Can DoorDash Deliver Walmart Prescriptions?
Despite plenty of misinformation circulating online, DoorDash no longer offers delivery services from Walmart as of 2023. In fact, the two companies ended their working relationship officially back in September 2022.
Walmart Pharmacy Curbside Pickup
If you don’t want to bother with signing up for the Walmart Mail-Order Pharmacy, but you still want to streamline your pharmacy experience, you have options!
Starting in 2021, Walmart introduced a special curbside pickup service for Walmart Pharmacy customers who use the Walmart app.
How To Use Walmart Rx Pickup
To take advantage of curbside pickup when picking up your prescriptions, simply open up the Walmart app, click “Services,” then tap “Pharmacy.” Next, tap “Refill Rx” and choose the prescriptions you need refilled. Next, select “Curbside pickup.”
After you confirm your order, you will receive a notification on your phone when your order is ready for pickup. The Walmart app will provide you with detailed pickup instructions, which will instruct you to head to Walmart and park in the Rx Pickup area (separate from the grocery pickup area). Finally, you will need to use your phone to give the pharmacy a call and let them know you’ve arrived.
Next, a pharmacy worker will bring your prescriptions out to you, and you can pay directly from your phone. If you would rather not pay in the app, you can give the pharmacy worker your credit or debit card and they will process your payment for you. Unfortunately, Walmart does not accept cash payment for any of its curbside pickup services.
Please be aware that Walmart Pharmacy Curbside pickup can only be used to refill prescriptions you’ve already had filled at Walmart previously. You must be a Walmart app user with a Walmart account to take advantage of this service.

Can a Walmart Pharmacy transfer prescriptions to another Walmart?
Yes. If you want your prescription sent to another Walmart location, contact the pharmacy at the location where you want to pick up your prescription and ask them to contact the pharmacy that has your prescription to have it transferred.
Can another person mail your prescription to you?
Yes. In most cases, someone else can pick up your prescription for you and then mail it to you where you need it. However, it’s up to the pharmacist’s discretion whether or not to hand over your prescription to someone who is not you.
Is it right to tip DoorDash from Walmart?
Yes. Tipping is proper and expected everytime a DoorDash delivery worker delivers something to you. However, DoorDash no longer delivers for Walmart as of 2023.
