How to Move Starting Point on DoorDash?
You need to open the DoorDash app to see all the starting points around your location. If Dash Now is enabled you will receive a pop-up notification confirming you want to dash in your new location. By clicking okay you will change your dashing location and can now start dashing.
Can I Dash In Different Cities If I Move?
Maybe you like to move around and travel from city to city. You still want to work for DoorDash while traveling so you can always have some extra money. However, you aren’t sure if you will be allowed to Dash in different cities.
Well, I have news for you. You are not restricted to dashing in one city. Since you are not actually assigned a city you can easily work in any city as a door dasher. The only requirement that you have to follow is making sure DoorDash is offered in this area.
You’ll find that not all areas have DoorDash such as some smaller towns. So just make sure doordash is offered in this city and you are good to go once you change your location in the Dasher app.
Can I Dash Outside the United States?
Unfortunately, no, you cannot dash outside the United States. Even if you travel outside of the United States regularly and DoorDash is in the area, you are not allowed to dash in a different country.
For example, if you live in the United States, you cannot do DoorDash in Canada. You are probably wondering why but DoorDash doesn’t give an answer as to why you aren’t allowed to dash in a different country.
However, one could conclude that it has something to do with having the right papers to work in a different country. Just like immigrants have to get certain documents to be legalized for working in the United States, it’s the same in any other country.
Whatever the reason, DoorDash will not allow you to select an entirely different country to dash in. If you moved from the United States to Canada you may be able to call DoorDash support, explain your situation, and they may allow you to dash in Canada. This could be the case as long as you are legally able to work in Canada.
How Do I Dash In A New Location?
The first thing you want to do to start dashing into a new location is to go to your app. It will let you see other starting points that are near your location. If you want to dash in an entirely different city you can do so in the dasher app as well.
You can immediately dash now or schedule a dash if you are in a different city than where you originally door dash. If you are trying to door dash in a new location and the “Dash Now” button is not enabled what this means is that the location is not busy. In that case, you will need to look for a different area with the “Dash Now” button enabled, indicating that this area is busy.
Why Would I Need to Change Starting Point?
There are a few reasons why you would need to change starting points. One reason you would want or need to change your starting point is if the area you originally were working in is not busy at the moment. The area needs to be busy for you to be able to work and make money.
You’re not going to make much money if your area is not busy. You probably won’t get not even one order. So it is important that the area you choose to work in is currently getting orders.
Is the Dash Now Button Important?
Yes, the Dash Now button is very important. Whether this button is enabled or not will have an impact on you and where you are allowed to work. When the Dash Now button is enabled that means the area is busy and you can dash in this location.
On the other hand, if the Dash Now button is not enabled you will not be able to dash in this area and you’ll have to find another starting point where the Dash Now button is enabled.
The “Dash Now” button is important and definitely makes a difference and helps determine where you can and cannot dash.
