(note: Grubhub rolled out a new pay model in Denver and some other markets on March 11, 2019. This is not the same pay model that is being rolled out in late June of 2019. This is a more recent article with reactions to the newest model, and here is some advice I posted about how to stay profitable even with pay reductions)
Grubhub created quite a stir in the driver community by notifying drivers of a new pay model. They seem to be taking a page from Doordash as they are not providing details of how they will figure pay. In the past, they paid a delivery fee plus a mileage fee. Under the new pay model “You will be paid a per order amount (“Delivery Pay”) + 100% of your tips for every order you deliver.”
Sounds like Doordash, right?
