Dasher Pay

DoorDash orders:
Starting Point: $6 per delivery and 100% of any gratuity paid by the customer

DoorDash Drive orders:

A guaranteed minimum earning is displayed upfront for every Drive order. Dashers will continue to earn standard starting point base pay + 100% of tips. If the base delivery pay + tip falls below the minimum offered, DoorDash will pay extra to fill the difference. You may make more than the minimum offered if a customer provides a large enough tip. Let’s look at two examples:

  • Ex 1: $15 minimum guaranteed on an order. I am given a $20 tip; DoorDash pays the $6 standard starting point base rate. I make $26 on this order.
  • Ex 2: $20 minimum guaranteed on an order. I am given no tip; DoorDash pays the $6 standard starting point base rate, plus an additional $14 shown as “Extra pay.” I make $20 on this order.

DoorDash Drive minimum guarantees:

  • $15 per delivery for orders between $100-$500 estimated value
  • $20 per delivery for orders between $501-$1,000 estimated value
  • $30 per delivery for orders over $1,001 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**
