If you’re in a large family, or your coworkers like to order lunch as a group, you’ve probably had some challenges ordering from DoorDash.
Large orders can quickly become difficult to keep track of, and figuring out the payment can be a pain.
Luckily, DoorDash has some features that will make your orders less stressful.
Can You Split Payment on DoorDash?
You cannot split payments on Doordash. The app allows customers to make “group orders” for multiple people to order, but the payment must be made up front by the person completing the order.
Group orders are a more convenient way to handle Doordash orders between groups of people. The food will all be delivered in one go, and the checkout can be completed by the person who initiated the group order.
Keep reading to find details on how to do group orders on DoorDash, as well as information on payment and limits on DoorDash group orders.
How to Group Order on DoorDash?
Setting up a group order on Doordash is fairly straightforward. You can do it by following a few simple steps:
- Log into your Doordash account and select the restaurant you want to order from
- Click the “Group Order” button on the restaurant page
- Send the link to other customers wishing to add to the order
- Once everyone is finished adding items, you can close the group order and complete checkout normally
It’s important to keep in mind that the primary customer for the order will have to pay for the entire order up front. If you want to split the cost of the order, it will be necessary to have the other customers transfer funds via e-transfer or some other method.
It is not necessary for every customer to have a Doordash account to initiate a group order. Only the person initiating the group order needs to have an account with Doordash.
The primary customer may also put a limit on how much each person may add to the order.
Who Pays For a Group Order on DoorDash?
If you’re ordering with a large group of people, you’re probably wondering who ends up paying. Unfortunately, Doordash does not allow customers to split the cost of an order between multiple people or payment methods. This means that one person will have to front the money for the entire meal.
The primary customer pays for group orders on Doordash. The primary customer is the person who initiated the group order. There is no way to split the cost of a group order between multiple customers.
If you wish to split the cost of a Doordash order, you will have to get the other customers to transfer you the money for their portion of the order. This can be done with services such as Interac e-transfer, or through apps such as CashApp.
What Is The Limit on DoorDash Group Orders?
There is normally no limit on Doordash group orders. Each customer may add as much food as they want. However, if you want to set a limit for how much each person may add to the cart, there is a way to do that.
There is no limit on Doordash group orders by default. The primary customer who initiated the group order may set a limit for how much each person may add to the order. The app will prompt you to select a limit when you set up the group order.
The limit can be set to $10, $15, $20, other, or no limit. By default, the no limit option will be selected. It’s important to remember to set a limit if you wish to limit how much people can add to the order.
DoorDash is a convenient way to have food delivered right to your door.
However, it can quickly become confusing and stressful when ordering food for large groups of people. In order to make things a bit easier, DoorDash allows customers to create “group orders” where everyone can add their items separately for the same order.
Unfortunately, the group order function does not allow customers to split the payment between multiple people or payment methods.
The primary customer who initiated the group order must pay up front for the entire order.
Other customers wishing to pay their share must transfer it to the primary customer through a service such as Interac e-transfer.
