Just joined grabfood and shocked
Day 2 and ive been waiting for 5 hours straight with no orders at all, and im in a supposed hot zone, what the heck is going on here??
Im by no means lazy but I cant earn anything if I cant get an order at all..this is really demoralising man
- Too many riders in that area most probably
- I used to order 5-7 times a week, after grab increased the min order to $15 and increased the avg cost of delivery to $5, I no longer order at all for regular meals. Pretty sure I’m not the only one who decided $20/meal makes no sense whatsoever.
I average around 2 orders a month now when I feel like spending more for a specific craving and it’s too far from my house. Taking that into consideration id say there are a lot less orders on the grab/foodpanda nowadays
- Sounds like you pissed off the algorithm!
- Almost 5-year Grab rider/Food delivery rider here. I suspect that your app may be glitched or something, Try running the in-app diagnostic tool to see if anything changes.
Also every Friday at 6pm sharp is when the optional shifts are released for the following week’s Monday-Thursday. Try to snipe them so that you’re at least securing the minimum guarantee if you don’t get any jobs for the 4 hours that the shift is active.
12MN Saturday is when shifts for next Friday release, 12MN Sun for next Sat and 12MN Monday for next Sunday. Jiayou friend, this industry has extremely high highs and demoralising lows, but it’s never bad for too long 🙂
