The new partnership marks the appearance of a national consumer electronics retailer on the local commerce platform, DoorDash said in a Wednesday (Nov. 29) press release.
“This partnership provides consumers access to Best Buy’s diverse selection of specialty consumer electronics with the speed and convenience of DoorDash,” Fuad Hannon, vice president of new verticals at DoorDash, said in the release.
Consumers can shop for thousands of products from Best Buy on the DoorDash marketplace app or website and have them delivered to their homes in less than an hour, on average, according to the press release.
The consumer electronics retailer’s products will also be available through DashPass, DoorDash’s membership program that offers a $0 delivery fee on eligible orders that meet minimum subtotal amounts, the release said.
The products will be delivered from Best Buy locations nationwide, per the release.
“With the holiday season around the corner, this is a valuable occasion for consumers to shop for tech gifts for everyone on their list…,” Hannon said in the release.
The addition of the first national electronics retailer to the DoorDash marketplace builds on the delivery firm’s expansion into new categories beyond restaurants.
DoorDash announced Nov. 16 that it is making beer, wine and spirits delivery available to more locations. The company is one of the aggregators expanding their offering of alcohol delivery while adhering to regulations that vary from market to market.
DoorDash said Nov. 8 it now enables customers to use their health savings accounts (HSAs) and flexible spending accounts (FSAs) to pay for eligible items at select merchants.
“As part of our mission to empower local economies, we’re always working to broaden access for consumers in ways that break down barriers,” Hannon said at the time.
During the company’s most recent earnings call, held Nov. 1, DoorDash CEO Tony Xu said the firm’s existing platform engagement from the restaurant business is making it easier to acquire new customers.
