Exclusive: Matt Barnes Becomes The Face Of HOPP, A Rideshare App Linking Users To Drivers Based Off Interests

Ball may be life but so is business! From early days of playing basketball to now acting as partners on a new rideshare venture that will bring innovation to the states like never before, Ray Young and Khalid Taylor alongside former NBA player turned entrepreneur, Matt Barnes, are here to change the way you catch a ride from here on out. According to a press release provided to AfroTech, HOPP — the first geosocial ride matchmaking app — offers an added layer of comfort to drivers that it claims the competition does not. The app allows users to book rides based on a personality profile set up within the platform that matches them with people whose interests they align with the most. While the partners stress that you can make money just like you would when driving for Uber and Lyft, that is not the driving factor with the new app, which was founded by co-founders Antoine Allain, Eve Mitchell, and Fabrice Allain. “This is a ‘help you’ service. So, if I’m going in a certain direction,...

How Much Does DoorDash Pay

DoorDash is one of the most popular on-demand food delivery companies out there. How it operates: the company contracts delivery drivers (also known as D ashers ) to deliver prepared food from restaurants to customers who have placed orders online or through the mobile app. Like similar rideshare companies, DoorDash advertises that each Dasher becomes their own boss and can enjoy the flexibility of choosing where, when, and how much they earn. So, h ow much does DoorDash pay exactly?  First, we must determine how Dashers are paid. DoorDash breaks down their pay model as Total Earnings = Base Pay + Promotions + Tips. A Dasher’s base pay, also known as the delivery fee, can range from $2-10+  and is contingent upon three things: estimated time, distance, and desirability of the order.  Deliveries that take more time or are further in distance will earn more pay. Dashers keep 100% of the delivery fee. There are also promotions (or bonuses) that can increase your pay.  Promotions...

Here's Why DoorDash Won't Give Its Drivers Tips

Earlier this year, DoorDash came under fire for its payment structure , which included subsidizing drivers with tips. Essentially, DoorDash gives the tip to drivers, but they count it towards base pay. The problem has been around for years with not only DoorDash but other delivery services. After a case where an Instacart shopper was given a $10 tip for an order but only got 80 cents in base pay — the company ended up changing its policies completely. However, DoorDash has decided to double down on its questionable payment structure. In a blog post titled “Improving the Dasher Experience,” CEO Tony Xu wrote that the company will make changes by….breaking down the earnings after a delivery: “We have always provided transparency on the front end of each dash by showing Dashers the guaranteed minimum, the location, and name of the restaurant, the drop-off location, the size of the order, and the estimated time to complete the delivery. We are now rolling out even more transparency...

A New California Bill Would Give Gig Workers More Protections

Uber and Lyft drivers, along with a list of other gig workers in California, may have something to cheer about now that a new law has passed to give contract workers more protections. The California state Assembly passed AB5, a bill that would require status changes to contract workers to complete essential tasks for companies. The law is also set to impact exotic dancers and manicurists; however, hairstylists, doctors, lawyers, real estate agents, and financial advisers will be exempt from the rules because they work as true independent workers under their own companies, according to Vox. Under AB5, companies can only label workers as contractors if the worker: (a) is free from the company’s control, (b) is doing work that isn’t central to the company’s business, and (c) has an independent business in that industry. If they don’t meet all three of those conditions, then they have to be classified as employees. Misclassification of workers has helped major companies save money for...

DoorDash Launches New Initiative Promoting Immigrant And Refugee Business Owners

Today, DoorDash officially launched Kitchens Without Borders , its new initiative aimed at promoting the businesses of immigrants and refugees. In a blog post introducing the program , CEO Tony Xu wrote: “DoorDash’s mission has always been to connect people with possibility by creating valuable opportunities for entrepreneurs to reach new audiences. For immigrant communities facing heightened barriers to success, that goal has become even more important — and for me, it’s at the heart of the company’s story.” According to the initiative’s website, it aims to spotlight the “human stories of immigrant and refugee business owners, fostering deeper connections to the people making the food we enjoy every day.” The way DoorDash has decided to do that is pretty creative. The website hosts a series of vignettes, where each San Francisco Bay Area business owner can discuss their own experiences. Plus, each restaurant will actually be promoted on DoorDash’s app, and get free delivery for up...
