Do you guys know how much money Foodpanda riders get per month? Some riders can make around RM3,000-RM5,000 per month, depending on how many trips they are clocking in a day.
A Facebook user shared his earning statement working as a Foodpanda rider for two months during the pandemic. With a surge in online ordering since the outbreak of COVID-19, hitting that figure is not hard these days. This guy named Safwan Seth earned more than average income as a rider. His post has garnered over 2.3K likes and 6.4K shares. Many were astonished by his earnings.
Safwan Seth shared the two-month income dating back from November 1, 2020, until December 31, 2020. After clocking 2651 orders in over 725 hours, he managed to earn over RM18,000. Crazy!
However, it explained that this would require the rider to work an average of 12 hours a day and earn an average of RM24 an hour – more than the usual average than most riders earn an hour. Based on the hours spent over two months, we can conclude that he did not take any off days.
As a Foodpanda rider, you really need to work hard
That’s right, it really depends on your dedication and also your customers. In some cases, customers can be fussy, giving wrong information or they don’t pick up your call thus delaying the delivery process. Sometimes, they suddenly cancelled the order which will waste your time. But, it’s all part of the job that a rider has to face.
But remember, there is a price to pay. You will be very tired the next day and you could put your life in danger if you are rushing around too much.
What about the payment rate?
Based on this blog, it is said that every hour, Foodpanda pay RM5 on weekdays and RM6 on weekends. After three months working, your salary will increase by RM6 and RM7 respectively. After six months of working, the salary will increase to RM7.50 and RM8.50. Besides, for each trip, a rider will get a tip of RM3.000.
However, only KL and Selangor follow the hourly payment scheme. For other locations, they use the payment scheme as above. This payment scheme is based on September 2019 and we aren’t sure if they still practice the same payment scheme up till now.
