Key Takeaways

  • Deleting a DoorDash payment needs a primary and alternate method set first.
  • Swipe left on a secondary payment method in the app to delete it.
  • Use the DoorDash website as an alternative to delete payment methods.
  • Add a new method, make it primary, then delete the old one.

Read This Before You Begin

Before you delete a payment method on DoorDash, consider two key points:

  1. You need to have both a primary and an alternate payment method set up. If you’ve only set a primary, you can’t remove it directly. Instead, add a secondary method, designate it as the primary, and then delete the original.
  2. To delete a payment method using your phone, swipe left on the secondary payment option.

Being aware of these nuances ensures a smoother process when trying to remove a payment method.

How to Remove a Card From DoorDash

Managing DoorDash Payment Methods

DoorDash offers versatility with its payment options. You can store multiple methods like credit cards, PayPal, and even DoorDash gift cards.

This allows you to choose the most convenient payment method whenever you order. However, remember that only one PayPal account can be linked at a time.

There’s no specified maximum for stored cards. Yet, for security purposes, DoorDash might set a limit.

Can You Pay With Two Payment Methods?

DoorDash doesn’t support splitting the bill between two different payment methods. When you order, the app requires you to select a single payment method which will be charged for the entire amount.

A workaround? Use group orders. Send a special link to friends or family, everyone selects their meals, and one person pays. Others can then reimburse the payer using Venmo, PayPal, etc.

Brett’s Take: Thoughts From an Expert

It can sometimes be hard to remove a payment method from DoorDash, especially if the one you are trying to remove is set as the default payment method.

If you’re having trouble, try removing the card from DoorDash using the desktop website instead of the app. This sometimes helps.

You can also try adding a prepaid card to your account, setting it to default, and then removing the old card. This has worked for some users.

If you need to, contact DoorDash customer service and they can help you remove the account or work through difficult issues that are not common.

What Payment Methods Does DoorDash Accept?

  • Credit Cards: DoorDash supports Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. You can store multiple cards, providing flexibility in case one reaches its limit.
  • Debit Cards: Accepted brands include Visa and Mastercard. Like with credit cards, you have the option to store several.
  • PayPal: An integrated option in DoorDash is PayPal. Some users store their cards in PayPal and then select within PayPal which to use for DoorDash, adding a layer of security.
  • Gift Cards: Buy a DoorDash gift card online or in select stores and add its value to your account. It can stand alone or be combined with other methods. Thinking of gift ideas? A DoorDash gift card is always handy.
  • Other Methods: DoorDash also supports Apple Pay and Google Pay in its app.
