The first order that popped up was a $4.25 McDonald's delivery 2.6 miles away which the delivery driver said he "would definitely not take" because the order is "just too small."
He added that his DoorDash acceptance rate (based on the percentage of deliveries that you have accepted out of the most recent 100) is "really low" sitting at around 4-10 per cent but also said he was not trying to be a Top Dasher which allows drivers to have an unlimited schedule.
"When you consider how much gas costs these days, driving to the restaurant, having to wait for it and everything, it’s just not worth it unless you’re getting paid a little more," the TikToker explained and described how he is "very selective" in what orders he does and told viewers "don't be afraid" to be like this.
But he did warn viewers that "once you take an order, don't cancel the order," because the food delivery companies do "frown on that," and can cause you to get paused on the platform.
"Examples of Orders to Decline on DoorDash. Work smarter, not harder don’t worry about status. Status doesn’t pay the bills," he wrote, sharing his main message in the post caption.
