Why Does DoorDash Want You to Verify With Another Card?
When people ask why DoorDash wants me to verify with another card, the answer is pretty straightforward.
Hackers work day and night to steal information you want to keep safe and private.
Verification protects you from fraud, scams, and identity theft.
Hence, verification with another card serves as an anti-fraud mechanism.
If you don’t want to register a new card, there’s a way to avoid this.
Delete your current information, restart your device, and try everything again.
Keep reading to learn more about the second card verification and how to complete it.
Do You Have to Verify With Another Card?
Well, this is a bit of a yes and no answer.
You can skip the second card verification process by restarting your device or using the Desktop version.
But if you do have a second debit or credit card, the fastest way to complete the step would be to enter its information.
DoorDash will check your account in no time.
If you don’t have another card, stick around!
Are Payments Secure on DoorDash?
DoorDash keeps your payment information private, meaning your payments are secure.
No matter the payment method you use, your DoorDasher won’t be able to see it when dropping off your food.
But to ensure your privacy and security, it’s best to pay for your DoorDash delivery with Google Pay, PayPal, or Apple Pay.
Those methods are generally the most secure ones when shopping online.
You can also call Dashers without any worries.
DoorDash will also ensure your phone number remains private.
How to Handle Second Card Verification on DoorDash?
When DoorDash asks you to confirm your account with another card, you’ll have several ways to resolve the situation.
It depends on whether you have a second debit card or not.
Here are your options.
1. Enter Second Card Information
If you have a second debit or credit card, enter its information to complete verification.
2. Use the Desktop Version
If you don’t have a second debit card, use a computer to make the orders.
When using the Desktop version, you only need to scan the original card, and DoorDash will verify your account.
3. Delete Credit Card Info and Re-Enter
Another option would be to delete your current card information.
Simply restart your mobile phone and re-enter your credit card info on DoorDash.
You can do this if you don’t have a second payment option.
4. Use Apple or Google Pay
We recommend using Apple or Google Pay.
Besides being more secure, there’s less chance of DoorDash requiring additional verification on these platforms.
What Payment Methods Does DoorDash Accept?
DoorDash offers various payment methods.
When ordering on the app, you must pay for everything upfront, including the delivery fee, food cost, and occasionally a customer tip.
But, to ensure everything goes well, you must choose an accepted payment option, such as:
- Credit or debit card
- Google Pay
- Apple Pay
- DoorDash Gift Card
If you want, you can also upload multiple payment methods onto a single account.
But when paying for your DoorDash order, you’d have to choose one payment option (splitting between two cards isn’t allowed).
How to Add a Credit Card to Your DoorDash Account?
Doordash has, luckily for us, made adding another credit card to your account easy.
You just need to follow a few steps, and your account will be good to go.
If you’re using your phone, the steps you need to take to add a desired payment method are as follows:
- Open your DoorDash app.
- Look for Payment Methods or Payment.
- Click Add Payment Method.
- Tap the arrow next to Credit/Debit Card.
- Enter the required card information.
- Tap Add Card.
- Select your default card.
When using the Desktop version for adding a payment method, you’ll need to do the following:
- Log in at doordash.com.
- Click on the icon at the upper left corner of the website.
- Choose Payment.
- Click Credit/Debit Card under the Add New Payment Method icon.
- Enter the required card information.
- Click Add Card.
- Choose your default card and click Set Default.
Transactions that involve using cash instead are a no-go, as cash isn’t a current DoorDash payment option.
However, if you’d like to, you can still tip your DoorDash delivery driver with cash.
Can You Use Two Different Cards on DoorDash?
DoorDash allows you to add several payment methods, so you have the flexibility to choose how to pay.
So, yes, you can use two different cards on DoorDash but for two separate orders.
For example, you can add two credit cards, like a DoorDash gift card and a PayPal card (limited to only one PayPal account).
But you can’t split the cost of an order between two different cards.
When paying for your food, DoorDash will require you to pay with one form of payment.
Also, with DoorDash using restaurant gift cards as a payment method is not an option (DoorDash has its gift cards instead).
What Happens When You Change Your Card on DoorDash?
You can change or update your credit card information at any time, meaning you don’t have limitations.
However, if you want to replace your current card, that would involve adding a new car and removing a card from DoorDash that you don’t want to use anymore.
Set your new card as the default payment method, and you’re good to go.
