Does DoorDash take a commission?

No, they charge a flat fee of $8.50CAD or $6.99USD.

Does it redirect to DoorDash?

No the complete experience is on your Sociavore website. The only time the DoorDash logo appears to the guest is when they receive a tracking link to watch their courier live on a map.

How do tips and fees get remitted to DoorDash Drive?

Sociavore takes care of collection automatically to save restaurants time. Nothing needs to be done on the restaurant's side to remit payment or tips.

Here's an example:

The customer places a $50 order. They pay the $4.99 for delivery and a $5.00 driver tip. The full order amount is $59.99. Sociavore will automatically deduct $8.50 for the DoorDash Drive delivery ($4.99 guest + $3.51 that the restaurant is covering) and the $5.00 tip directly from the transaction (total of $13.50).

Where is this supported?

Restaurants will have to fall within DoorDash's delivery footprint. This means it covers ~85% of the population of the United States. Less in Canada. When setting up your Delivery Zone, we will check if Drive is available when you try to select it as an option.

What radius does it cover?

This will vary depending on time of day, driver availability and your neighbourhood, but it is 5-8 miles radius typically from your location.
