A strategy for maintaining and increasing profits when Delivery apps are slow

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) $300 per week payments ended September 4. People will order less, and more may turn to deliver for apps like Doordash, Uber Eats, Grubhub and others, further saturating the market with drivers.

At the same time, these apps seem to be racing to see who can pay us less. What do we do when it's harder to make a profit? Is it time to hang it up and move on to more profitable things?

We discuss a strategy that might help keep profitability up. Or even increase it.


And I don't mean just switching between the three main apps. Start looking at other types of platforms. We look at a few of them:

Lesser known food delivery platforms
Catering platforms
Last mile delivery platforms
On demand package delivery platforms
Shopping platforms.

What do you think? What delivery platforms do you have in your market? What's your experience with them? I'd love to hear what options are out there, as I want to build a directory, so please email your comments or leave a comment below.
