Some customers who live on campus are no longer able to place certain orders.

DoorDash has introduced tough new measures in Massachusetts to prevent underage alcohol sales.

The Bay State has a high concentration of college students and those who live on campus are no longer able to order alcohol.

DoorDash also offers delivery drivers further compliance training to identify underage customers making deliveries.

Drivers must complete a Safe and Responsible Delivery module to accept alcohol orders.

In addition, it is now easier for drivers to return alcohol products when a delivery cannot be completed.

The service also uses a third-party company to improve its ID card scanning technology.

“Put simply, if you are on a college campus, you cannot order alcohol for delivery on the DoorDash Marketplace platform,” DoorDash said in an announcement

Orders of alcohol on the platform increased by more than 100 percent year-on-year in 2021-2022 as customers appreciated the convenience of delivery apps for all types of purchases.


However, a stricter alcohol policy isn’t the only significant change DoorDash has made recently.

The app now accepts payments via EBT/SNAP benefits – commonly referred to as food stamps.

Customers can add their EBT/SNAP card to the platform and place orders with eligible suppliers.

According to the company, the new payment option will help break down accessibility barriers and increase convenience for SNAP users.

Max Rettig, vice president of public policy and social impact at DoorDash, said, “As part of our mission to strengthen local economies, we’re proud to expand access to food for the communities we serve.”


Customers who frequently place orders with DoorDash could benefit from the DashPass premium subscription tier.

For $9.99 per month, customers get unlimited free shipping and other special discounts.

You might only need to place two to three orders a month to get your money’s worth.
