SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — DoorDash is launching lower-priced delivery options for U.S. restaurants, responding to criticism that the commissions it charges are too high for the beleaguered industry.

The San Francisco-based delivery company says it will offer a new basic plan which will charge restaurants 15% per order for delivery, or around half the cost of previous plans.

Restaurants can pay commissions of 25% or 30% for other plans if they want more visibility in DoorDash’s app or lower customer delivery fees.

DoorDash says it developed the plan over the last year after restaurants asked for more options.
