Are you looking to order some food or groceries, and are wondering whether or not DoorDash takes PayPal?
Being one of the largest food delivery platforms on the planet, DoorDash accepts a wide variety of payment options, both on their website and within their mobile app.
But is PayPal one of them? In this article, we’ll cover everything that you need to know!
Does DoorDash Take PayPal?
Yes. DoorDash takes PayPal for all of their orders, in all of the countries that they operate in – including the United States, Canada, Germany, Australia, and Japan.
DoorDash also accepts all PayPal-supported services, such as PayPal Credit and PayPal cash cards.
To order DoorDash using PayPal, all you’ve got to do is select it as a payment method during checkout.
Once you’ve filled your cart with everything that you want to have delivered, go to the checkout page.
One of the first things it will ask you is what payment method you want to use. Simply tap on ‘PayPal’, and continue on with the checkout process.
Note that PayPal is also available when paying through DoorDash’s website on your computer as well.
What Are The Benefits Of Paying For DoorDash With PayPal?
When you order DoorDash, is it better to pay with a credit card, or with PayPal?
The truth is, there are a number of benefits that paying with PayPal offers.
One of them is an extra set of buyer protection policies. While DoorDash should certainly refund you if your food isn’t delivered or something’s wrong, PayPal adds another layer of protection.
If for whatever reason DoorDash doesn’t make things right, you can always dispute things with PayPal, who should take care of it for you.
Additionally, PayPal offers additional convenience, since it remembers all of your saved card information. While this is less of a benefit when ordering on mobile (because DoorDash will save your card information anyway when paying with a credit or debit card), it’s still an extra convenience if you’re ordering DoorDash for the first time.
In the event of a DoorDash data breach, it may be safer to have PayPal saved as your primary payment method, than to have a credit card saved. While DoorDash surely encrypts and keeps your info safe, it’s still a good habit to be as mindful of your data as possible.
