100% of tips + pay boost + minimum $1 delivery pay
The pay boost amount will vary based on a variety of factors, including our best estimate for the complexity of the order.
The pay model is designed to make delivery pay more fair, more transparent, and more consistent. Check your email or the FAQ for more info.
DoorDash Drive orders:
$6 per delivery and 100% of tip paid to DoorDash by the customer or merchant*
*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 $6 + 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 $6 per delivery rate. I make $26 on this order.
- Ex 2: $20 guaranteed minimum earning on an order. I am given no tip; DoorDash pays the $6 per delivery rate, plus an additional $14 shown as “Extra pay.” I make $20 on this order.
DoorDash Drive guaranteed minimum earning:
- $15 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery for orders between $101-$500
- $20 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery for orders between $501-$1,000
- $30 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery for orders over $1,001 estimated value
*$8 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery for orders between $0-$50, $10 guaranteed minimum earning per delivery for orders between $50-100
DoorDash Drive Tip Policy:
Customers will now only tip in advance, rather than upon delivery. You’ll still get 100% of tips received by DoorDash from the merchant or the customer, but you will no longer need to present a paper receipt to your customer. Because tipping will now only be done in advance, we will no longer accept tips provided after the delivery via paper receipt.
**PLEASE NOTE - SOME STORES HAVE INDIVIDUAL DASHER PAY THAT MAY NOT BE THE SAME AS THE PAY BUCKETS ABOVE**
For more information on DoorDash Drive, please see this page.
The normal conditions for incentives to be paid out are:
- Made less than the specified amount, inclusive of tips
- Accept 75%+ orders assigned
- Hang out near hotspots
- Deliver on-time consistently
- Drive, bike, or scooter
Guaranteed minimum pay is pro-rated based on the hours scheduled, on the road, and not on pause.
