What is DoorDash Fast Pay?

Similar to Lyft’s Instant Pay and Uber’s Express Pay options, Fast Pay is a DoorDash payout option that allows delivery drivers to be able to cash out all their earnings instantly if they’re unable to wait till the payout day. 

Introduced in July 2018, this DoorDash option has a small charge fee of $1.99 per transaction so it is advised that you should use this feature less frequently or only during emergencies.

Note that with Fast Pay you cannot cash out earnings for a Dash that you are still on, you can only cash out a Dash delivery when it is over and you are not online on the app.

Setting up DoorDash Fast Pay

The Fast Pay option let DoorDash drivers cash out their deliveries once a day and can be easily set up but before this can be done, some requirements have to be met and they include:

  • You should have an already setup bank account
  • You should have linked your (government-issued) debit card not a prepaid card

       Note that if you alter your debit card details, you’ll have to begin the 7-day waiting period again. 

This 7-day waiting period is also seen as a way of controlling fraud in the sense that a scammer can’t log into your account, add their debit card details, and cash out your earnings immediately.

  5. Select the ‘Set Up Fast Pay ‘ option
  6. Add your debit card details
