reassigned to another dasher. Check this out not only did they ask if I could pay out of pocket in order to complete the order. Because I’m definitely not door dashing because I need money (sarcasm). They then told me they had to unassigned the order and in this now onwards of 1 hour 45 min. I haven’t completed one dash and didn’t get compensated for my time, gas, and energy put into this. They did not make it right by the people who make this company run.
So after reading this, please ask yourself do you want this sort of experience?.Version: 2.218.0
Can be betterDD needs a form of compensation. Had a double order that would total $13, accepted it, picked up one of the orders and then BOOM, the second one disappeared. Turns out it was canceled and I would still need to drive 7 miles for a delivery outside my zone only totaling a whopping,$7!!! Contacted doordash and the best they could do is tell me it wouldn’t affect my ratings. Obviously it won’t affect my ratings if that order just didn’t exist anymore and now I have to deliver the first order I already picked up, or else get punished for choosing not to because of how NOT WORTH it was. 14 miles for $7, in ILLINOIS, fun! DD does the bear minimum to compensate for distance, and I don’t know how but I swear they pay you less when someone decides to tip. Very misleading to the “You get to keep 100% of your tips” saying. DD: “Oh you’re total was $10 for a distance of 12miles one way? We’ll give you $2 base pay and the other $8 was their tip” people shouldn’t feel forced to tip an outragous amount on top of all the extra money they pay, just so it can guarantee their order to arrive on time or at all. Maybe people would order if they didn’t know all that. Also as a dasher, I don't know if I would order and The only time it feels like it’s worth dashing is when there is peak pay promos, which barely happen and if they do are at inconvenient hours..Version: 2.263.0
Dangerous long deliveriesI used to love to dash because of the extra money I was making and still staying close to home. But now someone can order something 15 to 20 miles away from the area that I want to stay in and if I decline it, my rating goes down but if I take it then I’m in an unknown area taking deliveries where I don’t feel safe for an unfair amount of money. Now if I want to get back to my area, I have to either pause within the app or end my dash to return to a better known/safer area. There’s no reason that I should be picking up deliveries 15-20 miles away from the drop off then being told I’m “outside the delivery area,” especially since I want to stay in the area that I’m comfortable with and not go to a completely different city. How is that also fair to the people that ordered food when their food gets delivered cold because of the far deliver distance? My first and last delivery today I got called profanities and then was told “I would’ve given you cash if you weren’t so late.” My response to the DoorDash team is to quit allowing restaurants to deliver WAY outside a delivery area then expecting drivers to waste gas and time to return to the area in which you sent them out to..Version: 2.154.0
App Ratings/Order PayDoor Dash app lowers your acceptance rate considerably if you refuse a couple of orders in a row. The app doesn’t show you if a customer is adding a tip, so sometimes it’s just the base pay, or base pay plus peak pay, no matter the distance. I want to deliver during lunch hours but won’t because it’s not worth the expenditure of fuel for $4 to travel 3-5 miles/$5.50 for 6-12 miles. When sending two orders, it affects our delivery time window, especially if the restaurant takes longer to process the second order, or the customer doesn’t include gate codes, or special instructions that there are 2 entrances to their residence location, which brings down our “on time” delivery rating. If I’m headed in one direction I am sent an order that is in the opposite direction, I can’t switch lanes that fast, sometimes traffic is heavy it’s difficult to find where to do a legal U-Turn. And the biggest issue is I get sent orders that take me out of my scheduled delivery area, and am notified that I’m out of my delivery zone, so I have to travel back if I want to receive more orders, so for a longer distance the app doesn’t account for round trip travel which is not cost effective. I’m looking to sign up with other similar food delivery apps to see which one works best for me, but of course I will continue to do Door Dash..Version: 2.166.2
Faulty systems and stressI’ve been door dashing for a while now and I find that your system has many faults I have to restart my cell phone almost every day during a trip during a run a dash so that it’ll work effectively. The requirements that you give us for time causes me to speed and causes me stress costing me money because I have to pay for more gas cause I’m driving faster. This is also an unsafe behavior I don’t know where are you came up with this idea of giving essay in a limited amount of time to deliver in order. Maybe some delivery boys are not very diligent but I am a diligent driver. When I deliver I deliver. Another problem Hass to do with stacking orders on me and then not adjusting the time so that I can meet as of a reasonable on time rate for example yesterday you gave me to order stacked on each other and the delivery time for each one was after I had already picked up my orders though how can I deliver on time when I didn’t even pick up the order on time I feel the system is very unfair and it can get any causes more stress because i’m a diligent driver. When I drive for DoorDash I do my best and yesterday it was pouring down rain I got soaking wet to the bone but I still delivered my orders you know a little gratitude sometimes goes a long ways having your system working efficiently would be nice thank you.Version: 2.253.0
