A substitution occurs when a Dasher replaces an item that is out of stock with a similar item that has been approved by the customer.
If a customer has already approved a substitution, their approved substitution will appear when you tap "Item unavailable."
If a customer has not pre-approved their substitutions, suggesting them is simple. A Dasher can:
Tap "Item unavailable."
Tap "Text customer" to suggest a substitute — customers appreciate it when you provide a few different options. You also have the option to call the customer directly.
If the customer responds and confirms that they would like one of the options, you can simply proceed with adding the substitute. If the customer does not respond, or does not want any of the options provided, you can tap Issue refund.
