1) Who is a Dasher?

A Dasher is a freelance, independent contractor who uses the DoorDash app to pick up a customer’s take-out order from the local restaurant and deliver the order to the customer’s address

2) How does a DoorDash delivery driver book deliveries?

A Dasher just needs to open the app and click on “Dash Now” and they will receive delivery requests near their location. They can review the request before deciding to accept or decline. If accepted they just have to follow the turn-by-turn navigation route to the restaurant and then to the customer’s address.

3) How does a DoorDash delivery driver earn?

Dashers do not receive a fixed wage from DoorDash. Instead, Dashers receive a base pay for every delivery they complete. The base pay varies for each delivery and includes a pick-up and drop-off fee, location, distance. The more deliveries a Dasher completes, the more money they earn. Dashers also keep 100% of all tips earned.

4) Do DoorDash delivery drivers pay for the take-order?

No, Dashers do not pay for the take-out order themselves. Instead, they receive a Company Card which they use to pay for the take-out orders.

5) When do DoorDash delivery drivers receive their pay?

DoorDash directly deposits a driver’s earnings and tips to their bank account at the end of every week. A Dasher can also withdraw their earnings before the end of the week with a debit card using the ‘Instant Pay’ feature DoorDash offers.

6) What qualifications does a DoorDash delivery driver need?

A Dasher does not need any specific qualifications or prior experience. All a Dasher needs is to be at least 18 years old and have access to their own transportation. This transportation can be whatever a Dasher prefers. A Dasher can drive around in a CAR, or ride around on a motorized SCOOTER, or even pedal on a BIKE to complete their deliveries. All they need is to have a valid driver’s license and insurance. To ride a bike a Dasher must have an appropriate Government Issue ID.

7) How to apply to be a DoorDash delivery driver?

To be a Dasher all you have to do is log on to the DoorDash website or download the DoorDash app and click on “Become a Dasher”. Once you fill in all the necessary personal information and submit the required documents for your preferred vehicle, just consent to a quick background check and within a week you will receive a notification of an activated account.

DoorDash sends activated accounts an “activation kit” which contains a Company Card or a ‘Red Card’, an insulated or hot bag, and a manual.

8) Why should I be a DoorDash delivery driver?

DoorDash delivery drivers enjoy the freedom of being their own boss. They have the luxury to decide when they work, where they work, how long they work when they can take a day off when they can take a break. Dashers enjoy flexible hours and adjustable shifts.