Dasher Michelle WalkerI love doing deliveries! Meeting new people and building a network with the merchants. I have established a few regulars which makes this that much more enjoyable. My only thing is that there seems to be too many drivers out at the same time on certain nights and even during the days lately. Makes it hard to commit full time especially in a small town. I like to stay busy and for the last two weeks I am not busy at all. I can schedule a seven or eight hour shift and actually only work maybe 3 hours. Too much down time. I love being part of a platform where I decide what works for me and change it up by doing deliveries when I go to my moms in Colorado. Being able to work in different cities around the United States is awesome ! There aren’t too many platforms which allow this, I think it is great though because a dasher can keep their ratings high and the app greasy and not lose status as a top dasher if they so choose or they can take vacay! So many great options driving for Doordash but working for me by me! I’m going to give full time devotion here in a couple weeks I’m praying to be able to quit the working for someone else and be happy doing what I am loving more everyday! Best to you all out there doing the deal!!!.Version: 2.146.0
Simple, Convenient, and Honest.I work for three different on demand companies, or apps, and DoorDash was always my favorite one to work with. I absolutely love that there is now a Debit card for dashers to be paid, DAILY, I am impatiently waiting to receive mine! The only things that I would suggest are being able to know more about the mileage you’ll be driving when accepting an order, and the road conditions (if paved or stone, pot holes, hilly, etc.) another is customers are still able to text you after you have marked a delivery completed, I’m not very comfortable with that, although DoorDash hides your number, it is still aggravating when you are trying to delivery your next order and you have the previous customer texting or calling your phone. I also wish Dashers had discounts for the apparel and car accessories on the Stores website. I think it would be a pretty cool idea to have local Dashers in the different areas to get together for meetings, that are not mandatory, for things like advice on being a Dasher, practicing possible delivers, and fun delivery games! That may also help keep us Dashers to stay motivated and want to Dash more! Thank you for this opportunity, I think this was an amazing idea!.Version: 2.160.0
My Door Dash ReviewI’ve been DoorDash in for over two years now my first month was good I made over $1000 but it took them over a month to pay me that because supposedly my bank card info was incorrect eventually I ended up getting it with the same bank info strange huh felt like they didn’t wanna pay out also I dislike they charge a fee of 199 to do fast pay these past few weeks I haven’t been able to get a dash schedule I don’t know if they hire just anyone or what the issue is but this is my main job only source of income and I haven’t been able to get a good schedule since this following Thursday it’s frustrating I don’t understand how there isn’t any schedules available when I call and try to speak with someone they have a really bad accident and it’s hard to communicate and I feel they don’t understand what I’m trying to get across to them last time the mistakes me trying to get schedules for dashes it’s very frustrating and they say first come first serve which I feel it’s unpredictable and unfair sometimes I’m up for hours trying to get a schedule and nothing sometimes I’ll get a schedule for two hours and only make $25-$30 if I’m lucky I hope Door DashSees my review and makes changes so there is availability for all Dashers not just first come first serve so for that you get three stars.Version: 2.242.0
It’s okay but...I’ve only been dashing for a week and I’ve already encountered some things that work against drivers. If an order isn’t ready at the restaurant, even if you let DD know, it still goes against your on time percentage. If you are picking up multiple orders from that location, all of your deliveries are going to be considered late, which mine were. Also, acceptance rate. I’ve only declined two orders, both large ice cream orders. Again, I just started so I don’t have a cold bag yet, and both orders were 10-12 miles away. It would have taken me two hours round trip on each order and I could tell by the offer totals that the customers didn’t tip. Perhaps a screen could appear after we’ve declined an order asking why we declined so you know why certain orders are being declined. Also, tips... on postmates, customers are given percentages of 20, 25, and 30% or custom amount when tipping. On a large postmates order you can make an extra $20/$30 on a tip. On DoorDash, the tip prompts when they place the order are $2, $3, $5, no tip.... so even on a large order or an order that is far away, you are spending more in gas and your own time waiting than you are tipped. This is a service and everyone is trying to make tips. It feels like the DoorDash app is designed to keep tips for the drivers low..Version: 2.156.0

Pay RateI appreciate the dashes however for the distance and the gas I believe the dash/delivery rate for each dash should significantly consider the distance , time, massive construction in particular areas and other obstacles.
