How to Change Location on Doordash

One of the coolest new delivery services around is Doordash. And if you haven’t heard of it yet, you’ll be glad you came here. It’s a new way to order food and get it delivered right to your door. So you can avoid the hassle of dining out or cooking dinner. It’s not only great for busy people like yourself. But also for restaurants that are looking for ways to reach a wider audience in new ways.

No doubt it’s an excellent app for people who don’t want to cook for the night. But if you moved to a different place then ordering food will be trouble. So I’m going to share a step by step guide on how you can change the address on Doordash.

How Does Doordash Work?

First, you can check out the website by typing this URL doordash.com on the address bar of any browser. There, you’ll find a list of local restaurants that deliver to your doorstep. You can search by cuisine type, price point, and other preferences. Even narrow the list down by what’s open now and what’s open later on in the evening. It’s perfect for when you’re already in bed but want a midnight snack.

Once you’ve found the perfect place to order from. Click on the restaurant name and view the available menu items. You’ll see photos and descriptions of each item, along with its price and location (if it’s not too far away). If there’s something that really catches your eye, select it in your cart using the “Add to Cart” and Checkout. It’s that simple!

However, Doordash completely works based on your location. If you mess that up, your order will never reach you.
