1: Schedule your shifts ahead of time so you can be guaranteed a driving spot during prime hours.
This is especially important if you live in a bigger city that has lots of dashers.
They only allow so many drivers at a time and the best hours tend to fill up fast only leaving the slow periods available.
2: Don’t be afraid to decline orders. Don’t waste time taking a $5 order for a 10 mile round trip.
Ideally stick to around .75-$1/mile (round trip) so a delivery going 3 miles one way (6 miles) should be at least $6 payment.
3: Make sure you have the insurance. It only cost us like an extra $15-$20/month for coverage.
4. A cheap phone holder for your car is a god send lol
