- There is no set minimum acceptance rate, but decreasing availability of deliveries has a negative impact on everyone.
If you have a low acceptance rate, it means that your business or restaurant is not popular enough to be on the app. You can take steps to increase your popularity for example by posting more deals and discounts in the “Offers” section of DoorDash.
See screenshot. Doordash does not deactivate driver accounts for low acceptance, they fraudulently deactivated my account because my acceptance rate was 17%.
After accepting some deliveries, you can refuse other ones without any consequences. A 70% acceptance rate would give you more access to markets and time slots in busy times.
When declining orders, your acceptance rate will lower. However, accounts cannot be terminated due to an agenda.
Now it appears that the company may be the first to drive down their pay into nearly nothing after expenses. While customers and restaurants pay DoorDash handsomely for use of the platform, workers are left to deliver food essentially free with only one source of income coming from customer tips instead of a paycheck.
