DoorDash launches DoubleDash for offering double deliveries in Australia

Rebecca Burrows, Australia General Manager, DoorDash

DoorDash users can order from double the locations in one easy delivery for no extra cost with the addition of DoubleDash, the on-demand delivery platform’s latest feature.

The new DoubleDash ordering experience is the first of its kind in the Australian market and has been introduced in response to changing consumer behavior and needs.

Since entering the Australian market in September 2019, DoorDash has over time, observed that many customers were ordering from multiple stores within short time frames.

DoubleDash provides a convenient and affordable solution for clients placing multiple orders.

Australians looking for more convenient options

DoorDash Australia’s General Manager, Rebecca Burrows expressed her optimism.

“The DoubleDash feature demonstrates the shift in consumer preferences across a range of verticals, with Australians looking for more convenient options than ever before.”

“The global COVID-19 variants and pandemic has resulted in a dramatic move towards on-demand delivery across the country, on far more than just food products.”

“DoubleDash enables Australians to get more from their neighborhood in a single delivery.”

“Whether it’s adding wine from the bottle shop to their pizza delivery or getting local groceries delivered with coffee in the morning, DoorDash Australia has customers covered.”

DoorDash’s expansive reach in Australia

DoorDash’s current network of drivers, which reaches over 80% of Australia’s population, will be utilized for DoubleDash deliveries. Users can select the order in which their chosen items are picked up, to ease concerns of hot food going cold or ice cream melting.

For merchants, a partnership with DoorDash leverages the on-demand delivery platform’s existing technology and widespread driver network to ease the strain on their resources, while giving them the opportunity to grow and meet increasing demand.

DoorDash users can place an order via the DoorDash app and select the delivery option.
