Waiting time earnings are 17p per minute for up to 15 minutes and rounded to the nearest minute.

Do I have to wait at pick-up?

If a package isn’t ready, continuing to wait at pick-up is optional. You can:

  • 1️⃣ Contact Support via chat to cancel your order after 30 minutes of waiting.

    Choose “Long Wait At PU” in the chat. If Support cancels your order, we will apply a cancellation fee.

  • 2️⃣ Self-cancel at any time.

    If you self-cancel you will not receive earnings for the delivery.
