Now DoorDash could also start delivering your purchases to Facebook Marketplace


You may soon be able to have your Facebook Marketplace purchases picked up and delivered by DoorDash. According to a report by The Wall Street JournalFacebook’s parent company, Meta, partners with DoorDash to provide Marketplace items located up to 15 miles away.

However, not all items are eligible for delivery. Sources say WSJ that DoorDash will only deliver items small enough to fit in the trunk of a car and that drivers are expected to make deliveries within 48 hours. Either way, this seems like a useful option for anyone who isn’t able to pick up an item themselves.

It also fills a gap in Facebook Marketplace’s existing local delivery options, which only allow you to have larger items delivered through a service called Dolly. The service is limited to just over two dozen cities across the United States and allows you to connect with one or two local “assistants” who will load large items – like a refrigerator, shelf or air conditioner – into a van and deliver them. at your home for a fee. Besides Dolly and DoorDash, Meta also allows Marketplace sellers to ship items directly to a buyer’s address.

It’s still unclear exactly how many Marketplace users currently have the option for DoorDash deliveries, or how much it costs. Meta and DoorDash confirmed the initiative at WSJ, and say they have already tested it in several cities in the United States. When reached for comment, DoorDash spokesperson Ali Musa declined to share any further information, and Meta did not immediately respond.

The partnership comes just months after DoorDash CEO Tony Xu joined Meta’s board of directors and has reportedly been in talks since 2021. Over the past few years, DoorDash has expanded its delivery service to include items other than takeout orders, as it also delivers groceries, alcohol, personalized gifts, prescriptions and even COVID-19 test kits. Last year, the company signed an agreement with Dollar General to offer same-day delivery and is also looking to expand its service to Europe.
