The Upfront Cash amount will be topped up into your Cash Wallet shortly after applying to the programme successfully. You can then transfer this amount to your bank account.

It will be deducted from your earned incentives via your Cash Wallet. Should your earned incentives be insufficient, we will deduct from any balance in your Cash or Credit Wallets. The time of deduction varies for each transaction.

Deductions will be made on a weekly basis. However, if you are unable to return the weekly incentives, deductions might occur on a more frequent basis till overdue amounts are cleared.

We will attempt to make deductions from your Cash Wallet periodically until the full amount of incentives has been deducted.

Alternatively, you can top up your Credit Wallet, and we can arrange to make deductions from there.

GrabFood delivery-partner, Thailand

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
