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.
In line with the above, Das stated that with riders as a key stakeholder in the foodpanda delivery ecosystem, the safety and wellbeing of the riders are important to foodpanda.

"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.
