DoorDash was officially unveiled in Australia in early September 2019 starting from Melbourne, the capital of the State of Victoria. Not only in Melbourne, but the US-based on-demand food delivery service also planned to be launched in regions around Victoria as well as some major cities in Australia such as Sydney and Brisbane until in early 2020.
Inside their official blog, DoorDash claimed they have been partnered with thousands of restaurants to the platform. Starting from the most favourite restaurants in the city such as Nando’s, Salsa’s, Betty’s Burgers to local tasty restaurants in the suburbs of Melbourne.
Your food order will be delivered by their courier called Dasher. No need to worry if your food will take a long time to deliver because the company has recruited Dasher in the last few months even before their on-demand food delivery officially arrives in Australia.
In Australia, DoorDash must compete with existing on-demand food delivery services such as Uber Eats which is the market leader in Australia and also their main rival in its homeland. In addition, there is also a UK-based company Deliveroo and Sydney-headquartered company Menulog. To gain the market share DoorDash sometimes offers promotions to attract other users to their platform.
One of the promotions carried out at the beginning of its appearance in the country is to guarantee the user’s food order will be arrived within 30 minutes or they will give you a voucher worth $30 for your next order.
Is DoorDash available in my area?
One way to find out is to install the DoorDash customer app, which can be downloaded at the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. After that, you can register yourself in the application and then add the delivery address where you want to receive the food you ordered.
If your address is supported by DoorDash delivery then after selecting address you will see a list of restaurants nearby. If your location is not supported then you will not see a list of restaurants, but the following message, “Coming soon, we don’t deliver to your address yet” on the app main page.
New User Promo Code
To attract food lovers in Australia, DoorDash provides many attractive promotions for those who use the application for the first time. This type of promo is the least difficult to find and has a higher discount value than a promo for existing users.
This promo usually can only be used once for your first order, unless stated otherwise.
|DDEXCLUSIVE25||25% off up to $7 for your first DoorDash order with minimum subtotal of $15|
|5OFFNEW||$5 off first time DoorDash orders over $15 in Australia|
|PICKUP5OFF||$5 off for your next two pickup order over $10|
Existing User Promo Code
Besides new users promotions, DoorDash also sometimes offers special offers for existing users. The main goal is to make its users continue to choose their service over competitors. However, this type of promo is more often given privately via customer e-mail that is registered on the app, so not everyone can apply it.
How to Use the Promo Code
If you have a DoorDash promo code that you want to use, you can directly enter the app, but make sure you already registered.
- Choose the restaurant and food you desire and then put it in cart.
- Once done picking out food items, tap the View Cart button in the bottom.
- Above the Subtotal you will see a promo code menu, tap and input the code.
