Open DoorDash app, tap ‘Help’ in the menu, and follow prompts to reach customer support.
Dial 855-973-1040 (general) or (855) 864-7626 (Dashers) for direct support.
Visit help.doordash.com and select the appropriate chat option (customer, dasher, merchant) for real-time assistance.
Ridester’s Thoughts: Start with in-app support first – that will usually help solve the most problems. If that doesn’t work, call the support number. It’s the second quickest way to get real-time help with your order without having to wait to hear back.
A missed food delivery, a payment method not working, and miscommunications in the app happen to folks all over the DoorDash platform.
That’s when DoorDash customer service has to step in and help customers, Dashers, and merchants out.
So, rather than stress about how you will reach them, let’s talk about the different ways you can reach DoorDash customer service and what the best ways are.

Editor’s Note: If DoorDash isn’t loading when you open the app, that’s a strong indication that DoorDash is down. There are multiple ways to diagnose the issue, get the app working, and order your food – check out the link above to our comprehensive guide on this issue.
1. Use DoorDash In-App Support
For most folks, getting help through the app will be the best way to get help with an issue. It’s included with the DoorDash app when you download it, but getting to it is another matter.
To use the in-app support in the DoorDash app, you’ll want to follow these steps:
1. Open the DoorDash app and navigate to your menu
2. Look for the Help option and tap it
3. Select the order that you need help with
4. Follow along with the prompts to provide more information to the system
From here, you’ll be directed to a webpage on DoorDash’s customer support website, or to a customer service agent who will help with the problem via text chat. In either case, you’ll be given a new avenue to start getting your problem resolved.
Right now, that’s all the in-app sport does: it gets you to the best place to file your complaint.
2. Call the DoorDash Phone Number
To get big problems solved faster, talking to someone directly is your best bet. Rather than scrambling around and trying to find it, here are the two phone numbers you can use, depending on your relationship with DoorDash:
- The DoorDash phone number is 855-973-1040. You can call this number for help whether you’re a customer, dasher, or restaurant.
- As a more direct way to get help, DoorDash delivery workers can also call the phone number (855) 864-7626 to reach a company representative.
Once you call in, you’ll have to go through some automated messages to route your call to the correct people. You’ll hear a message that gives you four options:
- Press “1” if you’re a restaurant that works with DoorDash (or is interested in a partnership)
- Press “2” if you’re a DoorDash customer
- Press “3” if you’re a DoorDash Dasher in need of support
- Press “4” if you’re interested in becoming a Dasher
Once you make your selection, DoorDash will transfer you to a live support representative.
Your hold time depends on a couple of factors, like time of day and call traffic. So, be prepared to wait a little while if you call at peak hours, such as lunchtime or in the evening. Don’t despair, however, as a support rep will eventually get to you.
Like many brands in the gig economy (including Shipt, Instacart, Uber Eats, and Postmates), DoorDash doesn’t frequently promote its phone number. But we’ve tested the number ourselves, and it does work.
Ignore any other DoorDash phone numbers you see floating around online, as they either won’t work or will direct you to automated phone systems (instead of live DoorDash support representatives).
3. DoorDash Live Chat
When you need a real-time conversation, the best DoorDash support option is their live chat. Available 24/7, this channel is user-friendly and often has wait times of a minute or less so you won’t be left hanging for long.
To start a live chat conversation, follow these simple steps:
1. Head to help.doordash.com.
2. Tap “Customer Chat” if you’re a customer, “Dasher Chat” if you’re a courier, or “Merchant Chat” if you’re a restaurant owner.
From there, you will see a few different options for support, depending on which option you selected.
Once a selection is made, you will be prompted to log into the DoorDash platform.
4. Select the order that you are seeking help with.
3. On the following page, a chat window should pop up in the lower right corner. If not, tap the “Chat” button. Take note of the wait times.
Fill in the form with your first name, last name, contact information, and support category and subcategory. Then, tap “Start chatting.” You’ll connect to a live support agent as soon as possible.
DoorDash can request that customers, couriers, and restaurant owners only use live chat for urgent and safety-related situations. This is only due to increased demand.
