Amazon DoorDash Glitch – An unknown number of DoorDash users were flabbergasted Thursday when they found a glitch in the food-delivery app that allowed them to order free food, liquor, and other items.

The Amazon DoorDash Glitch was quickly spread on social media. The term “DoorDash” became a trending topic on Twitter Thursday night and remained so throughout Friday. Some people were disappointed that they had missed out on the free food, while others gleefully shared photos of their food and booze hauls. One user allegedly received a free order of Don Julio Reposado tequila worth $1,949.70.
DoorDash issued a statement acknowledging that a payment-processing issue had been resolved. The company also stated that they are working to cancel fraudulent orders and compensate merchants properly.
“On the evening of July 7th, DoorDash experienced a payment processing issue, and as a result, some users were able to check out for a short period of time without an authorised form of payment,” a spokesperson for DoorDash told the New York Post.
“We were subsequently notified that some users were placing fraudulent orders, and we immediately corrected the issue. We are actively cancelling fraudulent orders and working with affected merchants to ensure they are compensated for any unauthorized orders received.”
DoorDash did not provide any information on how it intends to deal with those who placed orders during the glitch.
The DoorDash hiccup occurred shortly after another food-service delivery app made headlines. Grubhub announced a partnership with Amazon earlier this week that will provide Amazon Prime members with a free year of Grubhub+.
