How to create test orders


In order to create test orders the user attempting to place the test order must have:

  • Access to the Developer Portal (connect with your organization's Developer Portal admin to be added as a user)
  • An active test store with an active menu, both can be confirmed using the Store and Menu Info Endpoints
    • If the store is not activated yet or there is no active menu on the store, you will be redirected to the DoorDash home-page when trying to complete the below steps


To ensure that order integration functionality works as expected as part of the Marketplace integration, users are able to place test orders in DoorDash’s test environment via the Developer Portal for their test stores. These test orders will flow through the integration to allow partners to ensure everything is functioning as expected downstream.

Get Started

Step 1: Navigate to Stores within Developer Portal

Login to the DoorDash Developer Portal. Navigate to the stores page in the Marketplace dropdown menu to view your test stores. For each store, there is an option to “Create Test Order” after selecting the three dots to view more options next to the test store:

Test Orders can also be placed for stores on your production integrations, however they will auto-cancel after 15 minutes and will not be paid out to the Merchant.

For the store where you wish to place a test order, click Create test order from the 3 dot menu; a modal will then appear with instructions on next steps. Once ready to proceed with the test order, click the Create and copy login link button.

After the link has been successfully opened, you will be redirected to your test store’s menu on Set your delivery address near the store (this can be found by clicking See More under Store Info) and create your desired test order and navigate through the checkout flow. At this stage, you will be prompted to add a payment method, as shown below: Developer Portal - Order Page to create Order

Step 4: Add Test Credit Card Credentials

This step only needs to be completed during the first time your test account is used.

Once being prompted to add a payment method, please associate one of Stripe’s test credit card credentials as outlined at this link. Stripe supports test credit cards in multiple countries. Adding these Stripe credit cards to the test account ensures that you do not have to use any personal funds to place test orders. Note: once this credit card information has been added once, the card should be saved to your account for future use, eliminating the need to complete this step for future test orders.

Step 5: Place Order

Once the Stripe credit card information has been saved you can press the “Place Order” button to complete the test order process. At this point, the order will be transmitted from DoorDash to the partner for order confirmation.

Step 6: Progress Check

Once the test order has been appropriately confirmed by the partner, the status will be updated on the test order to show that it is now being prepared by the test store:
