We have taken on your feedback and you can now make shift bookings more easily within your Grab Driver app. Read on to find out more, sign up for your first shift and be prioritized!

⚠️ No action is required from Delivery-Partners who do not wish to sign up for shift pilot system. You can still go online and receive orders as per normal. 

Who is eligible for shifts?

All Delivery-Partners will be able to book shifts every Friday from 4pm onwards.

Shifts during non-peak periods are released in the following format:

  • Diamond Partners – 4pm
  • Sapphire Partners – 4.10pm
  • Ruby Partners – 4.20pm
  • Emerald Partners – 4.30pm

Shifts during peak periods will be released to all delivery-partners at 4.30pm.

Please take note that any new account activation or changes to vehicle types for shift eligibility will be reflected  the following week.
For example: Alex, an Emerald Walker, is not eligible for any shifts. He decides to change to Cycle. He will only see the peak shifts in his booking planner the following week.

Perks & Benefits of Shift Booking

  • ZONAL LOCK IN! You will only get orders where the pick up AND the DROP OFF is WITHIN the shift zone.
  • PRIORITY ALLOCATION You will get priority allocation for jobs during the shift timing, so you can hit your quests faster!
  • EARNINGS STABILITY: You will get a Minimum Trip Fare guarantee* for the shift period. If you earn below the guarantee, we will top it up to the guaranteed amount in the following week.
* Minimum Fare Guarantee may not be available for certain shifts.

Minimum Fare Guarantee (MFG)

What does a Fare guarantee mean?
This refers to the total Fare (amount that you earn on the app, exclusive of zone boost and quest incentives) that you earn for the entire designated shift period. Please refer to your booking planner for details on each shift’s minimum trip fare guarantee.

John (on Bike) earns a total of $37 for his 3 hour lunch shift in Central zone on a weekday. The minimum fare guarantee for that shift is $39. A top up of $2 will be processed to his cash wallet within 6 hours after completion of shift, provided he met all the requirements for the top-ups. However, if John earns $45 for the designated shift, he will not get any top up as he has earned more than the guaranteed amount. 

All other incentives remain the same and are in addition to the trip fares.

  • Requirements for Minimum Fare Guarantee/Bonus
    In order to receive the Minimum Fare Guarantee top-up/Bonus, delivery-partners are to maintain the following: 
  1. Minimum of 90% acceptance rate & Maximum of 10% cancellation rate during the shift
  2. Online for a minimum of 90% of the entire shift duration. Please refer to the following important points on eligible online hours:
    • Auto-Accept must be toggled ON
    • MyDestination must be toggled OFF
    • Only hours that you are online within the shift zone will be counted
    • Following service types must be toggled ON: GrabFood, GrabExpress & GrabMart.

GrabFood delivery-partner, Thailand

Komsan Chiyadis

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.
