Referrals

  • Know someone who could be a great dasher? Dashers earn extra money for every Dasher referred, so send in-app invites to your friends and have them apply! See the app for full details.

  • We have received reports of fraudulent online postings advertising sign-up and referral bonuses of up to $700. These postings are incorrect and should NOT be construed as official policy from DoorDash. The DoorDash driver iOS and Android applications are the source of truth. You can also use this website as a reference for referral bonuses.

Dasher Pay

Delivery pay is calculated as $1 + 100% of tip + pay boost. The pay boost amount will vary based on a variety of factors including the complexity of the order, distance to the restaurant, and orders you place yourself. Through our tests, we found that most Dashers will earn more money on average with this new model. For more information regarding the New Dasher Pay Model, please visit our Dasher Pay Model FAQs page.

DoorDash Drive:

Earnings are $5 per delivery and 100% of tip paid to DoorDash by the customer or merchant*

*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 $6 per delivery rate. I make $26 on this order.

  • Ex 2: $20 guaranteed minimum earning on an order. I am given no tip; DoorDash pays the $6 per delivery rate, plus an additional $14 shown as β€œExtra 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 Tip Policy:

Customers will now only tip in advance, rather than upon delivery. You’ll still get 100% of tips received by DoorDash from the merchant or the customer, but you will no longer need to present a paper receipt to your customer. Because tipping will now only be done in advance, we will no longer accept tips provided after the delivery via paper receipt.

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