Deliveries In Less Than 48 Hours
However, it is worth noting that not all orders from the Marketplace will be eligible for delivery. WSJ sources claim that couriers will only transport packages that can fit in a car trunk up to 15 miles away.
More importantly, deliveries are anticipated to be finished within 48 hours. However, the price DoorDash will charge for the service is unknown.
According to WSJ, the program has recently undergone testing in a number of American locations.

Currently, a company called Dolly delivers goods ordered through Marketplace. According to The Verge, the service is only offered in more than a dozen cities throughout the nation and is limited to bulky products.
Meta and DoorDash noted that the cooperation between the two companies is still in its infancy. According to a source familiar with the strategy, the ultimate objective is to entice younger users to Marketplace in an effort to compete with TikTok.
Marketplace is one of the few remaining Facebook features that appeal to younger users.
The new partnership also broadens the company’s revenue streams even though DoorDash is better recognized as an online food ordering and delivery service.
Additionally, it will provide the platform an advantage over many of the top food delivery applications that are currently available.
More significantly, it will lessen its reliance on food deliveries. The firm began grocery delivery during the pandemic, and the new partnership with Meta also gives DoorDash access to new markets.
