DoorDash has surcharges on top of surcharges to cover their costs, and frequently mark up menu price as well. They can eat $0.20.



I received some huge % off an order from them, recently, and tried the service for the first and last time. I had to hunt to find a place to order from that wasn't absurdly expensive even with the discount. Menu prices were significantly higher than real menu prices in most cases, hiding the actual cost of the service, which did have a fee on top of that, and making it so instead of the delivery cost kinda flattening out the more you order like it does with, say, normal pizza delivery, it got higher and higher the more you ordered.
