Food delivery platform DoorDash said Tuesday it is launching a new pricing scheme to give local restaurants more choice and flexibility. From today, restaurants can choose between 3 different delivery commission price points, starting with a 15% option. In addition, the company is lowering Pickup commission costs to 6% and making Storefront, a commission-free online ordering product, free for all restaurants, except for payment-processing fees. “These actions are intended to create more choices and solutions across a portfolio of restaurants’ needs and put more profits into the pockets of local businesses,” the company said in a statement.
