"Our goal at DoorDash is to empower local businesses and help them capture more of their respective market and reach more consumers. Over the past year, we've introduced offerings to help restaurants define their own futures. Today, we are changing how we do business to provide more choices, and better choices, for restaurants. We hope that with our new flexible plans and increased digital marketing services, restaurants will continue to accelerate into the future and grow," said Shilpa Arora, General Manager of DoorDash Canada.

"We welcome the flexible partnership plans DoorDash is launching and look forward to continued collaboration with them. It is great to have flexible options available for restaurants to choose from. So many restaurants use third-party delivery companies in various ways, and many use them as their own marketing department so these offerings will help the continued growth of our industry," said Ian Tostenson, President and CEO of the British Columbia Restaurant and Food Services Association.

Improving DoorDash Canada Pricing With More Choices and Lower Pickup Fees 

To help all participating restaurants meet their goals, all local Canadian restaurants on DoorDash will have a choice of three different Partnership Plans, with commission rates that vary based on the level of services and marketing provided.

  • DoorDash Basic (20%):

  • DoorDash Plus (25%):

  • DoorDash Premier (29%):

Restaurant partners across Canada have also welcomed the optionality to select the best partnership plans that suit their needs best.

"As a new business owner, the priority for me is exposure and I think it's a great option to have different packages to choose from. It gives me the chance to look at my budget as well as the amount of exposure I need for my business and then decide what kind of features I want through my partnership with DoorDash. Sometimes finding something in between is great especially for newer stores," said Alan Sham, owner of Its Tea.

"I welcome the different Partnership Plans from DoorDash as it gives a restaurant owner like me the ability to pick and choose what's best for your business, I think it's a great thing that DoorDash is doing," said Noel Scott, owner, Eighties Restaurant.
