The Grubhub pay model

Our transparent pay model is based on the experiences of our
Grubhub delivery partners.

If you deliver in the state of California, learn more about how Prop 22 impacts your pay.

Mileage per order

Time spent on the road


Special offers

Total pay

Mileage per order

This is compensation for the distance traveled for each order.


You keep 100% of your tips in addition to your total pay.

Time spent on the road

Sometimes, the mileage doesn’t accurately represent the amount of time an order takes, so we make sure you’re also compensated for your total time on the road. 

Special offers

Grubhub delivery partners can boost their pay by completing Missions (exciting ways to earn extra cash by reaching goals in a set amount of time*), earning in-offer bonuses and participating in fun sweepstakes!


*All special offers are subject to specific markets and time periods.

How delivery partners get paid

Delivery partners can choose between two different payment options:

Direct deposit

Get your balance sent directly to your bank account every Thursday.

Instant Cash Out

Cash out whenever you want to your bank account—free for Chase Bank customers and $0.50 each for other bank customers. Or cash out directly to your debit card for $0.50 per transaction.

A few important things to know

If you receive an offer that has multiple orders, we’ll calculate the estimated total time and mileage for all orders together.

If you receive an offer before completing your current delivery, we’ll calculate estimated time and mileage for the new offer starting from where you completed the current delivery.

Total daily pay for mileage, time, and any applicable promotions or bonuses will be shown as Delivery Pay at the top of your pay summary.

Time and mileage estimates are set when you receive the offer.
