UTAH (ABC4) – Whoops!
Thousands of hungry customers took advantage of a DoorDash glitch on Thursday, which allowed them to make orders without verifying payment.
As a result, thousands of users flooded social media platforms with posts and memes, showing them making lavish orders ranging from hundreds of dollars in chicken wings to thousands of dollars in top-shelf bottles of tequila.
Many expressed joy over being able to make the DoorDash order of their dreams while others were disappointed that they weren’t able to take advantage of the glitch.
A DoorDash spokesperson released the following statement to ABC4 regarding the glitch:
“On the evening of July 7th DoorDash experienced a payment processing issue, and as a result, some users were able to check out without an authorized form of payment for a short period of time. We were subsequently notified that some users were placing fraudulent orders, and we immediately corrected the issue. We’re actively canceling fraudulent orders, and are in touch with merchants impacted to ensure they are compensated for any unauthorized orders they may have received. We work to ensure that we are always offering the highest quality of service to the communities we serve, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this.“
It’s unclear how long the error affected the food ordering service.
