1) What is a day of work like for a Dasher?
Dashers are not employees but independent contractors that simply use the Doordash app to make their food deliveries. Dashers just need to open the Doordash drivers’ app whenever they would like and enable food delivery requests. When a request comes in they have a few seconds to review the details and according to their own preference they can accept or decline. If accepted, they simply use the in-app navigation system to drive to the restaurant, pick up the assigned take-out order, and then drive to the customer’s address mentioned on the order to deliver.
2) What do I need to become a Dasher?
To become a Dasher all candidates need is to be at least 18 years old and have immediate access to their own vehicle. Dashers also need to make sure they have a valid and recognized driver’s license with the appropriate insurance for their vehicle.
3) What type of vehicle do Dashers use?
Dashers are free to choose any type of vehicle they are comfortable with. They can drive around in their CAR or ride on their motorized SCOOTER. If they would like to stay fit and active then they can grab their BIKE instead and peddle their way to completing deliveries.
4) How do Dashers earn?
Since Dashers are not employees they do not earn a fixed wage. Instead, they earn a base fee on every order they accept and deliver. This base fee varies according to each order and includes a pick-up and drop-off fee, distance, location, type of order, etc. The more deliveries a Dasher completes the more they can earn while also keeping 100% of all tips. Dashers can track their earnings hourly or daily using the app itself.
5) When do Dashers receive their earnings?
Doordash deposits all Dashers' earnings and tips directly into their bank accounts at the end of every week. If Dashers need to, they can withdraw from their weekly earnings up to five times a day using the Instant CashOut feature.
6) Any tips on how to be a Dasher?
Dashers have been suggested to mount a phone stand on their vehicle for convenience and to also carry a few extra paper bags just to make sure the orders remain safe and fresh.
Dashers can maximize the number of orders they make by being in areas where a few close-by restaurants use the Doordash delivery service. Delivering during peak hours such as lunch and dinner can also help increase a Dashers' daily deliveries. Ensuring that deliveries are made as quickly as possible can help increase a Dasher’s tips.
7) How do I sign up to become a Dasher?
Candidates simply need to log on to the Doordash website or download the Doordash app and click on ‘Become a Dasher’. The application is a standard form that requires your personal information, vehicle details, and any other documents.

Dashers are also sent an activation kit which includes a manual, an insulated bag to store the food, and a Red Card or a company card.

They can also decide when to take the day off. Being a part of the Doordash food delivery drivers’ team allows you to earn quick pay according to your own schedule, on your own time.
