Harry here. There’s no shortage of companies that you can work for in the on demand economy but Caviar is one that is expanding rapidly and hiring lots of new couriers. Today, RSG senior contributor Christian Perea shares ALL the details about Caviar pay from his first weekend of deliveries with Caviar. His results were pretty impressive so read on to find out how much he made!
Although I have years of experience as an Uber and Lyft driver, I decided to spend a weekend doing delivery with Caviar. It started off a little rough as I got used to delivery, but I quickly learned the ropes and ended up making some pretty good money, all while putting a lot fewer miles on my car and getting a new view of the city. So How much does Caviar pay?
I like to track how much I make per mile driven and, with Caviar, I actually made $3.26/mile on Saturday and $4.75/mile on Sunday. With rideshare, I have found that for every mile I put on my car in San Francisco, I make just $1.50-$2.40. This number is much lower outside of San Francisco, but it is a good way to measure how much you earn in comparison to how much you work. Caviar killed this metric during my test with them over the weekend.
There is a lot of opportunity for an Uber or Lyft driver to do delivery with Caviar, but I also found there is a learning curve. If you can master it, you will have another solid income stream for when rideshare is slow or when you simply want to switch things up a bit.
