Dasher Pay

DoorDash orders: $5 per delivery and 100% of tip paid by the customer

DoorDash Drive (catering) orders:

$5 per delivery and 100% of tip paid by the customer*

*DoorDash Drive orders are traditionally larger and may require more time to complete (find out more details on DoorDash Drive here). Because of this, each DoorDash Drive order will have a guaranteed minimum earning based on the order value. If the $5 + tip are less than the guaranteed minimum earning, DoorDash will pay extra to make up the difference. Here are two examples:

  • Ex 1: $15 guaranteed minimum earning on an order. I am given a $20 tip; DoorDash still pays the $5 per delivery rate. I make $25 on this order.
  • Ex 2: $20 guaranteed minimum earning on an order. I am given no tip; DoorDash pays the $5 per delivery rate, plus an additional $15 shown as “Extra pay.” I make $20 on this order.

DoorDash Drive guaranteed minimum earning:

  • $15 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery for orders between $101-$500
  • $20 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery for orders between $501-$1,000
  • $30 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery for orders over $1,001 estimated value

*$8 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery for orders between $0-$50, $10 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery for orders between $50-100

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.

**PLEASE NOTE - SOME STORES HAVE INDIVIDUAL DASHER PAY THAT MAY NOT BE THE SAME AS THE PAY BUCKETS ABOVE**

For more information on DoorDash Drive, please see this page.

Peak Pay Earnings Bonus:

An earnings bonus of $2 per delivery will now be added to standard pay when completing deliveries between the peak hours of 5pm and 8pm in the Worthington/Clintonville areas.**  

For example, if a delivery is completed at 5:30pm, the Dasher will received $5 base pay, $2 bonus earnings, and 100% of tips (therefore $7 plus tips).

**Busy Pay deliveries completed in Worthington/Clintonville will also be subject to Peak Bonus between 5pm and 8pm.

Guaranteed Pay Bonus:

From 4/28-5/21 in the Whitehall/Reynoldsburg area, Dashers are guaranteed $11 per hour between 5pm - 8pm.**

**To qualify, Dashers must accept 3 out of every 4 deliveries per dash.
