Sayantan Das, Managing Director, foodpanda Malaysia, has announced a revised payment scheme for all its riders outside the Klang Valley, which will take effect today (30 September). He said this in a statement released on Saturday (28 September).
Under this revised scheme, riders (who work on a freelance basis) are now able to earn more income based on the orders they accept, with an increased rate per order received.
For instance, a rider who previously received 5 ringgit per order would now receive 7 ringgit per order. These riders will also be given a 100 ringgit bonus as incentive upon completing 60 hours in a week.
Apart from the above, other features under this scheme are as follows:
- Riders will receive an extra 1 ringgit per order for all orders delivered between 11:00pm and 9:00am daily.
- Riders will also be entitled to an additional bonus from 30 September to 6 October, upon the completion of 80 orders during the period.
- A list of 'hot zones' have been highlighted to riders, to ensure they are able to deliver more during each shift.
"Hence, insurance is provided for all our riders and a revised payment scheme that will benefit riders. foodpanda will continue to provide a safe and versatile work environment to riders who value the flexible lifestyle that being a foodpanda rider provides," he added.
