Depending on the type of restaurant and the area you cover, you may want to change when we alert DoorDash to pickup your order.
This needs to be configured in 2 ways:
In the location settings, in the delivery area box, you have a field that is labeled "Delay (in seconds)". For example, if you want to alert DoorDash to an order only 10 minutes after it has been placed, select 600 seconds.
If an order is placed for a future date (for example: a customer places an order at 9 am for 4 pm), you can choose how much of a drive time to allow DoorDash.
As before, this may vary according to the type of restaurant you operate, and how large the area is.
Our default is 45 minutes prior to when the delivery is due (using the example from before, if the order is scheduled to arrive at 4 pm, the Dasher is prompted to pick it up at 3:15 pm, and to deliver it at around 4 pm - depending on DoorDash's availability and schedule).
If you want to shorten the time (most notably if you deliver food that should arrive to the customer hot), you can set the time yourself.
In the POS parameters enter posDeliveryDuration, and in the field next to it enter the amount of time you want to alert DoorDash prior to the delivery time, in minutes.
Again, using the same example from before, if a delivery is scheduled to arrive at 4 pm, and the setup is like the one in the image (25 minutes), the Dasher will be scheduled to pick up the meal at 3:35 pm.
