Original story (published on November 09, 2021) follows:

Just in case you’re trying to get your head around why Doordash isn’t working for you, find solace in the fact that you aren’t the only one facing issues with the app in the past hour or so.

A quick look at micro-blogging site Twitter conveys there are many others affected by the same issue. As per reports, while some say the app keeps crashing, others say that it does not let them sign in.

For a quick glance, here’s how some of the complainants word the problem:

Down detector – a popular service that gives information about live outages — also conveys that Doordash is indeed going through an outage:


Most reports indicate that users are facing issues with the Doordash Dasher application as they aren’t able to fulfill orders.

Luckily, it seems that Doordash is aware of the problem and the app now displays a message saying “We’re currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please try again later.”


That said, we’re keeping tabs on all related developments, and will update this page with relevant info as and when we come across any.

So in case, you’re encountering the problem discussed here, stay hooked for updates.
