If you do deliveries with DoorDash, you might want to know if you can still use the app if you travel to another city for a few months, move out to another place, or just change the starting point in the city you are in.
Thankfully DoorDash allows you to change your starting point whenever you want, as long as it is available in the city. If you want to know how to change the location on your app, then you are in the right place, so let’s get started!
How Do I Change My Starting Point on DoorDash?
DoorDash is available in many cities and it will allow you to change locations whenever you need to, just keep in mind that if you are a Dasher based in one country, you won’t be able to deliver orders in another country.
So if you want to change your starting point, whether it is in another location nearby or another city, here is how you do it:
- First, you have to open the DoorDash app, so you are able to see all the starting points around your current location.
- From there, if you have Dash Now enabled you will see a notification confirming that you want to dash from a new location, just tap “Okay” and you will successfully change your starting point.
- If you don’t have Dash Now enabled then go to a busy starting point, which will be red in the app, and tap “Dash Now”, or you can tap the location you want as your starting point, then tap “Change” when the app asks you to update your location.
- If you are on an iOS device then you’ll have to click on the schedule tab and select “Change my dashing location” when the app asks you to update your starting point.
Once you are done you’ll be able to continue dashing from your new starting point, just make sure your area has a lot of customers so you can make the most out of the app.
Why Can’t I Change My Starting Point on DoorDash?
If you want to change your starting point but you keep encountering some issues, then there are a few reasons why this might be happening.
You are in a city or country where DoorDash is not available.
DoorDash services are available in the US, Canada, Australia, Puerto Rico, and Japan, so if you are not in any of these countries, you won’t be able to use the app. Also, keep in mind not all the cities in these countries offer DoorDash services.
You may be in an area where there are not enough orders for you to start making deliveries.
Too Many Dashers
If you are in a busy area but there are already too many Dashers working there, then you won’t be able to deliver orders.
