DoorDash requires its user to keep a payment method as default. It is applicable until you keep the account active.

The must-do rule of DoorDash is that your account should be linked to at least one payment method. If there is only one method linked, then that will be the default one. Which you are not allowed to delete. If there is more than one payment method you have with your DoorDash, then you can delete all of them but keep one active. But if you want to change your current method, then you have the option of adding another one first as a replacement policy. So, the only option left is by deleting or deactivating the DoorDash account entirely.

How to Get a Refund

You will get a full refund of your money if you deactivate the DashPass plan before using it. In another way, if you can cancel the order properly by following the steps then a refund is possible. There are two ways to get a refund after canceling your order:

  • You should call DoorDash Customer service at 855-973-1040. The customer representative will ask you the reason behind your cancellation of the order. Based on your answer the representative will tell you if you are eligible for the refund or not. Your order cancellation type may give you the refund in full or partial form. The representative will tell you the refund process as well.

Remember that there is huge phone traffic, so canceling the order by phone sometimes doesn’t happen conveniently.

  • There is a chat option you will find on the contact us page. Here you will have to write details of your cancellation reason. Make sure your explanation of the cancellation is perfect and convincing to get the refund properly. If your order cancellation is valid and allowed then it should take 5 minutes.

The refund comes in different forms. If the cancellation is submitted before the order confirmation, then you will get the full refund. But if you cancel the order immediately after the order is confirmed, then the refund will be half of the amount. There is also the DoorDash credit option, you can choose instead of the refund as cash. Another option is re-delivery if you change your decision.
