Everyone is right, they only pay from restaurant to customer in a straight line. It is advised to track your mileage for your entire shift . During tax time, you are entitled to whatever actual mileage you put on your car minus what Grubhub has paid for.
For example, you tracked a total of 50 miles for your entire shift but Grubhub only paid for 15. You can write 35 of those miles off on your taxes.
They say they pay from the restaurant to the customers house, however they pay in a straight line. They don’t pay your navigational drive. They measure as if you are driving a straight line through the trees. It is ridiculous.
Restaurant to customer. Use StrideTax to track the other miles.
You will most likely be in the negative on earnings as far as expenses/earnings per ratio. All your profit literally will come from tips.
Not at all. They do pay a small mileage fee. However they pay from restaurant to delivery as the crow flies. They do not pay from delivery to the next restaurant. That is where all of your miles will come from.

$0.50 per mile from the restaurant to the customer in a straight line (not counting turns).
Pay per mile from restaurant to customer ONLY....Not to the restaurant, which many times is over 5 miles...
Not what they claim
