How do Grubhub, Doordash, Postmates and Uber Eats compare with one another as delivery platforms for independent contractors? We’ve taken a look in many of our past posts and podcast episodes at each platform individually. Now it’s time to talk about how they line up.
Let me say this right away: I don’t think there’s a way to say that one is absolutely the best. All of this is subjective, it’s all opinions. I’m seeing good things for each, I’m seeing real problems for each. I think this is why it’s important to have a lot of options rather than just stick with one. When I was in telecom I had a mentor that used to present a variety of provider options and said just pick one, they’re all thieves. I kind of feel that way with gig delivery companies, they’re all scum for their own reasons, but the good news is, we don’t have to just pick one, you know?
