DoorDash is a technology company that connects customers with local businesses. Customers order meals and other items from their favorite local merchants and Dashers deliver them directly to their doors. Dashers are third-party contractors who deliver for merchants to customers. *Dashers are paid on a per delivery basis, not per hour.
Delivery drivers sign up to the DoorDash service and create a DoorDash drivers’ account on the DoorDash app. These delivery drivers, who are also called Dashers, are freelance independent contractors who use the app to deliver users’ take-out meals from local restaurants.
DoorDash drivers can work whenever they want. Delivery drivers at DoorDash can set up their own schedules according to their own convenience. All they have to do is enter their preferred work hours and time slot into the DoorDash app. They also need to enter their desired location where they would like to make deliveries. Dashers can decide to work part-time hours or full-time hours. A DoorDash food delivery driver job is the perfect gig to earn while still having a flexible and adjustable schedule.
To receive a delivery request, DoorDash food delivery drivers must simply click on ‘Dash Now’ when they are in the right location at the right time. Delivery drivers then go to the location of the restaurant mentioned, pick up the order and then deliver it to the given address. The DoorDash app has a navigation feature that lets drivers know the best routes and how to avoid traffic.
DoorDash delivery drivers can decide for themselves how many deliveries to make in a day. When a Dasher receives an order request, they can review details like the type of order, number of items, distance, location, etc. Based on these details they can decide to accept or decline.
