If you can’t find the customer’s address or they aren’t answering their door, there are several ways you can try and contact the customer through your app:
Long restaurant wait times
If you’ve been waiting at a restaurant for a long time and no longer want to deliver the order, you can reject the order in the app and let us know it was because of the wait. You can do this by tapping ? on the Collect Order screen.
How busy your area is
With the app’s heatmap, you can check what customer demand in your area is like at any time. The map refreshes itself every 5 minutes so you can see when it’s a great time to go online, take a break, or try riding in a nearby zone that’s busier.
How you’re offered orders
If you’re concerned that other riders nearby seem to be being offered more orders, it’s important to remember that multiple factors influence which orders are offered to you. Factors like the distance between the restaurant and the customer and amount of traffic on the road. The Live Support team cannot control when or which orders are offered to you.
If a customer tells you an item is missing from their order, politely let them know that they should report it through the Deliveroo app. Doing this allows you to get back on the road quickly while our Customer Service helps the customer directly.
Questions about fees
If your question is about order fees or fee boosts, these should be sent to the Rider Support team through the fee query form here.
