Our parking lot is undergoing construction, so you must park in the lot at the back of the building and come around to our entrance in the front. On arrival by car, follow the side street in between our building and the Publix parking garage around to the back parking lot - park there. You must then walk around to the front of the building and follow the walkway under the scaffolding until you see suite #106. Enter the vestibule and we are the door on the right.

Dasher Pay
DoorDash orders

Delivery pay is now 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.

DoorDash Drive orders:

$4 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 $4 + 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 $4 per delivery rate. I make $24 on this order.
  • Ex 2: $20 guaranteed minimum earning on an order. I am given no tip; DoorDash pays the $4 per delivery rate, plus an additional $16 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.
