We’re excited to expand the test of an updated pay model to Dashers in the coming weeks. The new approach is designed to make delivery pay more fair, more transparent, and more consistent. As we roll this new model out, the current pay model will still be in effect for many Dashers ($5 per delivery + 100% of customer tips). Check your email or the FAQ for more info.
DoorDash Drive 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:
- $10 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery under $150 estimated value
- $15 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery between $150 and $300 estimated value
- $20 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery between $300 and $500 estimated value
- $25 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**

Merchants can now deliver alcohol through DoorDash in the Los Angeles market! Please take a few moments to look through the alcohol delivery page to make sure you fully understand the process.
At times, you may get orders containing alcoholic beverages. The following information is intended to help you lawfully deliver alcohol. Please note that you could be held liable if you deliver alcohol to a minor or someone who is visibly intoxicated, so it's important that you follow this process fully to protect yourself and the customer.
I. AGE AND ID VERIFICATION
When an order contains alcohol, the law requires you to verify the age of the customer before you hand over the alcohol. You can only deliver alcohol if the customer is 21 years of age or older.
To verify age, ask the customer to see a valid ID. Check every customer’s ID every time, even if the customer clearly appears to be over 21. A valid ID must include a photograph and date of birth. For example, acceptable forms of ID may include:
A valid driver's license issued by federal, state, county, or municipal government.
A valid passport.
An identification card issued by the Armed Forces of the United States that contains the name, date of birth, description, and picture of the person.
Next, make sure the ID is not invalid or fake:
- Check the expiration date. Do not accept an ID that is expired.
- Ask to remove the ID from the wallet.
- Compare the customer at the door to the photo in the ID. Examine facial features: are the height, eye shape, ear and nose shape or placement similar? Ignore weight, hair and makeup as these may change.
- Feel the edges of the ID - a legitimate ID will have smooth, uniform edges. A fake ID may have rougher edges and perhaps may be coming apart.
- Look for glue lines or bumpy or uneven surfaces. A real ID’s surface should be consistent.
II. CHECK FOR INTOXICATION
Do not deliver alcohol if the customer is visibly intoxicated. The dictionary defines intoxication as the condition of being drunk.
Here are some steps to help determine if a person is intoxicated.
- Physical Signs of Intoxication
- Look for glassy or bloodshot eyes. Also look for droopy eyes or if someone clearly has difficulty keeping their eyes open.
- Notice how the person smells. If you notice that the person’s breath or clothes smell of alcohol, this may be an effective tell-tale sign of intoxication.
- Watch for impaired motor function. Intoxicated people can’t perform normal tasks in the same way they would if they were sober. If someone is having trouble walking in a straight line or is fumbling with objects, this may be a sign that they are intoxicated.
Signs of Behavioral Intoxication
- Look for a person’s inhibitions becoming lowered. Some people who are visibly intoxicated exhibit louder behavior than usual or may make inappropriate comments.
- Watch out for a person that is slurring their speech.
- Notice if someone is speaking slower or faster than usual.
III. RESTRICTED LOCATIONS
Do NOT, under any circumstances, deliver alcohol to the following locations:
- Public or private school (K-12) (e.g. an elementary school);
- College campus (e.g. a frat house);
- Prison, reformatory, veterans’ home, or state capitol grounds;
- Locker or similar package storage service (e.g. a storage facility); or
- Business that sells alcohol (e.g. liquor store).
Lastly, use your judgment. If you have any doubts about the ID, the customer, or encounter a situation in which it does not seem reasonable to deliver alcohol (e.g. there is a party with minors present), do not complete delivery and contact support.
Please see the Deactivation Policy here for more information. Dashers who fall below the listed thresholds may be subject to deactivation.
