Foodpanda Riders Can Earn Up to $6000 a Month

Somebody told me delivery riders earn more than me, I'm not surprised but I am curious to know how much. Sounds like very good money, Foodpanda have this page which shows their compensation:


But is it easy money? Let's see.

So every hour the rider gets paid at least $9 regardless of any delivery made. That's already not bad.

So how many deliveries can a rider make in an hour?

1 is expected, 1 hour for one delivery.
2 is reasonable, 30 minutes for each delivery.
3 is you got to be fast, 20 minutes for each delivery.
4 is you got to be super fast, 15 minutes for each delivery.
5 and above I think it's just plain luck to be able to make it happen or you can teleport or you are the only rider on the road and there is no such thing as traffic light and the sky never rains.

2 hours break.
9 hours work.
30 days work.

Rider 1 who earns $9 per hour = 9 * 9 * 30 = $2430
Rider 2 who earns $9.5 per hour by delivering only in CBD = 9.5 * 9 * 30 = $2565

Let's say every hour each rider can always make 2 deliveries.

22 weekdays can earn = 9 * 8 * 22 = $1584
8 weekends can earn = 9 * 18 * 8 = $1296

Rider 1 total is 2430 + 1584 + 1296 = $5310 a month
Rider 2 total is 2565 + 1584 + 1296 = $5445 a month.

I think the potential is there, but it's just siong, you got to be real fast and real lucky. I wonder out of the total numbers of their riders, how many can make $6000 a month. Definitely not easy money.
