DoorDash Driver Picks Up $900 Grocery Order

When it comes to hiring people to do your grocery shopping, popular apps like Instacart probably come to mind first. However, DoorDash also offers grocery delivery on its platform.

These applications typically determine what payout a driver receives based on the number of items they pick up, coupled with other factors such as the distance they travel and a “heavy payout” for particularly heavy items.

One DoorDash driver, Nasia Eastt (@nasiathemua), took to TikTok to document a massive $900 grocery order that filled her entire Nissan Altima — and the efforts she went to to ensure it received a relatively high payout.

She writes in a text overlay for the video, “No way did we miss that order, the car scrapes the road and we’re driving 15 miles an hour.”

Nasia shows off her back seat, which is filled with giant 36-packs of Brisk Iced Tea, 40-packs of plastic-wrapped containers of Yoo-Hoo, Capri Suns, wrapped candies and sodas. She says in the clip, “When you’re a door dasher and you have to pull a $900 order in your Nissan Altima.”

At the end of the clip, she shows her payout for retrieving the massive order, which totaled $86.09.

DoorDash has taken steps to expand its grocery deliveries. In February 2023, the application announced a partnership with Aldi, known for its budget-friendly approach to grocery shopping. The commercial agreement between the two companies allows people to have the chain’s “award-winning” products delivered directly to them. In fact, DashPass customers can have orders of $35 or more shipped to them for free.

Viewers of Nasia’s video were shocked by the amount of food she was able to pack into her altima. As one commenter wrote, “Ik that transmission cryin.”

Other DoorDash drivers said they, too, filled their vehicles to the gills so as not to miss a high-paying delivery. “Girls, this is how I’m packed in my little Hyundai from truck to steering wheel,” said one user.

DoorDash has often been the subject of criticism from drivers on social media, with many of its gig workers stating they don’t get enough money for their deliveries, both through in-app charges and tips from customers.

The Daily Dot has emailed Nasia and DoorDash for further comment.
