Customer FAQ



How does Santa Cruz Deliveries work?

You can use the Santa Cruz Delivery mobile (iOS and Android) or web app to request a delivery from any merchant in your city. Once you've located the restaurant or store you'd like to order from, add the items you want to your cart, input your payment and contact info, and hit "Pay". If the merchant’s menu or catalog isn’t available in the SCD app, you can always use the "Custom Order" button which will allow you to create a custom order. Just make sure your instructions are as specific as possible so your delivery Agent will know exactly what to get. For instance, “One Tri-tip Sandwich with no Gorgonzola Cheese, please.”


Can I schedule my delivery in advance?


Yes! You are able to schedule a delivery for a later date or time.

On the checkout screen, tap on the “Schedule Later” section to select when you would like your order delivered. You can choose from 30 minutes time slots up to 30 days in advance.

After scheduling your delivery you’ll receive a confirmation email with the scheduled date and time. If for some reason the date or time is incorrect, or if your plans have changed, you can cancel your delivery at no cost to you as long as the delivery is not in progress.

Once delivery is scheduled, the time and date cannot be updated. You will need to cancel and reschedule.

Is your favorite restaurant currently closed? No problem, just search for them on the app and you’ll be able to schedule your delivery for when they open, or a later date and time.

From here select the items you want and you’ll go through the same process detailed above to schedule your delivery.


How do I get help with an order or charge?


If you have a question about an active or recent order (including charges), contact us through our “chat Support” for the faster service.

Simply tap the three lines in the top-left corner of the SCD app, click “orders” then click on the order you want help with and at the bottom-right you will see a red chat icon.

On the web, open up your Order History, select the order you need help with and click the blue chat icon.

In order to properly address your issue, and do any necessary follow-up with the merchant and/or Santa Cruz Deliveries, we will need to be notified within 10 Minutes of the completion of your delivery. Issues submitted within the 10 Minutes will be addressed first.

Can a Delivery Agent pick up from multiple locations?
