Deliveroo launches same-day payment for riders

It allows riders to avail of their earnings at any time.

Deliveroo riders in Hong Kong can now avail of ‘Get Paid’, a new initiative launched by the company, a feature which allows riders the option to receive their fees as early as the same day.

Riders in Hong Kong currently receive their earnings on a bi-weekly basis, but since its global launch in March, 70% of Deliveroo’s riders have used Get Paid. Up to 25% of active riders on a given day use it, and Deliveroo is seeing riders Get Paid more than once a week, particularly on Sundays.

“Employees today want flexible work that puts them in control of their hours and earnings,” Brian Lo, general manager of Deliveroo Hong Kong, said in a statement.

Get Paid emerges on the heels of other recent Deliveroo initiatives such as last year’s launch of its free insurance package for all on-demand self-employed Deliveroo riders, made available worldwide. The company also provided over 150 riders in Hong Kong with access to 13 first aid training courses administered by the Hong Kong Red Cross.
