Amazon Flex

AmazonFlex pays freelancers between $15 and $25 per hour to deliver packages, depending on the type of car you drive and whether anyone tips. You must be 21 or older; have a sedan, van or closed-bed truck, and have the ability to pass a background check. Find more information on AmazonFlex here.


DoorDash used to keep drivers largely in the dark about how much they’d earn for each food delivery and how far they’d have to drive. But the site has revamped. It is now transparent, encourages tips and is our favorite food delivery option. Learn more about driving for DoorDash here.
