The City of Markham is collaborating with Ritual and DoorDash to provide locally owned and operated small businesses with an easy way to conduct online sales through their own websites and social media and to enable contactless ordering at brick-and-mortar stores.

Markham businesses can sign up for the Open for Business program and use Ritual ONE – the commission-free digital ordering platform – to receive:

  • Waived set-up fees (normally $99/location)
  • Waived processing fees for 2020 (normally 2.8% + $0.15/transaction)
  • Waived subscription fees for 2020 (normally $49/month/location)
  • Use of DoorDash Drive for flat fee delivery of Ritual ONE orders

Businesses that use DoorDash Drive to make at least one Ritual ONE delivery by December 31, 2020 will have their Ritual ONE subscription fees waived through 2021.

While Ritual is most strongly associated with food services, Open for Business is available to provide any locally owned and operated business in Markham with commission-free pick-up and delivery during these challenging and unprecedented times.
