    When you use Postmates, 100% of the tip goes to the fleet.

    DoorDash will always pay $1 + 100% of the tip. If that doesn’t meet the minimum pay for the effort the dasher puts in for that order then DoorDash is covering the rest. It the example above DD is saying this order is at least worth $6.85. If DD’s $1 and the customers tip doesn’t meet or exceed $6.85 DD will cover the rest. Dashers like this model because it provided consistency that other platforms did not.

    It’s not much different than a restaurant that pools and divides the tips between who worked that day. I bet you didn’t know that some restaurants, the tip you leave for you waiter is divided between the staff. Same as Starbucks, that tip you put for your coffee is divided amongst who worked that day. The media is misinforming people which is a shame but hey. You shouldn’t believe everything you read online. Fool me once, right?

      If the order is worth $6.85 and i tip 7$ what will happen? Does the driver get $1 + $7?

      Yes, they made over the minimum (aka the guarantee). They will receive $8 instead of the $6.85

    The money that DoorDash “saved” actually gets used for that dasher that didn’t get a tip (covering the difference in someone else’s minimum)

      Tip your drivers and there won’t be a need to make sure every dasher is properly compensated

      And basically DoorDash is saying they don’t want to pay single penny to dasher..
