How to Order Alcohol on Doordash?

You then add alcohol to the order like you would do with a normal order. 

If it’s your first time ordering alcohol, then you will have to submit a picture of your state issued ID to the app. If you have already uploaded a picture of your ID from ordering alcohol in the past, then you will not have to upload another picture. 

The Doordash driver will check your ID when they make the delivery, so make sure you have it before placing the order

What Type of Alcohol Does Doordash Deliver?

Doordash will deliver wine, beer, mixed drinks, and even liquor in some locations. Again, this depends on the laws in your area – some jurisdictions have rules on what alcohol can be delivered and the time that liquor can be sold.

The best way to know what type of alcohol Doordash will deliver is to browse the app with the alcohol tab enabled and see what drinks are available. 

Does it Cost Extra to Order Alcohol on Doordash?

Yes, the delivery fee is higher when ordering alcohol on Doordash. You can expect to pay around 30% more on the standard delivery fee if there’s alcohol in the order. 

This is because a lot of Doordash drivers do not like delivering alcohol, so Doordash incentivizes drivers to deliver alcohol by increasing the delivery fee. 

Does Doordash Deliver Alcohol to Drunk People?

Doordash’s official policy states that drivers are not allowed to deliver alcohol to minors or those that are already intoxicated. However, many drivers do not seem to mind delivering alcohol to intoxicated people – it’s better than the drunk person driving to the store to pick up alcohol. 

To answer the question, a Doordash driver can refuse an alcohol delivery if you are too drunk, but they probably will not do that. They will almost always refuse the delivery if you cannot provide an ID card, though. 

Final Thoughts

Doordash does deliver alcohol if you live in the right location. The delivery fee for ordering alcohol can be quite expensive, but it’s still much safer than driving to the store if you have already had some drinks. 

Just make sure to have your ID card with you when ordering alcohol on Doordash. The driver will need to see it before giving you the alcohol.
