How to order alcohol delivery through DoorDash
For drinking-age customers, the process is similar to ordering food through the app, but with additional steps to verify your ID and age before purchasing.
1. Open the DoorDash app. If you're in an area with alcohol delivery, you'll be able to toggle the alcohol tab to order from restaurants, grocery stores, local retailers and convenience stores. Add items to your order as you normally would.
2. Before completing your DoorDash order, the app will ask to verify your age by uploading a picture of your ID. This is a one-time process that you won't have to do again for your next alcohol order, the company says on its website.
Only the photo on your ID and your birth date will be visible to the person delivering your order, according to DoorDash. The rest of the information will be blurred, and once the order is complete, the deliverer no longer has access to your ID.
