How much does an average deliverer make in a 3 to 4 hour evening?

9 answers

  • 12 deliveries in 3 hours =
    deliveries per hour

  • I've been delivering for Postmates for 2 weeks. I took the gig because my daughter and I work in the same city but live in another and she doesn't drive. I have to wait 1 to 2 hours or more after I get off for her to get off. So after I get off I turn my app on and wait. It's not much but on average I make enough to fill my car up with gas every week. I get 3 to 4 deliveries a week as I'm not on the app during the dinner rush. My average is about $7.50 a delivery. I think with my situation it's perfect as I do not depend on the income from Postmates; it gives me something to do while waiting on my daughter.

  • It all depends on your area. I deliver in Manhattan Kansas and on average only get three deliveries all during the dinner peak times. But have gotten 5 in one night before and made $50 that night. And I have never gotten anything during the lunch peak.

  • The highest I have made with Postmates was 37$ Four deliveries

  • Thanks for the feedback! This is my second day. I had 8 deliveries for lunch yesterday but only got $45😔

  • Depends on time , and day of week . Usually 2 deliveries per hour maybe 3 if you are by UT .

  • It depends......based on what I have seen within the two weeks I've worked there probably $65- $80.00 or more

  • It depends on various factors. A new driver needs to understand various hotspots on weekend evenings, special occasions that lend well in strong take out services. A round of deliveries can be expedited quickly during core hours. Lunch schedules can be fun and steady during core hours. Low to high payouts differ per time of online activity and volume of customer orders. Tips are helpful and better in the evening or on the weekend.

  • Been driving 3 weeks. 3x per week. First week was trial and error. I now work dinner shifts, 6-8pm. I avoid mob locations, parking nightmares, malls and places that waste time. Some places are not set up for efficient take-out. I typically choose to make 3 deliveries per night (in a two hour period) and my average is $15/hour including tips. I have found that to make it worthwhile, a minimum of 3 deliveries per shift is the sweet spot. I target nicer places that have a better chance of having a higher bill. Higher bills = higher tips. I keep my customers happy by being friendly, communicating and keeping them in the loop, like I would be their personal assistant. I love the texting customer features. I enjoy shopping at grocery stores because I am directly in charge of the result; time, efficiency, service. The platform is fun but you must be a strong independent because there is no support. I love the flexibility to work around my own schedule.
    I personally will avoid lunchtime hours, and rush hours.... Have fun!!! Meet people, explore.
