The title compound, C15H15NO3, was prepared by stirring benzoyl chloride with 3,5-dimeth­oxy­aniline in dioxane at ambient temperature. The dimeth­oxy­phen­yl–amide segment of the mol­ecule is almost planar, with a C—N—C=O torsion angle of −4.1 (4)°. The two benzene rings are inclined at an angle of 76.66 (13)°. In the crystal, inter­molecular N—H⋯O inter­actions generate centrosymmetric dimers..
