Regular DoorDash orders:
Dashers are paid per order. Pay can vary based on the time, distance, and complexity of an order. For instance, a 5 mile order will usually pay more than a 2 mile order. We do our best to ensure that dashers are paid fairly. For more details, please visit our New Dasher Pay Model FAQs page. For questions on peak pay promotions see here.
Special DoorDash Drive orders:
These are our MOST important orders that we offer to top dashers and we GUARANTEE a certain MINIMUM amount per order. If $5.50 (or $6 in Downtown DC) per delivery + 100% of tip paid by the customer is less than that, then we make up the difference!
DoorDash Drive orders are traditionally larger and may require more time to complete (find out more details on DoorDash Drive here). Here are two examples:
- Ex 1: $15 guaranteed minimum earning on an order. I am given a $20 tip; DoorDash still pays the $5.50 per delivery rate. I make $25.50 on this order.
- Ex 2: $20 guaranteed minimum earning on an order. I am given no tip; DoorDash pays the $5.50 per delivery rate, plus an additional $14.50 shown as “Extra pay.” I make $20 on this order.
DoorDash Drive receipts:
At select Drive merchants, Dashers will be able to collect a paper receipt at pickup, get that receipt signed by the customer and submit a photo of the signed receipt at drop off. If a customer adds a tip when signing the receipt, that tip will be added to your pay. Pro Tip: most restaurants have No Tip Solicitation Policy for catering orders. They do not want drivers to ask for a tip when the receipt is being signed. Pro Tip: some customers submit their tip when they place the order. When that happens, your tip will already be in your app. All receipts and tips will be reviewed by DoorDash and the merchant. Any fraudulent tip activity will result in immediate deactivation and legal action.
