How much can I earn?
You’ll always earn Base Pay for any delivery. Base Pay is calculated based on the estimated time, distance, and desirability of the order.
Customers using DoorDash can tip you anytime you choose to accept a delivery — and most deliveries include a tip. You’ll always receive 100% of the customer tips received by DoorDash.
Promotions like Peak Pay and Challenges help you earn more per delivery when it’s busy. Challenges let you earn extra money for completing a certain number of deliveries in a set amount of time.
After your first dash, we'll send you a Dasher activation kit that contains items like a food warming bag, Red Card, hand sanitizer, and mask for Dasher safety.
Since no two people have the same taste in gear, there’s an online store so you can get the gear and equipment you want.
Dashers must be 18 years or older
Any car, scooter, or bicycle (in select cities)
Consent to a background check, two pieces of government ID, a full-class driver’s license (if applicable)

You're the boss. As an independent contractor, you have the freedom to drive whenever you want, wherever you want.
You can dash whenever you want, meaning you are in control of how many hours you want to dash per day or per week -- and you can dash practically anywhere. It's a great alternative to seasonal, temporary, and part-time work.
Nope! You don't need any prior work experience. But if you do have previous experience in the rideshare, food, or courier service industries, delivering with DoorDash is a great way to earn money.
We welcome drivers and bikers from other gig economy or commercial services such as UberEats, Postmates, Lyft, Caviar, Eat24, Google Express, GrubHub, AmazonFresh, Instacart, Amazon, Uber, Waitr, and Bite Squad. Dashers come from all backgrounds and industries, and include catering drivers, truck drivers, and taxi drivers.
With delivery, there are two big differences:
You don't have passengers in your car
You can use any mode of transportation: your car (two doors is fine), bicycle, or motorcycle
It’s also a bit more active than ridesharing, as you get in/out of your car/bike to pick up and deliver the food.
Once you receive a delivery opportunity, you'll see where it is and what you'll make, and can choose to accept or reject it. Once you accept, there are generally three steps, all of which are clearly outlined in the Driver app:
Drive to the restaurant
Pick up the food
Drive to the customer to drop off the food
