1) What is a Dasher?

DoorDash food delivery drivers are called Dashers. They use the DoorDash app as independent contractors to pick up users’ take-out orders from restaurants and deliver them to the given address by the following turn-by-turn directions from the in-app navigation.

2) How do DoorDash delivery drivers book deliveries?

Dashers can open the app and click on enable requests whenever they would like. Depending on their locations they receive requests within the area which they can review before deciding to accept. Once accepted, the Dasher drivers to the restaurant pick up the order and then deliver it as quickly as possible to the customer’s address.

3) How much do DoorDash delivery drivers earn?

Since DoorDash delivery drivers are freelance employers they do not earn a standard fixed wage. Instead, they earn a base fee on every delivery they accept and complete. The base pay includes factors such as type of order, distance, location, etc. The more deliveries a Dasher completes the more they earn. Plus they get to keep 100% of all tips received.

4) How do DoorDash delivery drivers know how much they are earning?

Dashers can track how much they earn in a few hours or a day from the app itself. This tracker can help them plan their weekly earnings and improve the number of deliveries they make.

5) When do delivery drivers receive their pay?

DoorDash directly deposits a Dasher's earnings and tips at the end of every week. If needed Dashers can also choose the Instant CashOut option to withdraw from their earnings up to five times a day before the end of the week.

6) What does a DoorDash delivery driver need?

Dashers do not need any big requirements or specific experience. All they need is to be old enough to legally work, which is at least 18, and have immediate access to a vehicle and license and appropriate insurance to go along with that vehicle.

7) What type of vehicle should DoorDash delivery drivers have?

Dashers can choose to make deliveries on any type of personal vehicle they want. They can buckle up in their CAR and listen to an interesting podcast or play some tunes while making deliveries. Or they can skip the hassle of parking and simply hop on their motorized SCOOTER. If Dashers want to be in shape while they work they can grab their Bike instead.

8) How do Dashers pay for the customer’s order?

When Dasher's accounts are activated they receive an activation kit which includes a Red Card or a Company Card which they can use to pay for customer’s orders. They also receive an insulated bag or a ‘hot bag’ to keep the food fresh and safe, and a manual.

9) How do I sign up?

The signing-up process could not be easier. All you have to do is log on to the DoorDash website and click on ‘Become a Dasher’. Then you fill in the necessary personal information, submit the required documents and finally consent to a quick background check. Within a week you should be notified about your activated account and you can Dash your way through deliveries as soon as possible.

10) Why should I become a DoorDash delivery driver?

DoorDash food delivery drivers enjoy the opportunity of being their own boss. They decide when to work, where to work, how long to work, how much to earn. They can work on weekdays and take weekends off or work only on weekends if they prefer. They have the luxury of flexible hours and adjustable shifts.
