According to Uber, drivers can earn up to $30 a day. Delivery service DoorDash, one of the world’s largest, says its drivers can get at least $25 a day.
However, those numbers are not consistent with what the drivers and deliveries say they can earn. In fact, it is much less. And that, without taking into account the costs.
this is where it comes in David Pickerella former Uber operations manager between 2015 and 2017 who created a free application that analyzes and exposes information that transportation platforms (such as Uber) and delivery platforms have, but that are not at a glance.
“The information is there, the problem is that we have not empowered people. Why wouldn’t we tell drivers all this to help them?” Pickerell told the New York Times.
Basically, the application allows providers of these services better organize the available information and make more convenient decisions for your finances.
For example, one of the app’s most popular features allows Door-Dash drivers to learn how much they will receive as a tip for each delivery before accepting it.
With the exception of New York (a city in which apps are required to show the tip in advance), Door-Dash hides that value from delivery, even though most consumers upload the amount of the tip in the app. when ordering.
The app created by former Uber operations manager also allows drivers to set parameters to use multiple appsautomatically discard orders that are not profitable, mark rude consumers and set up locations they don’t want to go to, like overly complicated apartment complexes or restaurants that keep delivery guys waiting too long.
The application analyzes and exposes information from apps such as Door-Dash, Uber, Instacart, Grubhub, Lyft, Caviar, Eaze, Postmates, Amazon Flex, Walmart-Spark and Shipt, among others, to the view of delivery people and drivers.
Unfair practices and low wages
The popularity of “Para” grows notably in the United States because the “war” for deliveries increases and, at the same time, it is difficult to find delivery men because for many it is no longer profitable.
For many restaurants, in addition, the models based on home deliveries through these applications have become a problem due to the high commissions. In the pandemic they had no alternative, but now the reality is different.
“Stop” was not well received by the companies behind the delivery apps, such as Door-Dash, which demanded that the firm stop operating on the grounds that it was illegal, that it trafficked data and that it had “destabilized” the platform.
DoorDash says the app doesn’t display tip amounts up front to prevent dashers from fighting over just those deliveries and because “It affects the customer experience.”
