DoorDash CEO Twitter:
Drivers get paid a minimum of $5 per delivery. Here is what happens to the tips:
Customer tips $0, Doordash pays the driver $5, driver gets $5.
Customer tips $2, Doordash pays the driver $3, driver gets $5.
Customer tips $4, Doordash pays the driver, $1, driver gets $5.
Customer tips $10, Doordash pays the driver $1, driver gets $11.
If you get in touch with Doordash support, they will send you a message like this:
Still don't get it?
Need to see it to believe it?
Do not be fooled. This is only a play on words. While the tip may technically be going to the driver, it is only replacing the normal delivery pay. Your tip saves doordash money, and it is not increasing the drivers pay. Please tip in cash, if available.
