DoorDash announces new features for couriers, including “earn by time” for a guaranteed hourly minimum rate, real-time location sharing, and Dash Along the Way

DoorDash says it will start giving couriers the ability to earn hourly rates on top of tips.

With the update, couriers will now see the option to “earn by time,” which offers a guaranteed hourly minimum rate for the time they spend on making deliveries. According to DoorDash, the clock starts as soon as a courier accepts an order and ends when it’s dropped off.
