In most cities, both the referring Dasher and the referred Dasher can earn referral bonuses. Please note, bonus referral amounts vary by location and can change based on current market conditions. The changes are not retroactively applied and the referral bonus amount is determined at the time of signup on our landing page. New Dashers must include the referral information when signing up.

Referral bonuses are automatically added to your weekly pay once your referred friend completes the required number of deliveries within 30 days of beginning signup. See the earnings tab in the Dasher app for payment details.

How to Refer Your Friends!

In-app Referral Options

  • Dashers can refer via SMS, email, Facebook, Twitter, and Facebook Messenger from within the iOS or Android Dasher apps.
  • For example, if you click SMS invites, you can send a text message referral invite. If you click the envelope, you can send an email referral invite. Once your friend clicks the referral link in the invitation they’re routed to the application screen with your referral information already entered.

Signup Page Referral Process

  • Refer friends by sending them the Dasher signup page: https://www.doordash.com/dasher/apply/. To receive the referral bonus, remind your referral to enter your phone number on the signup page in the "Referrer Phone #" field.
