The holiday season is upon us, and so is the desire for a little extra cheer in our pockets. Recently, Taylor Bennett, Global Head of Public Affairs for DoorDash and Denis Boismier, a Dasher in Gibraltar, Michigan conducted a satellite media tour to talk about the unique earning opportunities and flexibility that come with being a dasher with Doordash.

Millions of people turn to DoorDash to reach their financial goals by earing extra money on their own terms

Dashing with Doordash gives people the ability to go out and earn money in a way that fits their schedule. 

● 13M people have dashed in past decade and earned a total of $35B

● 72% spend less than 4 hours per week and 90% of Dashers spend less than 10 hours a week on delivery

78% of Dashers report being able to create their own schedule as the main reason they choose to dash, 64% cite supplemental income whenever they need 

Whether it’s saving up for the holidays, trying to pay off student loans or just wanting some additional financial security, dashing gives people the ability to go out and earn money in a way that fits their schedule – they can dash as often or as little as they’d like. 

With more than 22 new features this year aimed at making the dashing experience even better, there’s never been a better time to dash. 

With the introduction of Earn by Time, Post-Checkout Tipping, Dash Along the Way, and a new integration with GasBuddy, Dashers have more flexibility than ever when it comes to how they earn and more opportunities than ever to maximize their earnings potential. 

Safety is a top priority for DoorDash – that’s why the app has launched more than fifteen new features in the last year alone, including SafeDash Location Sharing, Apple CarPlay and SafeChat+. Here are some of the new features available to Dashers

Flexibility and Choice

In June, Doordash made their biggest ever update to the way Dashers earn on DoorDash, providing unprecedented flexibility and choice by giving Dashers two ways to earn: Earn by Time, and Earn Per Offer:

Earn by Time is an all new, industry-leading earnings mode that gives Dashers the choice to earn a guaranteed hourly minimum rate for time spent on a delivery – from the moment they hit accept until the order is dropped off – plus tips.

● Earn Per Offer is the same earning mode that Dashers have come to know and love. When a Dasher sees an offer in the Dasher app, it shows them a guaranteed minimum payout for that offer – they’ll always earn at least that amount, and never less 

Earnings Potential

Post Checkout Tipping: Customers have a variety of preferences when it comes to tipping, so earlier this year Doordash added the ability for customers to tip at any point after checkout for up to 30 days after delivery – directly in the Dasher app.

● Dash Along the Way: Regardless of how they choose to earn, Dashers value efficiency and want to maximize their earnings. Dash Along the Way lets Dashers select their preferred starting zone and receive offers that will take them directly there, allowing them to earn on the way and reduce downtime.

● GasBuddy Integration: A new integration with GasBuddy allows Dashers to find the most affordable gas in their area and navigate to it – directly in the Dasher app. 

Platform Accessibility

● In-app Chat translation: To improve and streamline communication between Spanish-speaking Dashers and English-speaking customers, messages will now be automatically translated. 54 major languages will be supported.

Spanish Language Chatbot: Doordash’s in-app Dasher support chatbot is an important resource for Dashers looking for real-time support and guidance while dashing. The chatbot is now available in Spanish, and if a Dasher needs support beyond the chatbot, they’ll automatically be transferred to a Spanish-speaking agent.

Dasher App Language Setting: Many Spanish-speakers set their device’s language to English to help them practice, but want their core apps in their native language to avoid mistakes. Doordash introduced a new feature that allows Dashers to set the Dasher app language to Spanish – even if their device’s language setting is English. 

  Making Dashing Even Safer SafeDash Check-In: If Doordash detects that a dash is taking longer than expected, they’ll automatically check in to see if the Dashers is okay. If they take a long time to respond or feel unsafe, an ADT safety agent will call them and escalate to 911 if necessary.● Real-Time Safety Alerts: In the event of an emergency – like a natural disaster – Doordash can quickly alert Dashers, customers and merchants about the incident and suspend operations in the area.● SafeDash Location Sharing: Dashers can share their location with up to 5 trusted contacts directly in the Dasher app. Those trusted contacts can see if the Dasher is on a delivery or if emergency assistance has been requested.● Apple CarPlay Integration: With Apple CarPlay, drivers can sync their iPhone’s interface with their car’s built-in entertainment and information systems, helping drivers use key apps while reducing phone interactions.To learn more visit: dasher.doordash.com Taylor BennettGlobal Head of Public Affairs for DoorDashWith more than two decades of experience, Taylor has spent his career crafting communications and public affairs campaigns for some of the biggest and best brands, from global corporations to high-growth unicorn startups.
