How To Cancel A DoorDash Order?

The timeline of your order is the most crucial detail that will confirm your eligibility for a refund. If you have ordered, but the restaurant didn’t confirm the order, you will receive a full refund even if a dasher has been assigned to your order. The amount of each refund is shown at the bottom of the screen to cancel the order.
A partial refund is credited to the customer’s account if no dasher was assigned to the delivery, even if the restaurant has confirmed the order.
There is bad news for you if it’s too late and the Dasher has already picked up your order as you have the option to cancel the order, but you will not get a full refund due to the DoorDash refund policy.