Most of the time, the live chat can be used for time-sensitive issues. For example, you may choose this customer service channel if you haven’t received an order that was marked as delivered or if a customer’s address is invalid on your navigation app.
This is also a great channel for app troubleshooting and deactivating or reactivating your account.
Of course, live chat is not a replacement for 911. If you’re in immediate danger or get into an accident, call emergency services (911 in the United States) or your local authorities.
You can reach out to DoorDash if needed once you’re safe. There isn’t a direct way to initiate a chat with support, however. This is a feature we’d really like to see DoorDash add, as it would make the app much more appealing to customers and drivers.
Once again, it’s much faster to call customer service at 855-973-1040.
4. DoorDash Email
For less urgent issues, you might choose to request support via email. Emails usually take a few days to resolve, but give customer support a chance to look into issues a little deeper.
No matter if you are a customer, Dasher, or restaurant owner, all customer support emails for DoorDash go to [email protected].
The DoorDash support email is [email protected]. This email address works for customers, Dashers, and restaurants.
While users could once directly email the company at [email protected], you now have to fill out a contact form first.
A DoorDash team member will email you back when your issue is resolved or when more information is needed (usually within a couple of business days).
Then, enter your full name or restaurant name, email address, phone number, support category and subcategory, and description of the issue. Finally, tap “Submit.”
In order to get your issue resolved as quickly as possible, make sure to be specific about your problem when you do email support.
Include screenshots (or photos) of your issue if relevant, and explain what steps you’ve already taken to try to solve it.This will help the DoorDash representative assist you in a more expedient manner.
According to data from GetHuman, responses to emails occur within 22 hours on average. So you can expect to wait at least a day for getting help via this support method. If your question is more urgent, then email support is a better method to use.
5. DoorDash Help Pages (Help Center)
Sometimes, it’s easier for DoorDash users to get the answers they need by searching the web for them. The food delivery company offers robust help pages that provide thorough answers for almost any common issue.
Customers can head to this dedicated page for assistance with anything from navigating the DoorDash app to ordering meals and resolving payment issues. You can choose to search for answers for your situation or sort through popular topics.
Couriers can similarly use the Dasher help page to get guidance for managing an account, completing deliveries, and using the DoorDash Driver app. This page is also a great resource for people who are interested in becoming couriers.
Finally, restaurant owners can use this merchant help page for information on getting started on DoorDash, updating accounts and menus, and using DoorDash software and hardware.
6. Contact DoorDash on Social Media
DoorDash’s customer service extends to social media users, too. Customers that have a Twitter account can get onto Twitter and ask DoorDash for support on that platform as well.
The account will be slow to reply sometimes, but it’s an alternative to filling out the email forms.
To get to DoorDash customer support on Twitter, you’ll want to find their customer support profile: @DoorDash_Help.
- You’ll tweet to that account, explaining the problem as best as you can with the character limit Twitter has.
- After you send the tweet, the account will either reply to your tweet or direct message you about the problem.
From here, the process will play out differently depending on your problem and what the social media account can do about it. Usually, their Twitter account sends you to another customer service route like the email form or the Help Center.
DoorDash’s Twitter Help account is not the most effective customer support option from DoorDash, but it can sometimes fill the spot of a phone call or email if you have a minor problem to sort out.
7. DoorDash Corporate Offices
DoorDash’s main headquarters is located at 303 2nd Street, Suite 800, San Francisco, CA 94107.
While this central location isn’t accessible to the public for day-to-day support inquiries, it can be used for mailing major concerns, such as unresolved large-scale issues.
However, for minor matters like a single incorrect delivery fee charge, it’s best to reach out through their customer service channels, as the chances of a response from the main office are slim.
Addresses for Dashers
Dashers have access to numerous smaller Dasher offices spread across various regions. These offices often have specific office hours during which couriers can schedule appointments, receive sign-up assistance, or obtain general driver information.
For local DoorDash support office details, you can navigate to DoorDash’s listings page, select your state, and then your city.

These countries include the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and India. Depending on your location, you might find it more beneficial to contact your local DoorDash office for support.
