If you’ve been Dashing for a while and are looking to join the Top Dasher club, this guide is for you. We cover the top Dasher requirements, how to re-qualify, if it is worth it, and more. Let’s dive in!

What is the Top Dasher program?

The Top Dasher program is where DoorDash rewards the best Dashers by giving them special benefits.

What are the Top Dasher requirements? 

Here is what DoorDash specifies as the Top Dasher qualifications:

  • Customer rating of at least 4.7
  • Acceptance rate of at least 70%
  • Completion rate of at least 95%
  • 100 completed deliveries during the last month
  • At least 200 lifetime deliveries completed

How does the program work?

If you meet the criteria by 1st of each month, then DoorDash will consider you a Top Dasher. To find out if you are a Top Dasher, first go to the DoorDash driver login, then go to your Account in the Dasher app. Then tap Dasher Rewards. You get any Top Dasher rewards for the remaining of that month.

This means that if you qualify on the 15th of a month, you have to keep your stats up until the 1st of the next month to be a Top Dasher.

How do I re-qualify for this program every month?

You meet the above qualifications on the last day of a month to qualify for the next month.

What are the benefits?

There are several benefits beyond just the ego bump. Here are the key features of being a Top Dasher:

Dash Now anytime

Now you can work food delivery on your schedule.

Prioritized for deliveries when new orders are slow

For the money hackers out there, this is a key benefit. Now you can focus on only accepting high value orders. Some Top Dashers see an immediate increase in their weekly earnings just by using this feature.

Is being a Top Dasher worth it?

The answer to this depends on who you ask. Some drivers love the benefits, while others don’t really see any difference as a Top Dasher. 

For instance, Reddit user GameChangingGame says:

But if you head to the comments, you’ll see that other Dashers love it! For the folks that love being a Top Dasher, they especially appreciate the following:

Ditch strict schedules

Prioritize $$$ orders

Tracking your mileage and expenses is the key to saving on taxes—a.k.a. taking home more money each year.

Self-employed individuals can deduct their non-commuting business mileage. This includes miles that you drive to your first delivery pickup, between deliveries, and back home at the end of the day. 

Everlance helps delivery drivers like you track their mileage and expenses—and make more money. In fact, the average Everlance user saves $6,500 a year—that’s enough to pay for a monthly Netflix subscription for the next 60 years.
