If you’re looking for a side gig, DoorDash — like Amazon Flex, Postmates and Deliv — pays people to make local deliveries in their own car. With DoorDash, the goods are restaurant orders. Same deal with UberEats, advertised below.
DoorDash is currently available in the US and Canada, in the following areas: Atlanta, Bellevue / Seattle, Boston, Brooklyn, Charlotte, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, SF East Bay Area, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, LA Valley, Manhattan, Minneapolis, Orange County, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose / Silicon Valley, Toronto, Washington DC and Vancouver.
How It Works
DoorDash is an on-demand delivery service that lets people order food from 54,000+ restaurants across the US and Canada. Everything’s done by app. Part-time Drivers log onto the app when they’re ready to work, accept the orders they want and deliver the eats.
Pay varies by city and you keep all tips. You can find more on city rates here. Payment is weekly by direct deposit to your bank account.
DoorDash ads say you can make up to $25/hr. But that appears to be more likely in higher-paying areas like San Francisco, and whether you’re delivering during peak times. (The average pay seems to be around $12/hr.) It will also depend on how well your customers tip, and that depends, too, on where you’re delivering and who’s buying. For a rough idea on tip rates by state (including DC), see this study. (HI and DC are the worst, MS, IA, KY, AK, IN, DE, WV, AZ, ID the best.)
As with all delivery jobs, you’ll also need to subtract gas and car maintenance from your pay. DoorDash provides insurance to Drivers (for damage to other vehicles), which is unusual. As with other delivery companies, you’ll be an independent contractor (no taxes withheld) rather than an employee.
What You’ll Need
— an iOS or Android smartphone
— a vehicle (any will do)
— pass a criminal background check
— be at least 18
— have a clean driving record
