DoorDash partners with Best Buy for on-demand delivery

Online food delivery platform DoorDash will partner with the world’s largest specialty consumer electronics retailer for on-demand delivery. With this new nationwide partnership in the US, Best Buy is the first national consumer electronics retailer on the DoorDash marketplace. 

Vice president of New Verticals at DoorDash, Fuad Hannon says, “This partnership provides consumers access to Best Buy’s diverse selection of specialty consumer electronics with the speed and convenience of DoorDash. With the holiday season around the corner, this is a valuable occasion for consumers to shop for tech gifts for everyone on their list and experience the joy of shopping at Best Buy directly on the DoorDash app.”

No delivery fee 

In addition, Best Buy products will be available on DashPass, DoorDash’s membership program that offers no delivery fee on eligible orders from thousands of groceries, convenience, and retail stores nationwide. DashPass members can enjoy these benefits on all eligible orders that meet minimum subtotal amounts from Best Buy. This is all in time for the festive season. 

Fortune 50 company 

This month, DoorDash was named a Fortune 50 company. The online food delivery platform earned this recognition due to its market potential and their capacity to deliver on this potential. 

The San Francisco-based company was founded in 2013. DoorDash builds products and services to help businesses innovate, grow, and reach more customers. 

Grocery delivery partnership 

Last month DoorDash furthered its partnership network, this time with North California’s Gus’s Community Market and New Leaf Community Markets. Through this partnership, customers can enjoy on-demand delivery on groceries. 

Consumers can save time from going to the shop and have their essentials delivered right to their door from all Gus’s Community Market locations. In addition, same-day delivery from New Leaf will now be available for shoppers on DoorDash. From organic and seasonal produce to all-natural grocery items, or high-quality body care and wellness supplements, consumers can place orders on-demand from New Leaf’s six stores along the Central Coast.

E-commerce market in US 

Mordor Intelligence reports the rising presence of mobile shopping in the US e-commerce market is a growing trend. “Smartphones are the most popular online purchase in the United States.” The report adds the increased adoption of technologies such as the internet of things (IoT) and machine learning in healthcare is expected to boost the growth of the global B2C e-commerce market over the next five years. 

“This is due to the rise of low-cost smartphones, the expansion of telecom infrastructure, and an increasing number of product launches with more advanced features. However, rising cybercrime, digital fraud, and other malpractices may stifle market growth shortly.”
