Driving and advertising can easily go hand in hand. Wrapify is just one company that realized this a few years ago and started offering extra money to drivers for simply just driving.
While it may sound too good to be true, it’s not! We’ve actually tested it out ourselves, and it’s proven to be a great way to earn extra money for all the driving you do.
How does it all work? Simple: rideshare, food & grocery delivery, and app-based gig drivers can increase their earnings as well by driving with ads on their cars with Wrapify.
Let’s talk more about how this opportunity works, requirements to get started, how much you can expect to earn, and more.
This article is sponsored by Wrapify, but all of our opinions are our own.
What Is Wrapify?
Wrapify is a company that connects offline and online advertising channels by utilizing everyday drivers. They provide the ads and pay drivers to display them on their vehicles for extra cash. Drivers who run ads on their cars can earn an extra $200-300 on average per month.
The best part is that they prefer people who do a lot of driving in busy areas. That way their advertisements will make as many impressions as possible. Wrapify has been around since 2015 and has partnered with brands like Zoom, Molson Coors, Amazon, and more.

How Does Wrapify Work?
Wrapify provides advertisements in the form of durable wrap coverage that is easy to remove and won’t leave any damage on your vehicle. To get started, you’ll need to download their app and create a free driver account.

Wrapify just launched V1.12 of its app with user upgrades around the support experience, mile logging accuracy, and scheduling automations. They plan to launch V2.0 later this year.
Once the app is downloaded and you’re all set up, you run it in the background any time you drive. The app will record your miles and driving data.
After you record a few days’ worth of sample data (25 miles minimum), you will be eligible to receive campaign offers available in your area. It may take some time to get a campaign offer depending on where you live and the advertiser activity on the platform in that city. Driver pay varies depending on where you drive, how often you drive and how big the advertisement is.
Requirements For Drivers
To be eligible for Wrapify, you must pass a background check and drive a 2010 vehicle or newer. Most vehicles are eligible, including:
- Pick up trucks
The vehicle also shouldn’t have any significant body or paint damage.
You must also be 21 years or older and have a clean driving record.
How Much Can Drivers Get Paid?
How much you can earn with Wrapify varies depending on the type of ad campaign you sign up for along with how often you drive.
Here are the different options and the estimated monthly payments:
- Full coverage car wrap: Earn $264 to $452 per month on average
- Partial coverage car wrap: Earn $196 to $280 per month
- Lite coverage car wrap (covers a smaller section of your vehicle): $181 to $280 per month
Wrapify processes payments every other Friday. Payments usually make it to your bank via direct deposit on the following Tuesday or Wednesday.
Where Is Wrapify Available?
Wrapify is available nationwide. They even partner with car wrap installers in your area so you won’t have to worry about correctly applying the advertisement to your car when you get approved for a campaign. You just need to make sure your vehicle is washed the night before dropping it off to be wrapped.
The company is regularly onboarding campaigns in several metro areas within the following states:
- New York
And many, many more. Check out all the places Wrapify is available here!
What Are People Saying About Wrapify?
Wrapify is rated 3.7 out of 5 stars on the Apple App Store and most drivers have positive feedback about their experience. They say that people often ask them about the ads on their car and they’re able to make extra money just by driving around, so it’s a win-win.
For rideshare drivers, some of the biggest expenses are your vehicle payments and/or maintenance, along with your gas. One driver from Fort Lauderdale says Wrapify is paying for these vehicle expenses for him each month and he’s able to pocket more of his earnings from rideshare driving.
Another driver named Melanie from San Francisco said the sign-up process has been pretty simple and she’s completed several campaigns. One interesting thing she noted was that her rideshare ratings have never been negatively affected by displaying ads on her car.
The company is also very responsive on their social media page, which is a good sign, and overall drivers say the app works well, which is important.
Wrapify Promotions: Opportunities to Earn More With Wrapify
For some campaigns, drivers may have the opportunity to earn bonuses by participating in a SWARM. A SWARM is when multiple wrapped vehicles are all in one place at the same time.
All the cars should drive along a predetermined route for 1 to 2 hours. This allows the drivers to earn an additional flat rate on top of what the campaign pays. The pay for a SWARM is usually anywhere from $25 to $200 per hour.
Wrapify will also offer a $25 roundtrip reimbursement if you need to book transportation to and from the installation shop when dropped your vehicle off to install and/or remove the wrap.
Harry’s Wrapify Experience
Harry recently had his car wrapped to help advertise Curbivore and said the process was smooth and easy. Since Wrapify helps you put the car wrap on, all you have to do is take it to an installation shop in your area.
Harry’s car took about 4 to 5 hours to wrap, so he recommends that you drop it off on a day when you won’t need it. You’ll also need to make sure your car is completely clean so a $5 car wash beforehand is recommended. Wrapify will give you a free Uber ride too which is a nice bonus.
One downside Harry noted was that if you get a campaign that wraps your rear window, it can be difficult to see out of it. Other drivers we asked about Wrapify mentioned this as well, and as Harry mentioned, “Personally, I would prefer not to have the rear window wrapped, but everyone’s perspective is different.”
When asked, Wrapify stated this had not been a problem for the majority of drivers.
Take a look at the final result in his video below:
He also recommends that drivers look for longer campaigns that make the wrapping process worth it. If you have to drop your car off each month and lose a day of driving activity just to wrap it, that can become tedious.
Some drivers we talked to about Wrapify also mentioned they had some issues taking a wrapped vehicle (advertising) for airport pick up and drop offs, so make sure to check your airport’s rules and regulations for rideshare drivers before signing up with a Wrapify campaign.
Pro-tip: Longer campaigns will help you earn more and also reduce the number of times you need to go to the installation shop.
The wrap comes off easily and when Harry took it back to the shop, he was in and out in just 15-20 minutes. You could probably even take the wrap off yourself if you’re the DIY type. There was a bit of a sticky residue on the car when the wrap came off and Wrapify said that this does happen occasionally. Normally, it’s gone after a car wash or two, but if not, they’ll cover a detail for you to get it off.
Summary: A Nice Way to Earn Passive Income
Wrapify provides an easy way for you to make every mile count and extra money when you drive your car. If you’re a rideshare driver, you can enjoy the extra cash to cover expenses like your car payment or increased gas prices.
Even if you aren’t logged into a rideshare app, Wrapify will still pay you for the miles you drive when you’re running errands, shopping, etc. Since they are widely available and easy to use, it’s definitely worth a try.
The only potential downside would be if you don’t like the look of your car wrapped in ads. This is why it’s best to wait for the right campaign and choose your brand advertiser accordingly.
