Welcome to DoorDash Providence.

For the latest news and updates, see the announcements section of your Dasher app.  

Starting Points

Dashers sign up to dash in a specific starting point. Sometimes, dashers may be moved to neighboring starting points if additional dashers are needed there. 

Within a starting point we have set up various hotspots. Hotspots are located on where DoorDash expects orders to be placed. Dashers are more likely to receive an order if they are closer to the restaurant from which a customer orders. The app will direct you to the closest hotspot between orders.

Delivery 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. Check your email or the FAQ for more info.
