A gift delivery is a delivery where the customer ordered food to be delivered to somebody else - the gift recipient.
In the DoorDash app, customers can now order food, alcohol, and convenience items and get them delivered to a gift recipient. When checking out a gift, customers have the option to provide the gift recipient’s phone number so Dashers can reach out to them directly with delivery questions.
How do I know if a customer is sending a gift?
In the Dasher app, you’ll see that you’re delivering a gift after you’ve picked up the order from the restaurant. The drop-off screen will contain information about the gift sender and gift recipient. You’ll also be able to contact the gift sender or gift recipient (when contact is provided) from this screen.
When gift recipient contact is provided
The gift recipient name and contact buttons appear on top. Gift sender name and contact options appear under address information.
