Delivery FAQ's

How large is my store’s delivery radius? 

Delivery radius is typically 3-5 miles. This is determined by DoorDash's technology and based on geographical location (city vs. suburbs), with cities generally having smaller radii -- their algorithm determines delivery zones on a per location basis (this algorithm is not shared). Via their API, all Bbot can do is ask the question "can you deliver from A to B" and they respond with either "yes" or "no."

How long should I wait before contacting DoorDash if a driver is late?

If the Dasher is more than 15 minutes late, contact DoorDash Drive support at (855) 973-1040.

I remade an order because a Dasher was late. How can I seek reimbursement? 

You can email DoorDash Drive support at

This Dasher did not meet my restaurant’s expectations. What should I do?

Email and the DoorDash Drive support team will block that driver from coming back to your store in the future. 

Who receives the tips that my customers leave when they order through Bbot?

For all DoorDash Drive orders, 100% of the tip goes to the DoorDash driver. The tip and the $7.25 delivery fee are automatically withheld from your Bbot payout via Stripe.
