The coronavirus outbreak has resulted in a near stand-still of practically all businesses in many countries around the world. The COVID-19 subsequent stay-at-home and shelter-in-place orders are particularly hard on local businesses, especially restaurants, which heavily rely on in-house dining. DoorDash, a service that offers food deliveries, says that it’s committing up to $100 million to local restaurants.

DoorDash will enact a 50 percent reduction in the commission it charges restaurants for using its meal delivery service. That’s the $100 million commitment. Meaning, the company will apply the discount toward the commitment.

Here’s a quick example of how it works. If a local eatery would normally pay DoorDash a $3 commission, that amount would be lowered to $1.50. The $1.50 in savings would then apply to the $100 million figure. Additionally, DoorDash also waived commission fees on pickup orders.
