How are Dashers paid?

DoorDashโ€™s pay model is designed to make pay for every delivery fair and consistent, while providing information about the delivery to you ahead of time. By making every delivery worth doing, our goal is to enable Dashers to complete more deliveries in less time. The information below relates to the standard Dasher Pay Model.  For more information about how Dasher Pay works when using DoorDash Drive, click here.

DoorDash will show you the guaranteed amount you'll earn for completing a delivery before you choose to accept or reject that order. The guaranteed amount is based on a variety of factors including the size of the order, whether you have to place the order in person, and the projected driving distance, traffic, parking, and wait time at the store.

For each delivery, you will always receive at least $1 from DoorDash plus 100% of the customer tip. Where that sum is less than the guaranteed amount, DoorDash will provide a pay boost to make sure you receive the guaranteed amount. Where that sum is more than the guaranteed amount, you pocket the extra amount.
