Dasher Pay

DoorDash orders:

Inner Loop, Uptown/Villages, Memorial, Katy and Sugar Land: $4.50 per delivery and 100% of any gratuity paid by the customer

The Woodlands, Cypress, Spring, Champions and Kingwood: $5 per delivery and 100% of any gratuity paid by the customer

DoorDash Drive orders: 

Standard delivery pay above  ($4.50 or $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 standard delivery pay + tip are less than the guaranteed minimum earning, DoorDash will pay extra to make up the difference. Here are two examples with $5 standard delivery pay:

  • 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:

  • $10 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery under $50 estimated value
  • $12 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery between $50 and $100 estimated value
  • $15 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery between $100 and $200 estimated value
  • $20 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery between $200 and $300 estimated value
  • $25 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery between $300 and $500 estimated value
  • $30 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery over $500 estimated value

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.
